I wonder if there are plans to offer the Yaxell Dragon, Red, and Fusion drops again with the newer additions such as the Rocker, Nakiri and boning knives. Anyone got any word?
i got my fusion and want more now, you can go head and do this drop again. i'd really like to see a bread knife.
Any idea when this will drop again? I'm keen to pick up a set.

What is your problem dude. Look at the timestamps before you start randomly abusing people. Honestly you are the worst affiliate of this website.
Saving a screenshot of your comment for later reposting. You just commented on a thread where the last post was 11 weeks ago and not even by me. My last post here was 16 weeks ago which you already put out a long-winded abusive comment for.
Shame on you.

Sorry, you are absolutely right. My fault. Be well
Well damn, had I known Massdrop would suddenly go into the japanese knives market this often, I wouldn't have bought the first pair.
If you would like to ask questions specifically about the Dragon line, feel free to email me at depstein@apogeeculinary.com I am the designer, and also the man who started shun cutlery.

I'm not sure what you mean by reforming the edge. If you mean realigning it, the a regular honing steel is the way To go. If you are looking to resharpen, the stones are better, but only if you know what you are doing. Otherwise we will do free sharpening for life.

Ah, my apologies with the confusion. I suppose I meant to ask if the edges on these knives would need to be sharpened or honed more frequently in one case than the other. Also, I did not realize that you offer lifetime sharpening! That's a fantastic point to consider. Though I may not end up buying these through this drop, I did note that you have products through Amazon, so I very well may end up purchasing a set on there.
Interesting steel. I'd be interested in playing around with/sharpening the knives to understand their edge sharpening/retention capabilities. But that profile is hideous. I guess if you are a classically trained Western chef then the profile might work, but today's more diverse cutting methods precludes such a belly. For this price, better options available.
If anyone got these and needs them sharpened, reach out to me and let me check one out/sharpen it for you. All my sharpening is performed by hand with Japanese water stones, with the exclusion of the very lowest grits (for edge re-profiling/minor chip removal for which I use diamond stones).

The group's bulk order arrived earlier to our warehouse in New Jersey and many of the individual packages have already shipped back out. However, upon taking inventory of everything received, our team was made aware of a backorder affecting a small handful of units. Rest assured, we've reached back out to the vendor to resolve this hiccup and expect to have the remaining units in our warehouse shortly.
Expect another update from us on 9/19 or sooner if something comes up.

This is cheaper not only on Amazon, but also cutleryandmore.com. I love Massdrop, there are some truly unique things on here. But kitchenware does not seem to curate good deals.
I can understand all policies on military knives EDC, etc, but on kitchen knives ? The purpose of this knives is obvious, its like 4th set I cannot buy cause of your shipping policy, or of your curler ? This is little bit ridiculous, its the kitchen knife for god sake !

If you want some premium kitchen knives, hit me up and I will hook you up! (They stay sharp for 20+ years and are made with better material than stainless steel)

Interested in damascus steel ...
63 on the Rockwell hardness scale? I usually see 57-59. Obviously these knives will hold an edge longer, but be more difficult to sharpen. I'm not familiar with this steel, is it better than average in avoiding chipping?

They add the nitrogen when they are making the chromium creating a new molecule called a nitride. These new nitrides continue to stop rust in the steel but instead of weakening the carbon molecules they bond and support them. This is why we can go to 63 HRC and still be tough. For us in the industry, this is kind of the holy Grail of steel

It appears that, at least for the 9" slicer, the pricing on Amazon is better. Am I missing something?
I'm an idiot so occasionally I need things explained to me: So the initial drop is 74.99 (or 64.99) for what exactly? Is that price just the "Join Drop" price or is that money going to which ever knife we choose?

It is the price of the cheapest knife, the paring. All the others have an additional cost of $10-55.

Yaxell Dragon 2-piece Starter Knife Set: 3.5" and 8" for $129.95
I recently purchased this set (Chef / Santoku / Utility / Pairing) and have been very impressed with their performance and overall value. The secondary bevels are not perfect on the chef's knife, but that does nothing to affect overall performance and ease of use.
