Product Description

Product Description

The Robin2 Lightweight is refreshed with these new features.  Its mid-size makes the Robin2 an easy knife to carry everyday in an office our outdoor environment.  Its full-flat ground blade is high-carbon 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a comet-shaped hole for one hand opening/closing.  Jimping (crosshatching) dots the spine, making a textured section where the thumb rests, creating tactile resistance that restrains the folder from sliding and slipping when cutting.  The FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle is molded with Bi-Directional Texturing® with a fish-scales pattern.  The scales hold the knife steady while cutting even in hands that are wet, slick or gloved. The welcome addition of a four-way clip offers the option of carrying the folder tip-up/tip-down or left-right-handed and a lanyard hole located at the back of the handle accommodates a secondary-retentive thong or cord.  Custom knifemaker David Boye’s dent feature is a half-moon-shaped snip of steel removed from the lock’s release lever as an added safety feature to the back-lock.

Amazon.com

The Robin2 folding knife, from the affordably-priced byrd line of knives produced by innovative cutlery company Spyderco, is a solid, versatile, mid-sized knife. A full flat-ground blade is made of high-carbon 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, with a convenient comet-shaped hole for fast and easy one-handed opening.

Steady grip is essential when using a knife, which is why Spyderco placed cross-hatched jimping along the spine, creating nonslip grip where your thumb rests, for tactile resistance that ensures safe, accurate cutting. A fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) handle is molded with a proprietary Bi-Directional Texturing fish scale pattern for improved friction in your palm during use, even when your hands are wet or you're wearing gloves. A four-way steel clip and lanyard hole offer a variety of carrying configurations, while the back lock has a David Boye cut-away dent, a safety feature allowing tight gripping without accidentally releasing the lock.

Although it also comes with many weaknesses, I suggest the all metal version for better performance and feel.

Cons:
Design of the handle force the hand to go to the choil/choke while the blade angle supposed to be more acute downward (see Spyderco Balance) for better performance by making sure the finger is secured and out of the way of the blade when cutting inward direction.
Awkward for bigger hands.
Blade extension "Gripping" method /Standard-non Choking gripping only can be acquired by the help of additional laynard knots otherwise low retention grip is what you get (fall easily by light force like a tap/slap).
Short length blade but bulky in the pocket is a very interesting contradiction.
Craftmanship was so so
My case was also having the Pivot/washer (sometimes it very loose open-close sometimes very Tight) and lock Failure (Some instances the lock just barely lock the blade)

Pro:
Affordability arnd $ 18
Easy One hand Opening compared to its size
Feels very good in reverse grip
Somewhat Spyderco Sturdiness and Sharpness, Love the 2 metal liners on the handle.
Handle Texture is great

Excellent. About the size of the Dragonfly and less than half the price, Great knife for the money. Can be honed to a razor edge (it was out of the box). It might not hold it as long as VG-10 but it's easier to sharpen.Spyderco byrd Robin2 Black FRN PlainEdge Knife

This knife is a neat little edc folder to carry around. The FRN grip is better than the G 10 on the Tenacious line and the jimped finger choil really lets you get a good choke on the blade when you are cutting. It came sharp out of the box and had no blade play, however after opening it and closing it there was some blade play. I suppose you cannot expect full spyderco quality at this price point. You need a torx driver size 5, I believe, to tighten the pivot screw. That will probably solve the problem. The knife is very small and very light, you will forget you even have it. It comes positioned in Right hand tip up carry. Although the knife isn't pictured here just look it up on the spyderco catalog online. You cannot beat this small yet comfortable folder at this price point, I suggest you buy it and try it out. It's only $17, so get it while it lasts.

This is the smallest and lightest knife I've carried so far. I've got an OD2 on the way to compare it too, but for every day tasks, this little knife got the job done. The mirror polish finish got dirty pretty quick, so keep it clean, but other than that it was good. Also, you may want to loosen the retention screw as my knife was really stiff to deploy out of box.

Recently I heard about Spyderco’s byrd line so I’ve picked a few up to give them a try. I’m writing this review with the intention of serving as a primer for people who are curious about the byrd knife line, and to provide some side by side pictures.

I’ve been a very happy owner of a Sypderco Delica 4 FRN for a couple of years. It’s been my EDC for most of that time, and it’s the folding knife I recommend to people that want an affordable, high quality knife to carry around.

I’m not a knife expert, but I’m learning. Most of my knowledge comes from owning Benchmade, Kershaw, Ontario, Cold Steel, and Spyderco knives, and figuring out what I like. I can’t offer a good assessment on steel or locking mechanisms.
The bottom line is this: The byrd line is a terrific value and the Spyderco quality is still there.

I’ve put up some side by side pictures that help give a sense of the size and look of these terrific knives.

General thoughts about the byrd line:

I really like FRN, and think it’s wonderful on the Spyderco Delica 4. On the Robin 2 and Cara Cara 2, it’s a bit simpler and not as refined. The textured pattern on the Delica 4 is more artful and sophisticated, and Spyderco calls it Bi-Directional Texturing. It provides a better grip when you need it, but is smooth if you feel it moving away from the blade. The byrd line is more general. It’s still grippy and feels fine, but it isn’t quite as good. It has little bumps as textures, but the Bi-Directional Texturing isn’t there, and it actually is noticeable.

Byrds have a similar opening hole to the Spyderco, but it’s a comet shape. There’s no noticeable difference, and I like the look. It doesn’t feel any different than opening a traditional Spyderco.

Updating my review:

I spent some time working with this, and trying different hand positions, and I realized that, because of its small size, hand position has to be adjusted, and I can now work with this comfortably even including one-handed opening, so I think that I was overly harsh on my initial review. Aside from that, as mentioned earlier, the lockback is very solid, and I'm starting to like this Spyderco better, to the point that I've recently purchased a new Spyderco Native (which fits better, for me). So, I'm bumping up my review rating.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This was my first Spyderco, and I'm not expert in knives, but I've been very disappointed with this knife. I like to be able to open one-handed, but the shape of the handle and the position of the hole in the blade just seem wrong. The hole is past the middle of the handle, which makes it difficult to get any leverage when trying to open.

I was pleased with the locking mechanism. At least on the one that I got, that seems to work well.
