I'm excited to see it! I wish more of these knives were using .012" stock, since slice is nice
I'm still looking to buy one of these Dogtooth knives. If someone has one they need to sell. Just let me know.
Anyone know if the standoffs and clip are Ti?
EhEh-RON
Those parts are both steel. To check this for yourself at home, just grab a magnet!

I don't know why I didn't think to do that, but thanks for the reply.
Am I the only one who has trouble opening this knife one handed? Had no problems with any other massdrop knife, but this one I can't get it to flip open no matter how hard I push. And if the flipper tab doesn't work, then it's quite hard to pull out the slippery knife with the small amount of spine exposed. Is there any way to adjust the amount of force it takes to open the knife?
Koopa
At risk you know this already, but are you making sure your fingers do not press the lockbar while flipping? It's a frame lock and they can be hard to flip if the lockbar is pressed even in the slightest way :)
Josk
Yes I'm sure, I can flip any of the other knives with an identical mechanism in my collection no trouble
is anyone still waiting on theirs? i am.
Very pleased to have one, it's a handsome build and light as a feather.

ALMOST PERFECT! Definitely one of the best knives in my collection, the grind is PERFECT, the blade thickness, action, centered, lockbar insert, CUTOUT to access the framelock (missing on most knives), ect. are perfect. I love this knife. BUT it does have a pretty ugly flaw. The lockbar cutout is too abrupt and the sharp edge under the pocket clip catches on my pants, then once that clears the deep carry portion is not inset into the handle so it catches again. The deep carry clip is thin so the second catch isn't a big deal but the sharp corner of the lockbar cutout is a pretty big deal and catches every time before even getting the clip far enough in the pocket to keep it from coming out. So close, if I had the ablity to sandblast and re-anodize I would drimmle off that point on the cutout and fix it, then slope the very edge of the clip down to the frame to keep that from catching as bad as well.

Sorry dude sending it out on a trade this afternoon

Hey that's the way it goes. But it never hurts to ask. Thanks for letting me know.
This was my third massdrop knife and my favorite so far. Thin, light, wharnie blade, deep carry clip, splinter-picking tip, etc. It's a really smooth little Ti flipper at this price point. It's a perfect office EDC and disappears into any pocket nicely.
Holy moly this knife has blown me away. I can't get over how solid this knife feels given its small size and weight. There is a lot that could have gone wrong with such a unique and feature rich build, nothing did from what I can tell. It really is an EDC of epically good proportions.
Great little knife- the stonewash finish is a lot like the Microtech "apocalyptic" finish and it's really striking. Also, the flipped-open lockup is at about 50%, push-able to like 65%, which is perfect in my opinion. And the case, which I ordinarily don't care about at all, is double sided and can hold two significantly larger knives than this without scratching each other.
Anyone know what material the clip/backspacers/pivot/screws are? I assume the clip is titanium, and that the spacers are aluminum.
Please let me know! Thank you
HandstandsMcGoo
Clip is steel for sure, screws are all steel, pivot is steel, spacers I'm not 100% sure about, but I think they are steel as well.
DaneFuller
Thank you
I really wanted to have the hardware anodized, it’s unfortunate they’re using steel for everything. Oh well 😔
Got my knives and they are great. how do I get a replacement pocket clip. I didn't know that the blue one comes with a shiny clip and would like to purchase or exchange for a tumbled one like in the pics.

Please note that TheClassyCthulhu has subsequently posted that the Boker clip does NOT fit.
Too bad. Even some of the cheapest knives nowadays use Ti clips. IMHO, the shiny satainless clip really looks out of place on an otherwise nice looking knife.
How do you properly sharpen this blade?
kyllir
I just touched it up on a Sharpmaker. Pretty easy but you need to be careful with the tip.
Just wondering if there will be any left over that will be re-dropped? I missed this drop at the time.

Yes, we'll make more Dogtooth available soon - the only difference is that they will not have serial numbers.
JonasHeineman
Awesome! I don’t care about serial numbers. I didn’t even check what numbers my Perpetua or CTF were.
I just received mine. I got the blue scales and satin finish. Incredibly light. Great deployment and lock-up. Perfect centering. A very nice knife. Only criticism would be the choil. It is very large for a sharpening choil and with just a little enlargement it could have been a nice finger choil. With the size of this knife and wharncliffe blade, this would have been nice. The box was crushed on one corner, but you'll get that when envelopes are used (hint). Overall, this is a great little knife.

I received my knife yesterday. An incredible knife, the blue scales look great. The blade opens perfectly and is very sharp. This will become my go to knife. It is light, but strong, beautifully made and is both aesthetically pleasing and very functional.
Penbaron
I agree. Nice knife.
I got the blue satin, really like the finish on the handle, very matte and muted. The cloth below is gray for a color comparison. If i knew the bag held two I probably would have gotten the black one as well.

The clip is shiny but i wouldnt call it chrome, it is as shiny as the blade.
Manchineel
Thank you for the information. Much appreciated.
I'd be interested in purchasing one of these from someone if it turns out not to their liking

I guess I'm not aware of what they went for or what you'd want for it. I'm quite interested
olear075
Man, I tell you I hate parting with it. Just a sweet little knife. They went for $119.99. One corner of the box was smashed a bit because Massdrop ships in envelopes. Not bad though. Typical WE pouch and microfiber cloth with Zinker's logo on it. The pouch says Massdrop on it. I'm not looking to make money off it except maybe my time. E-mail me at geer.wesley@yahoo.com
Wonder how much (time/effort/$) MD saves by using smartpost.... really wish you could upgrade/pay even for usps priority.
I love it. Now I want to get the stonewashed or satin too!

Yeah I got one this time with the black g10 ans black stonewash blade. But I'd still like to get an all Ti version.
Frogface
Cool that you picked up the liner lock version that launched today. My comment was referring to this drop - we'll have more coming soon, they just wont have serial numbers.
Just got my shipping notice, getting excited!
Got my shippping notice!
Carnelian
It's happening! :D
Data
So excited
I'll buy one off someone if they have an extra. I missed this so to family issues. But if anyone wants to sell one, I'd be more than happy to buy it. It looks like its gonna be a really nice knife.
Frogface
I received my shipping notice today. I suspect I'll have mine by Monday. If i'm not in love with it i'll let you know.
WoodyBalto
Just let me know. I'd be more than happy to buy it. Thanks for the reply back

Buff it out
I am too excited for this. Thanks to all involved. I suspect this is going to turn out to be a pretty smoking deal, & I will gain a handy pocket companion for many years (if I'm brave enough to let it leave the house!)
Hey everyone,
We became familiar with Brad's designs through his Urban Trapper and FR models that were popular in the Blades and EDC communities. Based on the strong sales of the regular production versions, we worked with Boker to make some exclusive versions of these available on Massdrop, with anodized liners and steel upgraded to S35VN.
When I saw the custom version of this knife on his table at the 2017 USN Gathering, I loved the teardrop handle and wharncliffe blade right away, and I had a feeling the community would like these new designs from Brad as well. We had an idea of what steel and colors would suit Brad's designs and be popular with members, and we knew that WE Knife would be true to Brad's design in executing the production.
We made only a few changes from his original design: We reversed the compound grind on the bevel - instead of the blade being thicker at the tip, we made it thicker near the choil; this made sense for a knife that's designed for EDC and not hard use, as it gives a bit more strength near the handle for cutting or shaving harder materials, but keeps the tip slender for piercing tape and boxes or making precise cuts. We also were able to give this a lockbar insert, which are not featured on Brad's custom knives. And, based on member feedback and our own experience carrying the Urban Trapper, we rounded the corner of the flipper tab slightly so that it would be more comfortable during repeated opening.
Brad has been great to work with, and we're grateful that he's entrusted Massdrop and WE Knife to make this design available to the community. As with all Massdrop Made knife collaborations, the designer personally reviewed the prototypes to make sure the production was up to his expectations.
A few notes on this drop:
* The drop will be live at 6:00am PT on Tuesday, May 1st. The price will be $119.99 (shipped to US addresses). * The drop is limited to 1200 total units, but there are no limits per color. * Each piece will be serialized, starting from 0001 on each color. Serial numbers will begin with color codes: G for Gray, L for Blue, K for Black. * Gray = stonewashed handle and blade. Black = PVD coated + stonewashed handle and blade. Blue = anodized + oil sealed handle with satin finish blade.
Thanks for checking out the drop and making it possible!
Carry On -- Jonas

who is supplying the steel for the handles or the blanks for the blades? do you have information on your raw material suppliers you can share with the community so we know massdrop is not using unfair labor and abusing human rights for inexpensive raw materials?
The maker is WE Knife Co, look them up. The steel is made by Crucible Powder Metallurgy, I think it's produced in New York.
Brad actually had the prototype of this knife with him at The Blade Show and he allowed me play with it. I was blown away at how well We made this knife! If the next drop for this knife is after the first drop gets delivered, Massdrop may have a problem meeting the demand because this knife is going to blow people away! I already plan a get a few more to give away as gifts. I can’t wait to get mine!!
So how does the cash back work? Is our account refunded or is it a credit on our Massdrop account?
Brand
Hi! The $10 will be issued by 5p.m. PT today. You will get an email with more details. Thanks!
