    Uhhh....I'm pretty sure they're long gone? I know there's a full size sprint that's fairly recent but the Dyad Jr in ATS-55 is way out of production. Found it at my local B&M.

    This may be the full size sprint run; it is a third party seller. https://www.amazon.com/Dyad-Gray-G-10-Blades-Serrated/dp/B00DG8O3EM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1520468785&sr=8-1&keywords=spyderco+dyad

    This is the product description given:

    Product description
    The Dyad revolutionized the concept of the traditional twin-blade pocketknife by adding the advantages of one-handed opening, convenient clip carry, reliable patented by-pass lock mechanisms, and both the cutting power of a serrated edge and the finesse of a plain edge. This pocket powerhouse is back in limited quantities as a Sprint run, featuring textured gray G-10 scales and an all-new four-position clip. Its VG-10 stainless steel blades include a SpyderEdge sheepsfoot profile and a full-flat-ground plain edge clip-point, giving you the power and versatility to tackle virtually any cutting chore. length overall 8.02 / 8.42" (204 / 214 mm). blade length 3.37 / 3.77" (86 / 96 mm). blade steel VG-10. length closed 4.65" (118 mm). cutting edge 2.77 / 3.38" (61 / 70 mm). weight 5.8 oz (164 g). blade thickness 0.098" (2.5 mm). handle material G-10.

    They have it priced at $223.85 with only one in stock.

    btw, it matches the description of the Sprint Run (now out of stock) at BladeHQ.

    So it looks like in terms of knives having two equal size (& sizable) blades, I personally know of only two actually in production on the market. One is by Cold Steel, the Cold Steel Lucky; this one has S35 steel blades of 2.625" length and is currently $74.95 at BladeHQ.

    The other is the LM B2, using 420HC steel blades 2.5" long and currently priced at $24.95.

    I already own a LM B2 or I might be considering the Cold Steel. Love to have the Spyderco but I'm tapped out for now! :(



    L'chaim!

    These are the gifts I plan to give to my groomsmen, my dad, and my future father in law as a thanks for being a part of my wedding this May.
    The Sliverax up top is mine, and I plan on giving each person a knife that I think will best suit their personality and interests. Some are avid outdoorsman, others just like tacticool gear, and a few aren't knife nuts, but hopefully this pushes them over the edge.

    From left to right:
    Tenacious Plain
    Tenacious Partial
    Centofante 3
    Delica 4
    Native 5
    Tasman Salt
    UKPK Partial Leaf
    UKPK Partial Drop-Point

    Not pictured is the Partial Serrated Para 3 that I gave my brother (best man) early for helping me plan the bachelor party weekend.

    Each knife is impressive in its own way. I really like the FRN scales of the Delica, Tasman and especially the Native. The Centofante feels and looks much more expensive than it really is. The Tenacious feels strong as hell, and the UKPKs might be the best value knives that Spyderco makes. But the Sliverax is just :censored: sexy, smooth, and flips like a dream. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Not normally a Spyderco fan here, but what's the one on the bottom? It's a real beauty!

    Could it be a Slysz Bowie or a SpydieChef? Can't wait to see @Evil D shed truth on the subject!

    Hey guys,

    That's a Rock Lobster with the butt hump ground off to match the width of the rest of the handle, and the sheepsfoot nose ground down like a wharnie.

    Hey Ken,
    Thanks for the idea, after damaging the tip of my trusty Delica it's now a sweeter Kahr Arms model. It may be a one of a kind now considering the saber grind and combo blade.....What an outstanding EDC knife:).

    I did the same thing to an Endura that I'd damaged. Love the look and feel of the large handle with a smaller more manageable blade.

    For whatever reason I can't get pics to post but last week I added a Yojimbo 2 and a Ronin 2 to my collection of Spyders.
