Harrier FRN has some contouring.

Look just before the finger guard. We got some contouring on the FRN Harrier instead of the edges all being blocky. I like this direction! I assume we won't see it changed on the others because it's expensive to change the molds. But this is awesome.

Those blocky handles have been my biggest complaint for the byrds. I can't wait til they get rid of them.

Round them off like the Delicas, please.

Sorry. Too late, molds are finished and I just received my first production sample. All in all, it's a very nice piece, especially for the price. But it's still not contoured like the Delica.

I don't mind the blocky handles but D4/E4 style would certainly be better.

As it stands I always take some sandpaper/files to all my Byrds when they come in to round out and smooth the handles. Makes a $20-30 knife feel like a $60 knife basically for free. The contouring is a nice touch on the Harrier.

I honestly prefer the handle design on the Byrds to their Spyderco counterparts. The CC2 is basically an Endura 5 as far as ergonomics go and the Harrier basically the Endela 2.

The knives look good and pretty handy.

It's not quite Delica contoured, but it's close!
