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.

Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
Lockback The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.

Great Budget Alternative to the Spyderco Endura
The Cara Cara 2 comes from Spyderco’s dedicated budget brand: Byrd Knives. The Byrd Knives brand is technically a distinct entity from Spyderco, but it brings all the signature elements of the Spyderco design language to a lower price point.The Cara Cara 2 has the same overall size and blade length as a Spyderco Endura, but with more budget-oriented materials and construction. The blade steel is 8Cr13MoV, and comes in either plain edge or partially serrated. The handles are fiberglass reinforced nylon (available in several different colors, naturally) and they offer a ton of grip thanks to a bi-directional texture much like the upmarket Spyderco.One thing they’ve done with the Cara Cara 2, unlike the Endura on which it’s based, is the addition of a forward finger choil divided between the front of the handle and the heel of the blade. This “50/50” choil eliminates the dead zone around the pivot that most folders have to contend with and turns it into a place that can be used for choking up to get more fine control over the blade.The mid-back lock is easy to open and close one-handed, and it’s completely ambidextrous. With the ability to mount the clip in any orientation (tip up/down; left/right), this is another great option that I can recommend to just about anyone.

Field cleaning wild hods
I’m knife user more than a collector! I love to hunt wild hogs with dogs! One very successful hunting trip I killed 4 hogs! This knife was excellent with ceramic rod! Normally I carry a fixed blade skinning blade but forgot to carry on this trip. The pig sticker I carry is too big and not that sharp for field cleaning. This 8cr13mov steel did well with little honing between each hog I cleaned. I never carry a high dollar knife on my hunting trips! Too big of a chance of losing a knife while running around in swamps! Very slight rust spots from the blood but cleaned up well at the of the day! Highly recommend this knife!!!

Pros: Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Type
Cons: None
Very very nice for twenty bucks.
Talk about value. It is hard to believe $100 and up knives are still selling. Once again KnifeCenter hit a home run with price, communication and shipping.
