Mine arrived yesterday and honestly I’m underwhelmed. Blade has slight side to side play with pivot being to tight for it to drop shut. If I loosen the pivot, it’s only going to be worse. I agree with another person here saying fit and finish was rough for the price point. Scales really need work. Seems like it’s a glorified Grip in my opinion. Not up to par with other knives I’ve purchased from Drop, and seems to be overpriced for what was delivered.

Mine's arrived. I was worried about the axis lock. I needn't have -- they nailed it. It works like it should. It is NOT easy to do that so they deserve kudos. The pivot was indeed tight OOTB, and what's more, it was apparently Loctited to hell's crosslots and back. Judicious application of heat and grunt was enough to loosen the pivot enough to tune it to drop the blade shut. But as another person noted, once the pivot loosens it's quite a bit like a Benchmade. I think the handle could stand a little more bevel. The overall finish of the knife is a bit rough for the price point -- not ugly, just kind of half-polished if you follow me. I'm going to mess with it for a while before leaving a review but I gotta say I'm pretty happy with the pick-up. It's a little better than I was expecting to see.

" If the locking mechanism looks familiar, it should; developed by McHenry and Williams, this style of lock has been a key component of Benchmade knives over the last two decades. That’s because it’s widely recognized as the strongest and safest locking mechanism there is....." Who writes this garbage? It's simply not true. Maybe we can get Lynn and his posse to hang some weights on it. Having said that, I have several Benchmades and I am very fond of them. I have never broken an Omega spring, but reading material found on the internet indicates that this is not an uncommon problem. If I had not just splurged on a Native 5 in Cruwear, I might be ordering this. My diatribe is directed at the advertising, not the knife. In closing, I would like to say that I am ever so happy that I did not see the original iteration of this when I had a few extra bucks in the bank. A big thank you to all those who expressed their displeasure with it.

Any chance this comes out with metal scales? I know many don't like em for a variety of reasons, but the option is nice.

Just ordered 2.knives all excited coming to north central Minnesota where it is currently snowing. One of the knives is the Perpetua any thoughts on that.

The 2.0 is an awesome knife. It solved all the problems with the first run. It's basically what the knife should have been the first time. I am happy with this version but will say I am sad I bought 2 of the first run. I feel let down in a way knowing I have 2 that are sub par and probably lose my butt on the secondary.

What I've heard people say about Nitro V is that it's got similarities to a few different steels that can take a really sharp edge. No one says it's hard to sharpen, no one says it's soft either. Sounds like it can take decent hardness. How Nitro V compares to some other steels available thru Drop:

Note that this is a molar mass analysis, not an analysis by weight. If you're hazy on your high school chemistry, this just means that the graph is trying to track the ratio of atoms in the alloy matrix, not just the weight. Here's a shot of the analysis.
search
Some, but not a ton of carbon. A standard amount of chromium for a stainless steel. No molybdenum at all, no tungsten. It's got traces of vanadium -- frankly, numbers which you might find in a lot of runs of non vanadium steel if it were produced on equipment that also made vanadium steel. As you can see, the 'super steels' in the graph, M390 and S35VN, and even that old workhorse D2, all have significant amounts of vanadium -- it's known to contribute to wear resistance. No copper, no nickel, no niobium, but as the name suggests, Nitro-V is the only one of these steels to have any nitrogen infused into the steel. I know a little less about how nitrogen steel behaves under load and over time than I would like to know. It seems to be one of those things like sulfur that at some concentrations can be helpful and at others, a problem. The summary also notes that the figures from Nitro V are from the manufacturer and seem a little too precise to come from random measurement, so frankly the ultimate composition of Nitro V might be somewhat different. Overall, the zknives summary suggests Nitro V is most like AEB-L or Sandvik with a few tweaks. That isn't half bad company.

My absolute favorite knife. I have the first run and will order this one as well but dang, hate, hate the pocket clip. Was hoping this one would be flatter and smaller. This one catches on everything. I swapped out my old one for a better clip but had to rob from another knife I had. But I’m still going to order. I have the gray, maybe go for the green to tell them apart.
