I love the looks of that handle, bet it feels great. That blade though... don't think I could pull the trigger and actually use it.
Currently have 17 :spyder: 's in 13 different steels.

Blasphemer!

While not for everyone, it is a surprisingly useful blade shape.

I hope this thing flys, so we might be able to see a 2nd iteration.
I also hope it crawls, so I can buy 2...

Is there anyone who's able to purchase one of the Dodo's and ship it to the Netherlands seeing how BladeHQ don't tend to ship internationally for a single knife?
Yes, I suppose I can.
I once sold a ported ( really powerfull ) chainsaw to a guy in New Zealand. Dont see why I couldn't send a knife to the Netherlands.
That would be awesome of you! :D
And if shipping a chainsaw isn't a big deal, I suppose I knife would be fine :p
I don't know if the price/date is officially announced yet, but I'll keep an eye out for it.
Thanks! :)
Just lemme know. I aim to get at least 1 Dodo myself.
Did you get a chance to buy one? :D

My bad... Saw the page pop up in my daily search and figured they'd be for sale; still says "Coming soon". Sorry for the false hope! :o

So it's finally about to be released! And in my favorite steel, or 2nd favorite after K390. The other 3 models (6 counting PE and SE) were all S30V, so this is really a premium release. I like that they weigh only 2.6 oz and are very discrete carry, yet have a heavy duty lock and blade. I'm glad the PE version is coming out first -- it'll be a very useful blade for me. I often need a short but sturdy blade, but I don't think I'd use the SE version as often.

Now we need to start campaigning for a new C98 Poliwog :cool:
:spyder: :cool:
Upcoming on my spydie-radar: M4 Dodo, 20CV M2, LW Lil' Native, then LW P3 or Sage 5? brown DLC M390 M2? ;) :spyder:

How do you sharpen that, even on a sharpmaker?
I'd be so nervous about blunting the tip!
The first time I opened a dodo, I got cut... Ordered one for a friend, flicked it open, and the tip got me...

Love the knife just not crazy about this steel or jade G10. I wished the Dodo grew on me earlier then I would have picked up the CF/S30V.

Looks absolutely amazing. Like doeswhatever says, a perfect package opener. Especially clam packs. But it also looks like I would struggle to sharpen it, so I’m going to pass. Can’t wait to see what jade/m4 is next though!
Don't let sharpening stop you I have a Spyderco Plain Edge Dark Blue Lil' Matriarch from Bento Box Shop and I just use the corners of the Sharpmaker to sharpen it. Very easy really.

Hope it’s ok I quoted your post from the other delivered/upcoming thread.

I’ve always struggled with recurves and such. The Shabaria was the last such one. But I think you’re right. Maybe I should get a Lil Matriarch and keep at it. Because the reverse portion of the blade is where I have my difficulties, and that’s basically what a hawkbill is. All reverse!
