New Community Mega Thread: Blades

One of the most frequent requests in the Everyday Carry community is to separate knives into its own community. There are many people who would love to see only blades, and many others who could do without them. So, after fielding all of these requests, we’ve decided to give knives and related items a dedicated living space: the Blades Community.
Starting Wednesday March 1st, the Blades Community will be home to all the knives you’re used to seeing in Everyday Carry—including just about any (legal) type of blade the community really wants to see. From productions and midtechs, to customs, cutlery, hatchets, and machetes, the Blades Community will be the destination for all things knife.
If you’re subscribed to Everyday Carry you’ll automatically be subscribed to Blades. You can unsubscribe at any time after the Blades Community goes live, but for the first couple of weeks knives and other edged tools will still show up in Everyday Carry while we transition.
In the meantime, let’s use this place to discuss some blades. What’s your favorite? What do you want to see next? Cast your votes in the polls and feel free to create more ( so that we can help you discover the best products around. We’ll move all the relevant polls once the community is launched.
In the meantime, we’ll be hanging out here, and we look forward to hearing what you’d like to see. So stay tuned until the Blades Community launches on March 1st!

I'd like to see a PM2 in LC200N.

I keep looking at the Caribbean.

I'd like to see a Spyderco Harpy C08CFP in a plain edge with LC200 blade OR Spyderco C116CFP SuperHawk Carbon Fiber Hawbill Knife in a PLAIN EDGE for both. They are both discontinued and would be in high demand by the community. The small supply available usually sell for $300 in VG10. Over priced for average level materials.

I haven't been getting any responses to my questions about ESEE drops. What's the deal?
I'll try again.
Will there be another ESEE 4 or maybe an ESEE Laser Strike drop? If so, any estimate on when?
Jun 11, 2018
So, the ESEE 4 drop finally opened.
Confoundingly, the only choice I wanted (and obviously the most popular choice, considering it's 1095 steel) sold out after only four people had joined the drop.
What happened? How can the black coating plain edge knife only have four or fewer available?
I've been waiting months for this drop to use a coupon that took me years to earn, and now it's not gonna happen. I'm pretty gutted.
Jun 12, 2018
Well, what's the word on the ESEE Laser Strike?
I'd be just as happy with that knife...and since they only make that one with the coating (seriously...who doesn't want coating on 1095?), I can be confident in getting what I'm after.

SERRATION! What's the deal here? I see hundreds of fine knives, EDC knives, Tacticals, a favorite) or fully serrated. Ever tried to cut rope with a smooth edge blade, then a serrated one? I've cut 1/2" thick sisal rope with a new serrated Spyderco knife simply by tossing the rope in the air, and swiping at it with the knife. Do THAT with a smooth edge! I've EDC'ed a knife, since 1969. I have thousands of experiences from my Special Effects days (25 years, Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner)) and on-set supervision (19 years at the top), plus my Product Design and master craftsmanship practices. I KNOW utility and design. The half serrated Tanto blade serves me best. YMMV, naturally. Short chisel-like tip edge, longer smooth straight edge, and short serrated section for fibrous cutting tasks. The lack of any serrated options here lead me to believe that this is a group of inexperienced newbies, or fashion shipsters. Prove me wrong, I beg you!

You CAN with the right tools but it really is a bitch to do and depends on the serrations. The veff serrations are pretty good so i have heard, and some CRKT's have it
Mar 14, 2019
Interesting. However, the largest rope I ever cut cuts fine with a sharp plain blade, I'm not about to carry a half-saw knife in case I ever have to cut rope. So I find serrations only annoying, reducing the blade I actually use by half. I agree totally on the Tanto blade, but hate serration. I cut boxes, wood, tape, sandpaper, fruit etc etc etc, but not being a sailor nor grip, don't deal with rope much. Wire rope or paracord is about it, straight edge goes through twine or wire rope fine, wire rope, I have tools for that.

I would love to see an EDC for foodies, something intended for slicing, particularly the Spydiechef, which does not need to be dried or oiled after washing (possible contamination). Maybe Massdrop Made could swing a deal, a similar design with G10, or FRN handle to lighten it up in the pocket and pocket book?
May 9, 2018
I have looked at the Alistar Phillips upcoming Spyderco, I thought you were letting me know Massdrop was going to have their version as well, sorry I didn't read a bit more carefully.

thanks for the heads up!

Hey guys, i'm looking for a wood handled folding knife, planning to carry it around majority of the time. Was looking at the Maserin FLY 383 and the Spyderco C11WDP Delica. New to this so any recommendations would be great.
Mar 29, 2018
Have you looked up reviews for opniel they are great. Otherwise towards the higher end, I would recommend the Fallkniven u1 although that is a slip joint (non locking).
Mar 29, 2018
Thanks for the recommendations, looking for a frame lock. Ordering the Delica after graduation haha.

Why can't the knives be delivered to Switzerland? We have one of the most liberal knives laws of europe.

Completely surprised by the lack of blade diversity here on Drop...
I’ve been a collector of Blades since before my teens, and a retailer coming up on 15… or maybe 20 years. Drop has really been kind of an interesting experience for me, because I do occasionally get to see some unusual tech and sometimes EDC items that otherwise I might not have been aware of. And maybe it’s because I have a deep love of cutlery and bladed weapons, but I find myself trolling through the site looking at it what’s available; and it’s just it’s pretty much the same. And the bladed community here is just always confused me.. every single knife is about the same, they’re almost all drop points and although the handle materials change and brands change.. it’s really just the same knife over and over and over again... occasionally you’ll see a tanto or a slight variant; but rarely… and almost never a serrated blade. And I’m just deeply amazed at this diversion of serrated blades. And I’m just surprised there isn’t more of a request for diversity here.... and I...

Can we get Sony E-Mount or other mirrorless camera options please..
Would be nice to see some Sony E mount full frame cameras on here. I currently shoot with a A99 and they killed the lense path for better or more option lenses and now is all E-Mount. 🤔

There Are Pandas, and Then There Are Pandas.
And this isn't either of them! The Pandas we're talking about here, are watches, not bears. And what got me thinking about them (again) was a link posted this morning by @cm.rook who pointed a few of us to the very attractive (and not terribly priced) Yema "Rallygraph" Panda which, in it's most traditional arrangement, looks like the one on the left, but can also be had in the version on the right: The model on the left is a true Panda, while the model on the right is called a reverse Panda. The reason for that distinction is clear--Panda bears, only come in the first arrangement. Now at this point, everyone should be thinking about the most well-know Panda, The Rolex Panda, which is actually a Daytona, and among Rolex Daytonas, the most famous of which is the Paul Newman Daytona, which was famous first, because it was Paul's, and second because it sold at auction for $17.8 million (US Dollars). The story of that auction is well-known so I'll only...
