Already one of the best value in the popular byrd line, the Cara Cara has been completely reengineered to yield the new, improved Cara Cara 2.


Its many upgrades include a full-flat-ground blade for enhanced edge geometry and cutting performance, a Bi-Directional Textured FRN handle that offers a superior grip and increased control, and phosphor bronze pivot washers for even smoother blade operation. Like its predecessor, it also features spine and choil jimping for precise control during use and a four-position clip that supports all possible carry configurations.


Improved features at very affordable prices make the Cara Cara 2 Lightweight one of the best values on the market.

    Byrd Cara Cara 2 FRN

    Posted by Red Robbo on 16th Aug 2020

    I just received this knife, and am honestly wondering why I have waited so long before trying the Byrd brand. It's a big solid knife with good ergonomics, and a solid lock. It uses a cheaper steel so edge retention won't be brilliant, but it is easy to sharpen. At this price point it's an easy decision and you can then keep your expensive Spyderco in the drawer as you won't really need it.

    Close but no cigar

    Posted by Matt on 11th Apr 2018

    I received this today and I had high hopes having not long received a Byrd Tern which is excellent. Sadly the blade almost fell open with a slight push out of the box as the blade is loose due to poor fit and finish around the blade pin. It's a shame as the blade is perfect yet wobbles from side to side when locked like a spring and the scales move. The torx screw is tight so there is no fixing it. With great reluctance I shall have to return it.

    Wow!

    Posted by Nick on 6th Feb 2016

    Just got mine today, what a fantastic bit of kit! Can really see the spyderco quality shinning through. I have an endura too and as much as I love my spyderco's I'll definately be tempted with more Byrd knives in the future now knowing how close in quality they are. Lock up is great, good bit of tension when closed so shouldn't open in your pocket and feels comfortable in the hand , though a bit less rounded on the edges than the endura. Would definately recommend !

    Perfect modern jack knife

    Posted by Alex Jacob on 18th Oct 2015

    If only it were not for governments' predilection for blaming hardware over behaviour this would be the perfect everyday knife.

    The pocket clip is easy to use and secure while the profile has no uncomfortable lumps so the knife is likely to be there when required. It is light but strong enough split 2" hardwood under a baton when, for example, lighting the local pub fire. It is not, however, too precious to refuse such a task.

    The thumb hole is much easier, I find, to use than a stud and doesn't clutter up the blade. The back lock is secure at all times, holding the blade closed better than a liner lock (the ones I've encountered, anyway) and is not under maximum stress when the knife is closed, like a liner lock.

    The jimping and finger choil together with the handle shape make for a full range of comfortable working hand positions. The whole process of retrieving, opening, closing and replacing the knife can be smoothly done with one hand while the other is, inevitably, full of work/salami/packet/etc.

    As to the blade, it is a useful size and shape; the grind is excellent for general purpose use; the bevel is well executed and the knife comes reasonably sharp. I haven't had the knife long enough to vouch for edge retention although for my specialism of whip making I prefer a finer grind with micro bevel and carbon over any type of stainless steel I've encountered.

    I tried it and this is not a craft knife like the Douk-Douk and Mora carbon steel knives but for everything else it's exceptional, particularly for the money and wafted to one's door the next day on a wave of peerless customer service.

    Would I buy another? Nope, I'd go for a Spyderco equivalent in VG10 cos I'm just as much of a knife tart as you and have already had this one. Well, the wife likes her pens....

    Great value large folder

    Posted by Badger on 25th Apr 2015

    Superb value, lockback folder. Fits better in hand than the Meadowlark 2. Blade is sharp out of the box. One hand opening possible but blade is stiff so makes that difficult, certainly not a flipper.

    FRN Scales are grippy but kind of sharp. Good value at this price though. Finger choil on blade essential in my mind for accurate work and safety, one thing that I wish they'd put on the Spyderco value range.

    Super fast standard delivery, the second fastest company I've ever bought from.

    Save for the Endura 4

    Posted by Billyboy on 10th Oct 2014

    Cant say too much about this knife starting with the FRN handle 'Nothing like spyderco " They feel sharp and cheap the blade steel is ok the blade lock up is solid but deployment is gritty and with oiling and lubing and pivot screw adjustment still feels off ... In my opinion and we all have one , Save for the Endura 4 ...... double the money yes but you get a 90% better knife all round ....
    But if you want to spend 30+ quid on a beater blade i guess it'll do the job but for how long for who knows..... only 3 stars I'm afraid

    working mans endura

    Posted by Stewart on 21st Feb 2014

    It was a toss up between Endura or byrd Cara cara, one third price, lighter knife, under blade finger choil, ease of sharpening in the field, easy strip and reassemble. Not the same blade steel as Endura or quality of finish, but this knife will be used for fish and fowl prep and other jobs on an estate. Great value working medium folder. p.s. I notice I bought the last one, no doubt HH will be getting some more in. Buy one guys.

    A Cheap Endura

    http://youtu.be/1Do4CblW-YY This video is on the G10, but it would apply to the FRN also.

    bigger than expected.

    Posted by kalum on 30th Nov 2013

    This knife is big, strong, light and Spyderco sharp. I will use this knife when in my house as it is not an edc option. For my UK carry knife I use the byrd Tern, the Cara Cara 2 FRN is really it's lock back big brother in looks and performance. Best knife you can get for the money you pay. + HH you post super fast thank you!
