Spyderco-Byrd Crow

The Crow is a small pocket knife by Byrd a branch of spyderco knives. The knife is 6 5/8'' long (168mm) and has a 2 13/16'' blade (71mm) so it is safe under most regional regulations to carry (check yours). When closed the knife is 3 7/8'' (98mm). It weights 3.5oz (100g).

The blade is made of 8CR13MoV steel, strong enough for most cutting jobs without being a premium material making the knife less expensive. The handles are made of anodized aluminium. The locking mechanism is a liner lock that seemed to be quite stable in our tests.

To assist one handed operation the Crow has a generous thumbhole that makes opening and closing the knife with one hand a simple operation. The pattern in the handle has a nice pattern that makes the grip quite solid.

The shape of the knife and the blade are quite good with a small curve to rest the index finger behind the blade that helps with tighter grips if needed. While the Crow won't be impossible to break it really seems to be solid enough to be used as an EDC knife going thru normal cutting jobs without a problem. The price makes this a very interesting product.
