  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by D. from Southeast US on Sunday, May 25, 2014
    This purchase was an addition to two other higher end Spyderco knives owned (one from Seki City and the other from Boulder) and comes from China made under the supervision of Spyderco. The full stainless liners and above average quality blade steel and nice blade heft and design all contribute to the structural integrity of this Byrd Crow. However, the scale fit to the liners and finish of the scales is sub par and below expectations. Moreover, the function of the liner lock is problematic. I ordered two of these and both do not fully lock unless you manipulate significantly beyond normal opening procedure; if special care and effort is not taken to manually move the lock far enough into the center then the blade is NOT locked and will fold under the very slightest pressure ( dangerous ). That said, I still like these Crows as another good value from STP. So, if not returned to STP then these will either be sent to Spyderco for warranty "adjustment" or disassembled (by me) to remove a bit of blade steel at the lock contact area so that the lock can come fully to center without manipulation at each time of opening. It is somewhat tempting to do the final scale fit and finish as it should have been done by the maker; as to what is acceptable cosmetically for an EDC....that would be a matter of personal pride.These two Crows are the only Byrds I've ever seen and handled. They are not nearly on par overall with a Spyderco but do have "good bones" and good potential if corrections and improvements are performed. Consideration was given to rate them at three or even four stars based on value but it would be wrong to mislead given the liner lock issue and less than desirable finishing. To return or take these Byrds under my wing (ouch!) ?

    Ordered one it would not lock, exchanged it, and got another one that would not. Maybe ok if you want a slip joint knife.

    The byrd crow is not so big that you will scare your coworkers, but not so small that it isn't useful. Spyderco designs are second to none and this knife has great ergonomics. The 8Cr13 steel is very decent and holds an edge nicely and sharpens easily. At the stp price, its hard to go wrong with this knife.

    Really nicely made knife. Tight/solid blade lockup and overall a very well designed/built import knife.

    Paid $16. Decent blade steel takes a nice edge and holds it nicely with average use. G-10 scales have a great feel and reduce the weight. Its light weight with smoth action. Good budget edc. Finish work leaves a little to be desired. Byrd is made by Spyderco. Too bad its made in China!

    One of the better imported knives in my collection. Fit and finish is good, jimping is excellent, G-10 scales. It's worth more than I paid.
