Product Description
Just like the bird it’s named for, the Hummingbird Mini Flipper from Rike Knife is small, agile, and beautiful. Measuring just 3.75 inches overall, it’s not exactly a workhorse, but that’s not the point Read More

Straight out of a Chinese factory, which is why you just buy knives straight from China. $75ea is gonna line the pockets of Drop very well.

I asked the same, rhetorically. These are Chinese made, but made by Rike....I don't believe you are going to find a gray market / un-branded version for sale anywhere

Loved my little hummingbird. But, it's size means it's also quite easy to misplace. Unfortunately, that's what happened to me. Went camping, and most likely it's on the ground outside somewhere. I'm waiting for the next round, and will definitely be picking up a replacement.

Ordered on 18 November. Here it is 23 December and still have not received it. Not even a shipping notice. So much for for my stocking stuffer idea

How's Rike's Damascus? Anybody know the actual composition? How good is the edge retention and corrosion resistance? If those two attributes are at least on par with S35VN, I think I found my perfect "fear-friendly" knife.

While I don't disagree that modern day "damascus" is a misnomer, i think at this point anyone who knows enough to know there's a difference already knows this, and everyone else has only ever known "damascus" to be pattern welded steel anyway. That said, "Damasteel" is actually a brand name, and this is Damasteel, as @nextcityplanner said. P. S. @TheOmegaCarrot If you're considering this one again during this current drop, no, this isn't going to be on par with S35VN. Per the datasheet for Damasteel's Rose pattern : Damasteel’s stainless Damascus patterned steel is a powder based steel with the two alloys RWL34™ and PMC27™. They are both variations of the martensitic stainless steel 420 type with a minimum of 13 percent chromium content. RWL34 is equivalent to 154CM, which is still a good steel, but many consider it a step below s30v/s35vn for edge retention. I think the bigger issue is the question of how the RWL34 and PMC27 work together....and that depends entirely on the heat treat process used by the manufacturer (which, i don't know if we have that info) According to the datasheet, if they harden it with the goal of keeping the two steels to a similar Hardness, the whole thing ends up a bit soft, at 58 and 56 hrc, respectively. If they push for a higher Hardness, the difference between the two steels can be up to 8 hrc off. Since this is a solid piece, not cladding over a core, that could leave you with an edge that's chippy in some spots, and soft in others. So, hopefully they went for just a little on the softer side overall. I wouldn't want this for a big, hard use blade, but it works fine for something small like this, that doesn't see any serious abuse. It also sharpens easily and polishes very well

I do not own Damasteel, but I have read a lot concerning it. What I have read has been quite favorable.

Will this ship no problem in Canada? Or would border service agency confiscate this?

Yes i bought one felt guilty and gave it to my wife who wears its at work in retail. It is jewelry size and my wife loves it always around her neck for instant access to the knife to cut up boxes or tape. No heavy tasks but thTs reasonable considering the knifes size lol, but ya no issues with the border

The most expensive and smallest knife you will ever accidentally purchase. Makes for a good conversation starter. Me: "You won't believe how dull I am, I paid $80 for this thing without looking at the size of the blade." Female Friends: "LOL it's so cute though!" Male Friends: "Dude you got ripped off."

There actually have been tiny knives on MD that are more expensive. Wanna tiny knife? There is the Spyderco bug line: manbug, ladybug, dragonfly, bug, grasshopper, etc.

New colors are cool, although I miss the old style gradient.
