The lines are nice. I like the pivot collar, looks nice in the spare design. Bohler Uddeholm M390 is often regarded as the first among equals when it comes to super steels -- although CPM-20CV and CTS-204P are just about impossible to tell apart chemically, and for that matter in any other way as well, M390 has a habit of turning out just a fraction of a hair better on some tests that are designed to simulate, like, years of wear. That may boil down to a slightly better PM technology producing a slightly purer and more even alloy matrix, or it might just be conventional wisdom at work and there's really no meaningful difference between the three steels. Whatever the difference, M390's good stuff. Slip joints aren't really my thing, or I might pick one up. Spent too long pissing around with them as a kid to be all that nostalgic for them now, and once you get used to using locked blades, it's hard to go back. It's not a quality issue -- the truth is if people use them purposefully they're just fine, and they're less legally controlled and more socially acceptable than pulling out some bigass lockback, and a lot of people are making slipjoints again so clearly there's a demand. Just not from me.

...what Brad Zinker FR? The comment's about a Lucas Burnley MKM slipjoint. At least, that's what I'm seeing. Says 'slip joint' all over the description and even mentions that it's got that 90/180 thing going on. I have the certain idea that one of us is confused about something, but I'm not sure which of us it is.

This knife is over 2" shorter than the Fanga, hardly similar.

Why does it look so much like the Bestech Fanga ?

Oh for the love of......... REALLY?!?!? A groove for thumb opening on one side. A clipless, righty only slipjoint? Whoda thunkit? Leave it to (Mass)Drop to figure out yet another way to screw us leftys over. Please excuse me while I go wallow in self pity and not buy this knife. Yes I know this just a scale alternative and is not an exclusive design for Drop, but that throws a wrench in my whiny narrative..

Just want to point out that for one hundred and forty bucks, a guy could buy about 10 bottles of Beefeaters and a good sized jar of olives.

The Roku is a lovely gin - on my tastebuds, but then I also like The Botanist. I like a gin with a bit of bite. Gin Mare is also a nice one to try - Spanish. And I'm quite partial to our "local" gin...

The description says ebony wood. Can someone confirm it?

The price at other retailers is $110 for black anodized aluminum and $140 for wood choices which does not include ebony as on DROP. Unless you want ebony scales there is no advantage to buying it here.

It looks like Drop has this specific version only....but the versions pretty much this same size online are $110 vs. $140 with some slight variations.

I like it a lot, but that blue detail is really unnecessary and spoils the look for me

Agreed. The blue pivot collar adds some color without looking ridiculous. I'm less enthusiastic about what is going on around the lanyard hole. I think he knife would look better without that entirely.
