I find it’s so frustrating that Vox designs never seem to be left-landed compatible. I know more people are right handed and I accept that companies will design their products as such, but at least make the pocket clip ambidextrous

This one is not worth that cost. The drop is for 165. Which is too expensive for poor performance m390 and aluminum scales.

Hrc does not matter in this case. Why.. Read my previous post in this thread. Microstructure is what matters for performance. This m390 does not have a microstructure for cutting or edge retention. So at 60hrc or even higher it will not act like what m390 is supposed to. They care about the steel name and not the heat treatment nor cutting performance. They want to sell knives that's it. Because people don't know they are taking advantage of customers.

I came back to buy this knife because the add I saw here in DROP said that its scales were TITANIUM. Huge mistake. For a stunning version of the titanium scaled SURU see Urban EDC Supply. Unfortunately, all blues are sold out...

So yes it was certainly a more attractive option when Titanium scales were part of the item description. And of course the detent on Maniago made knives isnt always perfect. It will never fall shut like a WE or ZT. But this is a knife I have wanted for ages (particularly the CF model). And hard anodized blue aluminum can look really really good in person (see the mordax for a great example). So I'm in on this one. Something else I wanted to mention is the relatively soon expected ship date. I wish more Drop orders would ship right after the drop period ends

And of course as I give props for the expected ship date being so soon I get the email saying it's been delayed.

What's new, DROP misses it again. I have gone from being a very active customer to hardly looking at the site anymore.

Update for those that joined the drop before this post. We mistakenly listed the handle as Titanium, but it is actually Aluminum. Our CS team will be reaching out to the members that have already joined with the option to cancel their orders should they no longer want the knife with an aluminum handle.

It seems there should be a price adjustment based on this new information. Titanium is a very premium material, especially compared to aluminum. I would think that the price for this knife was set based on the incorrect information and subsequently, a price change and partial refund should be in order. Thank you.

FOX have the worst m390 performance in the market. The value due to this is so low. They just use m390 because it's popular to sell knives. The heat treatment is not going to perform as well as lesser steels. Fox, lionsteel, viper, mkm, etc all use the same m390 heat treatment profile at the same ht facility in Italy. All these companies also grind there knives dry introducing more heat and ruin the temper also. Ht for these brands is done at Trattamenti Termici Todesco SAS and the profile was developed by lionsteel. You can even read that LionSteel tested there own m390 and it performs poorly for them also. In this thread they even got advice to make it better but ignored it. https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/lionsteel-steels.1168429/ You can watch the cut tests on the poor performance of Italy m390 at Outpost 76 on YouTube. Manufacturers that can't do it properly shouldn't be using this steel. Just scamming customers. Bringing the value of there knives down.

Any chance Drop can get the Carbon Fiber model?

Can Drop please confirm that the Handle: Titanium? All other Fox models (minus carbon fiber) have aluminum handles, that makes a huge difference.

Thank you. I'm going to ask to get out of this. I should've known that it wasn't titanium. As I said before, I've never seen this anodization color on titanium and I still haven't. Oh well, Drop has a knack for having the wrong dimensions, materials and descriptions of knives. When two of my Gents arrived with stripped Phillips head pivot screws, their answer to my warranty was that it was used error and they would not replace the screws or pivot, even though current Gents use a different pivot because of this problem. Somehow, without even have used the knives they blame it on user error. They also have me see assistance in trying to replace the screws or pivots. Thankfully, Ferrum Forge was quick to respond and tried to help me, but still haven't provided new screws or pivots. But, I gave up last summer and just used a lot of red Loctite and haven't even tried to use them since then. It's dad because I want to live those knives. I even had custom macassar ebony and black & white thing scales made for them.

Seems to be more of a problem with FF than Drop.
