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.

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.
8CR13 Stainless Steel

One Handed Finch Opening
For easier one-handed opening, file down the black handle material next to the spyder hole, about the width of your thumb, so that you create a gentle sloping tamp to the hole, from about mid-handle to liner. Makes all the difference. I just lost Finch after several years of daily use. I have an expensive Benchmade assisted opening folder that rarely leaves my waistband, but the Finch is in constant daily use. Many years ago I got tired of larger pocket knives wearing holes in my jeans. I went to a two small knife system for EDC: a common little Gentleman’s Victorinox and a two inch lockback like the Finch. For size and price the Finch is unbeatable, and it holds a decent edge if you use a quality sharpening system like Lansky.

Nice Pen Knife
Still searching for a good "Restricted Knife Zone" (Chicago, etc.), knife. "Designing a small knife that feels secure in an adult-sized hand can be challenging." - Product Description. Unfortunately, they did not meet that challenge, unless you're an adult chimpanzee. The grip is inadequate for doing any real cutting, other than light, careful duty. "The back lock is positioned midway on the spine facilitating one hand opening and closing." - Product Description. Maybe Leprechauns are flicking this blade out with their thumbs, but it ain't happening with my big thumbs. That said, they never said it was the Chicago Knife I am searching for. This is by far the nicest pen knife I've ever owned, and I don't mind using both hands to open it. As always, love Spyderco's flat grinds, and this blade style. Great pen knife, and would make a nice gift. Knife Maker Challenge: Heavy duty Chicago legal knife with full ergo grip. Who cares if the grip is longer than the blade? Make it a jack knife and put a bottle opener/seat belt cutter in the other end for a practical man-tool.
