The jigged bone version of the A. Wright Lambfoot folding pocket knife features a mirror polished, C70 carbon steel blade and is available with blue, red or lime green jigged bone handle scales. 7 cm, (2.75 inches) long, 2.5 mm thick, mirror polish, C70 carbon steel, lamb foot blade. Rounded, nickel silver bolsters, brass handle liners, polished blue jigged bone handle scales.

Hand made in Sheffield England, A. Wright pocket knives have C70 carbon steel blades. Carbon steel pocket knives generally hold a better edge than stainless steel knives, but need to be cleaned and oiled after use to prevent corrosion. Surface corrosion can be removed with fine emery cloth.

The Lambfoot style of blade has a straight cutting edge with the blade back sloping down at almost 90 degrees to form a rounded or squared off point. Lamb foot blades make ideal work knives with the straight cutting edge allowing for accurate slicing. The blade shape has the added safety of a rounded point and lambfoot blades also make good wood carving knives.

2014 New Improved Byrd Tern Folding Knife

2014 New Improved Byrd Tern BY23GP Folding Pocket Knife

The new, improved version of the Byrd Tern BY23G folding pocket knife is manufactured by a different supplier than the earlier production runs according to Spyderco which markets the Byrd brand of knives. The Byrd Tern is a medium size, UK legal carry pocket knife, with a 2.8 inch long blade and lightweight G10 handle.

Compared to the initial version of the knife, the latest 2014 incarnation has a much higher standard of finish. This is evident in the seamless fit between the open blade tang and the back spring, the pin sharp bevel lines on the blade and the near mirror polish of the flat grind blade.

The main improvement in the latest Byrd Tern folding knife is the use of a much stronger back spring. The knife now requires considerable force to close the blade, making it much safer to use in everyday cutting situations. The halfway closing safety stop can also be relied upon when closing the blade with one hand, to prevent finger entrapment.

A. Wright Carbon Steel Pocket Knife – Cutting Test

A. Wright pocket knives are hand made in Sheffield, England with a high standard of quality control at each step of the process. The blades of A. wright pocket knives are made of extremely hard steel, as the cutting test demonstrates. With a price point below £25 including VAT and UK delivery, the A. Wright carbon steel folding pocket knives represent excellent value for money.

From new, the knife is sharp enough to make a fairly clean cut through a sheet of 80 GSM white paper. Cutting an aluminium soft drink can in half is easy and does not make the knife blunt. Immediately after cutting through an aluminium drinks can, and without re-sharpening the blade, it is still possible to make a fairly clean cut through a sheet of 80 GSM paper.

The only drawback with a hard blade steel such as this, is the slight difficulty when it comes to re-sharpening the blade. In this case, sharpening the blade is made even harder by the curved shape of the edge. Blades with a straight cutting edge such as the Lambfoot design are much easier to sharpen.

When choosing a work knife, one of the main considerations is the ability to maintain a sharp cutting edge after lengthy use.
