The Spyderco Byrd Tern is a solid affordable pocket knife with a slipit-lock. This means that the knife isn't really locked. Combined with the limited blade length the Spyderco Tern can legally be carried in many places in Europe. The lack of a lock is compensated by the clear click when the knife opens. Halfway through closing the knife you once again hear a clear click. The index finger falls into the curve of the blade and handle. If the blade accidentally closes it is stopped by your finger which decreases the chances of accidents.
The blade is made from 8Cr13MoV-steel. A good type of steel for daily use that retains its sharpness well. The light-weight G10 handle feels comfortable in hand. With the deep-carry pocket clip you can easily and discretely carry the knife in your pocket.
