i say go for it. dodos are great little blades and theyre getting harder and harder to find. i would buy it if i had the chance. 100 bucks new is a steal. ive seen them go for more than that used on ebay.
I have unfortunately sold both Dodo's I have managed to pick up in the last couple of years. Not because I didn't love the knife, but because I am anticipating a future Sprint Run. My bad. In the meantime though, the G-10 Poliwog is the first knife that feels like a Dodo in the hand, so that will have to get me through till that inevitable Sprint.
Ok ok, I get it. I finally get it. I see why the Dodo is so loved. While the knife isnt the most comfortable to hold, you get use to it after 30 seconds. The knife cuts like nothing else. It is phenomenal! It is a perfect box opener, and cuts cardboard like a dream. I don't know guys, I am thinking about having a new EDC and retiring my Captain from my EDC work knife. Too bad the thing is so **** ugly.
Actually, I think the Dodo is a very beautifully designed knife, both closed and opened. I've had the pleasure of owning two a while back but they are both gone now. I carried mine primarily as SD knife. It's so light and noticeable, and it was great to carry when I went on runs or worked out. This thread make me sorry I don't have either one anymore...

Perhaps in S90V then...which might even be better!
:spyder:I should probably be sitn this one out, because I've never owned, or even handled one of these great Spyders, but I have looked, and searched for a long time, with no luck Maybe not hard enough...? Even so, I just love it! John
