I wanted this knife really bad, Axis lock is my favorite mechanism. But that colored inner liner ruins it for me. Colors are fine, but when it's the only option it really limits those it appeals to. Hopefully Gerber offers an all gray option. Otherwise this looks like a really promising knife.

Welp...was going to pull the trigger but after tax and shipping, it’s cheaper on amazon, who has it in stock and can have it to me in 2 days. 🤷‍♂️

I'd give Gerber a large chunk of money if they would put their FAST system on a high-quality blade.

Fair enough, but it's my favorite locking system of any I've ever used, and I've had tons of working knives. Hate liner/frame locks, buttons make me nervous in my back pocket, lockbacks are awkward, etc. Axis locks are good enough but they're just not as, well... fast, lol. I don't ever think about opening and closing it when I'm working on something, it just sorta happens automatically. I don't notice things like grit, generally. And the fact that I can get a two pack at Home Depot for like $20 is nice because I don't have to worry about f***ing up the blades. But it'd be real nice to have a good blade for a change.

Fair enough. I own more than one FAST knife, myself. :) I myself am leaning more toward plunge locks these days as much as axis and compression locks tho. I'd never put a pocket knife in my back pocket so I'm not worried about sitting on a button. I think the thing I like about them the most is that the flip on a pure plunge lock is as smooth as it can get -- no detent riding the tang, no springbar messing with the pivot. For a guy like me, that means it's fast, close to being as fast as an automatic, which is not quite as fast as a wave blade, which is the other way I roll.

As usual - no mention of blade length.

Another “Made in China” not indicated on Drop, but found another website with the same knife unafraid to indicate the country of origin. Drop usually goes one of two ways, ridiculously expensive or cheap because it is made in China. Saddens me that one must spend $100 to get a good $30 product.

Agree. In fact this knife should be under $20.

Shame on Drop for trying to tempt us with a good-looking folder with junk steel.

I agree. I had to look it up. It's a Chinese GB standard more or less equivalent to 440A.

Same. Ordered the black/red version and received the gray/blue version. So far, no word from Drop's support.

What are you disappointed in other than the steel?

Going in on this one. Why not. I have a whetstone if it needs sharpening and if it’s total crap then it’s not -that- big a loss. Looks nice.
