Byrd knives are the subject of several engineering refinements 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 spine is a group of crosshatching called jimping which 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. The 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.
