Details

The Byrd Tern is a non-locking folder. The Tern has a black G-10 handle resistant to warping and fading. The blade is held in the open position during cutting by a notched-joint at the knife's pivot. When closing the blade, the notch produces resistance functionally similar to traditional slip-joint penknife. To enhance control and comfort there is a deep finger choil which places the index finger into a position directly under the thumb on the bottom of the blade.

Placing the index finger in the choil, the finger acts as a stop, inhibiting the blade from closing when cutting and allows the user to choke-up closer to the cutting edge with comfort and dexterity. A wire clip positions the folder to carry deep in a pocket, tip-up and ready for use either left or right-handed.

The Tern has an 8Cr13Mov leaf-shaped, full flat-ground blade available in a plain edge. The handle is assembled with screw-together construction and a lanyard hole located at the handle's edge accommodates secondary retention through attachment of a lanyard or thong.
