Product Description
Our second collaboration with Bob Terzuola—known as the godfather of the tactical folder—the Cyrus takes its name from Cyrus the Great, the founder of the first Persian Empire. Based on Terzuola’s custom design, our version is about 1.8 inches shorter to save pocket space ... Read More

Hey everyone, The Persian-style knife is an ancient design that’s enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity. Though modern users are (hopefully) not using them for their original purpose of piercing chain mail, the blade profile is just as useful for modern everyday carry as it was on the battlefield. This is our first collaboration to feature the classic Persian style, but it’s our second with legendary knife maker Bob Terzuola. It was an honor and a pleasure working with Bob again, who was gracious in allowing us to interpret his gorgeous custom Persians with over 4" blades into something a bit more pocket-friendly for our EDC-oriented community. Our first collaboration, the Compact Tactical Folder (CTF), is a smaller, slimmer, and straighter blade than this big-bellied Persian. Based on community feedback from some of the 1700+ members who have picked up a CTF so far, the only consistent thing identified as needing improvement was that edges of the G-10 scales felt a bit sharp. So, for the Cyrus, we’ve worked with our partners at WE Knife to round off the corners a bit more to keep the grip comfortable. The Cyrus is also the first collaboration to feature our new custom Drop-branded pivot hardware. Based on consistent member feedback about laser markings on the blades, we knew it was time for a change. So, this new CNC-machined pivot screw has replaced the laser-marked branding on the blade surface that we’ve used on most prior Blades collabs. Even when you’re working with industry pioneers like Bob, member feedback has made some crucial improvements on the design. Thanks to the members who supported past launches and gave some great feedback to help improve this latest design. We hope you like the new look. As always, a few housekeeping notes as we get started: * Quantities for the pre-order are limited to 600 units. * The limited time pre-order price will be $160 for your early support and will only apply to this pre-order production run, ending on 5/29. * The regular price will be $200. Thanks for checking out the Cyrus, we hope you think it’s great! Carry On -- Jonas

Agreed. It is minimal and cleverly adds to the design. The new "D" logo helps.

I thought this was available til the end of the month for preorder. I come today to finally join and its sold out? How can it be sold out on a preorder that hasnt even been made yet? Also I asked on this same forum if there was a limited amount or any possibility that this product's drop could end after a limited amount of sales. I'm extremely disappointed I missed out in the MCF version of this.

They'll be back after the pre-production orders get filled, so about six-seven months from now. The price bump is gonna suck but it's the way she blows, in my case I just wasn't going to sell anything to get in on the first run and now that I wish I did it's too late.

Kinda how I feel. I know it will be back but I also want the MCF version so I'm guessing it will be around 220. That may take it to a range where I'd prefer something else where at $180 I was sold. Have to find out when time comes in a few months on whether I'll still want to pay that much for a liner lock. I got the buc and crux before price increase and would definitely pay the regular price now after owning them. But on the Gent the price increase made it where I was no longer interested and ultimately never bought the knife. At that price pt ($100-120) I just had better options imo.

Could not decide which handle material to go for, but finally went for the linen micarta, as it is smoother and maybe will take shamfering and so on better. Also i do not have other dark micarta handles. Placed my order just under the wire

Can you post a pic with the first Terzuola collab? It was nice, just too small for me. I think the specs have this bigger but a picture would help a lot.

This could have been the perfect EDC. Just a lanyard loop at the front side of the butt (rounded or not) and would have jumped on this with a quickness. The profile is perfect for the addition.

You could probably have a lanyard-compatible backspacer made up for it, I bet that wouldn't cost much depending on what material you want for it, and it would be a neat way to customize.

For me the perfect version would be the carbon fiber with stone washed blade. Seems to be made for each other.

About your statement concerning trying to make things people love. It's possible that I'm terminally unique, but the CS Recon 1 in CTS-XHP, drop point is one of my all time favorites. (It's a long list; I will forgo reproducing it.)

I'd buy this in a heartbeat if they drilled 2 little holes for lefthand carry or outright made a left handed model. Unfortunately for us lefties and for the manufacturer, ignorance stopped the manufacturer from drilling those 2 little holes. How stupid!

It hurts when i'm being told what a big and wonderful collaboration some of these knife projects and and then get left high and dry. At least the Gavko knife offered left handed.

I don't blame Massdrop. I blame the idiots who design these knives. Massdrop probably should suggest the knife makers accommodating lefties but really Massdrop is making very little on each knife sale while the manufacturer is making the majority of the profits on each project. Hopefully Massdrop (or Drop) is reading these posts and recommend lefty options but I won't be holding my breath.
