Flatbyrd 2?

Postby Joshcrutchley1 » Mon Apr 26, 2021 8:53 am

I just found out about the Flatbyrd but much to my dismay they're nowhere to be found. It's a cool design that takes the thinness of the Spydercard and delivers it in a more traditional knife. Will we ever see a Flatbyrd 2 or maybe a run of the original in Bd1n or Aeb-l? I know there's all kinds of threads asking for Spydercos but don't see them for the Byrd so heres mine. Besides the original getting some new steel I would also like to see something similar to the Meerkat, just given the same treatment as the Flatbyrd including the integral/frame lock.

Wow, cool! I haven't seen that one before. The unlocking hole is quite interesting too.

Very interesting! I'd get one of these in a heartbeat. Wish I had known about these when they were in production.

If it had a clip. I'd own more than one.

It looks to have enough holes to hold a clip.

The original design was the credit card knife by Eduard Bradichanski. The design was the same size as a credit card and would fit into a wallet. I deigned the Flatbird as a byrd version of the original.

Hi Turtlepockets,

Welcome to our forum.

We never put a clip on the original because it was created to fit into a wallet.

It's a beautiful knife hopefully it comes around again. I like it the way it is without a clip.
