Cara Cara 2 and Meadowlark 2
The Cara Cara 2 and Meadowlark 2 are really nice working knives. The main differences from their previous versions are the full flat grind and the clips I believe. I’m afraid I didn’t catch much of the info when these models were passed around. From shortly handling them at the meet, I thought they were way too nice for their price. Very solid lockup, no blade play and the clips were nicely rounded. Previous Byrds I owned had some sharp edges.
Meadowlark 2 FRN
This is the FRN Meadowlark 2 with a completely FRN mold. I think this FRN pattern is a bit more ‘friendly’ to the hand. The earlier FRN mold had more aggressive checkering on the surface of the handle slabs.
I think the Catbyrd is pretty much the flagship of the Byrd line, and this G10 version was a really nice variation. I´d love to see a head-to-head review between this G10 Catbyrd and a Military.
