Personally I've always liked the ball bearing lock on the Dodo but I would not be opposed to using a different locking system in a bigger version or even the original version for that matter.
Well John you've obviously discovered the awesome EDC properties of the Dodo as I did all the way back in early 2004. When I bought my first one in late 2003 I got the blue PE version which I still own and it's still in my "user rotation". I bought it strictly as a curious, odd-ball collectible and hoping that this extremely unique design would some day be a collectible that would accrue value as time went by.JMM wrote: ↑Sun Apr 11, 2021 3:54 am[+1]
Absolutely agree, it's such a deceivingly odd yet awesome design to most folks, it was for me until I had the chance to hold / fiddle with one for a few minutes.... that night I got online and started reading more about them and really looking closely at the design. I started casually window shopping and after a few days a "Smurf Blue" G10 SE model popped up and I snagged it... it's one of my EDC SE regulars that I always enjoy using -- I would be all about an XL version without hesitation, sign me up for 2 SE and 1 PE immediately.
I agree with you Abyss. I've handled and used my Dodo models so much over the years that the Ball Bearing Lock has just become second nature to me. I actually enjoy playing with my original blue PE Dodo and I've gotten pretty quick and deploying it.
+1. I'd like a SE version, especially, xl or standard. And I wouldn't hate a conversion to a cbbl rather than the bbl.
Same. I have a lil matriarch, matriarch 2, and civilian. I want more reverse s designs in some more premium steels. The cricket is a bit small for my taste, but I may pick one up for the sake of completeness. The dodo is all old production so I probably won't pay what the secondary market wants for them
