As a complete Dodo FREAK, maybe I can offer another angle. I whittle. The Spyderco "Reverse S" blade design lends itself extremely well to my hobby. I have a Meerkat (yep, remember those?) that I have carried since they first hit the market and use non-stop. I am, however, cursed when it comes to Dodos. I NEVER lose knives except Dodos. I have lost a black one, four blue ones, two orange ones, and I'm in the market for a CF to lose.
Hope the explanation of what I actually accomplish with the Dodo helps justify it a little to some who appear to be having a hard time doing so. I would be appreciative of such an explanation for the 20 or Spydies I feel that way about. But that's a topic for another day.
Be careful out there and just have fun with it.
