Couple of questions:
I assume the clip can be set for right side tip up carry, correct?
How well does the Cr8 steel hold it's edge?
Does it have the same slickness/grip issues seen in the Leek?
i bought this knife back in july 2017 for 20.47 from massdrop my son loves it.i was waiting and waiting for it again to buy for my other son. well i looked for it endlessly on internet until finally i became available on amazon for for 20.47 and i got it in 2days and it is in fact the exact same knife i purchased on massdrop and it is free shipping for me on amazon prime i do shop weekly on amazon but i also shop massdrop because of things to get that nowhere else has i just thought i should let my fellow massdrop community members know i have been seeing this alot on massdrop and the fact that we buy things in bulk i feel we should save a lot more than .48 cents and that we pay for are own shipping.i still hands down love massdrop for the products they offer that are either not out yet or the availability. like the roccat gaming mouse i just received from massdrop for my 16 yr old son xmas and this is not even released yet to public these products are the perks i like on massdrop bought i find myself now checking every single item massdrop sells now to make sure i am getting a great price. the fact is once again if we are a massdrop community and we buy in bulk i surely think in my opinion that not only should we get free shipping on are products but we should also be saving more than .48 cents on are bulk buys and this is just my opinion everyone have a great 2017 christmas
I own a kershaw leek in the standard stainless steel handle. And I find it very slippery go a point I don't carry it as often as Ide like. Is this zing ss going to be the same issue? Thank
Do you have any pictures of the presentation side of the knife?

So they put pocket clips and integral locks on both sides of the knife?
Great for the price. Nice!
I've owned this little beauty for quite a while now(did not purchase on Massdrop) and carried it everyday for an extended period. It is a wonderful knife. My wife carries it now in her purse. She loves the speed safe floor action.
I have to agree with Lereas on this one. The Thumb Stub is not all that effective, at least for me it's not. I tried with one thumb and then both thumbs and then finally two index fingers and finally was able to get the blade out into position. But the flipper action is Spot On!!! Great every day carry knife for simple tasks.
This little gem will join me on my 6k road trip through the USA in Oct. while I hike, camp and backpack.
Just what I was looking for.

Hi! I have a moderately large knife collection. Even with many knives available I am amused that my EDC is a "lowly" Kershaw Blur (i have customs to choose from) with SpeedSafe assist. I have tried at least a half-dozen Kershaws with SpeedSafe, but I only use the stud, and not the flipper. I suppose it is a case where ones choice may be what is familiar to that person. Having designed a couple myself, it would seem the stud is more ergonomically accessible. In my case, I have been using "one-handed" knives for decades, and the stud is closer to automatics, so the transition was more normal. If one is used to opening the knife by rubbing on ones pants, then the flipper would be preferable. All in all, I would suggest that the average person should try to use the stud for a while...even if it seems clumsy. Once the knife begins to break in, the stud is actually easier.

Having said all that, there is another overriding factor. For thin framed knives, it is definitely more difficult to use SpeedSafe by either method. If you are serious about carrying the knife for a long time, I think the less experienced might do well to learn both methods before making a commitment to one.

BTW, this appears to be a nice knife.
Nice knife. This was my first MD purchase a while back. It's good for opening packages and other lightweight tasks, and it looks great. I always go "ZING!!!!" when I pull it out of my pocket. The previous sentence is not actually true.

well it should be

Yeah, you're probably right. I have noticed the more expensive and harder to find things hold a very tight corner niche though.

lol I tried southamericanjungle like WHAT?T??
Why did I get an e-mail about this drop when it has already ended? Pretty irritating

Same. :(
It can't be shipped to the Netherlands, even though on the list of countries the Netherlands is included. Why is this the case?
I got mine from the last drop, and I've been very pleased with it so far.

I can't speak for those who use this knife for heavy duties, but from my experience with using the knife to unbox products (I'm tired of using scissors...), getting rid of tags from new clothes, cutting papers and wires, etc., it is more than sufficient.

I think for folks out there who have similar thoughts like mine (you just want to get something handy and portable for situations where you've been using your key, scissors, ruler or even your nail), this knife should be on your radar. The size of this knife is perfect for day-to-day carrying. I have it right in the back pocket of my jeans and most of the time I don't really feel it. The pocket clip is small but comes together really tight and makes it secure, so it won't accidentally slip out of my pocket.

As I have said, I only use it for easy daily duties. The thumb hold flipper makes it really easy to flip the blade out and use it whenever I want to quickly grab it out. The flipper has SpeedSafe assisted opening, so it won't pop super easy unless you give it a little bit of momentum when you flip it.

For under $20 price point, as I don't need something expensive to handle heavy duties, I'm surprisingly satisfied with this one. Would love to see some reviews on other uses:D Cheers!
