SPBY17SBK2: Cara Cara Rescue 2
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco

Just the facts ma’am. Emergency responders, EMTs, ranchers and river guides by and large favor and purchase round tipped blades because they can’t poke or puncture inflatable watercraft, livestock or people. The nature of these professions, place their workers in unpredictable places and situations where cutting without worry about puncturing or poking provides peace of mind. The byrd Cara Cara Rescue has a Sheepfoot, safety shaped 8Cr13Mov stainless steel blade. Its hollow-ground, fully serrated for sliding safely under rope, seatbelts or clothing and offer the highest level cutting performance. Ergonomic comfort is equally important as cutting ability in a rescue knife so the fiberglass reinforced nylon handles are Bi-Directionally Textured and have jimping above the Comet Shaped Hole and along the finger choil. Both models have a four-way clip that carries: right/lefthand, tip-up/tip-down. A half-moon of steel removed from the locking lever (called a David Boye Dent) lessens the chance of gripping the knife tightly enough during use to inadvertently unlock the blade. Safe and smart.

great knife
I am a collector as well as a knife enthusiast. I was a little iffy about this blade at first. And now after a year this knife comes to work everyday with me gets constant use and has never let me down. For the cost it is well worth it.

Pros: Lock Type, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Purpose built, inexpensive, and superior quality for the price. Sharp, partical, and very well thought out. Great steel in the blade with a lot of cutting surface. Locks up solid, but like all lock back blades, take two hands to close which is just fine.

Excellent knife for any price
Really, nothing short of amazing. I've got heaps of spydercos, and this is just as good as any of them. Very solid construction, no shortcuts or crappy materials. Flawless finish, excellent edge and opening. Steel is fine too: holds an edge well and easy to sharpen. Clip is good, locking is good, handle texture and ergonomics are excellent. For 23$, it is a pretty amazing knife, can't really imagine anyone disappointed with it.
