Spyderco Orange Dodo Sprint

The Dodo, went the way of the Dodo.  After a long, successful run it was discontinued from Spyderco’s product line a number of years ago.  It proved itself a highly popular folding knife, earning a coveted-spot among Spyderco’s Little Big Knife designs.  Spyderco is reviving the Dodo in a limited Sprint Run of 1000 pieces.

Now more than ever, today’s politically correct world gravitates to smaller knives.  Designing a small folder that looks, feels and cuts like a large knife requires superior handle ergonomics, high-level lock strength and quality materials, paired with that small blade.  Short and squat, the Dodo’s blade focuses cutting power around an arcing belly that ends in a finely ground downward curving tip, ideal for detailed/fine cutting.

The blade is Crucible CPMS30V stainless steel available in a PlainEdge that is 2.125” (54mm) long.  Its sensible-sized blade comes with a large obligingly ‘gripable’ safety orange G-10 handle.  Finger choils ergonomically position the hand solidly on the handle from the tang to the tapered pommel for a fistful of leverage that functions flawlessly in a forward or reverse grip.

The locking mechanism is Spyderco’s Ball Bearing LockM featuring a contained steel ball-bearing that when opened, is thrust forward into a recessed area in the blade’s tang via a spring to lock the blade securely open.  It unlocks by pulling back on the ball and can be accessed ambidextrously.

A flexible wire clip settles the Dodo tip-up in a pocket, suitable for left or right and carry.  This Sprint Run is available for a limited time only.
