I highly recommend picking one up. Byrd knives are fun to buy because we are so used to paying $100+ for knives. :p ;)
I have $24.37 in ebay bucks that expire end of the month...for less than $2 I don't think I can pass :D
There you go! Basically a free knife! ;)

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

Cool write up, Connor! Thanks for taking the time to share. :cool: Maybe one day I’ll get over China stamped on the blade and try a Byrd myself but, don’t hold your breath, ay. ;) Ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha. ah, hahaha! :) I really think you'd like them. They're really nice knives and you could always ...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

I actually prefer my SS SE Harpy over the Tasman. The blade is slightly shorter and thicker than the Tasman’s, with a more robust tip. I’ve used it for some rougher ( but not abusive!) cutting chores that, if I had subjected my Tasman to them, would probably have broken the Tasman’s tip off. Jim Ye...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

I have the same feelings regarding the tip of the Tasman for EDC use and it's one of the reasons I much prefer the Lil Matriarch as an EDC hawkbill alternative. https://i.imgur.com/ueQwxCp.jpg ...And WOW for $26 the Byrd looks like a real winner! Thanks for sharing. I highly recommend picking one u...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

If I were to do this write up the title would be "The Tale of 22 Hawkbills". Actually I have had more than that over the years but I think that's close to what I have in my footlocker now as we speak. Even though I have what some might perceive as an unhealthy obsession for the Spyderhawk model I s...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

Thank you everyone! Glad you found it interesting. :) Yes I really tried to like the Tasman more, especially having paid triple the price for it, but I just kept coming back to the byrd. It really is a steal for $26. I still like the Tasman and of course in its role as a water knife it'll definitely...

A Tale of Two Hawkbills

Lately I've been experimenting with hawkbills as EDC folders. My introduction to this blade shape was through the byrd Hawkbill. I was very favorably impressed with the quality of the knife. It was solid, strong, sharp. The 8Cr13MoV steel held its edge surprisingly well and was a breeze to get back ...

Damasteel Military with real stag scales and nickel silver inlays and clip with Spyderco 2020 engraved in the inlay.
I'd go for that. :cool:

Pretty much anything Damasteel will get my support.

Re: Forum Knife 2020 - No Holds Barred!!!

No holds barred eh?

Then give me a Damasteel bladed drop point UKPK with steel liners and contoured polished black Micarta with a small oval silver inlay in the middle of the handle with "Spyderco Forum" engraved along the top with "2020" in larger font beneath.

Re: Sprints

It’s funny to me that so many of you are supporting the idea of serial numbers on your knives. Serial numbers lead to registration. Registration leads to confiscation. :D Honestly, what will a serial number do? Show that someone bought a sprint from a specific dealer and then it ended up on eBay at...

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

It's interesting. I've often thought of trying a straight razor but haven't yet. If Spyderco makes one at a cost within my means I might buy one.

Re: Fellow reptile lovers??

Those are beautiful snakes Julia! I have a pet ball python. They make fantastic pets and mine (named Rolf; standard color morph) has been a great "ambassador" for the snake world, especially whenever we have snake-shy visitors. He is so docile and gentle. I've always liked snakes. They are fascinati...

Re: Sprints

But after seeing the newest reveal, I do feel like its getting a bit out of hand, maybe I'm wrong, I don't understand how things are getting "out of hand." Nobody is forcing anyone to buy anything. I've never purchased a Sprint, but there are two that caught my eye, so I'll probably buy them when t...
