Byrd Flight Folder 3.4 in Combo Blade SS Handle
The Flight has a hollow-ground blade manufactured using 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is similar to AUS-8 in its properties, performance and function. 8Cr13MoV steel contains both molybdenum and vanadium. Molybdenum enhances the strength and hardness of the steel, vanadium its wear resistance and toughness. The Byrd Flight Stainless has a clip point blade that is ground from the spine, angling downward. The sharpened edge is then ground upward and the two angles intersecting near the tip, for cutting power centered around th tip where a blade sees great use.The comet shaped opening hole is a trademark of the byrd line and is synonymous with the stringent quality requirements, high performance materials and manufacturing, which go into every knife.

Backlock locking mechanism with David Boye dent. Jimping on spine for better control. Stainless handle can be embellished with engraving. Dual finger indents create an ergonomic gripping spot to choke-up nearer the cutting edge. Two-position pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down carry.
