Blacktag is our economy line of knives. They are not marked with the Flying Steel logo and are not covered by a maintenance plan. Blacktag items feature the core quality of Flying Steel knives without the impeccable finish and customer support. Blacktag items may include blemishes, inconsistencies, and imperfections.
The Songbird is designed around a mass-at-balance and mass-at-center concept, with a symmetric mass distribution. This means that the bulk of the weight is in the middle, while the handle and blade are equally light. The goal of the mass-at-balance concept is inherent stability and resistance to rotation. This concept is very different than the norm, and the Songbird will require a technique adjustment for those who are accustomed to a handle-heavy knife.
