Why dont you guys give us better photos of non massdrops collaborations knives 🤔🤔🤔
This feels so nice. A few slightly strange design aspects, basically the design of the lining (not flat) inside seems weird, like it'll be susceptible to dirt. I'm a lefty, sooo- Oh well. But the wood is lovely. Blade and edge great. Thick, but it can sit on its side. But the wood! I can't stop playing with it.

I'm actually not sure. The steel is good and edge is sharp and smooth.

Yes...yours is like mine. I’m no expert, but I’d say that “N690“ etched in the blade would indicate the steel it’s manufactured with. N690 stainless steel is by most of the research I’ve done a well respected steel of good balanced properties that is fine grained and takes a really nice edge...as mine does. I have no problem with the steel. Had this knife been advertised N690....I’d have eagerly bought it then...and I still would now.
That said.....it was advertised as having CMP-S35VN steel....which is arguably better steel all things equal. I don’t think I’d really ever be testing the knife to extreme limits. But if you google the price of blade blanks of equal size....the N690 is no where near as expensive....so there’s that! I love the knife, and am surely keeping it...matter of fact I’m currently coating the scales with Tru-Oil.
I just wish the knife i received was the knife I bought.
And an explanation from Massdrop would be nice....
Got mine today....very nice knife...a little stiff..but smooth action. The burl on mine (green) has a unique pattern with some orange in it...love it! The finish of the scales is very dull/matte. I think some Tru Oil will really bring out the grain....stay tuned on that. So.....the real surprise is that it seems to not have the steel advertised...mine has n690 on the blade...which is a nice Austrian stainless steel....but it is in no way close to the composition and production method of the CMP-S35VN. Kind of interesting that Maserin did this.......
What a let down, mine came with over 50% lockup and some defects in the wood , Maserin has some quality control issues and Massdrop does not sample what is shipped or I would have never received a knife of that quality, I guess even on Massdrop it is buyer beware.
I as well am not satisfied with this particular knife. Incredibly difficult to open with one finger (as I've seen many youtubers do) and fit and finish is subpar. There also seems to have a marking missing on the blade as compared with the two 389 knives on their website. Blade did not come nearly as sharp as I would have liked.
Just got mine today, very dissatisfied with the design. Hard to open with one hand, wood handle looks cheap in person, and corrugated metal makes getting thumb to unlock more difficult. Good thing Amex has purchase protection and I can return to them.
I'm on the fence with this one. I've read good things about the steel in the blade, but im concerned about the "corrugated" liners. They dont' appear to fit flush to the scales . There are lots of nooks and crannies for dirt and dust to accumulate from pocket carry or everyday use. Not sure how to keep it clean.

It is a gentlemans folder. Its very capable but with the wooden scales that are untreated, I don't think it would be a good edc. Its a nice carry to drop in the pocket of your suit incase you need a blade to cut a cigar or something of the like (not that it couldn't handle more)
It is a small gentleman's folder, but fits like a glove in my medium-sized hand--can just get all four fingers on it. The actions is very smooth. I think $70 is a great deal for this knife.
Is this 100% made in Italy or designed in Italy, but made in China?

How did you tighten yours?... there's no screw head under my bolsters.
SureSh0t
I don’t have a model with bolsters, only full length scales. The pivot screw is under the scales on mine. Not sure about how to get off the models with bolsters.
And why is the desertwood $16 more? I think it looks worse than all the others

I wish they were a little clearer in the description, but my guess is that this "desertwood" is desert ironwood. If that's the case, it's very hard, dense, and fairly impervious to moisture, making it tough and unlikely to warp; most ironwoods will actually sink in water rather than float. With those attributes, it's very difficult to work with and shape, and the trees themselves don't have a large growing region. Both of those factors tend to drive up the cost.

Desert ironwood is just a rarer wood.
Is it me or does the black burl look badass?

I thought the same. I know each piece will be different, but I just didn't care for the look of the one pictured.
tlblakburne
I have the black burl. The darkness varies on these, but it has very nice color variations.
So the bio discusses Maserin as the brand, but nowhere on the page does it detail into where this knife is manufactured/ assembled. Where is this knife being mass produced?

I'm unsure...I see the name of the town, and the word Italy, but nothing about "made."
Bog4rt
I just received mine from a prior run in the 368 model. the paperwork is very clear that this is an Italian product made in Italy.
I'm unsure if the green burl wood scales are as vibrant as the pictures advertise
A._.H
Based on the different videos on youtube (also look at ones for other Maserin knives that come in green burl), the answer seems to be "YMMV"; some seem more vibrant than others (even beyond allowing for camera differences). "Natural wood product" and all that...
A._.H
That deep green is my favorite. As long as it doesn’t seem like a “Zombie Green,” then a forest green would be the most attractive to me.
I got this Masrin offer "Maserin Atti Folding Knife" one of the screws fell out - and I have had no luck in finding a replacement. Emailed Maserin - no replies :( Any ideas on getting a replacement screw?

I still have the useless knife with missing screws

Contacted Massdrop regarding the missing screw and got the following ridiculous response:

I've been so tempted by the Maserin options that have been available lately. If you could make the Gourmet available, I'd be all over that.
I want to purchase the dark brown knife but am unsure which knife it is, It would be helpful if you labeled the handles In the pictures, so as we are sure to order the correct knife.

Click on the photos at the bottom, under handle options. They're labeled in the shadowbox.

I've received the knife in Australia yesterday. I'm quite surprised to see it got through custom just fine as I couldn't find any sign of tampering on the bag. The box was squished but the knife is ok. Apart from a few dents on the scale, it's perfect. Cuts through stuffs easily. Very happy!
Update: after using the knife for a while, I can say that it's still beautiful. The scales hold up quite well, with only a bit of denting around the edges (it's wood after all). This is not a heavy duty knife so don't treat it as such.
Because I got the beech gold version, it comes with nickel silver upper scales too, and these tarnished only after a day or two. Surprisingly, the edges are still perfect, probably because they weren't belt sanded so the protective plating is still there.
The blade is gorgeous, the edge stayed sharp until I was cutting a cardboard core (cling wrap) in half. After that, it's off to sharpening. After an hour or two on the 3 Arkansas stones, I still couldn't make the blade aggressive enough. It's quite tough getting these sharpened. I nicked the thumb stud a few times on the stones , too. Not a huge deal, but it is something you need to be mindful of.
Conclusion: I would say if you want a quality knife for light tasks, these will serve you well. The quality is very good, blade is rock solid, perfectly centered and very sharp out of the box. Definitely an interesting company.

So how did Mick, aka "Crocodile Dundee", get away with carrying what looked like an 13 inch croc' slaying bush knife? LOL.... All kidding aside, I feel bad for you guys Down Under.
Btw knife crimes happen quite often. The news just doesn't really report it outside of local news
Just received this nice knife. Quite pleased. Thanks, Bradley

The beech gold shows a metal bar at the neck of the handle.. Can the black be ordered this way. On line it shows it is sold this way ?
Well, I was saving up for a Small Sebenza 21 with an Insingo blade. But that costs $350. Maybe I'll get this one instead for now. Does anyone here know if the quality of the steel and folding mechanism in the Maserin Atti is comparable to the Sebenza? (They both have the same type of steel, but the quality of the heat treatment makes a big difference.)

The angle of the edge has more to do with its intended use then the steel type; since a gentleman's knife is usually dedicated for opening envelopes and boxes, a shallower angle can be used without much fear the edge may become damaged.
CRK does run their S35VN at 58-59 RC because they want their edge to be a bit more robust and easier to sharpen, though some people aren't a fan of that.
I personally think a Sebenza is worth the $350+ asking price. The difference is not the materials they use, but what they do with them. The amount of extra steps and time they invest to ensure every single part of their knife is perfect is where the extra money is going. When you buy 10 Spydercos, Benchmades, Zero Tolerance, etc. they will all have varying tolerances between each of them. When you get 10 CRKs, all 10 come perfect out of the box. To achieve that consistency with such a high level of of fit and finish is ultimately the reason why they cost so much compared to other knives of similar materials.
Whether that's something necessary for a knife, is personal opinion. A lot of people buy a Sebenza because they like the idea of it, not because they want to use it.
I am always astonished that people use a pm2 as EDC.In my point of view,a knife with which to peel an apple is so annoying is not one.
Too bad Green Burl was not an option.
kmccormick
Looks like it is an option now... and I’m sorely tempted despite lacking much in the way of funds.
The black burl knife is beautiful.
so the company is italian.. but where is this knife made?
DocZZZ
Maniago, Italy @DocZZZ
Massdrop, any chance we get the favri next? :) I would have bought the fly if the cheapest handle color hadn't been so ugly lol.
Hey everyone -- Sorry for the confusion; sometimes the names of these woods get lost in translation - totally my fault on this one for not giving complete and exact info to the creative team. We've updated the Note, Specs, and Options to have all matching and correct info, as well as photos on the options page. Thanks for flagging @FriggaD @Mezz @Sharmanova
