I have been prone to carry just as large blades at work (if permitted) as I carry in public or at home, trying to keep it legal but effective with one SE and one PE.. But I have discovered that the Wings SlipIt is just about the perfect general purpose pocketknife for jobs where the longer blades might draw unwanted attention.
The G10/stainless bolstered handle is one of the most elegant designs I've seen in any designed blade and if the clip is off (I'm using mine for now but will likely change that) the look is nearly identical due to the symmetrical appearance for having either blade out.
The blades are slightly different - the plain edge has a little more belly and is closer to a UKPK or Cat (just between the two) in length and a kind of stylized sheepsfoot footprint, ending in a snubby nose but with an index finger curve from the end of the flattened hump, so also a bit like a Hunter/Stretch if you ground the nose semi-stubby. The serrated edge is notably flatter and almost a Rescue profile but also with a bit of an index finger curve to it. Cutting edge is identical length despite a listing of a tiny difference in total blade length - both are listed as a 2.24 inch cutting edge. All 4 bolster surfaces are drilled for placement of the 4-way clip, and the default clip position means that the exposed tip-up hole (I am right-handed) is for the serrated blade. This works for me as I would likely want something a little bit longer for most food prep, though I cut through some thin steaks for dinner tonight (sorry, no pics - cooked in olive oil, butter and Tex-Mex seasoning for tacos )
Two identical slabs of mildly grippy G10-type material (about the same as on the Tenacious line IMO) line the sides and are small enough that I think this knife is a good candidate for Kiwi/Kopa-style customization. As they are bolt-on, they should be easy to remove, and I plan to try a couple of techniques, likely in hardwood on one side and semiprecious gem or a composite of pieces of such on the other (I have stones that would be much prettier with skeletonized liners which I may try in the future on another knife and I'd like to add that the drilled/tapped holes for the 2 small (T6) Torx screws (may be Hex on some models, but I haven't seen them yet as mine is all Torx) go through the liners, allowing for possible tiny pins or similar for the ambitious to try (one hole is not covered by the closed tip of each blade - I would probably put a thin pin through each side with the blades removed, run them through the knife with the pivot pins for consistent straight pins, get them tight on the scales, cut them with a Dremel-style cutoff wheel and then pull the sides apart to ball-peen/grind them as flat and tight as plausible).
To look at each end of the closed knife, they also appear identical, with the exception that the side with the plain edge tip (where the SE pivot is) looks like the blade sits higher due to its curvature, just a little bit. This is cool because it leaves the slightly different blade spines to look almost identical. With exception of rather minute differences owing to the blade shape differences, this knife appears to have near-perfect symmetry closed (rotationally, that is, staring at the knife while it sits on its back and is rotated 180 degrees from any position, without the clip it appears identical - and with the same rotational axis, it in fact looks nigh identical
from any direction - opening both blades changes this a bit but not to any detriment as the functional advantages of this knife over other 2-bladed opposing jackknife type setups are apparent).
The PE seems to be pretty effective - it cuts food that is not especially large or thick extremely well, and the blade is 8Cr13MoV which came sharp and sharpens up easily. i haven't really gotten it dull yet.
The SE actually really impressed me today - i don't have a loupe to check for microchips but after putting it through heavy triple-thick corrugated cardboard (used to package and freight ship a large cooler for a bar) it required a little sawing in the thickest parts and slipped right through the thinner (from bending) corners, taking only a couple of minutes to turn pretty heavy stuff into posterboard. Most interestingly, all wear appears to have been light edge rolling as i stropped both sides of the edge on the same cardboard and the edge is almost like new (I think one serrated point is a little rolled still, but I will try to strop it out more before putting it on the SharpMaker to sharpen). A still-decent utility knife (using the trapezoidal type razor blades) stopped dead in that cardboard almost immediately - someone tried to cut the same cardboard the day before and gave up - right tool for the job and all!
Also (and this is a big deal) the snubby points should lead to pretty safe cutting and the spring detent seems to leave good tactile response before closing even halfway, with or without finger in the 50/50 choils. This same tip design means you're gonna have to drop this knife a *long* ways to hurt it - dropped on concrete, I don't even see the mark - okay, maybe a tiny smudge on the SE tip but as it is not very pointy, no clear difference in cutting.
In closing, I have few knives that I find rival this in sheer beauty and the functionality and safety rival locking double-bladed knives as well, in my opinion. With easy customization potential, the possibility of customizing/"pimping" is great, particularly after clip removal, or bending the clip to match new handle material. Awesome knife, thanks for making it byrd/Spyderco!
