So... When was this thing supposed to ship? It was saying middle of October and now we're getting in to November...
Will this drop be shipping anytime soon? Or are you going to cancel it as is tradition?
PSA: The blue colorway is availalable on Amazon for $37.47 with free Prime Same-Day delivery.
The reason I purchased this knife is the visual appeal of the angular symmetry. Previous comments are correct about the 90 degree handle does not fair well holding the piece. The price was low enough for me to purchase this knife for the men in my wedding party. I do not use this as an EDC but it takes a spot on my work desk as an opener. Previous comments state that this is an ugly knife but to each their own, I do not disparage ones opinion. I put much suspect to a knife that opens perfectly out of the box, this one works itself in after some usage. BTW all the guy's in my wedding party loved their gift as a knife.
UGLY.
And that's all I've got to say about that

If I've said it once, I'll say it again, they make this in VG-10 or D2 and I'd buy it immediately.
bought this in May, still hasn't shipped and says expected to ship in November. you want this knife in any kind of hurry buy it somewhere else..
very sharp and beautiful product would definitely suggest to anyone who wants a solid knife
great knife but needs more attention before delivery. I sliced my thumb a good half inch across on the corner of the body metal after sticking my hand into my pocket. Had to sand down the edges of the metal myself. Otherwise great knife.

Yea, that was the one thing I noticed first touch. I haven't touched it since, but I will. I wanna hit those edges with a dremel with one those Afro lookin sand/buff wheel/brush lookin things, the softest grit one should be perfect. Other than that it is a beautifully unique knife. Flip function is a little tight but that will smooth itself out in time. Sorry bout your thumb my friend. Scars that build character don't always happen in battle. > Sounds good don't it, lmao!

Nice knife but the edges on the handle are a bit sharp. Nothing a dremel and a buffing tip can't handle. Other than that it a very unique little flipper.
BEE-U-TEE-FULL !
Just recieved it. Love this knife. I paid same here as Amazon, so no biggy (of course cudda had it sooner :) ). And yea, NOT an EDC but it IS a splendid hunk'o metal !
If you're Canadian you can get this cheaper (at least including shipping) elsewhere. Try Amazon.ca it's even on sale right now. That's where i got it. https://www.amazon.ca/Columbia-River-Knife-Tool-2392/dp/B00TACNIMQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1521742762&sr=8-1&keywords=crkt+deviation
This same knife sells for $37.95 at Walmart. https://www.walmart.com/ip/DEVIATION/44678624

13$ to Germany while the WE Falcon is only 3.65$, how come? Then follows tax and VAT because MD must/has to/wants to/enjoys to declare the correct value.
Anything ordered from China is declared as gift under 20$, no need to even mention it to the seller. MD functions as an extended arm of the IRS.
Value created is entirely outside of USA or Germany (except the postal domestic transport maybe), why must we donate from already taxed income to the governments?!
Jinjok
Massdrop is doing the right thing by declaring the proper value. Why would you expect them to try and circumvent tax laws in the country they reside in?
CRKT Deviation: For the time when you're cast as an extra in Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and have to open a package on screen
When I received mine, I was surprised by two things, first, the mirror polish on part of the blade, which I'd rather be on the center than the edge so the aesthetics last, and more importantly, not only was the grip less sharp than I expected, it fit the hand a lot better than I expected.
I have never been a huge CRKT fan by any means, but this is actually a solid flipper style knife. There is enough retention that it is not easily opened, and the blade is heavy enough to be opened without needing to flick your wrist for assistance. A solid knife in my opinion that you can't beat for the price.
Who in their right mind would pay 70 bucks for 8cr?

In a knife like this it's not about function or material quality but aesthetic. People buy it because it looks unique and interesting. I agree the materials are kinda shoddy, but CRKT is known to cut corners to make interesting designs affordable.
In other words they're known for taking good designs and making them crappy xD
Cracktower
but thats only the msrp places like bladehq will sell it for less than that. so not many people will spend 70 bucks on this knife.
I am aware that everyone has different taste, however this knife looks like one of those fantasy knives. Not in my wheel house. CRKT does make some outstanding knives though. Their Jeff Park Crossbones is a beautiful design, both appearance and function, IMHO.

OK... Perhaps I am being a bit harsh... But I am one who thinks, and, therefore, owns, a ZT 0801...., And, I think is awesome looking. I also own a Kizer Ki401B1, which is also ‘beautiful’!! So, this ‘Deviation’ is simply not my style. I hope I didn’t offend anyone by my comment, just expressing my range of ‘taste’.
AJAugust
You're not wrong. To each their own, but this is incredibly ugly.
It looks like it should transform into an Autobot.
I have this knife. If you're looking for an edc you already know you can find better knives to do the job, don't act like you thought this was a good EDC knife. This is a very pretty knife, I use it to open letters and to stand it on my desk. That's really all, and it was worth it for me but it may not be worth that for you.
michael_are
I came here to write this. It sits on my desk, waiting to help me open letters and the occasional package. At that, it excells. I also like the unconventional look. To each, his own. As others have said, the non-cutting side of the blade is surprisingly sharp. All in all, this isn't a knife I'd use for every day carry, but for a letter opener and eye catching thing, it's fills the bill.
This is not a good every day use knife. I bought one on Amazon last time there was a drop, and I was thoroughly disappointed. The edges of the handle are too sharp to use comfortably, the detent on the knife is laughably weak, and the blade may just come more dull than the edges of the handle. Do yourselves a favor and stay away from this one. Use the money you would put into this knife on a better knife.

Barely any argument there. Also, if you want more options in the exact price point of $35 and lower, look at an Ontario RAT model 1 or 2, or pretty much anything out of the Spyderco Byrd line.

I don't think you're making a fair comparison here. You're judging this knife by it's usefulness as an EDC, which clearly isn't what it was designed for.
I'll bet your favorite EDC doesn't look anywhere near as striking as this design. Does that mean yours is an inferior knife?
It's a ripoff, buy it on amazon for a lower price than the lowest price with free shipping. You guys really disappointed me massdrop... :(
"Shipping & Handling $21.50", seriously?? :-(

Wow $13 is really cheap shipping! ~$22 is actually perfectly reasonable to ship from the US to Europe
SlowCousinPete
Haha, could be cheaper ;-) Around the $13 is reasonable I think. For smaller and lighter items, like knives, it's what a freight carrier (i.e. USPS) asks for it. Some other drops will ship for as low as $5. Generally speaking shippingcosts between 4 and 13 US dollars would be fine, I think. Some products has ridiculously expensive shipping costs, that's a deal breaker most of the time.
Very square edges on the handle scales it is like holding a sharp piece of metal and not talking about the blade, so it makes it difficult and painful if you have to use it for more than a few seconds not very comfortable at all it does look cool though and that is about it.

I actually found a CRKT Eros SS for $20 on Amazon. The listing said the packaging might be damaged, but even that didn't end up being true. It's not a counterfeit either that I can detect, I checked that immediately. It's held up to a month of use already
SlowCousinPete
Its a pretty good knife! Its just waaaay too small for my hands lol
Is this a joke? It's $32 on Amazon with Prime. Laughable!
was about to buy it but 22$ shipping is a little hefty.. adds more than 50% of asking value.
