Great looking little knife mate, ive got my first Byrd on the way, the hawkbill.AWOODILL wrote: ↑Fri Jan 08, 2021 4:03 pmI purchased my Byrd Meadowlark 2 about two months ago. Being new to the knife hobby/obsession/addiction, I wanted to see if I actually liked the "weird-looking knives with the hole in the blade". :) I LOVED it. Absolutely bulletproof - the lock engages so hard I could not believe this was a "bargain/budget brand" knife. It only took about 2 weeks for me to get online and order my Efficient from the online store. :) I am now saving my pennies to get my dream knife: the Para 3.
So no, there is not a Byrd in my pocket, but it is in my EDC bag as my #1 backup.
Thank you, sal! Just FYI: I had a terrific experience with my first purchase from the online store - even received a wonderful reply email from Joyce Laituri after I dropped a quick note of thanks. You've got a great team. :)

I bought a Meadowlark in Ti hoping to swap a hawkbill blade into it (also a Ti Cara Cara looking to swap the waved Cara Cara blade if successful), but found that reassembling the FRN Meadowlark was difficult - there was a kind of plastic pin toward the middle of the body that tended to twist - I put it back together for fear of messing up two knives and while it works okay the action isn't very good. Any suggestions for the swap? Is the Ti one easier to insert a blade into? Any tutorials/videos you recommend? I suspect I simply missed a good way to do it right but I'd rather leave them alone than have two knives that didn't seem quite right.

I have a few worthless folders. This was the least expensive and most enduring. It was also used the hardest. A new Delica should arrive today.
