Product Description

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.

About Spyderco
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.

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.

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.

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

Let me just say that this knife is very nice. When I got mine it was a little tight so I adjusted the pivot point screw to loosen it up. Opens almost as smooth as a spyderco and lockup is tight. However I did try to take the whole thing apart to clean it and all of the smaller torx screws stripped... I don't know if its soft metal and they were to tight or what but that made me a little mad.(and yes I was using the right size bit). Besides that its a great little knife.

Sharp out of the box & works perfectly without adjustments. I read a lot on this knife before buying because I had never used one like it: You need only read this review. The jimping is perfectly done (jimping is the notches for grip on a knife, here they are on the top-rear of the blade) -place your thumb there for extra leverage... really good ergonomics, great grip. Its always in my pocket.
