11/12/2019 In spite of most of these reviews, negative or otherwise being from 2018 I would sure like to hear if they have resolved some of the issues mentions, an easy on to fix would be the rusty washers, ugg!

Probably better to stick with the massdrop collabs here. Either that or buy a fancy Spyderco. At latest the secondary market price is much better.

With Rike's recent unrepentant ripping off of a Justin Lundquist design (not the first time they've done something highly similar to an existing design) and them doubling down by joking about it on instagram while blocking those who brought up the issue... it will be a long time before I ever consider buying one of their knives.
If they are going to act like a high end Ganzo, I'll treat them like I do Ganzo and not buy their knives.

Hey, you leave Ganzo out of this. They never pretended to be anything other than extremely cheap knockoffs.

Anyway, what you're discussing sounds a lot like ghost shift knives that are being produced illicitly in the factory Rike uses for manufacture -- people might be getting together after their official work shift ends and throwing together models with no QC and with cheaper material, and putting the brand name on it. Or they might be taking the knives from one production run -- the HX outdoor line -- and putting those 'Rikeknife' engravings on them and doing a deal with Massdrop or a middleman. This is an endemic problem with Chinese knives - and the higher the quality of the knife, the more pressure there is to run a ghost shift to make knockoffs, except with an accurate label. People look around for deals on knives from a Chinese manufacturer and they sure do find people who are willing to cut them a deal. Sometimes, this is why.

Well no so the guy who makes Rike Knives (I believe it's just one person, hence why they're so expensive and fancy and blah blah) outsources his designs/materials/skills to HX Outdoors (and I think one other also, but I can't verify that for sure..). So he makes a solid amount of the HX Outdoor line of knife products as is...He's even stated that's true on his instagram page on a handful of occasions....so I'm fine with the fact that I went out and bought an HX Outdoors knife from a different seller when I saw that they were posting a "Rike" knife here on MD that was the equivalent model as the HX Outdoors one that I ended up ordering...thing is though, MD's pictures (like, ALL of the pictures, not just one or two slip-ups) were of the HX Outdoor knife...yet it was priced at the same price as the Rike, and it said - in the title/description/checkout/everywhere you could find a brand name listed - "Rike _______"....so it's Massdrop that's doing the false advertising of (specifically from what I've noticed) Rike knives, whether it be the materials in the knife build, the origin, all the way down to the literal knife itself being entirely different and not even coming with "Rike" written anywhere on it except for the receipt...so it's just fucking ridiculous..because I've seen it with other knives too, where it's just a certain knife but made with a slightly different steel or other materials used in the actual official knife you'd find elsewhere, or whatever the case may be...but I see it solely within the Knives community...so you just gotta do your due diligence and be thoroughly prepared to search the internet whenever they post something in the Knives community that seems too good to be true. Because fact of the matter is, it most likely isn't true. So they just have to do something about it...bc *this* Rike knife last time around was considerably more expensive, and as I've mentioned before, I know this because Rike knives have been out of my price range on every occasion when they've dropped on this site....but then this one just so happened to fall within my budget...it's one of those simple things that I would have certainly remembered...I have notifications/reminders set up for all of their products that are on MD, I check to see if they are available for cheaper elsewhere online, etc....so I'm just saying that Massdrop is shady about this shit. It's not Rike/HX Outdoors...they're very open + transparent about the fact that HX Outdoors knives are manufactured by Rike Knives....so MD should be too...

I'm tempted every time this knife drops but there also seems to be quality issues every time. Such a shame, my hummingbird is awesome

Got mine today. Needed some tweaking to the pivot to dial the centering in. Also I'm a little annoyed that the bottom screw is loctited shut. Any suggestions on how to loosen the loctite? Ive heard a hair dryer works well. I've also heard that a soldering iron will get the job done.

Thread locking compound comes in a variety of formulations, each is overcome by a specific amount of torque. The compound should be chosen to be suitable for the fastener. When well chosen, the amount of torque necessary to break the compound is less than the amount that would mash up the head of the fastener... You shouldn't need to apply heat to break the compound.
The point of thread locking compound is not to permanently fix the fastener in place, but to stop it from coming loose through vibration during normal use.

Oh I'm well aware, I typically use blue myself. The red formulation (going by Loctite's coloration standards) is usually referred to as permanent. In the case of it's use, heat absolutely loosens the compound.
I was incorrect about that the type of thread locker by the way. I was eventually able to get it loose and clean the whole thing out, without resorting to additional heat.

Self taught anodizing so I know anyone can do it; blue is very easy to achieve; plenty of tutorials on youtube and some materials gathering but it's very affordable. 3x 9volt batteries chained together will give you a blue akin to the blue found on a ZT0393. I bought a "working finish" pocket clip from DLT trading and anodized it myself; which was $20 cheaper than buying a pre-anodized clip. It has some wear but the color matches near perfectly.

I bought the Rike 1507 on a prior offering and was anxiously awaiting to receive it in the mail as I had my on the knife for a while but thought it was to high priced. The knife is well built, fit and finish was great, great materials but it will not deploy. It literally takes a pair of pliers to pull open the blade because of the detent is so tight the flipper tab is useless. I have disassembled the knife, cleaned, oiled, etc. but it did not have any affect on the problem. I thought about tying to modify it myself but have been reluctant as I am no pro and I don't want to essentially screw up to a point where I have ruined the knife.

I agree it should open at least as well as the mask drop falcon. Especially at the price

If you put any pressure on the lockbar while trying to deploy the knife it will not come out, the way I end up holding the knife most times is pinky and ring finger on the pocket clip and my middle finger on the handle just off the lockbar. When I first got my knife I naturally held it this way the first couple flips then later was trying to deploy it and was pressing the lockbar in and it would not come out at all. I've never had any issues with my knife but it's probably worth mentioning, I've owned this knife for a roughly 2 years and paid $300 for it, I bought mine before any were ever sold on Massdrop, from other comments seems like there are more issues with the Massdrop sold ones.

Looks really frisky, Rike does masterful anodizing too. Definitely worth grabbing one of their pens for the ano alone.
