Nice looking knife and well-balanced but the open assist is not as strong as i would like.

A lot of people had sharpness issues with theirs, mine was wicked sharp out of the box. Blade IS very thick though, so not great for delicate stuff. I use it for utility stuff in my restaurant so it's not so much an issue for me. Mechanism is smooth as ever to open and close. I love how heavy it is. but I don't do well with light delicate things. CONS: the edges of the metal were needlessly sharp out of the box. just needed like 5 seconds of sandpaper to take it down a notch. the clip kept catching on stuff and I eventually just took it off. it shipped way later than it was supposed to, but customer service was super direct and informative once I contacted them.

As an industrial designer, I can appreciate the unique design of this piece. It is well built, stunning to look at, and I love the pivot. But, it has some real flaws if its intended use is EDC. Obviously, this is subjective, not everyone will have an issue with some of these items.
  1. The weight - this thing is substantial, which is cool, but not in my pocket.
  2. The shape - interesting, but not sleek. Getting it in and out of your pocket can be a chore.
  3. The clip - mine bowed pretty quickly, now there is a small gap between the end of the clip and the case. Resulting in occasional rattle when it gets tapped.
  4. Biggest issue for me is the blade. I like the shape, but it's just too thick. Not to mention, it needed some real sharpening right out of the box.
I do like the knife overall, but I won't be carrying it around. Probably keep it in a case in my tool box.

I found the blade a bit too thick for cutting anything substantial, and it was a little less sharp than I would like. The tip of the blade was dull and wasn't really a point at all, which is a shame because the whole design of a tanto blade is to be good at stabbing. The flipper, however worked well for me, as more of the weight of the knife is in the handle rather than the blade. It also is sturdily constructed, and it felt good in my hand. I didn't have any issue with sharp edges on the handle as well. Overall, not a bad knife, but it seems impractical for an EDC. It works, but there are plenty of knives that would work better. A little more style than substance. But if you're okay with a hefty stylish knife, go for it 👍

Small heavy knife. Very pretty, but awkward and uncomfortable to hold for my bigger hands. Its all hard edges and sharp corners so it wasn't very satisfying to use. The blade quality was also a bit disappointing as it needed to be sharpened right out of the box.

Very nice, well built knife, is bigger and heavier than i would have thought. But for jeans and clipping to inside of pocket not to bad, just don't try to dig anything out of pocket. but for price GREAT Knife.

Well made, just too big and heavy.
Verified Purchaser
This thing is terrific. Mine had zero issues opening up smoothly and it's easy to hold (albeit heavy) once open.

This knife is awesome.. A great weight: a little heft, a tad larger than expected, but still fits beautifully in my hand, and perhaps the shiniest blade i have ever seen. My only issue is that it was supposed to ship oct 12 and i had to contact Massdrop customer support nov 7 just to get it shipped.

It's a gorgeous knife, you get alot bang for your buck on this one.
Verified Purchaser
Love the look and feel of this knife.
Verified Purchaser
Love this knife. The one caveat, is that it is too heavy for EDC.
Verified Purchaser
Pretty much as expected. Doesn't feel remarkably high quality and the design is IMO a bit obtuse, but it's unique, obviously, and the steel seems totally fine. Overall a solid purchase for the price.

3 starts for the cool factor, other than that is not very practical. My unit wasn't sharp when I received it and is not comfortable to use at all. I cut myself with the top edge on the handle I dont know if mine was defective or is supposed to be that sharp on the handle.

Mine too. I was thinking of using a dremel tool with fine sand grit. May I asked what you used?

this is certainly a serviceable knife although the flipper isnt one of the best things about it, to open it in one swing you got to flick it upwards when using the flipper otherwise it flops halfway open, this knife is aesthetic over function, it could be used as edc but there are better options for the price range
Verified Purchaser
It is a beautiful and sharp knife!
Verified Purchaser
very good
Verified Purchaser
it gets 3 stars cause its cool looking, the downsides are its a little stiff to flip open without a wrist flick, and its not comfortable to use. other than that its a decent knife, just not really that good for actual use aside from opening mail.

Beautiful design and craftsmanship, I've already placed an order for another in the next drop. Highly recommend this knife, great for EDC or keeping at a work station.
Verified Purchaser
It is the best knife in my collection and has quickly became my go-to knife. The look is sharp, it is comfortable to hold after finding a good grip. And the balance and weight is spot on and just feels right to hold. Even like the fact that it is more concealable then your usual knife with it's high clip making the knife fit lower in your pocket.

The handle's a little sharp around the edges but the blade is beautiful and it's all well made.

This feels good in my hand, looks great, and works better.

I love this knife. It cuts wonderfully, has a good weight to it, and looks awesome. That said, I would not EDC this blade. The edges of the handle can be a bit crisp, and the weight will drag on most pockets. As a blade I keep around the house it is fantastic. While not for everyone, I can still recommend for most people.

This is a very well executed knife. Fairly easy to open with a little practice. The finishing of the knife is beautiful!

Good looks, I purchased it to compliment my CRKT Nirke Tighe 2. The 2nd is always in my pocket, this one is on display...

Great, handy little pocket knife!

The blade design is great, but the handle is so uncomfortable as to render the knife useless. It is not worth having.
