In a very recent thread Sal mentioned that he has been working on a new Dyad 2 design for a few years now. Most certainly this design will feature a PE and SE blade again (I guess), which is great imho.
Still, when I was younger I was more into some bushcraft-stuff and would have wished for some kind of a Dyad, but featuring something like the Spydersaw-blade (https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=51
) - still would be interested nowadays
Maybe the other blade (besides the saw) could even be a comboedge in sabregrind: My reasoning for that:
- A Dyad featuring a saw would be more of a niche product for woodwork / bushcraft anyway
- The benefit of a saw in that scenario is self-explaining (EDIT: Plus: It is an underestimated emergency-tool in the outdoors. Think of sawing branches for making walking sticks, makeshift crutches, splints, shelter-building...)
- Seldom mentioned, but Spyderco-serrations work AMAZINGLY for making shavings / feathersticks
- some amount of sabregrind-PLAIN edge would be good for whittling. In my experience with my Enduras, SG bites deeper into wood than FFG, cause the primary bevel of the SG model goes higher up the blade (convexing it would even be better).
Though I know it´s more than unlikely that we´ll see a Dyad featuring a saw, I thought I´d do a quick poll, if anyone else would be interested in such a model (though my hopes are not very high..
Multiple choices possible!
To be clear: The saw-version would exist BESIDES the SE/PE-one, NOT INSTEAD!
