    People “should immediately stop using the recalled knives and return them to a Harbor Freight Tools store,” the U.S. Consumer Producer Safety Commission detailed in a news release. Consumers who do so will receive a $5 gift card as a full refund.

    I don’t carry my Benchmade very often. My Expat Medellin is always with me. A good tool is a safe (as can be) tool. I have not bought a cheap knife but once. The Byrd was it. That just sits in a drawer to remind me that I wasted money on something that could hurt me.

    @Solo, I'm a big proponent of not buying crap made in China, but I wouldn't classify a Byrd brand knife the same as a folder sold at Harbor Freight. They are very well designed and Spyderco stays on top of QC at all of their factories, regardless of where they are located.
