Im trying to do pcr cloning of a gene by adding 2 different restriction enzymes to the pcr primers.

The enzymes I plan to use are EcorV and not1 at pcdna3.0 multiple cloning site. Ecorv yields blunt ends while not1 yields sticky ends. Is this possible? Both enzymes are compatible with a single buffer from NEB.

Im new to cloning and would appreciate any advice.

It should be fine. Note that blunt end cloning is orders of magnitude less efficient than sticky end. Make sure that you have a few bases (3-6 usually) 5' of the restriction site on the primers, so that the restriction enzymes have something to hold onto when cutting.
