So, did anyone else get a plastic handle instead of aluminum and rubber?
Wtf!! No shipping to Canada
Weren't we supposed to get the aluminum frame knife ???
Did anyone else get the wrong knife in the most recent drop that was schedule to be delivered on 4/11?
Well, not a big dent in the wallet and I'm not yet a knife connoisseur, but having the comments to read through would have really helped my choice. next time.
This was the first thing I ever bought on MD and 2 years ago I got it for $22.99.
I assumed the same, Kerahaw used to be notirious for soft blades. Thats not bad it just means regular maintenance To keep sharp. I recieved one as a guft a few years back and they have really stepped up their game. Yes this is available at Walmart but so are a lot of great products. I also noted a stud at the front I assume it is for smashing a window during a rescue if blade is retracted, not in details on page. Tempting gift idea here!

Why I always check the comments and run a quick search for pricing and reviews..... This is a shitty walmart quality knife too.

That link goes to a plastic handled model, where the Massdrop description suggests an aluminum handle.

Can't recommend buying this knife at all. Kershaw knives are not really quality, from my experience. I've got a couple of these, one EMT and one non-EMT model, bought before I realized that they're not great. The lifetime warranty is craptastic, I had one brand-new one fall apart (the clip fell off of the non-EMT model of this same knife) and almost take a finger off. I gave up after two tries got me the wrong parts delivered with no explanation and no indication they actually read my email or cared at all, really.
$29.99 is also an insane price. This knife regularly shows up on discount sites for $10-12. If you're really hot on getting this shrugworthy piece of meh, just shop around and wait a bit.
Seriously Massdrop is not the place to buy knives at competitve prices anymore. Ebay and Amazon is the go to site for me now. Massdrop doesn't ship to my country too.
20.95 with free shipping from Kershaw on Amazon?????
I bought this last time and hadn't even checked this discussion since. I got the WM. I feel a bit disappointed that if they did know there was a screw up in their supply, that Massdrop never reached out to potentially affected customers to try to make right the ones that might have gotten inferior stock. Guess it's too late for me now, but it definitely doesn't leave me with a good taste in my mouth about ordering again.
And we're back to no international shipping? Now, is this on purpose, as usually happens if the vendor ships directly to us, or a MD screwup like for the Cold Steel folder a couple of months ago.......?

Sorry - the manufacturer's distribution policy prevents us from shipping this, and most all Kershaw knives, outside the US.
Under $24 shipped from Amazon. How is this a deal?
The blade has arrived, checked blade pretty unimpressed to hear I have received one of the inferior WM. How can something like this happen?
Great. Seized by Australian customs for being a "flipper knife", even though it uses basically the same mechanism as a fucking Swiss army knife. Anyone in Australia that has not yet received their knife, yours has likely been seized too. Thanks, Australian customs, for keeping the public safe from a tool I was going to use to open boxes and bottles.

Actually, the Funxion is not just a mere 'flipper' knife - it's a very aggressive flipper. I push just slightly on the flipper and BAM! - the blade jumps out almost like a switchblade. But since the blade is rather heavy and the assist mechanism is very strong, it impresses much more than the average switchblade. That's very likely why they seized it.
Still nothing... Starting to get a bit worried.
Mine says 8100 on the blade, and 8100 sticker over the 8100WM sticker on the box. Black handle. Had a tiiny nick near the point I was able to fix with a diamond hone. Sharp as all heck out of the box. I could shave my arm with it. I'm not optimistic about the edge retention, however. Does anyone else find the glass breaker point kind of annoying? It put a hole in one of my shirts already.
What exactly is happening here? It's been almost a whole month and I haven't had any indication that this will ever arrive.
How is it that the 8100 can be offered in this Bazaar sale, yet Massdrop was unable to exchange the inferior 8100WM that customers received during the last drop? Clearly there was inventory of the 8100 at Massdrop. I don't know the full story, but it appears very dishonest.

Great, thanks for the clarification.

I got the 8100WM last February. Should I be worried?
Still waiting for something, anything.
I am from Australia, don't particularly see a reason it would be seized. Hoping for the best.
muncher
Also in Oz, also still waiting.

Any new developments Muncher? I have not yet received the package, nor any customs seizure notice. I used Australia Post's Parcel Locker Service.
I just checked the box and there is an 8100 sticker placed over an 8100WM.

Where does it say 2484 people have ordered this? There are 761 on this drop, 500 on the previous. That's 1261 at best. Next, what percentage do you think even participate on the discussion? I haven't seen 1261 individual commenters.. So from there you need to rethink how your interpolating your percentages. I think once you do you will find it to be a far higher percentage.

I'm looking at 2484 right now. Scroll down more and you'll find it. I don't think it matters that few people normally post here - if enough people get bad knives we'll see a lot more complaints. I got the red knife today - amazing quality. If there's a way I could get numbers or word of a plan to replace them I'll share what I know here. I've worked in warehouse and shipping for decades, and a bunch of 'WM' items being mixed in with the good stock doesn't surprise me at all. So far I've been lucky and everything I ordered was perfect, and I really don't want to have a bad experience in the future. That's why I'm so interested in this.
Anyone has this shipped to Singapore? Does it needs to go through any special procedures?

Hey Kappa, just received mine today. Box says 8100 but the blade is a WM. It came with a nice nick at the tip of the blade. T-T.... How's yours?
I'm in SG as well, and I received a 8100WM on the 27th Feb. Hope yours comes in soon.
I received the 8100 version. I'll have to look at the box. There was a sticker but I just figured the number had something to do with shipping.
Has anyone from Massdrop commented here regarding the issue?
mitsu
Nope.. They've stayed silent.
I hope Massdrop brings back the red Funxion.
Got mine today, so happy it made it through Australian customs.
