I never got a knife. I waited for an eternity they shipped me a knife it was unable to be delivered so it was Returned to Sender. Massdrop said there are no more knives available so they issued me a refund and apologized. What a BUMMER!!!

I noticed sometimes when this happens it due to customs if you're outside the USA.
So since it seems nobody is in the UK and wants to do an exchange, I'm going to be in the US July 17-Aug 1. I could bring my clip point with me and exchange it with one of you that has a Tanto and wanted a Clip point. Any takers?
If any of you that received a tanto instead of a clip point are in the UK let me know. I wanted the tanto and was sent a clip. I'll gladly trade ya.
I should have known Cold Steel would give us garbage service and garbage knives with how long it was taking. I ordered the clip point and got a tanto as well. Looks like this is a big problem, yet again... Massdrop, you need to get on top of your quality control! It's out of control in a big way. My third bad experience in the last 2 months. Won't be ordering anything for a while...

Two months with constant pressure for a big order would pretty much guarantee failure to some extent on their end. But it ultimately comes down to whoever at Massdrop filled the envelopes with receipts and labels for CLIP POINT knives and stuffed TANTO knives in there with them.. in my example. But on Cold Steel's end.... Mine feels like a $20 Kershaw. Really sticky action and super hard to open and close. For a knife that usually sells a fair bit higher, you'd think they would put in more effort to make it good. My first and final experience with Cold Steel

They've always kinda been like that, takes some time to break them in. I still haven't even received shipping confirmation
I send them the photo (proof) of their bungle and obviously they don't have stock to replace and advise me to return it for a refund. Took them more than 2 months to ship my order and they expect me to trust them with an RMA?! Guess I'm keeping the tanto and dream of the clip point

Well after nearly two months of waiting USPS tracking says package out for delivery and then? undeliverable..Return to Sender.. lovely
I guess you got mine... (info forwarded to massdrop support) "I ordered this knife in April and you sent me the wrong model! I ordered the clip Point and you shipped me the tanto! I am very disappointed. Not only this shipment but prior shipments. I thought would let you guys slide, but I guess that's my fault for not bringing it up. And to think I thought it was a good thing it shipped my birthday weekend, only to have you guys let me down again. Please advise. If I send this back, what kind of shipping time am I looking at for the proper model?" Arcanum: what did they say to you?
Received CSR1 mini today, unfortunately it was not the one I ordered, did anyone else get the wrong blade? I ordered Tanto and got Clip point. Not happy, they had a 50/50 chance of getting it right by putting them in blind.

I wish they'd at least tell us why this is taking so long
CatsCoffee
Agreed!
What's the deal? Still no shipping update?!
9 days and still hasnt shipped....
Any minute now....
Yay! 19 days and still waiting for shipment confirmation.. the suspense!
Looking forward to this! I own the Recon 1 mini Tanto version and it is excellent
Is this really 8oz for an under 3" blade ? Or am I reading the specs wrong?
Bflying
The first weight stated in the specs is the correct one - 3.6 oz.

Ah, that sounds much better. I guess I didn't even see that there were two numbers. Thank you.
I've considered a Recon or Code 4 for some time now. The switch to XHP makes many of the staples in the line look much more attractive. I do have an Ultimate Hunter in XHP, which is a sweet knife. A bit fat for me to pocket edc, but makes for an excellent purpose placed use (like hunting or shooting bag), and/or carry owb or off body.
I just remembered that that I do have a Recon 1 Micro. I think when I ordered it, I was thinking of the Mini Recon specs. So when I received it, I was a bit shocked at the size. But it does make a perfect keychain blade. I think my wife may have it in her purse.
Is the steel really all that similar to 440c?
CatsCoffee
Only in corrosion resistance, it has edge retention similar to D2, it's a great all-round steel.
Spear point not available? I'd buy if available again...any possibility of making more available?
Looks great!
Same price on Woot right now and they have the clip point and spear.
Amazon has the Tanto version for $63 USD right now (Apr 24th) . With Prime shipping, it might be cheaper than MassDrop.

The clip-point is $80: https://camelcamelcamel.com/Cold-Steel-Recon-Point-27TMCC/product/B00U1I95XY
It would appear that prices are somewhat volatile and/or Amazon may be tracking prices on MD.
Why is that the one everyone wants? My subjective impression is you'd have clip-point guys and you'd have tanto guys... but I haven't surveyed. I'm in for the clip point mini.
Choronzon
Already have tanto. Need different one too.
IvanSpendalot
I have the spear point full size... wish it was the drop point!
Someone looking for a single EDC to get it done with, not play with, need look no further. Even knife snobs like this knife. It does everything well. I like the clip point quite a bit, just an all around good blade shape. A pretty solid price here too.

"spear point not available" aka: the popular one everyone wants. so close, but so far!
Mr_West
Woot has the spear point for the same price right now.
How come Singapore is not enabled? This is a folding blade.
