$72.80 on Amazon with free two day shipping...the only difference is the color of the scales. I honestly don't care about color on this sort of thing. Now if it came in S30V or D2 I would be all over it, as would every knife nut on the internet.
HEY MASSDROP! Something you may not know about majority of knife enthusiasts? We know nearly every site that sells the brands we're even vaguely interested in.
Even if I won't buy from a certain site usually, I price check everywhere I can. Regardless if I'm paying 2k+ for a custom or $40 for a certain budget knife I've had my eye on - it's an expensive hobby generally and saving money while doing it is really part of the hobby itself.
Don't be surprised when a knife that you guys can't offer for less than other larger sites, doesn't sell. I love your site and have bought quite a few things from yah and will continue to, but your blades community needs a bit more market research outside of your excellent exclusive line.
FLAT EARTH!!! I KNEW IT
I have agree with the feedback above - this is not a good drop. If it's not possible to get existing products at reduced prices using our 'mass' buying power, I would at least like to see unique versions of existing products offered exclusively through Massdrop.
Maybe a Becker BK2 in D2 steel with Micarta handles and the good kydex sheath for $85 (or whatever). Something I can't get elsewhere, like my SG2 Delica 4 that I can't wait to receive.
Ive owned this knife for about 5 years now. The black coating on the blade chiped off from around the tip after the first week of using it - not really a big deal though. I didnt buy it to keep it in pristine condition.
I can order this from Amazon and have it by next week. Or I can pay an extra $15 - $25 and wait two months for it by joining this drop.
Seriously: you guys need to do some market research, first. Most of the drops you have in knives and electronics are just not worth it: I can find it cheaper and faster elsewhere.
I would consider the commit price a pretty good deal, even if it is just for the color. It's a $3 difference. The 5 person commit price is still pretty steep though. That's a 20% markup from the 10 person commit.
Amazon has it for $77 with prime, similar price on Walmart.com. BladeHQ has it for $88.... If the FDE, which looks great, Ultramid scales and the 26 day wait to ship is the reason for the cost.....really not worth it.

Boils down to if you feel the Flat Dark Earth scales are worth an extra $13. I bought two sticks of Micarta to carve my own though.
