Product Description
Our fourth collaboration with custom knife shop Ferrum Forge, the Buc (short for buccaneer) is the most daring yet—and now it comes in milled patterns for a touch of extra flair. It takes inspiration from traditional Asian cavalry sabres, which is in large part thanks to designer Elliot Williamson’s interest in historical edged weapons ... Read More

Hey everyone, As some of you may know, the prices on some of our Massdrop Made products are increasing. For a little more information on why you can go here (https://www.massdrop.com/talk/21735/pricing-update), but the short of it is that costs have increased over time and a lot of these items were initially underpriced in exchange for early exposure. Know that we’re doing other things to reward your early support, however, through new Launch pricing on newly introduced Massdrop Made products. The new price for the Massdrop x Ferrum Forge Buc Titanium Frame Lock will be $140 starting tomorrow (April 10th). Thanks for your understanding, feedback and support as always.

I don’t know ... but my guess is you will not see this price increase notice on any new drops.

Price changes are your prerogative, and $115 was a steal, although if you look at the number of units sold you'll notice what I think is a significant correlation, and inverse relationship, between that figure and the price. Sometimes a "steal" is only such from the narrow, middle-management perspective, the ones only worried about this quarter's numbers. Step back and consider long-term questions of customer engagement and acquisition, "steals" quite often look like brilliant long-term business planning. "Amateurs discuss tactics, professionals discuss strategy," said von Clausewitz (supposedly). All of that is none of my business though, really. My only complaint is that it's customary in the knife business to give a bit of warning. Spyderco and Benchmade usually announce their (basically annual these days) price increases right after Xmas, then make the change about the second week of January. That's an extreme example, but illustrative; even 24 hrs grace period would have actually helped me a lot in this case. Literally, that would have been the difference between me owning a Buc and now not, unfortunately. $ is tight right now so when I came up on $120 last week there was no question it was going towards a knife. I wanted to buy the best knife possible for that much or less, so I'd been thinking, looking, considering, testing, comparing, and then yesterday it hit me--Massdrop's Buc is only $115, and has free shipping! Now THAT is the undeniable best deal for the money! So to they site I came all ready to buy...and wondered if I was losing my mind. I NEVER forget knife prices. So I appreciate publically acknowledging the price change, at least. That's actually more than some companies have done lately (looking right at you Microtech; I love you, but...we need to talk about our relationship). But if you have to raise prices on knives again, send an email notice with a little grace period. If that had occurred here I would have a Buc and would have feel great that Massdrop took care of me by telling me about the change proactively and with time for me to take advantage of the old price. Simple-minded MBA-types shrink in horror at the idea--"we don't want to advertise a price increase!"--but folks who understand humans know this isn't the case. Proactively delivering news people might not like, combined with a grace period before the change, actually makes people MORE likely to retain goodwill for the company, and defend their price increases as necessary. It's like a kid who breaks something and brings it to his parents straight away: the fact he didn't lie or try to hide it makes the parents feel less upset about the broken item than pleased to have a kid they can trust. As much as said MBA-types wish it, customers--the engaged ones anyway--are going to notice, so turn the negative into a positive by telling them in advance. Win/win.

How does this knife compare to the Bestech Hornet? Anyone have both or any experience with both? I'm really interested in a sheepsfoot style blade.

I just bought this knife last week at 115 and it is absolutely amazing. Is it worth $140 (I predicted 135)? Yes. But would I pay that now? No. It's the principle at this pt. I knew it was coming so I jumped in last week. I missed out on the gent and refuse to pay 100 now even though I really really want one of those too. The pt is I love these knives. But I really really dislike the price increases. I will not pay the increased price as I feel it only contributes to the problem.

Yes, I agree, $115 for me too. I mean WT. ? I feel like MassDrop is playing games with their customers. No...they are playing games...I personally do not see this as a good business practice. It’s a little bit like bait and switch. And yes...the Gent went from $79 to $100...it to is a great knife but...really? Is this MassDrops business plan? So they drop a new knife, at a decent price and if it is a hit and they get enough votes, bring it back and raise the price about twenty percent, or closer to 25%...not cool.

Take your fingers off the lock bar when flipping. It's an easy mistake to make with this knife since it is so thin, and one that I also have to remain conscious of as well.

Lol...yes that was a problem. But after that determination, it was a whole lot better until I purchased an upgraded version. It is a great knife but it’s obvious it was built differently than the bottom line knife.

Where does this sit in terms of fit in the hand? Tough to tell from the pics but it looks a bit slimmer than the Crux but meatier than the Dao?

It feels very similar to my 940-2 (while not using the choil of course).

Unfortunately, for EDC in Canada. The maximum legal length a blade can be to keep in your pocket is 3 inches. If this was 3 inches, I would for sure Buy this blade.

Massdrop actually offers refunds for knives seized by Canadian customs, they generally get through ok.

Good to know re: refunds, thank you. As for the "Canadian situation" with knives lately, my understanding is that it's the CBSA who got their knickers in a knot for unknown reasons and tightened up their policies at the border - nothing to do with federal or provincial law (at least in terms of the recent importing problems).
