Product Description

Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key. Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, "You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange." True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable. Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials. As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.

Pros: Great shape makes cutting easier, clip is reversible, holds a cutting edge very well. comfortable grip, easy one-handed open, very solid locking mechanism.

Cons: a little big and a bit heavy.

I've been carrying thin a Gerber 2"blade for about 20 years. It's a nice knife, but I wanted something with a clip to keep it out of my pocket, and something with a longer cutting edge.

This Spyderco Crossbill is nearly perfect. The grip is comfortable and the shape prevents slipping. The bird's eye shaped hole in the blade makes one handed opening very quick and simple. The reversible clip makes point up or point down clipping simple. It came razor sharp, literally. I shaved off a little hair on my arm to test it.

The locking mechanism keeps your hands out of the way of the blade and it's recessed to prevent accidental unlocking.

Most of all I love the curved blade. The shape look a little menacing, but really it's the perfect utility shape. The shape of the blade makes slicing through cloth, cardboard, rope, or just about anything a bit easier because the pulling motion of cutting applies a solid pressure for the full length of the blade, all of the way to the tip. This is unlike a standard curved blade where the pressure decreases as the cut moves toward the tip that curves away from the cut.

It's full stainless steel construction is a little heavy. It feels good in the hand, but a bit large in the pocket.

I can't imagine it would ever break, but if I ever lose it, I'll definitely buy another.

I get a compliment on this knife at least once a week. It is sharp, stylish and super cool looking. When taking this knife out you know you mean business. Whether it is to cut open a box, slice up some rope, to fine cutting like using an x-acto knife or cutting boxes down to size, this knife does it all. Has a great look that can be laser engraved for gifts or personalize it for your own tastes or to let your friends know this is your knife with a "Property of _______" placed on it. I like that it is also a lock back knife because I have had knives in the past that are frame lock or liner lock and that mechanism has failed and I got cut. It snaps into place and you know it will stay open until you release the lock and since it is so sturdy it makes you use both hands to close it so you do not run the risk of cutting yourself. Can be deployed quickly with gripping the hole on the blade and snapping downward with some force for one handed opening if needed. Can also be carried blade up or down left or right pocket because the pocket clip is removable and there are pre-installed holes for relocation or looks good completely devoid of pocket clip. I would but again and again and again. Very easy to sharpen with Accusharp knife sharpener as well, which made it sharper than I received which I didn't think was possible.

Two years later and I am still using this knife as my EDC. I love the look of this knife and it holds an edge well. Sharpening is not difficult for me. The belt clip is loose but I actually like it a little loose compared to tight. The lockback mechanism works flawlessly and this knife still gets a lot of attention when I bring it out. If you want a more discrete knife I would look for a smaller knife as this thing is sized for large hands and work. Still a great knife at a great price.

This was my first Byrd brand knife. I'd never had a Spyderco because they were pricier than the Kershaws & Cold Steels that had served me well so why spend more, right?

The story of" Byrd" however is both fascinating & informative for the interested a knife consumer/collector. Basically, Spyderco was seeing a flood of cheap Chinese copies of their own designs (all made in the USA). So they decided to kill the copycats by starting their own line of Chinese made, Spyderco designed knives constructed with cheaper (yet perfectly respectable) steel. It worked!

The result is a line of SpyderClones designed, marketed, and authorized by Spyderco! Thus ensuring that cheap price wouldn't mean cheapo knife.

This hawkbill is gorgeous! Basically a Spyderco Harpy with very similar dimensions (compare on Amazon).

Fits well in my medium sized man hands and, after 1 or 2 stiff days out of the box, now opens with a flick of the wrist. There's no spring or opening assist, but the comet hole/Spydeyhole gives a nice thumb flicker. It's scary sharp, both blade and tip, and heavy enough to feel solid in the hand. This is not a small folder, but it fits nicely in front pocket, tip-up carry and draws smoothly. The lock back is solid and confidence inducing with no blade play or wiggle.

This is such a shocking bargain of a knife, I ordered 2 more the next day (stainless Flight & stainless Meadowlark 2); both ALMOST as elegant as this one and equally well built. I might get a CaraCara 2 as well since these things are like potato chips where one is so tasty it just makes you hungrier for another.

Great looking, but practical, inexpensive folder. Suitable for hard work, show piece or gift. Way more impressive than a knife in this price range should be.
