I’d really love to see some existing models in the Byrd or Spyderco value series be offered in 9Cr18Mov. I really like the steel in my usage, and I’d think it’s readily available in China.

Does that complexity decrease the simplicity? Not at all.

I think that was done on one model as sort of a test run. The Catbyrd, maybe? I don't know what ever came of that though.

I'd prefer to see more BD1, BDZ1, and especially BDN1 on budget knives.

I want a Byrd (or Spyderco Value Line) RIL (framelock). CRKT has done quite well with the Voxnaes designed Pilar family. The CRKT Burnley Squid, though I personally don't care for it, is still a top 20 seller in pocket knives on Amazon. The Pilar is a very Spyderco-esque design to my eye and hand. I think a Byrd RIL could sell well, if it's a good design that's well executed.

What about a Byrd version of the Spyderco Catcherman? Maybe give it a cool name like the Kingfisher? I think fishermen would love a cost effective option to go fishing with other then Rapala

I'd like to see more CTS-BD1, and more knives coming from the factory that makes the Crow 2/Raven 2, as the work I've seen from this factory has been excellent.

Specifically, I'd like a third knife in the Crow/Raven line: something about the size of the Military or a little smaller.
A big, budget liner lock with choil and CTS-BD1 would really stand out, as there is nothing quite like that in either the Byrd or Spyderco lineups.

A fixed blade in BD1 would be cool too.

My vote would be for a wharncliffe Meadowlark 2.

With khaki FRN just like the Kahr Arms Delica...my dream Byrd.
Decided to photoshop this one up...

Wow this is nice. Byrd knives have their unique place as the potential gateway Spyderco knife. I've never wanted to spend the money on a Spyderco wharncliffe, not knowing if I'd like it, because I definitely wasn't a fan of the look of it. However, for $20-25, I'd love to try it as see what all the hoopla is about this blade shape. But then I might be hooked, and end up buying $100 hap40 wharncliffe models etc lol. Maybe Spyderco better not come out with this after all.

I would buy this immediately!
Loads of spydies, and a few others as well

Personally, I'd like to see a waved Meadowlark. Currently, I believe that the Endura-sized Cara Cara is the only waved Byrd knife.

In my opinion, the Delica size range is ideal for EDC, especially in jurisdictions where blade length is an issue. A waved Meadowlark would cover that niche.

A waved Robin might be a good choice for those in really restrictive jurisdictions, such as Chicago.

I guess we're waiting to see reaction on the CaraCara with the Emerson opener before branching out.

I would love to see an updated ByrdRench...or even a re-release of the original.

I would actually also like the screws and clips to be made the same as spydercos. I don't think this would be a bad thing for the brand and could help for folks who use aftermarket clips etc. I recently picked up another byrd and was disappointed that I could NOT use some of the aftermarket Spyderco clips I have.

Could we get the Meadowlark with Wharncliffe and Emerson wave? :cool:

I'd like to see a re-release of the Wings Slipit, maybe with a different color G-10 or something to distinguish it from the first run.

Hi Fanpeiwen,

Welcome to our forum.

Maybe he's referring to knife laws in Hong Kong?
