Hello, just wanting to see if I’m the only one really wanting a copper alox Swiss Army knife. They are hard to find and I am hoping for a new run of them in the cadet, lumberjack, or electrician versions.
Anyone else wanting the solid titanium Zippo to be remade?
From what I could find, the model 110 Solid Titanium Zippo was part of their "Pure" and "Precious Metals" line-up from 2001 to 2006, and at the time, retailed for around $100 (think the price of Ti has come down since then, though Chinese outer sleeve replicas still sell for around $120).
Would love to just buy an original from that period, but due to it now being a collectible, they rarely go up for sale, and even used ones seem to sell for at least a few hundred dollars. At the time they were available, I don't recall ever hearing about them.
Was just wondering if this is something others here were interested in, and if so, would it be something that Massdrop could maybe sway Zippo into remaking? I asked Zippo's customer relations if they could possibly suggest reintroducing it in the future (now that Ti has grown in popularity vs 17 years ago), but only got "at this time, we are not aware of this lighter being produced again." Personally think this would slot in nicely under...
Hey Massdrop community,
My name is Shan , with Tepe Designs. I wanted to test the water and see if the community would like to see my design offered via Massdrop. Therefore, I need your help so that the team here can make a sound decision on whether or not to consider this a viable offering. I am working on getting first production done now via Kickstarter, however, I would like to see the Hornet offered to a much larger following. The knife is being made by HE Knives in Guangdong province, (same place as Kizer, WE and Reate etc..). They have 20+ yrs experience and have worked on projects for other manufactures like Kershaw and Buck. Rest assured, they do excellent work and I wouldn't have spent the last 18 months preparing this with them for a poorly made product.
Ultimately, I like to offer up one or more versions of the Hornet as follows:
1. D2 steel / black or orange G-10 handles
2. N690 steel / full Ti handles
I leave it to you all, the Massdrop community, to decide if...

So they call this community Everyday Carry, and one slightly funny thing about this sobriquet is most of us aren't coming here for things we're going to actually carry every day - in fact if you come to EDC, the chances are excellent that you already own one of whatever you come here to look at or buy. Knives, pens, flashlights, timepieces, multitools, tops, doohickeys, whatever it is, you like them so much you didn't need to stop with buying one of them.
Drop knows this of course: they're not only selling you the items, they're selling things like the Valet which are specifically aimed at folks who possess a surfeit of EDC gear and moreover like to mix it up, carrying this one day and that the next as opposed to the exact same loadout every day they roll. Some people find that one item that's just right for them and they stick with it, which means they aren't shopping for another: Drop is selling to the group of people who either aspire to find such an item but haven't, or else...
