Bohler n690 is a so-so steel, this knife is worth about $50
I wanted to discuss something in an older comment below, but didn't want this to get lost in the crappy post order thing that happens here.

MASSDROP : the knife runs on THRUST BEARING!! Why do you fail to mention this very important point! This is an actual selling point ! I mean, bearing is already nice, but this one is no cheap IKBS or ball bearing. Thrust bearing are designed to withstand a good amount of AXIAL load , while ball bearing are not .
------------------------------

There are many types of thrust bearings.
KnifeCenter shows the following pic of the bearing on the product page :
This type is nothing more than a regular caged ball bearing with grooved races to stop MINOR axial play. Something I've seen in much cheaper Chinese made knives as well.

At any rate, is a thrust bearing THAT much of a selling point? Seems like marketing to me.
Assuming everything else is machined with tight tolerances, won't the pivot pin and the cutout that the bearing and race is recessed into stop any and all potential axial play anyway?

This isn't a dig at their marketing or manufacturing or anything, I'd genuinely love to hear from anyone who has actual knowledge on the topic, if this is really a perk?
OK, Massdrop has no problem being open when a knife is manufactured in Italy and puts it right in the details, but when it's made in China there is no information in the description like it's some sort of dirty little secret. How about some consistency? The provenience of the knives I purchase is important to me. I also realize that there are some damn good Chinese knifes (WE, Kizer, etc...). Just give me all the info up front so I don't have to run it down, or assume it's Chinese manufacture because you didn't tell me it was otherwise.
Damn you Massdrop! I've been lusting after an Italian folder for a long while (was considering the AM1 or a Viper Storm, a Hinderer design); this knife would fit the bill nicely; $160 is good, $150 would be a great price, but...I JUST DON'T HAVE THE MONEY RIGHT NOW, do you understanding me? I have toot many other knife purchased I've made, am making, and/or will be making shortly. All kinds of great stuff like a rare Pro-Tech, a Hellhound Ultratech, and little custom job, a couple Spyderco sprint runs, a ZT sprint run, and of course, as many of the Massdrop exclusive collaborations as I can scrounge up the $ for. Oh yeah, and I have it on goof authority that Microtech is actually going to ship some UTX-70s in the not too distant future (that's just twixt us folks).

So please MD, could we just have crappy knives for a while whilst I rebuild my financial reserves? Just for a month or two?
Love the look of this knife, but would prefer both handle scales be titanium. Does anyone know if this is an option anywhere?

I see a lot of knives that have a presentation side that is one material and a frame lock side that is metal, but I'm such a sucker for symmetry.

Me too... A little OCD actually. It distracts me to hold a knife where I can feel the difference in materials in my hand
Which is unfortunate, because I really like the looks of this one otherwise, and don't have anything in this steel type yet
At last, I jumped in. It's been a long time since this knife started eyeing me and me eyeing it back. It looks too cool and I trust Italian manufacturers (I own Fox knives, Vipers and they're all of excellent quality) .

Come on people, for this price, this is a steal !

Bohler-Uddeholm which is a german smelter.. you can expect quality steel.

Sorry! I just read the price in the next comment! I'm in!

I spoke too soon & just noticed the price on the next comment!
You know, if y'all who have hit the "commited" button would hit the purchase, we'd be an AWFUL lot closer to the 10 needed to hit the $149.99 price point. Just sayin...

I really want in on this drop but it seems they are out of the green ones..
Just noticed on line at knifecenter has this knife in black for $159.00 but it seems only for black! I'm willing to wait for the tan/green myself!
God damn this website sells a lot of knives. Um, review, "I killed 16 guys with this knife, highly recommend!", I guess?
No, really, knives here sell way too well. Who buys them, and what for?

I buy knives because i NEED THEM... emphasize NEED.

If you have to ask, you won't understand almost any answer, LOL
Just received mine and it is extremely nice for the price. Very similar to a ZT 0801 but not as hefty. Would be an excellent full size EDC. Really nice job.
I wanted to switch to the green handle, but I just noticed that the green ones are sold out. I know the drop is nearly over, but is there any chance there might be more before the drop ends? I imagine the chances of this are incredibly slim.

I ended up just getting the black one. Thanks though.

The drop is back.
