Byrd Knives are a species of knives produced and imported by Spyderco. The hollow-ground 8Cr13MoV blade is available plain edged (toothless) or a combination plain edge/serrated edge configuration and fitted with a "comet" shaped opening hole that is unique to byrd designs and represents a symbol of quality. Texturing crosshatches the blade's spine gripping the thumbprint for slip free cutting. Its stainless steel handle fits in the hand ergonomically for right-hand use with a tip-up/tip-down carry clothing clip letting you clip the knife to the top of your pocket, pants or belt. With a reaffirming click the blade locks open with a backlock featuring a David Boye dent. This crescent removed from the lock release acts as a safety feature allowing the handle be tightly gripped without the possibility of unintentionally releasing the lock.
