I have owned many Spyderco knives, but only 2 Byrd knives including this Byrd Tern I picked up today. What intrigued me about this design was the common features it shares with many Spyderco knives I love:
I love the UKPK but it is too big for my needs. I also prefer G10 to FRN. I decided to try out the Byrd Tern and I am so glad that I did. I instantly fell in love when I had the knife in my hand. The ergos are great for me and the walk and talk is snappy. I washed the factory oil off of the blade, sharpened it up more on the Sharpmaker with the fine stones, and put a short wire clip on it from a Dragonfly. The factory Tern clip is too long for my liking. Overall, I highly recommend this knife!
