Seems like a deal with the new price, despite all the valid and less than valid complaints. Looks good. Good steel (however hard or soft it is). No clip or lock. A gentleman's knife. I'll carry it when I'm pretending.

no lock, no deal here. Also the manufacturing inconsistency reported in several reviews makes me wary.

I would buy in a heartbeat if it had a pocket clip!

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.

Agreed. Waste of the M390.

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.

Ahh yes, somehow I think my comment was posted in the wrong location as I was looking at the Zinker FR in S35VN not sure how it posted here

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.

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 description says ebony wood. Can someone confirm it?
