Product Description

The Crossbill model has a hollow-ground blade manufactured using 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is similar to Aus-8 in its properties, performance and function. 8Cr13MoV steel contains both molybdenum and vanadium. Molybdenum enhances the strength and hardness of the steel, vanadium its wear resistance and toughness. Carbon augments the steel's tensile strength and increases its resistance to wear and abrasion. Resulting from this recipe is blade steel that retains a sharp cutting edge over time and use. The "comet" shaped opening hole is a trademark of the byrd line and is synonymous with the stringent quality requirements, high performance materials and manufacturing, which go into every knife. fully stainless handles have a sequence of ergonomic curves that fit into the palm for comfort and fatigue-free control while cutting. For additional safty, a portion of the lock release is ground away. This is a design add-on conceived by custom knifemaker David Boye and eliminates the chance of gripping the knife tightly enough to unintentionally release the lock. All byrds feature a pocket clip that clips the knife inside a pocket and it attaches to either end of the folder for tip-up or tip-down right-hand carry.

The blade comes razor sharp and sharpens nicely.
Justin Kelly
The locking mechanism keeps your hands out of the way of the blade and it's recessed to prevent accidental unlocking.

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.

Style Name: A) Plain Edge Verified Purchase
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.

The pocket clip is way under powered for the weight of the knife. Also the torx screws holding it on are too small. Sharp contours on the hinge end of the knife are uncomfortable in your pocket to say the least. The blade design is awesome. Great cutting force. Would not buy again though

Style Name: B) Serrated Edge Verified Purchase
I wanted this knife to carry in the orchard to harvest or do general duty. Being SS should mean it won't rust and it can get wet and dirty. it is doing all that. It is a bit heavy in the pocket but the clip is working well and it stays put and comes out and back OK. One thing I don't like is the lock: of course it is an old style lock back requiring some finagling to remove the lock ( I would prefer to have a one-hand operation as my other hand is generally full of something I just cut off), but even so, and I knew that when I bought it, this lock is very hard to operate and I have to push very hard on the spring to release the lock. If I didn't have to struggle with it every single time I used the darn thing I could ignore that annoying detail more readily.

Good overall blade, a little difficult to open but loosens up with some oiling. My only complaint is that mine was far from sharp out of the box.
