Just wanted to advise you guys that I joined this drop and received a knife with serious side to side blade play. Just slight pressure to either side and it sounded like the grips were going to snap. I contacted Massdrop and they said the item is not defective and will not accept my return. This is terrible customer service from a loyal Massdrop customer.

Shoot, that sucks. Hopefully they can escalate your case and fix it. Either I got a unicorn or you got a turd, because mine is showing tight tolerances and built like a tank.

Yes it does suck. I am glad you received a quality product. I have already contacted Massdrop and they told me this does not qualify as a defective item. So they took my money but will not make this right. Terrible business practice on their end and I will never buy a thing from them again, and I will tell everyone I know to do the same.
Can't see the clip?

I can, in the 5th picture. Looks like it is a simple flat metal piece attached by the glass breaker. You can see it in the video review linked in another comment below.
Not to be gruesome, but I'm a hunter. & i love the tan micarta(desert-dweller). Any extra protection for micarta? Stain/water resistance? (Blood) in particular. And I know there were better choices considering. But I want my Tan Micarta! Dang nabit! Jimminy krickets!!!

YMMV, but I've found that Micarta doesn't suck up blood like some vampire material and turn all nasty and gross. After lots of use, it'll develop a little bit of a patina where a G10 handle still looks like it did when I got it. I've heard and read about Micarta wicking, but either I've always gotten pieces with great resin or I'm just not picky about the same aesthetics as the detractors who say to treat it with kid's gloves. I also liked the look of this one, so we'll see if I get another good piece of Micarta or regret my decisions....
Great looking though I too am not the biggest fan of lock backs unless spyderco, this gives the viper fortis some competition at this price
Looks like a pretty good knive (not unlike the Pitbull) but I just wish they made a smaller size perhaps with a bit nicer Micarta.
$140-150 seems like a decent price. Found one site at around $170 plus shipping, but everywhere else seems to be in the $185-200 range
I'm guessing the weight is based on the G-10 ,hard in these images to tell the difference between the c/f and G-10 this knife is made of good materials for the price (don't know if Mass Drop is the lowest price) but there is just something about the look of the blade i just don't find appealing thought at first kinda a half- track look ,but no looked and I like the half-track more , still a quality knife for the money and the micarta handles are nice too. The real problem i have is with the main picture wich one is it c/f or g-10 there is a $10.00 extra charge for c/f
This knife checks a lot of boxes, though im surprised its so heavy for 3.25" blade and CF
anyone know if the glass breaker is removable?

I’m watching a review rn that makes it sound like it comes with both a glass breaker and a non glass breaker screw that you can swap. I don’t know if that’s dependent on how or where you buy it. Check around 6:30 https://youtu.be/0X1vJZhc3Hw
Might have to go in on this one... if anyone missed it, Maserin’s M390 on the Nimrod waaaay outperformed the competition in Supersteel Steve’s testing.

Thanks; that's great to hear!
Not a huge lockback fan or micarta but that config looks incredibly sweet in this knife. Love M390 too.
zipsurf
this also might be some of the best-treated M390 around
Do you think there would be a substantial weight difference between the CF and micarta handles?
joshk311
I just did the google and Knife Center lists the weight of the micarta handle at 4.4 oz and the G-10 and CF at 4.7 oz. They are also $188 and $198 respectively. I'm thinking i might have to pull the trigger...
No but maserin is quality stuff. I'm pretty tempted myself
The G-10 image is the same as the carbon fiber image. Is this correct?

I was thinking the same. The whole thing seems like pretty decent pricing for m390 and cf Anyone have experience with this knife?

Not directly, but I've had my eye on it for a long time. Bang-for-the-buck, this looks to be an amazing knife. Reviews are all very solid, too.
