When we got together with Eric Ochs for our third collaboration, we set out to create a knife that was even more compact and pocket-friendly than before—but just as much of a workhorse when you needed it to be. The Drop + Eric Ochs Otter is a laidback gentleman’s knife that does double duty as a magnetic bottle opener. Made with a solid S35VN blade with all the brawn you could ask for in a compact presentation, and a handle with Ochs’ signature, ergonomic egg shape, this folder is the perfect size and weight for everyday carry.

Yeah, that's what I was saying earlier about shooting a grey card first, then adjust the whole batch based on that. For like $20, solve all the issues with bronzes, and oversaturated timascus glamor shots, and all that fun stuff

He sells customs. They have no drop branding whatsoever.

I'm honestly on the fence with this folder. On the one hand I love the blade profile and s35vn is a great steel. On the other hand as some commenters have mentioned, that bottle opener on the handle looks like it will be mighty uncomfortable on my palm. It just seems like a unnecessary gimmick that really ruins the handling of this knife

Its actually what has got me interested enough to look at buying one. Massdrop has dozens of their own knives on here, this is the first one with a bottle opener. Gotta appreciate it, especially since I find myself looking for a bottle opener sometimes.

I have the CRKT Bev-Edge model, and it also has a similar bottle opener. It is annoying and gets snagged on my pocket sometimes when I go to remove it from my pocket. Will never buy another knife with this option again. Thankfully I spent less than $30 on it.

I'm sorry but I'm not ever excited with a titanium liner lock no matter what, they're not safe compared to other forms of locking

I do a lot of outdoor activities. And have have liner locks fail due to dirt rocks branches getting jammed into liner, and not on purpose either. I don't abuse my tools but I definitely use them.

I can see how the debris can accumulate in the liner and disengage the liner lock. I personally never encountered that as I guess I use my folders a bit differently than you. Personally I use my folders mostly for everyday tasks and when I go camping or are doing any outdoors stuff I'll have my fixed blades on me.

I may have missed it...does this titanium liner lock have a steel insert or is it just straight titanium? I may be wrong but every time I have watched or read test reviews on straight titanium liner locks they do not hold up well to hard use or long time wear against steel blades...anybody out there that can vouch for the contrary?

It's going to be a titanium lockface that's been carbidized, when done well it's a perfectly fine way of making a knife. On a framelock it's generally easier, maybe a little more beneficial to just use an insert but liner locks can come either way. On the four Gents I have had (3xG10 for me and two gifts plus a CF), the Lynx by Reate, the CTF, and the liner lock Dogtooth, there hasn't been any lockstick and they don't seem any worse for the wear I put them through. I tend to fidget with them while doing other things so the lockface does get used even though the thing I do most often with any pocketknife is trim a rolling paper.

Way to screw the lefty community that you used to provide a ton of options to. I would have bought this in a heartbeat if only for a lefty clip option, and bought 3 if they'd come in a lefty liner lock..

Does the pivot assembly have a 'D' slot to prevent slipping and make disassembly easier?

To everyone that's talking about the bottle opener, I think they're maybe on the wrong track. Frankly I assumed the original post about the huge hotspot on the palm was a reference to the end of the clip, not the bottle opener.

It's hard to say for sure whether or not it'd rub, but when you look at how far down the angle is canted on that bottle opener it looks like it's out of the palm's way. The hump of the spine will be what's buried in the meat of your palm, and I think that bottle opener's going to be pointing away from it unless you're holding it with a very odd grip.

In any case I'm not super worried about it -- because this is the sort of knife I'd put in my pocket if I intended to pop a couple adult sodas, not if I had a few thousand boxes to break down. For the person who's going 'WTF, maybe you folks ain't been watching the news but there's no way I have $125 for this, please do a version I can afford:' there's an Ochs knife with a bottle opener that CRKT's selling for under $40 called the Bev Edge, that is based on the Ochs Lagoon, not the Otter. That might be more your speed -- but lol be warned, some people harbor strong opinions as to how different these two knives are, and you might have some extra conversation along with your knife. Me? I'm thinking of picking one of these up.
