SPBY03PBK2: Cara Cara 2 FRN
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.

The newest 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 light weight and a secure grip, even in the most demanding environmental conditions.

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.

Great Value Knife
This Knife for $20 is a great buy. It's large, yet lightweight. And the lock up is dead solid with no movement either way. The opening may be a little stiff out of the box but it should loosen over time. To get a fast deployment, I just used the age old trick of putting a zip tie inside the "bird's eye" to act similar to Emerson's wave feature. That inexpensive modification, I find to work really well. The blade centering is terrible, but imperfect blade centering almost never bothers me as long as it doesn't inhibit deployment of the blade. For the price point, that shouldn't really be much of a gripe to anybody.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel
Everything except handle texture is great
For the price it is a great value except the handle texture is a bit discomforting and also the byrd hole (spydie hole on blade) is too sharp. If they had very slightly rounded the hole it would be preferred but all on all for the price point great value
