Hey everyone, it's #FerrumFriday and the Crux is back!

The Crux was originally released in June of 2017 as our second collaboration with Ferrum Forge. We've been really pleased to watch as this model has gained quite a following and become a favorite EDC for a lot of people. It's become part of my regular rotation because I think it's a great balance of being easy to carry and beefy enough for serious work, with almost 3.5" of blade length ground from 4mm stock.

Elliot Williamson, the knifemaker/engineer behind all the Ferrum Forge designs, is known for the bold milling designs on his custom and midtech knives, so we wanted to incorporate some of his creative design work into what we are doing here with our collaborations. We've also seen that blue and bronze have been popular colors on other FFKW knives, so Elliot's brother Chris, the mad chemist behind their stunning custom finishes, designed these anodization treatments and helped us to make this one available in some new community-favorite colors.

Just a few basic housekeeping notes on the mechanics of the drop:

* Members who join the drop before 10:00pm on April 30th will see their orders processed and cards charged on April 30th. The drop will remain active until 10:00pm on May 31st, and anyone who joins in May will see their orders processed when the drop ends at the end of May or if quantities run out.
* Our order has already been placed with WE Knife, so the delivery time is shorter than many other collaboration drops - our Estimated Ship Date is June 28th.
* Because the order has already been placed, quantities are limited to 1425 units (see style distribution below). There were approximately 1180 Crux sold in earlier drops, so the total number showing on the page could reach as high as 2605 on this drop.
* All knives will have serial numbers that begin with a designation for the pattern and color. They will be randomly distributed (not based on the order in which you join the drop) from the following sequences:

Original / Gray: OG1201 to 1500
Original / Blue: OL0001 to 0150
Original / Bronze: OZ0001 to 0150
Juggernaut / Gray: JG0001 to 0200
Juggernaut / Blue: JL0001 to 0125
Juggernaut / Bronze: JZ0001 to 0125
Saber / Gray: SG0001 to 0200
Saber / Blue: SL0001 to 0125
Saber / Bronze: SZ0001 to 0125

It's always fun working with the team at FFKW, and it's particularly exciting when we see there's enough interest in an existing model to bring it back with some new variations on the original. Thank you to the members who joined the first Crux drop for making this second offering possible, and of course to everyone who is checking this out for the first time!

Can we get a drop on the ferrum forge "archbishop"?

Oh man, a hybrid between the Falcon and Crux?

Looks like a sick design. My wallet would appreciate if I could bring myself to live with the Falcon, Crux, Gent, and Buc though :/

Hey everyone,

Great news: The WE Knife team finished production ahead of schedule. They also shipped and cleared customs quickly, so they've already arrived at our warehouse nearly two months ahead of schedule!

So, we'll be closing this drop tonight at 10pm PT, and our team will work on shipping orders out ASAP to everyone who has already joined this drop. We've moved up our Estimated Ship Date up by one month (to the end of May), but we think it will happen much sooner - we still have to do the QC and process a fairly large order.

Once we have shipped out all orders to members who have already joined, we'll re-launch this drop and make the remaining units available for immediate shipment.

Thanks for making it possible, and for your patience as we move through the fulfillment process.

Great job S.D I really like the splatter effect you used on a few of them. Did you get to see any of the videos from Blade Show 2018? Man am I going to be one broke knife nut when the next wave of knives hit the Dealers!😯😰😲 😎
Are any other colors ever going to be in stock. I have noticed that only two of the choices have been available for the drop each day. I would like to buy one but don't want silver.
I thought this was just a redesign of a falcon, I couldn't have been more wrong. Sure it's the same materials, designers and manufacturers but that's all the Crux and Falcon have in common. The crux has a rear partially exposed stop pin where the falcon's stop pin is hidden under the handle and a groove in the blade. The "feel" of the action is completely different also. It's hard to explain but if your on the fence this is a different but equally awesome knife. Oh the detent is softer on the crux compared to my falcon. Love them both!!😍💪👌👍
Just received my Crux. Another awesome FF knife. WE does an outstanding job producing these custom collaboration knives. Blade is centered, everything tight, the action is silky smooth and its razor sharp. Thank you MD, FF, & WE
I want a plain one, but OoS :(
Most options are sold out.... STILL....
I can not wait to get my knife. I absolutely love my falcon so I ordered a Gent. Got tired of waiting on production of the Gent so i ordered this. I love quality knives with reasonable price tags. Thank you FF / MD 👍👍
The Massdrop/Ferrum Forge custom collaboration knives are awesome. Great designs, materials, and execution. To me the value factor is off the charts. The knives are not perfect (nothing is) but dollar for dollar, they are the best deal available.
Just ordered this in saber/grey since it's my only option. Gives me an excuse to try home anodizing.
These coming back in stock in plain scales anytime soon? Not feeling the patterns on this one and would love a blue scaled version.
MD.! Why are you telling that I forgot to check out? What I left in my basket was something that I didn't want. A great knife with an UGLY carved up gray handle. It's getting a pair is plain blue handles on it so hard? I've got$125 I'm waving at you if you can get those blue ones.
I was looking for information on Rike knives and wound up watchng a YouTube video by Shabazz about this knife. Altho he did not like the flipper (He called it a pocket pecker and whacked himself on the finger several times to demonstrate this.) he had very high praises for this knife. I have several S35VN blades and an M390. What to choose? What to choose? I have come to appreciate Nick's reviews, so I will go for this one. If I am going to be in the mud, I will bring along a knife without bearings.

I really like the finish on my falcon
Gunnersmate2
Yeah those first-gen ones with the blasted finish soften up to a very good feeling, mine and my Crux are like soapstones.
Will it be available with a standard handle any time soon?
