The blade and action on this knife were very nice. One thing to keep in mind is that the screws on this knife are made of VERY soft steel. I wasn’t able to take apart my knife due to almost stripping out the screws.
Why do this one again and not the Massdrop Urban Trapper??
Still waiting on some explanation as to what the hell a "caged version of IKBS" is. IKBS bearings by design aren't caged, that's the whole point!
The blade grind I got on mine was quite off. Its taken quite a while to wear in. Not a bad knife all said.
I'd love to jump on this, but it isn't steel insert on the lock bar. Looks like an amazing value, and I'm glad to see a trend of EDC smaller knives in super steels under $100.

The titanium lock bar is quite sticky. It has been made a little better with some graphite
This is not a tactical knife by any stretch of the imagination, why paint it black? The FR and the Urban Trapper are classy looking gentleman's knives which don't scare anybody inthe office or lunchroom, why can't we simply get a drop with the upgraded S35VN blades?

These are S35VN, at least I thought they were? Or did you mean like a satin finished blade? its cheaper and quicker to do a coating or a stonewash finish, as a nicely ground satin finish takes time and expertise to make it look nice. Coatings and stonewashing helps to cover the minor defects.

You are correct on both counts, this drop features an S35VN blade, and I would jump on it if there were a satin or polished blade option.
Have any of the issues from the last drop been addressed?

I really don't understand why Massdrop wouldn't address those issues with this drop or before offering this knife again. It sounds like most people got a crap knife for a lot of money. -_-
Love the knife. Bent the hell out the clip sitting in a chair. Anyone know where I can get a new, hopefully stronger, clip?
Does anyone know what the Rockwell hardness for these blades is at? Got mine in, got lucky, it's a nice bit of kit. Like it so much I just bought a marbled cf version for cheap to swap the scales. Gonna look pretty sick. Anyways, curious as to the hardness, might send it off for a mirror edge.

Rockwell hardness for S35VN is 58 - 61 hrc *as per crucible industries (manufacturer) https://www.crucible.com/PDFs%5CDataSheets2010%5CdsS35VNrev12010.pdf

Best guess would have me saying 58-59
I have this knife in vg10. The lock was a little sticky when i first got it, but is perfect now.(took about a month) i really like this knife style. Perfect gentleman's folder.
I got this last time. Very nice knife, nice steel and very sharp. I had no quality problems and carry and use regularly. A+++
Beautiful knife with many complaints... Still worth?

The blade on the Chap is only 2.7", the handle is 3.3".

I love my Rosewood Urban Trapper. Very slim, nearly weightless, looks great and opens very smoothly. It does have the lockbar issue mentioned in the conversation above but it is a light duty slicer.

Haha I can't math. I meant "less than".
From what you said seems like lockbar issues are present in more Boker knives than just this one (though this one seems to have particularly bad reviews). We'll see if I can justify a Boker despite it's potential flaws. Luck of the draw I guess...
