Spyderco’s byrd line of knives offers all the functionality and convenience of their core product line at prices that make them hands down the best value in the cutlery industry. Manufactured in China under Spyderco’s close supervision, byrd knives offer a remarkable synthesis of manufacturing quality, performance, reliability, and affordability.
Blades are ground from 8Cr13MoV and CTS BD1 stainless steels, both are durable alloys that include vanadium for enhanced toughness and edge retention. This popular material provides an excellent balance of cutting performance, edge retention, and ease of sharpening, making it the ideal platform for affordable working knives. All byrd knives feature the trademarked “comet” hole that provides decisive one-handed opening with either hand.
They also feature a choice of handle materials that includes textured G-10, Bi-Directional Textured fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN), and satin-finished stainless steel and titanium. Other premium features like phosphor bronze washers, screw-together construction, and four-position clips complete the package and enable these knives to provide the same functionality and versatility as their bestselling Spyderco products.
byrd knives are an ideal option for cost-conscious knife users and also make an affordable gift for friends who are new to knives.
