Yeah, this is one spec that kind of drew me in and over the edge to giving one a try.TheOutdoorNerd wrote:That Crow looks awesome. I didn't realize there were Chinese made knives using CTS BD1, which so far I like with my Golden-made Manix 2 LW.
What he said is all valid re. the Raven 2! Mine hasn't left my pocket since last August, and i do have some pretty serious blades to choose fromSpeedHoles wrote:I just recieved a Crow 2 about a week ago.
Very happy with this knife. It is my first Byrd knife.
I had purchased it impulsively to fulfill a "free shipping" minimum purchase, and as an experiment to see how the Byrd line compared with all of my Spyderco (and other) knives.
So far I am rather impressed with its quality. Design is no less than amazing, which is not surprising with it being an in-house design and bearing Sal's mark.
Build construction is very stout and should hold up to some heavier use that many people put the value line folders through. The blade is on the thick side, but with ffg it is still a prime slicer, but don't purchase this knife with intentions to compare it to a Chapparal.
Quality of manufacturing is where I am most amazed. Atleast for my example of the knife, everything is tight and right. Centered and even grind. Seems to be even a bit more precise than many of the Tenacious knives, and an Ambitious and Persistence that I have owned.
(Are the Byrds built in a different facility/factory than the Tenacious Value line, or is it the same place??).
The Byrd eye hole is also very ergonomic as well, and easily flickable (big plus in my book).
With this example of the Crow 2 far exceeding my initial expectations, I now plan on purchasing the larger Raven 2 in the coming months.
