Got my Perpetua in yesterday number 0022. I have to say that this is a great knife at this price point. I wasn't sure if I would like this knife initially. When I opened the box to inspect it I was pleasantly surprised at the fit and finish of this knife. The action was a little stiff out of the box. So I put a couple of drops of Tufglide on the pivots, drop where the blade rides on the axis lock bar, and drop on each side of the axis lock. I noticed an improvement already. The knife is sharp out of the box but I decided to strop with 3 micron emulsion followed by a couple of passes on a dry strop. Took me all of 5 minutes to make me see why nitro v was used, its literally as sharp as a straight razor. After carrying this knife all day it snow broken in to where I can compare this knife to my year old large griptillian. I definitely like the ergo's better on this knife, it's lighter, thinner, and better finished than my benchmade. I can honestly say the I like it better than my 940-1 as well. I know the pocket clip could be better but I know that Millit will probably make a nice clip for this knife in the future. Saw some people had issues with blade centering ,my knife was perfect out of the box. I do admit the clip is a little on the thin side but it provides more than adequate tension to hold the knife in my pocket. I don't have anything negative to say about this knife, it does what I expect a knife should. It's unobtrusive, don't even notice it in my pocket, takes a keen edge, and its maintains its edge even after cutting up about a dozen cardboard boxes. Great job TJ, Millit , and Massdrop, great knife guys!
Good to see a positive review and some nice photos. Thanks for your review.
On the last picture the pivot screw looks different than on the mass drop pictures. Is it?
wow my g10 has no traction while urs is like skateboard tape 🤔
It actually feels smooth. I does afford enough grip though.
It appears to be slightly smaller in diameter than the proto
I'm not actually weighing the 2 knives , plus I don't own a g10 grip so I believe on paper its lighter but when compared to the one in the picture it feels lighter.
Millit used stock parts in the production pivots in place of the machined parts in the prototype.
