Spyderco's entry-level knives, the byrd knife line, focuses on providing value, variety and high quality. The BY09 Crow joins the line-up offering a high-performance aluminum handled folder at a reasonable cost. The handle's unique feathered pattern radiates bi-directionally outward from the center creating tactile resistance in the palm when cutting in a forward or backward motion. The blade is made with 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a centerline grind and jimping (crosshatching) where handle and blade connect. Jimping gives the thumb and forefinger traction and cutting manageability over the sharpened edge. Running the length of the handle, tucked inside, are full-length steel liners and a Michael Walker style LinerLock. The comet shaped opening hole is a trademark of the byrd knife line and is synonymous with the stringent quality requirements, high performance materials and manufacturing put into each byrd knife.
