    My new "byrd"

    Just pick up my new Byrd the other day and have to say I'm quite impressed w/ the quality. It is their crossbill line. I usually carry a Benchmade w/ me but decided to give this one a try. I know the are Spyderco's sister company or something like that but i didn't want to spend Spyderco money if you know what i mean. I figured @ $30 i couldn't go wrong.
    Does anybody else carry a Byrd? If so, what are your likes or dislikes w/ it if any?

    I bought one for a tool rather than EDC. Something cheap enough that I wouldn't mind hard use on the blade. I like it. Rock solid lockup, lightweight, and can hold an edge decently. Feels good in the hand too.

    I was looking to get a crossbill. How is the size for pocket carry? I carry a Spyderco Calypso Jr. now and it carries in the pocket pretty well.

    Thanks for the heads up. I've never ordered from them before. I'll let you know how the order goes.

    I've had a G10 Cara Cara for about a year and a half and I love it. Locks up good, stays sharp, and feels good. I carry it often.

    No issues with mine whatsoever.

    I received the Crossbill that I ordered earlier this week. Nice knife! I'll give it the once over and locktite the clip screws. First impression is very positive. It has a nice weight and feel very similar (but not equal) to the Spyderco line. The blade looks like it will be durable.

    I'm gonna go find some stuff to cut.

    Are you sure it's a real Cara Cara? There have been problems lately with counterfeits and this certainly doesn't sound like any Cara Cara I've seen and I've got about five of 'em in various configurations. All are extremely solid knives.



    The Spyderco Native (top) and Byrd Cara Cara. The
    blade on the Native is top rate, but the knife construction
    winner is the Byrd by far!





    The G10 version of the Cara Cara is exceptionally
    well made and tight as a proverbial drum.
