These knives are designed and manufactured in China from high grade materials in accordance with the quality standards set down by Spyderco.
The blades are made from 8Cr13M0V stainless steel, which is comparable to Japanese AUS8 stainless steel, as far as quality is concerned.
The Byrd Crossbill model with its stainless steel handle is a fine example of one of the knives in this range.
The knife features a blade that is shaped like a hawk’s bill. It can easily be opened using one hand thanks to the comet-shaped hole located in the blade. It also features a sturdy and reliable back-lock system that locks the blade securely into place when opened. The curved point prevents slippage when cutting.
Cut out of the lock’s release is an added safety feature known as a Boye dent, which allows you to tightly grip the handle without fear of accidentally releasing the lock.
The knife also features a sturdy two-way pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down carry.
