SPBY03PBN2: Cara Cara 2 FRN - Brown
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco
 
Byrd knives are the subject of several bright and fresh engineering refinements for 2010 with improved ergonomics, four-way clips, and full-flat ground blades. Like Spyderco knives, byrd knives are subject to our penchant for C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement. As manufacturing processes and material availability improves, so do the byrds. 

This evolution of the Cara Cara has a full-flat ground high-performance 8Cr13MoV blade. Shaped like a “comet” the hole in the blade symbolizes quality and careful manufacturing tolerances. On the blade’s spine is a group of crosshatching called jimping. Jimping enhances the thumb’s grip on top of the blade making cutting slip-resistant. Available for the first time with a four-way clip that carries tip-up/tip-down or left/right-handed, it attaches inside a pant’s pocket where it rides deep and confidently. Its skeletonized stainless steel liners and textured, injection-molded FRN handles provide the ideal combination of lightweight and a secure grip, even in the most demanding environmental conditions.

Cara Cara 2 a very good edc
A few weeks ago I was considering buying my first Spyderco but I was not sure how to choose a multi purpose edc... Luckely I came across the more than twenty reviews on the black handle Cara Caras and decided that this brown Cara Cara might be a good first choice before spending more money on an Endura.. I am very pleased with my choice because;* the 8cr13 mov steel for the blade is a fine all purpose edc steel., although some steel snobs do not favor it. It holds an edge for a long time if not abused and came very sharp on delivery. Further; this steel is very easy to sharpen and it comes with a full flat grind which makes sharpening even easier.* The ergos on this knife are fantastic. It features a fifty/fifty handle and spine jimped choil for a great hand and thumb grip as well as a deep pebble grain cut handle, giving a very secure hand grip.* Strong construction. The knife is made with five structural screws around the frame as well as three screws securing the easy on/off clip.* The knife blade snaps open with authority with very little effort from the thumb* The blade locks up perfectly centered and secure. No movement or wiggle.The knife is light and a little on the thin side which may not be perfect for a user with XL hands. For me however the handles are a good fit.You can always take points away from a knife for nit picking reasons, but I think that based on what you get with this brown Cara Cara this is a worth five star rating.
