Yes, I went out today and bought one. It's the combo edge, and it's fabulous.
I am astounded with the sheer beauty of this knife. The way the steel of the blade gleams, especially with a light coat of oil on it. It just looks so rich and lustrous. The G-10 handle is perfectly cut, the action tight and the heft is formidable. It makes my hefty large Wegner feel "light duty"...
This Chinook locks up with a sound like a bank vault (heard someone else use this...) and came shaving sharp out of the box. One thing I'm impressed with is that although the blade has both plain edge and serrated portions, it is double bevel sharpened along the full length of the plain edge part. This to me, is uncommon.
Somewhat surprisingly, I find this knife quite comfortable to carry in the pocket or IWB. It is quite simply, a work of art from the Golden, Colorado factory.
Good on you Spyderco!
