Dodo on KC
Looks like they finally took off the preorder option. I've been checking it daily, haha. I sent them an email to clarify on the situation and I'll post an update if they reply with any relevant info.
I have no idea why the release of the dodo is going as such. Is this par for the course for sprint runs? Usually, it seems spyderco will just announce when they release a new product. I think this "trickle" thing is causing people a bit of anxiety! Lol!

I have no notice about the order being in stock, or about the order being canceled. I am done with those people if this turns out to be their typical BS that I have read about from other forum members. Someone help me to maintain my sanity!
Ok ok, took a long breath and decided to call. I placed my order with them 12/20/11. The customer service rep informed me that he just pulled the dodo from the site 30 minutes ago and it was to ensure he didn't run out of blades before he completed his orders. He said the blades were arriving to them in batches of "small double digit" quantities and that my order should be filled and shipped soon. He said that if he gets a surplus of the Dodos, he will repost the link to buy on the site.
I don't know how this affects some of you whom may have placed your pre-order in 2012. Just FYI!
This makes sense. Now I find myself using this as an excuse why not to buy another orange.SolidState wrote:That CF one is why I only got one orange one.
lol, you confused me with all the A B and C's you sound like my little nephew, im glad i got it i keep it now i keep it nib till i get another if i get another i might sell this one but if i dont i keep this one that way i have 1jabba359 wrote:I picked up an orange one: A) to see if I liked it before spending the extra $$$ to get a CF version, and B) just in case I'm unable to find a CF one before they sell out. "A" has been answered (I like it and it fits my hand well), so I'm keeping my orange Dodo NIB so I can sell it if I'm able to snag a CF one instead. If I fail to get a CF Dodo, then I'll always have the orange one to pull out and put to use.
For ebay prices, you could look at http://www.bentoboxshop.com. I saw they had them listed on their page for $199. I can't vouch for them yet since I'm still waiting for my CPM-M4'd Manix.BDNX wrote:I'm considering just goin' for the ebay prices....I can't really handle all this Out of Stock everywhere I look much like the Yo2...and I really would like to get my hands on one of these Dodos since I missed out on it the first round.
