Wasn't this knife $100 a couple weeks ago?

Yes for like the last 6 months it had been at a reduced price of 100. Now that they finally decided to make it with a reasonably attractive scale color, it's back to 129 It's sad really bc at 100 bucks I'd be in for it without hesitation. Now that its 129 I will most likely pass based on principal alone. Blue is probably my favorite color, and I really want nitrov in a folder, but I'm simple not paying 30 extra bucks for it.

They just priced this knife out of the market (for knowledgeable collectors). Those extra $30 will force the Perpetua into much tougher competition. Quality control issues aside, this knife struggles to compete in its current price category.

Nice that new handle scale options are available, but Nitro-V should be run much harder than 58-59 HRc for optimal cutting performance. Hard pass.

Source: https://knifesteelnerds.com/2019/09/23/nitro-v-its-properties-and-how-to-heat-treat-it Nitro-V looks very similar to AEB-L with a nitrogen and vanadium addition. The nitrogen addition, however, did not increase chromium in solution for enhanced corrosion resistance and the vanadium addition was insufficient for grain refinement according to simulation software. The nitrogen may itself increase the corrosion resistance somewhat relative to AEB-L. Nitro-V is capable of approaching 64 Rc when heat treated for maximum hardness, and can of course be heat treated for lower hardness as well depending on the desired properties. Nitro-V has a very fine microstructure and very good toughness when compared with other steels. Overall the properties of Nitro-V are expected to be similar to AEB-L with perhaps an improvement in corrosion resistance,

I am thrilled to see Drop post HRc values. Thank you, Jonas. But the values for this blade do not make it anything special or does it serve as a reason to consider purchase.

I've tried every significant knife locking mechanism and the Axis lock is by far my favorite. There is simply nothing else that can do one hand flick open/closed as well as this mechanism can. This looks like a great knife. I hope you offer it in different blades closer to the BM Tanto and drop point styles and in more scale colors.

Have you handled the PM2?. I prefer it. I have several Benchmades. The axis is a very good lock. I picked up a SOG (can't recall the model) with their arc lock. I was quite impressed. The scorpion lock on the AD15 is nifty. Probably a matter of taste......unless you ask Lynn Thompson. Nick Shabazz did a nice review of lock types. .

I put my order in on May 27. Drop sent me a refund yesterday 6/1 stating, the item I ordered was back ordered and they didn’t know when they would be available. This was the “gray” version.. Reordering the Green version. Anyone else have the same issue?

Yep, same here. I won't do green though. Just not my color.

I received one of the green models a couple weeks ago. I like it, the action is smooth. It feels very robust, Just hate that I couldn’t get the color I wanted.

Has the pocket clip been revised? I returned the early one I purchased. The early versions were very “soft”, would bend very easy and not spring back. Would like to purchase another one.

I'd be really interested in a smaller version of this knife. I currently carry a Bnechmade mini-Griptilian that is at least 8 years old, now. It would be nice to have a second knife as a secondary or just-in-case piece. The mini is something like 6 3/4" open, and I find that to be the sweet spot for me in knife size.

Yeah, it might be ok for most people, and it doesn't seem like much of a difference, but it compares very closely to the standard Benchmade Griptilian for dimensions. This knife has a thinner overall handle and is roughly 0.2" shorter in closed length and blade length than the Griptilian, but it is significantly heavier. I accidentally bought a standard Griptilian a year or so ago thinking I would get another knife of the same brand/style as I already had to serve as a backup, but I didn't realize at the time that the knife I had was the "mini" variety. When I got it, I tried to carry it for a while and just couldn't like it. I ended up giving it to my mom so she would have something that was high quality to carry in her purse. I just sort of grew up carrying a knife with a handle that is just big enough to fit my hand, and I prefer something thin and light in my pocket. That's not to say that this knife is too big in general... just too big for my taste. I hope they decide to come out with a mini version like Benchmade did. If they do, I'd really like to grab one. I think I'd like the thin, flat scales better than the thicker, rounded ones Benchmade uses, but otherwise love the ambidextrous clip option and locking mechanism of both knives.

I don't own this knife, but dimension-wise, it seems closer to the Bugout. Price-wise as well. That being so, it is to the Perpetua's detriment. The Bugout is superior in every way- with better steel, and a MUCH lighter and slimmer body. Judging by the reviews, the slide lock is nowhere near as reliable as the Bugout's. There are many comments regarding poor QC on the Perpetua. Which is concerning. I can't imagine anyone spending $130 on this Drop collaboration, rather than the Benchmade (unless one already has a Bugout and is just out collecting things).

Been using mine more than a week now. Rock solid. Not a thing wrong with it. In fact fit, finish, sharpness, lock-up, deployment all are top notch.

Just got my knife in yesterday. I’m not having any of the issues seen in the comments. The action is a bit stiff, as in it doesn’t drop shut, but it is not tight by any means nor do I have much blade play at all. Really impressed with my unit.
