SPBY08GP2: Byrd Raven 2 G10
Byrd Knives focus on providing value, variety and high quality. The BY08GP2 Raven 2 and BY09GP2 Crow 2 offer two-sizes of high-performance G10 handled folder at a reasonable cost. These feel like Tenacious line knives with their quality, fit and finish and they add a little something extra in terms of aesthetics.

As handle materials go, G10 laminate is grip-grabbing and lightweight while it shakes off temperature extremes, chemicals and hard-use without discoloring, warping or peeling. This makes it highly prized for knife handles.

The Raven and Crow modified clip-point shaped blades are made with CTS-BD1 stainless steel. They have a centerline grind and jimping (crosshatching) where the handle and blade connect. Jimping gives the thumb and forefinger traction and cutting manageability over the sharpened edge. Running the handle's full length, tucked inside, are skeletonized steel liners for additional strength and a Michael Walker style LinerLock. The comet shaped (bird's eye) opening hole is a trademark of the byrd knife line and is synonymous with the stringent quality requirements, high performance materials and manufacturing put into each byrd Knife.

Pros: Handle Feel, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Ive had this knife for about 5months now and i love it i use it daily at work from cutting rope and rags to plastic banding and cardboard this knife does it all and the ease of sharpening makes it easy to maintain if your looking for a beater knife this is for you it is a workhorse. My only complaint is the pivot washers are plastic I swapped them for some brass washers and the action is so much smoother

Raven 2
Very nice EDC. Fit and finish is good. Solid lock-up and release. Sharp out of the box with nice edge grind. Blade is centered and no play in any direction. First knife with this blade steel, CTS-BD1, but sounds like it should hold up pretty well to everyday use. Feel is a lot like the Spyderco Tenacious however the blade is thicker all the way to the tip and the liners also seem a little stouter on the Raven 2. The only thing I wish is that Spyderco would have used bronze pivot washers instead of nylon/Teflon (?). Everything else seems very sturdy and well put together. A good buy. Thanks KnifeCenter for great service.
