SPBY03GP2: Cara Cara 2 G-10
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco

Upgrade alert! byrd knives are the subject of a number of 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 is the Cara Cara2 with a G-10 handle. It 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. A finger choil enhances the ergonomic G-10 handle adding comfort and control. Mid-positioned back lock has a David Boye cut away dent, a safety feature allowing the handle to be tightly gripped without unintentionally releasing the lock.

Lockback

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.

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: Overall Quality, None
It's comfortable and effect, a good knife for lighter tasks and food.
This is a good little knife, not too heavy, not too light--you know it's in your pocket but it's not burdensome, I don't think. It has a nice long blade, I found it best for food prep. I tried once to pick a piece of what I think was hardened drywall compound off the ground and when I stabbed into it at first, I curled the very tip of the knife, and then as I scraped the piece of the ground, the blade chipped a little bit--definitely not its intended use, but still be careful with this knife! It was very sharp, but the edge grind was uneven, in fact, the blade itself may have been skewed a little to one side (it was hard to tell). It worked fine for everything I used it for. I didn't know Spyderco was made in China, maybe not ideal but not the end of the world either--but, they tend to hide that in their pictures, sometimes the description will tell you, though.

a cheap ffg endura 4 in G10 imitation
nice EDC, viable as a weapon of opportunity if self defense would be a necessity. The material are nice, the mid quality G10 is nice, not slick nor too grippy. The ergonomics are excellent and the lock-up seem solid enough. The jimped choils are a welcomed feature. The only thing found lacking is the fit and finish. The grind of the releaf edge is a little un-even and one of the liner isn't flush with the lock bar at the blade pivot leaving some space in between on mine. So that been said you do get what you pay for, except for the designing cost that went in the spyderco Endura, while still having a sweet knife for the money.
