Replies: 24
Views: 3211

I went through USAF survival school (in 1979)with only a Swiss army and a Buck knife. I find carrying a sharpened prybar is a bit overated. The weight penalty is a bit much when considering all the other non optional mission equipment we carried. Back at my unit, I was very pleased with the Cold Ste...

Chad, Thats it! Perfect evolution of the Dodo. One concern I have had about the hawk blades is overlong blade length. For instance the Civilians long blade seems it could snag and pop out of a less than perfect grip. A short blade and normal length grip delivers more power, leverage and control IMHO...

It appears the Dodo is a great platform for mods. Looks like it is to be the "modular" knife Sal wanted in the Poliwog.
I kept the hook on mine for stripping wire and opening bubble packs.

I have about 25 Spydies. They are all users, the more dinged and sratched they are, the more attached I become to them.

Makes me wonder how a knife such as this is designed. For instance, the part that holds the ball and springs is a very odd shape. I would never guess it were part of the Dodo if it was displayed alone. Do computers do this or does Eric and Sal sit around hand filing prototypes until the fit and shap...

Native is my #1 pick. I would like to see what the colors look like, I voted for green, but silver-grey, black or dark blue are OK. Whats coyote brown?
I just bought yet another Native, a black blade version, for no real reason at all other than I love the Native.
