I just thought I would add this on here as no one mentioned it as of yet. The flipper tab is very small and has no traction/ jimping, which makes it rather difficult to deploy at times. Your finger wants to slip off. Gloves or hands are damp, forget about it. I understand you could do it yourself but with so many knives out there, you would think we would have got the basics down by now. You need some form of traction on smaller flipper tabs. I know it was a deal breaker for me again just my opinion. Hope this helps someone avoid a disappointment. Thanks.

My observation also... otherwise a great knife for the money.
I was able to purchase the carbon fiber for $88.38 delivered from Smoky Moutain....that's about $25 less. Something made me look and I am glad I did. Sometimes I buy from Massdrop if the price is within a few dollars but not this much, I was very disappointed because it shows you absolutely have to check them out.
This one, or the Bestech drop going on right now? This one looks nicer, but I like the window breaker/lanyard loop-thingy that the Bestech has. both the same type of handle.

I went with the Bestech Lion based on the reviews & comments.
Looks a lot like the pivot on CH knives.

Ha, that was my mistake. It happens often enough around here that I just assumed that's what you were doing.
And you're right, it does fit CH's aesthetic in pivots.
MaxwellDemonic
I figured. I own knives from many countries. The pivots on the CH knives are very roughly detailed but almost identical. If Artisan Cutlery knives are made by CH I trust the quality. I will snap a close up of a CH pivot when I get home.
When are these getting mailed out and about when should we expect them to arrive?
$47 on whitemountain knives.

Scratch that, just found the other colors!

Great seller, great service at WMK.
Isn’t this on BladeHQ right now for $104 (cf version) ?
Anyone know where they’re made? I couldn’t find that info on their website.

China.

Hmmm...Still, shouldn’t everyone own a knife that will “slice through water...easily”?
Artisan does not skeletonize their liners. Not sure why this technology isn't being used as everyone else was doing it 4-5 years ago. Real shame as I like the design. No need for this knife to weight 4.1 oz
TrailBlazer
You are correct, this knife should totally be skeletonized
"Featuring an aerodynamic drop-point blade" Hey, MASSDROP, you really ought to get some folks who are true knife guys to write your descriptions. That is one of the silliest things I have ever heard said about a knife and that is how you began the description of this knife. First it is called a "shark" and last time I checked they don't fly. Also, folding knives are meant to be held in the hand and used that way, no need for them to be aerodynamic to be functional.
Now that that silliness is tot of the way, that seems like a fairly decent knife... very stabby.

Yep. If it's going to cut through water, as advertised, it should be _hydrodynamic_! :-)

Sharks do fly! I saw them fly on Sharknado!

Really unhappy with this knife. I was looking forward to purchasing from a new company. I received the knife today and noticed immediatly the blade is bent. I haven’t sharpened it or anything, my stone was out so I used it as a prop to keep the knife flush for the photo. You can clearly see the blade is bent. I have purchased numerous, numerous knives through mass drop and this is the first knife that I want to return for a refund.

Yeah I should have done that, you’re right. Now I’m dealing with a new nightmare, I ordered the kizer alter ego and I got a lock pick set instead

Don't worry, they will get you sorted out. They will pay to return the lockpicks unless they decide you can keep them, which would be cool. Hopefully they'll send the knife at the same time.
Carbon Fiber version does use S35VN. Please excuse the miss-communication! It will be updated when it runs again. @hgoor @DougFLA123 @Yooyoo @JKreese @smallbit
Soooo...... $44-90 on whitemountainknives with LTK coupon code, $60-115 here? Hmmmm.... Decisions, decisions 🙄
Out of Orange? Ha-just saved $60!
The carbon version does look cool and seems to be S35VN? https://youtu.be/xkFcFKj8UYE

I think he's annoying as f**k. And he takes a 3 minute review and turns it into 20+ minutes (his review on the same product with different colored G10 scales). But what do I know, I don't have a BoobTube channel or "followers"! LOL!
48thRonin2
Just be glad he's not NutNFancy, that dude can blather on for 50+ minutes about a fucking fanny pack...
The camo version has a different pivot screw it seems? And how am I going to adjust the others ones when needed? It has a proprietary screw? Thoughts anyone?
hgoor
Actually, I am wrong, although I have confirmed that a phillips head screwdriver will adjust the pivot.
Mordhaus
Oh that makes no sense at all: the presentation side is on the pocket clip side with all the other variations except this one? Why....
call it whatever you want, but this is going to scare non-knife people for sure.
i really want one though lol.

People who don't even know what a firearm is know "AR-15 Assault Weapon" it's part of the 24/7 drivel from all of the news feeds. "I don't know what it is, but people shouldn't have them." "Baaaah!" "Baaaah!" "Baaad!"

so i have no proof of this, but here is my take on most anti-gun people who dont know what firearms are: they watch an NRA video and instantly associate NRA's completely non-sensical bats**** crazy videos with morons.
plus the NRA doesn't want 'good gun laws' they want fear in both the pro-gun and anti-gun groups. they get a cut of pretty much EVERY gun sold in USA, so their strategy is: freak out anti-gun people to be more anti-gun, freak out pro-gun people into thinking the anti-gun people are going to 'take away their guns.' guns get sold, NRA makes more money, pretty much no effective gun laws are passed (theres been like 3 in the last 2 presidents, obama's were pretty much ineffective, trump's banned bump stocks)
then the NRA spends all that money to influence legislation, and block any attempt at gun violence reasearch (just look at the CDC, NHI and other organizations that try to get funding on gun violence), why would they want this? with good resesarch comes knowledge. with knowledge comes ineffective rhetoric, which is what makes the NRA tons of money. NRA does not care about gun laws, gun violence, or the pro-gun groups, they only want $$$
btw, i'm both pro-gun and pro-gun control (system needs an overhaul), am well aware there are really good gun organizations. I only point out the NRA because they are the loudest and by far the most public gun organization out there (and also the richest, and does the most damage to the image of gun owners)
Don't forget the aerodynamic blade. Are other sellers including that???
JacksonKnives
Wind tunnel tested for highest wielding efficiency. Lol
You don't come across this often but this knife has and does sell for $15 less in the open market.
What kind of wear is geed wear?
Jbar
They meant weed gear, mon. (Bob Marley playing in background.)
I wish Massdrop would include model numbers on the knives they try to sell. It seems like 99 percent of the time there is no mention of the knifes model number.
This looks pretty outstanding for those who like a kwaiken format and longer blades, do any of us have hands-on experience with these? What's their build quality like, how's the action and lockup?

Good list - I have the Metamorph and had an Endura - the only issue I have with my Metamorph is that it could use a deep carry clip. If there was one available, I'd say it was the perfect budget gentleman knife

$55 for 2 small pieces of carbon fiber?

As always Massdrop is so f***** up with their descriptions! The carbon fiber model seems to have S35VN? http://www.artisancutlery.net/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=199
If someone just could confirm that?
hgoor
I believe it does, which is why if you pick that model it costs $55 more.
