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.
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.
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.
