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.

Sypderco knives include a limited manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Details are included with your purchase.
Thinking beyond established knife industry practices has allowed Spyderco to introduce new innovations, including one-hand opening, serrations on a folder, and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. Spyderco remains dedicated to researching and developing improved, better-performing materials with function and reliability, and its unique cutlery line is a result of designing ergonomic, functional tools. The company puts its new products through rigorous testing prior to release, examining edge retention with a CATRA machine, looking for rust development with Q-FOG, checking the force needed to open and close a knife, and analyzing numerous other technical details.

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)
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
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.Read more ›
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.
