I would buy this if the HRC was 60-61. I don't consider M390 to be a super steel when run this soft. Thanx for your comment.

For those that care about handle material, the one on knifecenter is aluminum, while the one here is ebony wood. There are two wood-handled versions available on knifecenter for ~$120, but neither is the ebony wood sold here.

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 ?

Aside from the generally lean and organic lines they share, the only similarity I see is the nail nick fuller on the Fara looking like a one sided version of the same fuller style the Fanga has. That's a stylistic element like the pipette 'fuller' found along the spine of some French 19th century military sabres and some Japanese swords or knives, and is used by other knife designers today

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.

It's a Mcusta Tsuchi. It comes in two versions - large and small. This is the smaller version. It has a hammered effect laminated Damascus VG10 blade. One of my favourite EDC knives.

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.
