Byrd of Prey

Postby tstetz » Fri Nov 25, 2016 10:53 am

Last one of my rejected design guys, I promise :)

So I turned in the two designs for consideration in the regular Spyderco line, the SpyderMonkey and SeaMonkey, and one for the Byrd line, the Byrd of Prey. This one was a little more whimsical with a sweeping recurve blade and more flowing lines than my other two designs. Basically designed as an affordable tactical folder with a little bit of zing to it. Hopefully still usable and practical but with a little flair. Probably too much flair I guess :D

Anyway, here it is too for your amusement:

I like the blade shape and the clever name. Good luck. May be too good for a Byrd.

It was rejected a few years back akready. I just stumbled on the renderings again recently and figured I'd share them since I had them. Kind of a what might have been thread :-)
