SPBY11GP2: BY11GP2 Finch 2 G10
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco
The newest addition to the byrd family, the Finch 2 combines a compact, carry-anywhere size with skeletonized stainless steel liners, G10 scales, screw-together construction, and a full-flat-ground blade. Designed for in-pocket carry, the Finch 2 is clipless and includes a lanyard hole for easy attachment to a keychain or lanyard.
The Finch brings elements together to elevate ergonomics and create purchase in the hand. It also holds the position as the smallest byrd folder with G-10 construction. It is engineered to yield maximum cutting performance with a blade under two-inches. A ball chain threaded through the lanyard hole (included) can be used as a keychain or lets you attach the knife to a purse, pocket or zipper pull.
Designing a small knife that feels secure in an adult-sized hand can be challenging. The Finch brings several elements together to elevate ergonomics and create purchase in the user’s hand. The inclusion of jimping (texturing) along the spine and a finger choil on the bottom of the handle let you wrap your hand around the folder for remarkable control and precision over the cutting edge. The back lock is positioned midway on the spine facilitating one hand opening and closing.
The Finch’s blade is high carbon 8Cr13MoV stainless steel that is hollow-ground and available plain edged. The G-10 handle is clipless with a lanyard hole.

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.
Formed in a sheet under high pressure by combining fiberglass and an epoxy resin binder. These handles are lightweight and shaped to ensure a solid grip.
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.
