Spyderco Byrd BY03PBN2 Cara Cara 2 Folding Knife 3.75" Plain Flat-Ground Blade, Brown FRN Handles
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.

A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.
