Bought a second one of these to give to a friend. I have purchased several of the value line D2 steel Bestech knives and the Warwolf seemed to be the best of the bunch. I like the swordfish more in terms of blade shape and bought 2 of them that were very nice, but the Warwolf in terms of fit and finish was better. The thick and heavily contoured G10 scales are the best part of the knife, it feels very comfortable. The knives really fills out in your hand due to the overall thickness, it feels substantial in a good way.
Is it me or does the beige look green

In the picture, yes it does show alot of green component to the overall color on the so called "beige". However I highly doubt it does in person. I own several other Bestech knives with the beige/tan G10 and there is no hue of green to the coloring. I have no clue what they did with the lighting to make it show this way. I must admit though I wish that beige with a bit of green hue was an available color though.
Bestech and Massdrop need to stop. I can’t keep buying OD Green knives, but I also can’t stop buying OD Green knives! Every Bestech knife I have gotten through Massdrop has been top notch.
To anyone joining this drop: make sure you get your zipper pouch!
Today's $40 Bestech of the Day. "G10" scales, "D2" steel. 3.x inches long. Seems like endless iterations. My Kendo is sharp enough, but has an awful detent. OK for the price, but I don't have the urge to ever buy another Bestech. Though If I did, I could own another 3 or 4 per week!

I agree on the Kendo detent, mine was awful. This one was worlds better though, waaaay beefier. Only real complaint was that the heel needs to be taken down to not get yourself through the spine of the handle. Hard to complain too much at these prices for this quality though! But if I had to pick just one, yeah, I'd trade the Kendo out for the Warwolf in a heartbeat
Fairly dull out of the box, which is unfortunate because D2 is notoriously difficult to sharpen. The pivot is also rather gritty. I would be mildly upset if I had paid $10 more. Don't get me wrong, it's not a "Z-Hunter", but there are lots and lots and lots of much better knives available at this price point.
Received the knife. But not the zipper pouch that says is included.

I didn't get a pouch either, but I didn't notice that I was supposed to get one.
Any of you didn't like the knife? Wasn't it too thick on the handle?
You can get this knife on Amazon for $38 with two day shipping https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0779NBKC7/

Haha now there are none available at that price.

Yeah, not surprised lol they're usually right around $52 for most g10 bestechs on Amazon. But you most likely just saved 2 other MD users a few bucks haha
I got the bestech tanto blade on my last drop. I loved the smooth action with the ceramic bearings. I wasn't sure how I would like the straight handle but it h as s become one of my favorites for EDC. I am hoping this one impresses as well. So far great quality for the price.

Sounds like the kendo which i have also and was impressed as well for the price point. I also have the scimitar which im digging. Its in my pocket now. I like these two models enough that ive joined about 5 other bestech drops. At $40 shipped or less w md i can live w any small issues but so far ive been impressed only having to tighten the pocket clip tension to my liking as they feel loose to me out the box and im afraid i might lose the knife otherwise. The contoured g10 handles are my fav and I think it would be hard pressed to find more knife for the money at these drop prices!
I've heard a lot of good things about Bestech. What can I say? Pics looks nice, I like the style...so I'm in this drop!
Hope it reaches the 30 minimum to get the drop down to $40.
All the Best eh ;)
Zippered pouch still listed in the description....if it doesn't come with, be sure to bring it up with support when it arrives until they update it. They've been told and have had to issue partial refunds months ago, you'd think they would've made the update as soon as they lost $15 on a $40 sale the first time 🙄 (sorry MD, but i tried multiple times to tell you about this issue before)
Also, a reminder to the new buyers, check my review regarding a safety concern with the heel of the blade when closed. I love the knife, and still recommend it, but that issue needs to be addressed if yours is the same
Just received mine today (took a while for it to arrive Canada). Simple package, blade in clear plastic wrap inside box, there's no zippered pouch.
Though the images did not show the zippered pouch but it was listed under the specs section, so that's misleading as some of the buyer said and it should be corrected.
Quality wise is a solid blade, it flips smoothly and the blade is dead center, fit and finish is great, sharp as a razor.
The price is about right for a D2+G10 flipper, the fit and finish is must better then most of the competition.
Just received mine, late as did most I assume. Nice knife, but as expected the listed zippered pouch was not included. Just a plain Jane box. Why put something in the listing if your not actually going to ship it? Seems massdrop needs to clean up their game a bit.

I have a feeling / wonder he over tightened the screws and stripped them.
Benzo
I can't imagine why threads would strip on their own on bolts that are in a solid, non moving, static location... So, yeah, you're probably right lol
Hmmm....certain details on page still haven't been changed..... Just a hint, to any who join, check the end of my review 😉
Handle is THICC!
I just received my knife today. I'm impressed!
It’s a good price for a decent knife, even if Chinese-made.

Agree on price. The thing with tool steels and knives, though, isn’t so much the source or variation of the particular steel (although that does matter, e.g., ESR D2) as it is the heat treatment, which is absolutely critical. As a mass production knife from China, who knows? It’s attractive, though, and I like D2, and I like G10.

I'm no metallurgist, but i've put a couple bestech Knives through their paces on various woods and cardboard duty. Haven't had any complaints yet on their ability to hold an edge. And the build quality is leaps and bounds ahead of anything else I've ever owned anywhere near this price (better than a few I've owned at twice this price even)
At this price point I'd recommend giving them a try, it's well worth the risk to judge in person
Been looking for a solid budget knife, and after reviews, I'm definitely in on this one! I don't have any knives with G-10, looking forward to handling it in person
I've bought all of these Bestech knives, and for me. This is my favorite one! I got this in black last time. I may order a beige one this time. But, on my screen here. The beige one, looks green. Can anyone here confirm the look, of the beige option?
SteveMidwest
Previous comments indicate the beige on this one is more of a light olive green, if you scroll down a bit
Kavik
Thank you. I'll look a little deeper. I have seen them (Beige) looking like this picture, I'll post here. It looks beige to me. But like you've found others say. This Massdrop one, looks to be a light olive green.
The Bestech Swordfish, black/beige. Was indeed beige.

Damn, 3 G10 Bestech drops right in a row.... Wallet is getting no break here lol
Yay, another full size Bestech! Other knives haven’t felt the same since I got the Rhino in my hands.
Beautifull knife, sadly not a lety clip option.
My only disappointment with the knife is that it was supposed to come with a case and mine did not. It simply came in a little cardboard box. Did everyone else’s come that way too or did some come with a zippered Case/pouch as the drop had said it would?

No knife pouch as stated on the product page. :-(
A very nice flipper for the money. I'm not generally big on liner locks, but I like almost everything else about it. It arrived sharp, but I was able to make a noticeable improvement with a couple minutes on a worksharp. That said, the knife is now as keen as I could ever want. I really like the shape. It's a lot sleeker than the Lion and the blade looks longer as a result. It feels pretty stiff to open, but I think that it will loosen a bit with time. For now a little bit of lubricant should get the job done.

Did it break in after use?
bookworm13
Not exactly. The action is smooth once it starts to open, but getting it to open with the flipper takes an uncomfortable amount of force, for me at least. Maybe to make sure it doesn't open in your pocket, but I like the lower stiffness of the lion and scimitar more. If it is a safety feature, as I believe, I can understand it. But I wish it was just a little bit easier. It kinda starts to hurt my index finger after a while.
Got mine today, it's great. I haven't handled a Bestech G10 that I didn't love. My only gripe is that even if you push the liner lock all the way over, the detent ball still touches the blade, so it doesn't smoothly drop shut. I'm sure it will break in over time. Regardless, I recommend the knife.
awk
It will get a little smoother. But, all detent balls, still touch the blade when closing. After you have let go of the lock-bar/liner-lock. Otherwise, your finger would get nicked. : - )
