Byrd knives are a new species of knives produced and imported by Spyderco. An independent standing product line, they offer first time knife buyers or those looking for hard-working and not bank-breaking knives, more options. They also create an alternative to Spyderco's main CLIPIT-line of high performance knives. Just as Spyderco is associated with a spider, byrd Knives resemble various species in the avian world. The Cara Cara is byrd line's newest offering, presenting a cost effective alternative to Spyderco's main CLIPIT-line of high-performance knives that stand independently on their own design, performance merits and high-level of manufacturing. Categorized as a mid-sized all steel folder, the BY03 brings together high-performance features with solid dollar value. The hollow-ground 440C or 8Cr13MoV blade comes plain edged (toothless) or in a combination plain edge/serrated edge. Shaped like a "comet" the hole in the blade symbolizes both quality and tight tolerances adhered to in manufacturing. Capping the blade's spine is a series of crosshatching, which grip the thumb for slip-free cutting. Available in a right-hand configuration, the clip on the handle positions the knife tip-up or tip-down, attaching inside a pant's pocket. When gripped, the ergonomic stainless steel handle becomes a precision cutting extension of the hand. Cut from the lock's release is a David Boye Dent, a safety feature that allows tightly gripping the handle without accidentally releasing the lock.
