Description

Description

An updated Raven 2 has made its way here and the results of the second generation of this pocket-size EDC is nothing short of stellar. Updates to the original model include a full-flat ground, premium Carpenter CTS-BD1 steel blade with a 0.150" thick for added strength. The handle maintains the skeletonized stainless steel liners and LinerLock tab with fine textured black G-10 putting your hand in control of the blade. An open-build on the handle makes it easy to keep your knife clean and the reversible tip-up carry clip makes it easy to keep your byrd Crow in tow all the time.

This is my third Byrd knife. The first was a Cara with the FRN scales that IMO are too flimsy, so I gave it to a friend. The second was a Crossbill which like the Raven 2 is an incredible knife for the money. Listen folks, for less than $50 bucks you can not go wrong with this knife. The fit and finish is excellent and the CTI-BD1 blade is razor sharp out of the box. Forget eBay and Amazon and go with a reputable dealer to be sure you're getting the real deal. Blade HQ, as always offers outstanding customer service and value.
A tank of a knife, but rough G-10 and blade hitting liner now

It just feels beefy. With a 0.15" blade thickness, you feel like it can handle anything. However, that blade thickness does get in the way of some cutting and makes the knife quite heavy. Some trade-offs there.

I still love mine though. I've had it for about 7 months and have gotten a lot of use out of it. I've only made one adjustment, which is that I've sanded down the area where the clip touches the G-10 just to keep it from destroying my pants because the clip is a bit tight and the G-10 is a bit rough.

One major problem though, after 7 months of carry and use, the blade has become so off-center that it is hitting the liner on one side. The knife does have an adjustable pivot, but the other side just seems to spin freely so I can't actually tighten it (or unscrew it for that matter). It's served its time well, and I loved it for the past 7 months, but there really isn't much I can do now but retire it.
