Byrd Morph to Spyderco?

Postby Knifewing » Tue Feb 07, 2017 11:15 pm

I just bought a Byrd Finch 2, my first Byrd knife in years. As many have said, the Finch 2 is a great little knife for the money. I really like the design although I'd prefer better blade steel and I'd also like it to be a bit bigger. So what I'm wondering is if it's possible for Spyderco to pick up and improve upon this Byrd design for the Spyderco line. I love the Finch 2's slim handle (spine to edge), long thin blade profile and the choil. With the exception of knives such as the Air and the original Kiwi and Baby Horn there are very few Spyderco designs with that thin, non-leaf profile and a blade of around 2.5" long. If Spyderco were to take the Finch 2 design, then proportionately increase the blade and handle by about half (to roughly Air size), retain the Finch's slim blade profile spine to edge and the choil, use some incredible SS blade steel (such as Elmax or M390), and give it unique handle scales (like, say, the Leafstorm's), I think it could become Spyderco's ultimate gentleman's pocket knife.

Isn't the Finch basically a Ladybug with a choil?

The Finch 2 is about the same size as a Ladybug or a Jester (my all-time favorite small Spyderco). The choil makes it different and is what attracted me to it. The Byrd Starling 2 looks to be almost identical to a Ladybug.
