Dodo™ Orange Sprint Run™
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 Lock™ 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.
