SPBY03PBK2: Cara Cara 2 FRN
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco

Byrd knives are the subject of several bright and fresh 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 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. Its skeletonized stainless steel liners and textured, injection-molded FRN handles provide the ideal combination of light weight and a secure grip, even in the most demanding environmental conditions.

A lot of knife for the price
I am very impressed with this knife. I purchased it to use as an EDC and when camping. I love the light weight, the grippy handle scales and the quick, one-thumb opening. I also prefer lockbacks to liner lock knives, so that was a plus for me. The jimping on the back of the blade and the finger choil are a nice touch, the jimping on the back of the handle doesn't work quite as well, but it's better than none. There is one thing more that really made me love this knife - it's truly ambidextrous, which is a big deal for a southpaw. A lot of knife for the money.

Bang for your buck!
The Byrd Cara Cara 2 FRN is an incredible value priced blade. The materials are rather basic, but the fit and finish is at least as good as the USA made Spydercos that I've handled. It's very light, and has an excellent blade length for kitchen chores, camp chores, and everything in between, think EDC. The blade steel is 8cr13mov, which with a good heat treatment like you'll get here, is an excellent steel. All in all, for about 25 bucks you can get this shipped to your door, and for that, it's one of the best deals you can get. I highly recommend it.

excellent knife for the price
Once again Knife Center has provided an exceptional value in a reasonably priced product. I love the design of this Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara. It has a good feel in the hand and is surprisingly light. It is very sharp out of the box. It doesn't have bushings but it opens very smoothly and has no play in the blade. I use it for edc in which it typically ends up cutting cardboard, string, rope, tape and sometimes food, whatever. Some might find the texture on the handle a little rough for heavy use but it's fine for me. I recently bought the Ontario Rat 1 which I also like very much. I trade off between the two knives for my edc. When I am carrying one I have a hard time setting it aside to carry the other. That's how much I like them both. I highly recommend them both and would purchase them again if needed without any hesitation.
