Already one of the best values in our popular byrd line, the Cara Cara 2 Lightweight has been completely reengineered to yield the new, improved Cara Cara 2.
Its many upgrades include a full-flat-ground blade for enhanced edge geometry and cutting performance, a Bi-Directional Textured-? FRN handle that offers a superior grip and increased control, and phosphor bronze pivot washers for even smoother blade operation. Like its predecessor, it also features spine and choil jimping for precise control during use and a four-position clip that supports all possible carry configurations.
Improved features at very affordable prices make the Cara Cara 2 Lightweight one of the best values on the market.

Upgrade alert! byrd knives are the subject of a number of engineering refinements for 2010 with improved ergonomics, four-way clips and full-flat ground blades. Like Spyderco knives, byrd knives are subject to our penchant for C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement. As manufacturing processes and material availability improves, so do the byrds.
The newest evolution of the Cara Cara is the Cara Cara2 with a G-10 handle. It has a full-flat ground high performance 8Cr13MoV blade. Shaped like a "comet" the hole in the blade symbolizes quality and careful manufacturing tolerances. On the blade's spine is a group of crosshatching called jimping. Jimping enhances the thumb's grip on top of the blade making cutting slip-resistant. Available for the first time with a four-way clip that carries tip-up/tip down or left/right-handed, it attaches inside a pant's pocket where it rides deep and confidently. A finger choil enhances the ergonomic G-10 handle adding comfort and control. Mid-positioned back lock has a David Boye cut away dent, a safety feature allowing the handle to be tightly gripped without unintentionally releasing the lock.
