You just can't beat it for this price
I just received my Finch 2 in the mail today (by the way, I'm a huge frequenter of Knife Center and expect their fantastic shipping, but wow was this thing here fast, I'm extremely impressed!) and this thing is just great... I would note that the only reason I have "cons" for sheath and pocket clip is simply to let people know that it doesn't come with either. Anyway, I've never owned anything in the Byrd line before, but needed something light and to replace my Grasshopper (this knife is going on my keychain) and it's well worth it. Firstly it's always nice to have a knife that can be opened with one hand, even the Byrd style hole isn't a problem (I've read reviews stating that it was a hassle, I noticed nothing), and it is extremely well supported by the lock back. It's no Cold Steel Tri-Ad Lock (I owned one of the Micro's of that, it's fantastic as well) but it sure holds up great. The lock *does* need to be loosened a bit though, that'll come with just using it of course. Out of the box it was paper cutting sharp and light as could be expected. Honestly it truly feels like a Tenacious that's just smaller. For this price, do not hesitate. I also listed "ease of opening" as a con because I can see it taking some getting use to, but considering (for me) this is replacing a knife that could not be opened with one hand, it's an upgrade.
