That kind of price and they using cheap-ass tool steel? What a JOKE. Total rip off. This is about twice what it should cost.
Sebenza is more my aesthetic at this price range, but it's cool that these are available.
Not saying I will not or haven't bought expensive knives, I bought strider, extrema ratio and still have them, and I do use them. Reason? Those knife manufacturer back up their products. No Bs lifetime warranty with superior quality steel.

In that point, fair enough. And lifetime warranty is a must for something at this price point for a knife in my philosophy. Otherwise just seems unethical
Although for me I can't put that kind money out on something seems to precious to use as a daily driver. But as a guy whom have spend a few thousand dollars on knives, I guess I do understand someone just had to have a second kind cool blade.
Hmm, $500 knife made out of D2 and have a 1 year limited warranty? What?

Life time warranty on everything. Check their website!

MassDrop offered its own 1 year warranty while Brous Blades offers lifetime warranty:
http://brousblades.com/pages/faq
KNIFE REPAIR/SERVICE Every Brous Blade comes with a lifetime warranty.
Since my Raven comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Jason Brous, it has lifetime warranty on top of MassDrop 1 year warranty.
$15 off? Lol.

The Raven is not on their website (yet). So for now you won't be able to get it anywhere else... in Europe at least.
For the people wondering, Brous usually makes 100 of each edition. They are also sold other places as well, so not massdrop exclusive. Also, each additional edition is added on to the existing number of units (ex. CF is first 30, blackout is 31-60).

Really like their Dynamic tanto but the shipping costs are too much (58 bucks).
Aviden
That would make it a 600 plus blade!
If this drop is 24 units how did I get 65 out of 250 Knives made
Awsome, but it takes some getting used to. The flipping action is GREAT! The safety is well hidden and has 2 stages, at least for me. I think this is done so that you don't sheer off your thumb when your closing the blade. I thought it was a fault in making but looking closer there is a small, what looks to me like a ball bearing stopping the blade from closing all the way in one go, and this is checked by a very small hole in the blade. This does make a small circular groove in your blade on the right side of the main bearing, but it's minimal.. Otherwise very smooth and very BIG, at least for what I'm used to... The design is out of this world! P.S. in the beginning, flip it HARD to lock well. After about 30 flips it locks smoother.

It's a question of balance. Cheers!

You just explained the reason. Since the hollow side has the additional screws and attachment to the frame lock as well as the pocket clip, it makes sense to hollow up the side so the total weight comes close to the weight of the opposite side which is a solid piece of titanium with nothing else on it.
Got It! And loving it to bits! Took a while but it was worth it, what a gorgious blade!
WackyTabacy
I would not know it showed shipped on July 25 then took 4 days to just be processed and get to the shipper mine actually started to move on the 27th and I Guess DHL just took it to the post office because they have it now lost tracking after that even though I signed up for updates when Massdrop handles a order of mine in a professional manner I promise I will be first in line with Complements. So when it reappears and for some reason I would not be surprised if it does not reappear I will let you know
WackyTabacy
Still waiting for mine. How's the flipping action?
Now looking like August 10 th , please say it ain't so

I must agree with that! If Tom Hanks where dead (god forbid) he would be rolling over in his grave!

Now tracking is gone when DHL gave it to the USPS it seemes to be hard to find if you can let me know when I should expect to receive that would be great.

We've continued to coordinate with the vendor about the group's order and they've let us know that it's taken them slightly longer than expected to gather and prepare everything for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. Rest assured, we will remain in close contact with them and update the group as soon as everything is on its way.

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 these in our warehouse.
Expect another update from us on 7/14 or sooner if something comes up.

I feel we are using slightly wrong analogy. A Ferrari can do so much more than your average Toyota. Can this knife do so much more than your mid end Spyderco? But then again you may pay $150 for a very nice Spyderco and this was $500 so approx 3x price. A Ferrari is I guess 10x an average Toyota. Funny I know someone who has worked hard and bought a Porsche ... He drives it only once every number of months and has to be careful where he parks and in constant fear someone will steal or scratch it.
I don't know what to think of expensive things ... I would not buy this knife in a million years, but I would easily spend this much on a watch or pen. So I guess it's what your passion is?
it-man
I thought the purpose of the analogy is to highlight the reason for embarrassment as in people with dissimilar interest and value come together for the wrong reason. You said you would be embarrassed to tell your friend that you paid $500 for a folder and my point was that by the time you will do so, you won't show it to your friends who don't understand the value. If you wouldn't in a million years pay $500 for a folder, then the subject of embarrassment is non-existent.
E.g. You come out of a coffee shop and bumped into they Toyota owner who spilled his coffee.
Toyota owner exclaimed, "Just my day! My wife loves this Toyota and I can barely afford the lease. Now my coffee is all over the seat! Wholly Molly! What's a beautiful car you've got there! Wow, never seen anything like it. How much did you pay for it?"
Embarrass.....
If I missed this drop, is there any way to still get in on it???
MartyMcFly88
Click on the "Request" button, if enough people request it they will contact the manufacturer again... I, too, missed this drop. I saw it, didn't jump on it, and now regret it.
Just about there! We've been in touch with the vendor regarding the group's order and they've let us know that they are still working to gather and pack the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is en route to us!
Expect another update from us on 7/11 or sooner if something comes up.

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Massdrop-Exclusive Launch: Brous Blades Raven and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 7/11.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 7/6.

Spends $500 on a knife, never uses it .
Definitely a very beautiful piece to include in a collection. I've the Brous Caliber and loves the flipping feeling. I can see this one is going to flip really well also.
This looks like such a practical knife and to get it as such a bargain, just absolutely amazing. And besides, I see free shipping. Just could not ask for better.
it-man
Is this comment sarcastic or serious?
defg
Yes, I can see myself splashing out $500 on a showy knife. This knife is selling, so I guess I'm not seeing something.
wish you were dropping the stonewashed version - id join asap
Thank you.
Overpriced. This is high quality fixed blade pricing, and this is a folder. Being so overpriced in addition to such mediocre steel makes this a horrible deal, no matter how cool the design LOOKS.

that is the best analogy i have seen in a long time. kudos to you.
Exactly. But don't forget that the Toyota owner also has the opportunity to become a Ferrari owner later in life. By then, this former Toyota owner will face the same dilemma when he is having a conversation with a Toyota owner in the parking lot in the future.
We evolve mentally, spiritually, and financially 'cause we are constantly searching to advance. Cheers!
It's gorgeous. Something I would expect from ckf but at this price and the steel used I would rather get a ckf
If only this is a "bit" cheaper. :D
