The Cara Cara is Byrd line's newest offering, presenting a cost effective alternative to Spyderco's main CLIPIT-line of high-performance knives that stand independently on their own design, performance merits and high-level of manufacturing.
Categorized as a mid-sized all steel folder, the BY03 brings together high-performance features with solid dollar value.
The hollow-ground 8Cr13MoV blade comes plain edged (toothless) or in a combination plain edge/serrated edge.
Shaped like a "comet" the hole in the blade symbolizes both quality and tight tolerances adhered to in manufacturing.
Capping the blade's spine is a series of cross hatching, which grip the thumb for slip-free cutting.
Available in a right-hand configuration, the clip on the handle positions the knife tip-up or tip-down, attaching inside a pants pocket.
When gripped, the ergonomic stainless steel handle becomes a precision cutting extension of the hand.
Cut from the lock's release is a David Boye Dent, a safety feature that allows tightly gripping the handle without accidentally releasing the lock.
The second generation has been ergonomically improved and now features a handy four-way pocket clip.

Very nicely finished, solidy made and put together, very sharp, though don't yet know how it will last in practice. Not sure how this isn't actually as good as the real Spyderco - it really does seem excellent value.
