This year, I managed to also shoot some video of the various production samples. I figured this might give an even better impression of the new Spyderco knives. First up, the excellent Police 4 Lightweight Production Sample!

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Byrd Harrier

March 27, 2019

The Byrd Harrier in G10 is another great way to catch the Spyderco Bug on a budget. Knife snobs might scoff at its ‘made in China’ label and its ‘lesser blade steel’. However, back in the mid- to late 1990s, this would have probably been considered a premium factory knife.

The quality is impressive. And I can tell from handling that the Byrd Harrier will make a great working knife. One you wouldn’t mind scuffing up. I’m the first to admit that I do think about what I’m doing with my more expensive Spyderco knives. So keeping a budget option around makes sense. Who knows, perhaps the Byrd knives see more actual ‘hard use’ cutting than more expensive knives?

This is the last knife I can show you from this year’s meet, and I’m done for today. However, my report on the Spyderco Amsterdam Meet isn’t finished yet…

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – BaliYo

March 27, 2019

I was happy to see the BaliYo getting an upgrade at this year’s Amsterdam Meet. If you like knives, you’ll probably like balisongs as well, or at least played with one. A BaliYo takes the game of the balisong knife and it puts it in a pen. My co-workers might not always appreciate the clickety-clack of me flipping a pen during meetings, but a BaliYo never bores me.

The most noticeable new feature of the new BaliYo are the wider arms with slots, to improve the grip during tricks. However, the wire clips have also been tuned, they are now less likely to catch on threads in your pocket and they won’t move as much as the old ones. The arms appeared thicker as well, offering even more protection against breaking. It looks like the new BaliYo will be part of the Lightweight series. This one’s absolutely on my wish list!







Specifications
Overall Length: 20  cm / 7.87 inches
Pen Length: 10,6  cm / 4.17 inches
Closed Length: 10,8 cm / 4.25 inches
Weight: 34 grams / 1.2 ounces
