byrd Cara Cara2 G-10 Handle

Upgrade alert!  byrd knives are the subject of a number of 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 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 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.  A finger choil enhances the ergonomic G-10 handle adding comfort and control.  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.
