I've wondered the same thing about the Dyad knives. Here is what I think (I'm sure everyone cares :rolleyes :) . People either love or hate serrated edges for whatever reason. So when they spend money for a knife with both it's like half the money is going for something they don't care for anyway. Or maybe it's the plain edge that someone either loves or hates. This is kind of a far fetched theory but as far as versatility in knives go both type blades would cover lots of bases. The combo edge is meant to do this but IMHO a combo edge takes away from the features of an edge type more than what it gives in relation to an edge type. The SE portion of a CE takes away good PE space and the PE portion takes away good SE space. I like a blade that is either one or the other and the Dyad knives satisfy this desire. I do have the Byrd Wings and love it but it is too big for an EDC knife. Also, I'm not a fan of SEs for EDC but the Wings is on my tool belt and there is no telling what you are going to come across when wearing a tool belt. Tool belts open up opportunities. Try wearing a tool belt to a club one night. You'll get lots of reactions from the ladies. :D You probably will go home alone though.JD Spydo wrote:On this one I'll have to go with the original big C-44 Dyad model. With 2 full sized blades ( one SE and one PE) you simply have the best of all possible scenerios which Spyderco offers. I'm truly surprised that there hasn't been a huge outcry to bring back the original C-44 Dyad in one of the newer/super steels.
Now just for a small to mid sized EDC I can't find any fault with my old Burgundy, ZDP-189 Caly Jr. which I've carried off and on ever since it's inception in 2005.
I think it would be more fair to say which Spyderco model would not be ideal as a great all around EDC blade. In that case it just boils down to what a guy or gal feels best with. I've also had great luck with the Zowada and the JD Smith models as well.
