The Spyderco Byrd Crossbill Folding Knife features a hawkbill shaped blade that is curved for better control on pulling cuts. The blade shape holds rope, line, webbing and netting against the sharpened edge, which keeps it from tip slipping. The blade is manufactured with 8Cr13Mov stainless steel, which contains molybdenum and vanadium, enhancing the blade's ability to hold a sharp cutting surface and wear less over time and use.
The comet-looking blade hole is a trademark of the byrd line and is synonymous with the stringent quality requirements, high performance materials and manufacturing, which go into every byrd knife. The handle has ergonomic contours making long term and strenuous cutting more comfortable. A David Boye Dent is ground away from the lock release to inhibit the chance of gripping the knife tightly enough to unintentionally release the lock during use.
