I just received the knife and I must say that it is a great disappointment. First, the knife isn't even close to being sharp. It won't even cut paper. Secondly, and more importantly, it is extremely difficult to flip open. The finish is nice and it fits my hand well, but if I have to open it like a pocket folder, then there's not much point. This will be the last knife I get via MassDrop ... the logistics for returning something like this are just too obscure and there is usually not much (if any) of a price advantage. A final point, this is advertised as a Limited Edition SDC v2 .... there is no documentation, certificate or any indication at all that it is any kind of "Limited Edition." In fact, there is no information included at all except for Liong Mah's business card with a bar code decal on the back.

Why not just buy a Sebenza for a little more. This is really expensive for a relatively unknown brand.
DDro
I love the Sebenza; they're an awesome knife, but these knives can actually give Chris Reeve Knives a run for the money. Liong Mah is a well known designer. He's designed for Columbia River and other mainstream manufacturers. These knives are actually manufactured by Reate, a China based company that's taken the mid-tech knife world by storm. Reates have incredible quality, fit and finish. In addition to manufacturering for Mah, they also manufacture for Todd Begg, Faisal Yamin and produce their own in-house designs. I own several Reates and they're all excellent. They're active at Blade and Shot Show, as well as on enthusiast forums. You can't go wrong with these knives and the price has gradually crept up...I bought my first Reate, a Horizon B, used for $140! These knives surpass your basic Benchmade, ZT and Spyderco and compete with >$500 mid-techs.
Pointless drop, GPKnives have the SDC for the same price and you get free shipping plus you're not getting a piece of shit knife with your purchase, and you don't have the retarded Massdrop wait time.

I guess we'd call this an "imaginary steel steal", lol.

I like to steal the steel steals.
It'd be nice if there was a drop for a premium knife that wasn't right handed.
Got mine in today and I am super disappointed. The edge on the SDC V2 looks like they never finished sharpening it. I can press my finger down on the blade and slide it down the edge and it doesn't cut me. Tried it out on paper and it won't cut paper. The GSD is fine. This is simply inexcusable on a knife this expensive. My only options being to pay to have it sharpened or use Massdrop's interminable "open up a ticket" process.

Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect the group's individual packages to ship.

I'm in. Hopefully this set of knives at this price point is decently sharpened unlike the kershaw I got from a previous drop.

Good man
I just opened up a ticket. It's for the kershaw funxion.
No accounting for taste. I like Liong Mah designs, but I don't like the blade shape of the tempest; however it sold well here and this one, which I find gorgeous, can't seem to get off the ground. To each his own.
This drop has gotten close to becoming successful in the last day of its scheduled run, so we'll extend it by a few days and hope that at least one other member will jump on board to make it happen for everyone.
To be noted that the SDC has added touches that is not on the SDC that others sell. So it's in reality an even more limited edition... But it's still way over my budget, especially since it's in US dollars, and I'm in Canada (I lose to the rate exchange).

These prices are fair. The manufacturer is not going to undercut other dealers and the prices are fixed. Adding an additional knife is a fair bonus. You can always give the extra knife to someone who doesn't have a decent knife. By the way, the GSD is by the same designer and is an excellent knife. I'd buy this if I didn't already have one.
Hey @Patrickk -- Prices on the Tempest and SDC were switched; this is $349.99, same as you will find everywhere else, but with the bonus GSD included here.

@JonasHeineman - Noted, thanks.
I do want the SDC but I'm not particularly a fan of this bundling strategy, where I have to also buy a knife I don't want. Based on the prices elsewhere (350 & 63), I would only be saving around 3% and I end up with a knife I didn't even want in the first place...

Yeah, that's kind of my take as well. If you're in the market for both knives it's a good deal, but if I only want the SDC, I'll have to flip the bonus. If I wanted the GSD, I'd be on this, but it just looks to heavy/short for my taste. To each his own.
We 'd love to @theupandcomingcorey, but the manufacturer has zero flexibility on pricing for these.
