The Meadowlark 2 meets the same requirements. My original Meadowlark had a steel body. The FRN is a nice alternative. With full steel liners, there is no give at all to the blade. With the same basic design as the Spyderco FFG Delica 4, and the same steel as Spyderco's economy models (8Cr13MoV), this is the best value in an EDC knife that I've found yet. It weighs less than my original Meadowlark with full steel construction, and is so light I hardly notice in the pocket on my khakis. The full steel versions always were pulling down on my pocket when I sat down. Not a problem with the FRN version.
The FRN scales are aggressive without being too painful. I'm able to get a nice grip on them without the slipping that I had on the steel handled original. As far as weight in the hand, I do prefer the G-10 model, as I mentioned in another review, but that's a minor point.
The Spyderco pocketclip design is an improvement over the old Byrd design, plus, the clip can be mounted in any one of the four corners of the knife, unlike the original Meadowlark, which only had two mounting choices.
Packaging, if you care, has changed from the old, big box store, blister pack, to a slide-by box, consistent with the Spyderco line.
Blade design is also more substantial than the original. The original Meadowlark had a "beak" in front of the bird's eye on the blade. The Meadowlark 2 continues straight from the top of the blade down to the tip. The flat ground blade is also a nice improvement over the old hollow ground blade. One advantage, other than price, that Byrd has over Spyderco, IMO, is the Byrd blades all have a choil at the base of the blade, i.e., a space for your index finger to go on the blade if you want to choke up on it.
If you're not restricted by local laws, buy the Cara Cara 2 (cf. to the Endura 4). If you are restricted, as I am, go with the Meadowlark 2. At $19 it's less than half the price of the Delica. Buy a nice sharpener, sharpen it a couple of times a year, and you won't notice the difference.
Update: 12/28/2015 I have had this knife for 3 years now and it has became my favorite edc knife. So far it has withstand everything from sweat, abuse, and threat of being replace by other knifes but I simply just couldn't kill it. The joint of the knife is still as tight as the first week I got it and all of its hardware have all held up to the abuse.
I intentionally bought this for my kids because they will inevitably lose a knife or two, but they have a quality blade, and learn safe practices along the way using a tool that is smaller (their size).
I have a Military in LH and really love it - for a massively overbuilt folder it really shines. For my son we wanted to step into this gradually - what if he loses it or breaks it? This was a great knife to start with. Also...since it's smaller it wouldn't spark the "oh my!" reactions that sometimes come when you whip out the biggie Military.
So he's really into hammock camping and fires. The guys (and gals) in his group really love to hang out at the fire...and probably 1/2 dozen of us parents have set up fire pits on our property for them to go between...plus all the campgrounds and forest campsites that are close...it's been a good year for them...lots of fires and hanging out.
Most of the boys - mine included - have a sturdy fixed blade and a hatchet or axe for the heavy use...but you know DARN well that a kid will use what's close and at hand first. lol. I can tell by the HEAVY useage marks on this little knife that it sees a LOT more use than his ESEE RC-3 Military fixed blade. (He LOVES the ESEE 3, but like I said...if you have to walk back to your truck to get the fixed blade...or you can use the knife clipped to your pocket...and you are 16...well...haha.
OUT OF THE BOX - ours needed a few TWEAKS. Hey, it's a $20ish knife...I'm ok with that. We sanded the 'spydie-hole' with some sandpaper, it was a little rough. In 3 minutes it was perfectly smooth. The FRN material (the handle scales) had a few sharp edges and one part sticking out (from the casting process I guess)and it too got sanded down quickly and that was that. Also the factory edge was fair...certainly not like a US made Spyderco...but my gosh...this cost a fraction...we touched up the edge quickly and then it shaved hair.
beyond the mucho kindling I'm sure he's processed with it...I've seen it used for countless boxes, envelopes, food prep like cutting sausage, fruits, potatoes, jerky, dicing up potatoes , and cleaning lots of fish. The serrated portion is awesome at rope, paracord, and sawing motions...and is a BREEZE to sharpen with the little cheap pocket Smith sharpeners. (Or any with that little "rod" - sharpens serrated edges SO easy - it's a cinch!)
The blade itself is super easy to sharpen - much easier than my Military...it's somewhere between the hardness of that and the sorta soft steel in the swiss army knives we have. As I move along in the 'knife journey' - to be honest...I'd rather have a steel that I can sharpen easily OVER a steel that holds an edge forever but is a real pain to sharpen. I sorta like cleaning my guns...and don't mind sharpening my blades every so often - feels OK to me - and it's very easy with this knife. I did it for awhile...taught my son...now he keeps it very sharp on his own with not much effort on the stone and strop. Plus...the serrated edge gets used the most - and it stays sharper longer anyway...and again...is super easy to sharpen with those rod-type sharpeners (we got a few of the inepensive smith ones here on Amazon.)
I am still thinkng of getting him a Delica as a 'step up' in the same size range...but maybe I'll just wait another year and move him all the way up to a Military or Paramilitary 2 when he is 18 next year...but it's awful hard to ignore the fact that this in-expensive version has performed SO well for so little cost.
I'm a tip-down person (from the Military useage) and so far this knife has seen both tip up and down useage - mostly tip down I'd bet thru this past year. All the various carry positions work great with this knife.
WISH the clip were black! To blend in better in pockets - but we solved this by making a stencil that slides under the clip and then just hit the clip with some flat black spray paint -takes 10 seconds and do it about once a month...and viola! the clip is flat black and blends in well with pockets.
oh yeah...the clip is very strong too. I saw this knife clipped to his pack...survive a tumble from the mtn bike on a trail...and never move or separate from the pack.
cleaning the knife is easy - we just run it under hot water for a bit and dry it in front of a fan and hit it with wd-40 and it's done. simple.
the blade takes on a nice bit of 'wear marks' over time with HEAVY useage...but again...this was a year that covered my teen son's use and abuse - I'm sure it went thru more in this past year than a lot of adults will put their blades thru in 10 years. lol.
Am thinking of picking up another actually. especially after writing all this - it's really been a good blade.
