SPBY05PS: BY05PS byrd Flight
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco
The Flight has a hollow-ground blade manufactured using 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is similar to AUS-8 in its properties, performance and function. 8Cr13MoV steel contains both molybdenum and vanadium. Molybdenum enhances the strength and hardness of the steel, vanadium its wear resistance and toughness. Carbon augments the steel's tensile strength and increases its resistance to wear and abrasion. Resulting from this recipe is blade steel that retains a sharp cutting edge over time and use. Most byrds are available with a plain or combination plain/serrated cutting edge.

The "comet" shaped opening hole is a trademark of the byrd line and is synonymous with the stringent quality requirements, high performance materials and manufacturing, which go into every knife. fully stainless handles have a sequence of ergonomic curves that fit into the palm for comfort and fatigue-free control while cutting. For additional safety, a portion of the lock release is ground away. This is a design add-on conceived by custom knifemaker David Boye and eliminates the chance of gripping the knife tightly enough to unintentionally release the lock. All byrds feature a pocket clip that clips the knife inside a pocket and it attaches to either end of the folder for tip-up or tip-down right-hand carry.

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.

Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability and look and feel great.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
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.

Tough, Durable, and Economic
I use this knife every day, and have carried it for eight years now. It is strong, and yet very thin and sleek, so it fits in the pocket without discomfort. The blade holds an edge quite well, even under the rough duty I demand of it. I just bought two more to put in different field gear, and was delighted at the economical price for this beauty. I heartily recommend it!

What a bargain!
When I first held the knife I was amazed! Beautiful finish, solid lock-up, razor sharp combo edge, flicks open fast! The knife is although very slippery but that's what to expect with a stainless steel handle. This is a great EDC for medium cutting tasks. My only complaint is it has just a tad bit play and I'm unable to tighten it; no pivit. But that's ok not much though, still a great EDC folder. For ony $30 bucks(that includes shipping!), you get alot for what you pay for. Again as always, thanks knifecenter for great customer service.
