Byrd Crossbill Confusion...Blade Styles??

Hey, All:

I'm thinking of buying a Byrd Crossbill. I am confused at all the different style of blades I've ran across.

I have ran across Plain Edge, Combo Edge, and Partially Serrated.

Only problem is that afaik there are only 2 model #s: BY07PS and BY07P

I'm assuming PS = Partially Serrated and P = Plain Edge..

So there's some confusion over the PS and CE blades.

Here are pictures I've found.

Partially Serrated:

Combo Edge:

Plain Edge:

So here's the big mystery and where I'm confused. I was under the assumption there were only two styles: PE or CE(Also seen by the fact that there are only two known model #s which leads me to believe there are only 2 different styles, not 3). Most of the blades I've ran across are CE with almost 90% serrated edge...only a few I've ran across where they are 50/50(The first picture).

Where did PS come from??

The picture you have labeled as a combo edge is actually a full serrated. I don't think the full serrated has been marketed. CE and PS (Combo Edge and Part Serrated) are the same thing. ;)

Or perhaps the CE/PS is the one that hasn't been marketed. I never have looked at the Crossbills.

The one I have labeled "Combo Edge" seems to be the picture I'm finding the most associated with the knife. The one labeled "Partially Serrated" is the picture I rarely run across.
 
If you are asking me, you're talking to the wrong guy. I EDC a Manix among other things :D
The Cara Cara is the size of an Endura, which is a bit large for some people. It is longer than the Flight/Pelican/Crossbill group.
Sal has said they are going to test a G-10 Flight, which I am looking forward to. I like the Flight except for the SS handles.

As for the pictures, as far as I know, the fully serrated model has not gone into production (that is the pic labeled combo edge). Most internet sellers seem to use stock photos rather than taking their own, and many are not too careful about getting the right picture for the actual item on hand. I have seen a lot of cases where a seller has a picture of a part serrated knife that is used for plain, serrated and combo edge listings.

I know the folks at Knives Plus, and I will bet that if you order a Crossbill from them, it will look like their picture.

Great, thanks for the info.
