Cons: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Sheath, None
Pretty good for the price
I use this knife just for cutting everyday things like plastic or fruit. It take some time before it sharpens, but its simple and to the point in how it can be used and is easy to use. I would have like to have known how blunt it would be before ordering and a recommended sharpener for carbon steel.

k-Lock) these knives would probably still have thumbnail slits and require both hands for opening and closing the blade. And it should be little wonder why Spyderco provides such a variety of back-locks -- the reliability of the design is etched in stone. Enter the Byrd series of Spyderco knives and we find that most of these folders are back-locks, and all except one I have purchased were acceptable in their appearances considering the inherent rusticity of the series. They are every bit usable, and under certain conditions can be the better choice. Upon receiving this Byrd Flight it immediately took the place of my Cara Cara2 since both knives are back-locks and are very similar in size and design. The reason is because after reading how Spyderco has implemented a better build process in this latest 2nd generation of Byrds, instead of better, what I'm observing are blades that appear rough and wavy as if they were somehow passed over and sent out prior to being completed. The blade of the now almost extinct Flight is superior, as are all the blades of the Byrds I have that were hollow-ground sharpened.

Spyderco Byrd Flight is a great knife!
This is a great knife for the price. Nearly the quality of a Spyderco. Very solid feel, tight blade, extremely sharp. I accidentally cut myself while polishing the blade, so be careful! I changed the clip position so that it is tip up. For me it is more natural to open that way. Might order the G10 version next.
