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.

Great knife
Jeffrey G.
Just received my Byrd Raven 2 today and have to say the knife is very impressive out of the box. I had heard there were issues with the fit and finish but the knife I received appears to be every bit as good as my other Spyderco knives. The edge is hair popping sharp and I'm looking forward to using the CTS BD1 blade. This is my first Byrd knife but definitely not the last. And as always Blade HQ makes the online purchase a breeze.
Great work knife

I carry this knife in uniform(Army) Good steel for the money. Mine is pretty smooth, but I am thinking about ordering phosphor bronze washers to upgrade this knife.
Great knife!

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
Jason G.
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.
