Several of us handled this grippy G-10 baby at the SOS and other blade shows. The Dodo lists a cutting length of 1 3/4" and an S30V blade length of 2 1/2". Part of the blade length is taken up in the choil. The blade's cutting edge has the reverse S design similar to the Cricket and has a more defined hump that declines after the hole and a more pronounced drop to the tip. The the top edge where it drops to the tip is less rounded and appeared to have a bit of a false edge (swedge). Reminds me kind of like the front of a raptor's beak. The ball lock performed effortlessly at the SOS and is ambidexterous. The spring also ensures the ball still locks if there's any wear. The wire clip is simiar to, but thinner than the clip on the Salsa. The blue G-10 scales are well finished, look cool as ice cubes, and the whole handle is designed to give you an excellent grip for better control and a more powerful cut.
If you love Crickets, Sling Blade, et al, and have larger hands, <b>this is your knife!! </b> If you love Spydies and have any kind of hands this is also your knife. If you have no hands......you got me on that one. Watterya doin' playin' with knives anyway?
