Iinteresting for the price
I'd like one, but cannot get past the still-too-high price Fox wants for these things.
Is it 440A or 440C? To me that's a big difference. I have a Boker Magnum knife with regular 440A and it stays about as sharp as a butter knife. TOTAL POS

Wait, why do the other sites say it's 420 steel? That's gas station knife territory.

That's a damn good question, and something someone from MassDrop needs to clarify
I can't seem to find any angle that shows the steel type marked anywhere on the blade.
Some sites list it as 420, some list it as 440, some places (including BladeHQ) list it as 1.4116
Edit: forgot to add that Fox lists it as 1.4116 on their site: https://www.foxcutlery.com/n/en/product/1991/mini-ka.html
I've seen people comparing 1.4116 to anything from 420HC to 440A to Aus4 (I didn't even know that was a thing lol I've only seen 6 and 8) This may have something to do with the confusion in the specs on different sites that are trying to list a familiar equivalent
Zknives steel comparison grid puts it comparable to X50CrMoV15 (found in many softer "German stainless" kitchen knives)
In short, it's a cheap steel, with a cheap handle, that should come with a much cheaper price tag, IMO I still think it's interesting that it exists, but I refuse to pay near this price considering the size and materials
Hmm. I'm a fan of Fox and Karambits but, this is still $15 to expensive for what it is.
Getting closer on that price, down about $15 from last time.....might be worth picking up in about 2 more drops if that trend keeps up lol
I miss the karambit that's sharpened on both sides of the blade. Used to have one but lost it.

You can sharpen the other side yourself. Use a coarse diamond stone and it wouldn't take too long, especially with 440c.
I have the 479 and absolutely love it. My gf is always sayin how jealous of it she is, so I saw this and thought this would be perfect for her since shes so tiny too. Looked into the specs thinking it would be similar to the knife I already own, then I saw it..... 440 stainless...... between that and theres no real easy way to open it (one of the best features of the 479 I have, the emerson wave) I cant say how disappointed I am. If i wanted a small 440 stainless knife while spending $50+ Id run up to the asian import store nearby and buy 3-4 of their knives....

I was scratching my head about the deployment too, especially given how great the emerson wave works on their larger models. Can't really figure out if there is a way to efficiently open the design that ends with the blade in a functional position.
What's more useless than a karambit?
A tiny karambit.

I'd say the uselessness of a karambit depends on who's holding it...

Agree to disagree.
Lol price just got lowered, yet it's still no cheaper than elsewhere (and still way overpriced, but that's Fox's fault, not MD's)

That he is!
One this short would be a great dedicated package opener, or arrow whittler? Might work well for cutting cordage too, it's practically a single serration! lol
It would be perfect for opening up all those knife box 📦 packages!
440 for good edge retention? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Mini knife. Maxi price.
Pass.
I love the look of these but the price, not so much.
65$ ??????? Really Massdrop??? These should be 20$ TOPS
arcosis
TOPS would be much more expensive
440? For $70?!? Really?
$65 for a Keychain with an inch of 440 on it? I love a quality small knife, but for this price they could've at least used a better steel and still made a profit

I was thinking the same 👍
KnifeCenter sells them for $55-57, but that's still too high (but s good amount cheaper than here)

Edit: I'm also confused as every other site shows this with the fix logo on this side, but the clip on the reverse
Edit again lol Found a better pic on another site... Guess the clip is actually reversable. MD should definitely talk that up, get the lefty crowd in here...they're used to paying a premium over realistic costs anyway 🤣
