So which one of these options come with 8Cr13MoV vs. D2? I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the detail. Historically, it's only been the black blade, which I have no interest in.

Won't massdrop collaborate with CRKT to produce a Massdrop-exclusive version with S30V steel (or other steel) like what BladeHQ did? I would buy it in a heartbeat

I really like this knife, it's a great size for EDC in my admittedly inexperienced opinion. I can't leave a review because I didn't buy it from Massdrop (I found it $5 cheaper somewhere else with fast shipping), but wherever you buy it from I think you'll be happy with it.

I always see people bitching about the pricing of drops cause they can find it for maybe a lil cheaper or same price as amazon or some of the other knife distributors. Massdrop has never said they are the cheapest or best deal, but they are going to offer better deals then the manufacturer direct will.

You linked the wrong product. The knife you posted is the higher end D2 steel version which costs more. This is the knife in the drop.

But what is the justification that folks should use, and tell themselves, in order to pay more for the item at Massdrop than somewhere else for the same item? Is there an implied loyalty that is supposed to overwhelm us and drive us to buy from Massdrop, no matter what? Have to remember to factor in shipping and sales tax as well. Because if there is a secret way to get folks to blindly follow Massdrop no matter what the cost, then I'd like to know the secret, so that I can do this myself as well.

Too bad they didn't do this one in D2. Probably would have bought one in D2. Lots of folks might have bought one in D2.

Hi! You’ve responded to a comment on a drop from earlier in the year. MD likes to reuse drops, even when they make substantial changes.

This looks similar to my Bestech Hornet except the handle is smaller and much prettier. Looking at my Hornet, I recall what one girl in my high school said about the day after The Beatles appeared on Ed Sullivan. "Ringo's so ugly he's cute." I wouldn't go that far. The green and black hand is ugly to the bone, or liners. (It feels wonderful in hand.) I was thinking that if everyone carried one of these, would it be a Pilar of Society? And was it really named after a sail boat? It sounds more likely to have been named after a pharmacist or the dope man.

lol i just bought this knife last week off BladeHQ. $50 for the D2 black coated blade with black G10 scales. Don't buy here, this isn't a deal at all. Any other knife store selling these will ship out faster and have a decent return policy.

Awesome external design and disastrous construction. If deployment and maintenance are not considered this is a very nice knife.

Got the G10/D2 version of the original-sized Pilar from Blade HQ (for $40). I like everything about it except the action. It's difficult to open one-handed and almost impossible to flick open. I put a drop of oil on the pivot, but that didn't seem to help much. Only had it a couple of days, so maybe it will break in and get better.

Mine sure did: after a day or two I’m able to “spydiflick” mine. I’m shocked at how GOOD the action is on mine both before and after I swapped the scale and backspacer. I suggest playing with yours some Moore.

This is another not-a-great-deal. D2 blade steel & G10 scale (tan or olive green, not black) available for $39.99 on BladeHQ. All-blacked out version w/D2 steel is $49.99 on both Blade HQ and KnifeCenter.com

Exactly. Plus both those places ship right away and are easy to work with on returns if needed (which has NOT been my experience with MD). $15 off retail isn’t a good deal when no one sells them for retail.

Massdrop did issue me a refund, albeit begrudgingly. I had to be stern, direct, and insistent. It's going to take more than a refund for Massdrop to win me back. Frankly, I think this is the last time I need to do business with them.

I certainly hope so, with the extra cost and the added flipper functionality, it's begging for them to spend a few cents on getting some PB washers.

Yes, they appear to be. They are white so either Teflon or Nylon. I have not taken it apart to verify.

I was actually looking at those yesterday. Several handle colors also. Now they need to come out with the large pilar in satin d2. I think it would be a big seller.

I would like to see more color options. I am growing weary of black. I like orange and Blade HQ offered an orange scale for the original Pilar. I pulled the trigger anyway because of the great price.

I LOVE the original Pilar, definitely getting the large..... grab it for a few bucks less at Amazon...."out of stock" now, but will probably be back in and at your door before MD can get it there. https://www.amazon.com/Pilar-Large-Folding-Pocket-Knife/dp/B07JY6YC4Z/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1546989863&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=crkt+pilar&dpPl=1&dpID=21oBRf9P4SL&ref=plSrch
