Hey everyone, based on the comments I wanted to clarify a few things about these pocket clips…
1) All members who file support tickets due to bending or breakage will be offered the new version as a replacement at no charge. They are not yet available, but we do expect they will arrive sometime in March (WE Knife, and most Chinese factories, are closed for the New Year holiday during much of February.) We've heard that some members got conflicting information from our support team, so if you feel that you should get a replacement under warranty, please do let us know by replying to the same thread, or opening a new ticket and we'll take care of you.
2) Any members who simply prefer the new clip will be offered the discount as previously described, after we have shipped all of the clips needed as replacements.
3) If you would prefer to get a replacement clip sooner, we should have about 125 original style clips available later this month. Clips are generally recognized by knife manufacturers and consumers as “wear and tear” items. While we stand by our warranty for the Falcon and all knives, you should expect some stipulation in future drops regarding a limited time period for no-cost replacements on pocket clips only. There’s a very good reason that almost every major manufacturer offers them for sale separately, and that a whole niche industry of aftermarket clips exists.
For any questions about clip replacements, please submit a support request through your original transaction record, located in your member profile. Thanks everyone for letting us know how you feel about this and helping to drive our rapid product development cycle.

I'm thinking about joining and am looking at the blue, I see the clip is the grey on the blue, is this how it comes or does it come with a matching blue clip?

Every time I try to file a customer support claim, I'm told you don't have my email on file. So, I try to enter it and send the message, but keep getting a msg saying "oops something went wrong". As i navigated here now, via a daily email you sent me, I don't understand.
I got a first run Falcon collaboration, and love the knife, but I got a bad pocket clip. So, I need the improved clip, as well as a couple of extra clip screws please. The original screw heads are a bit rounded out from taking the clip off to straighten it several times. I stole a clip that fit from another knife in my collection, so I can carry it, but in the grand scheme of things, that just really doesn't work for me.
Please advise me how to proceed.
I don't know why I keep getting g the "Oops" message, but I've tried to do as I'm told SOOO many times, I decided to try here and in the feed back forum. I know they aren't the proper channels, but something isnt clicking with my account.
I look forward to your timely reply. Thank you
I'm having a issue with a slight grinding feeling in the action it comes and goes but keeps me. From flipping the knife open? Any thoughts?
If any one is interested in Purchasing a BNIB Falcon for $100 or a LNIB Crux $115 Shoot me a message Can answer any questions and provide pictures of anything.

Interested in the crux
Anyone interested in trading their falcon for a A massdrop xBrad Zinker dogtooth?
Got mine last week. I like it, but it was not very sharp when it arrived. Can anybody recommend a sharpening angle? Thanks
One year later, here is my Falcon on my little blog:

I see a lot of people complaining about the stiffness of the detent and that they can't wrist flick this knife open. I think the flipper tab is there for a reason and appreciate the strong detent. I have a couple of knives that are the opposite and I only use them as a fidget item when I'm lounging around. This knife is a workhorse that screams quality and provides the most bang for my buck.
Gunnersmate2
I totally agree. A stiff detent is the magic behind a sweet hard firing flipper. To me, a soft detent that requires a wrist flick is a poorly tuned flipper. I have some, but can't stand them. If you are into wrist flicks, maybe a gravity knife is the toy to look for.
I've had my falcon for about 10 months now and I've recently found that it doesn't fully lock up anymore. Once I open it, I find that there's about a millimeter or two of lockbar play and I have to push it in before it fully sits at about 1/3 lockup. Anyone else have this issue?

I've run into that a couple of times, with full lock-up at about 25%, much earlier than I'd prefer! I was in the original drop, and have used it a LOT, fortunately the failure to lock is very sporadic with me.
Popcorn4evah
I've found that tightening the pivot and re-lubing the joint helps a bit. Still inconsistent but it is what it is

If anyone is looking for an aftermarket deep carry pocket clip, try pops custom clips on etsy. They are titanium come in various colors and are well made and work great
Got my drop the other day. I have a number of pocket knives by Benchmade, custom made, etc. I was very impressed with the quality of this piece and the small touches like the pocket clip doesn't have a lip on the end that makes it easy to scratch the leather in my car seat when clipped into my back pocket. I have never seen a clip with this design and goes to show the attention to detail. Very impressive. The close action is something I haven't seen before. It has a close action that snaps closed with finality. The blade is thicker than I had originally thought but not as heavy either. Now I have a few S30V pocket knives and this one, being S35VN is new to me. It feels more solid, a bit heavier and and smoother? Anyway, an incredible value for the price.

Not sure any of my knives with milled titanium clips (of any brand or maker) have that outward lip as you describe. I'm guessing it's because of the material thickness, and the ability to mill in that entry ramp. On stamped and bent clips starting with thinner material, that "ramp" is created by bending the material. Really, the only way to do it with thin stock.
And I totally agree that it is a fairly good value with quality end product. Now you just need to pick up the other dozen MD collab knives. These things are a bit like potato chips. I dare you to eat just one, while looking into the nearly full bag. ;)
So I’ve had mine for a couple months and today while casually flipping it a t work, the detent ball fell out and is nowhere to be found... I am very very disappointed. I loved this knife. Is there a way to get a replacement or something? I can’t send it away as I love in Canada and it was risky enough getting here in the first place, because of stupid CBSA. Any help is appreciated.

UPDATE* Massdrop sent me a replacement knife free of charge after sending pictures of the old knife. Very pleased with the level of customer service I received! Thank you guys!
TheknifeofCollin
I've had nothing but positive experiences when dealing with Massdrops customer service workers. I brag them up to anyone I know that likes knives. Especially us knife knuts here in Canada with our insane Customs BS 💩😠
Did anyone else get their falcon with rust spots on it out of the box?
Load 1 more comment
Mine was from the first production run. I opened the box right after I got it and it had these petena dots on it. Didn’t think anything of it put it in my pelican knife case and packed my case and house up from New Hampshire and moved to Florid. When my stuff got to Florida I opened the pelican case and it had a couple rust spots where the petena dots were.
Nate2016
Didn’t take long once it shipped a couple days at most
Just used mine to slice up a nice juicy peach. Washed it up in the sink, now drying off in the toaster oven on warm. then a quick lube. Out of the oven now, cooled down and all oiled up. Flips better than ever.
If anybody is interested in a no-wait opportinity to purchase a falcon wing version of this knife in bronze, i just received mine today and quickly realized it's not for me. Knife is brand new . I took it out of the packaging and played with it for about 20 minutes is all. Didnt cut anything. $135 shipped to the US only and no wait.

Do It! Do it now! Great little knife! I even used mine as a chopper the other day to cut some 1/8" wood dowels.
Hello Friends,
I've got one of these on sale from the first run and with the new & improved clip installed. I'm moving out of the country and need to free up gear. Thanks! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F183268419686
Looking at some of the fantastic custom anodising jobs. Amazing. Massdrop how about doing the Falcon in another colour, I love my blue Crux.
Blade edge angle? Does anyone know what angle the blade is ground? I want to maintain the same edge angle when sharpening. Thanks
Bacchus
I'd bet the edge is put on by hand on a grinding belt. While the goal is to be even and consistent, every edge will be somewhat variable. If you have the capability to hit a specific angle, you will be best served by setting the edge yourself when received. This is what I do to probably half of my new knives if not both even and sharp out of the box.
My first attempt at a home ano job, not nearly as clean as some of you talented motherfuckers, but I thought it looked kinda cool.

I’ll be honest, this wasn’t a one-and-done type of thing, I did strip and re-ano this several times to get the color I wanted. Whink rust remover makes it easy to redo. That purple is hard to hit, it goes from pink into blue in a blink, hence the stone wash and re- ano, makes kind of a mixture of blue and pink that looks purple. Also, in regards to that color chart, I’d be willing to bet it’s pretty accurate if you‘re using a constant voltage (i.e. a DC power supply) which I believe is what Bflying uses. I’m pretty sure the 9V batteries take a dip in voltage as soon as you put a load on them.
kennedyzero
Yes, batteries tend to vary somewhat. Also the size of the part, size and type of cathode, and amount of electrolyte will also affect it. Plus the fact that without some type current limiter, you are confined to 9 volt increments. That's one of the reasons I opted to drop a buck forty for a power supply. I have seen online where people have built little RadioShack type adjustable resistor boards to put in-line with the batteries. . That way they can pull 1-8 volts out and effectively give a current with around one volt increments. But that seemed like too much work for me, when you can pick up a power supply for less than the price of most titanium knives that I would be playing with.
Most of the purple I've done recently was in the 15-18 volt range. And around 19-20 volts lands a nice "blurple". With my machine, 21 volts yields a deep blue that turns a bit purple-ly with body oils from handling.
Another cool effect to try is a two-tone stonewash or scratch pattern. Give the part a nice solid color like purple or blue. Then give it a light stonewash, or scratch up the edges with a little sandpaper or Scotchbrite. And redip in a lower voltage like 9-12 volts for a bronze color on the newly exposed titanium. Very similar to what @kennedyzero did with the blue-pink-purple, but with contrasting colors.
And like kennedyzero said, Whink Rust Remover will eat through anodizing in seconds, and let you fix what you don't like, or just start over for a new look each week. But be careful what you dip, and for how long. The stuff literally eats titanium and steel. If you dip a lock side with a ceramic detent ball, I've not seen many issues. But if you dip, say a ZT with a non-removable steel ball, the ball can be damaged beyond repair very quickly. So I usually paint the steel balls with fingernail polish, or even rubber cement if I have the time to let it dry. The rubber cement rubs off easily when finished, but gives it some protection in the Whink. And if the steel lock bar is not easily removed, coat the contact edge also. While doing things like anodizing for cosmetic purposes, you want to make sure none of the working parts are affected. A little extra care goes a long ways to make sure the tight tolerances are maintained.
@JonasHeineman Is that normal that my pivot unscrews ever so slightly that there is very slight blade play every 15ish flicks of the knife? I really like to play with it, open and close it, but it really is annoying that even I am putting generous amounts of loctite it just doesn't hold it.

Doh! Sorry, I missed that. That's odd. Never seen simple flipping break through locktite. Are you putting it on the threads at the end of the screw, or just under the head?
Bflying
In fact, I tried both, and have 0 idea why it happens.
Are they gonna make the blue one again? I got too late to the drop I love this knife !!! But I have one too many grey titanium knives. Otherwise I’ll buy it in a second
Steak Proof. Wiped on my pants and a cocktail napkin. The Steak was delicious. More evidence that a very light coat of oil and a wipe down after use is all it takes.

How is your ano holding up? I'm still "green" with envy over that color you landed. And with batteries if I recall correctly.
Bflying
It’s holding up great. Yup, i did the ano with 9 volt batteries and baking soda. The key to a good ano is to etch the titanium first. I used wink rust remover.

Falcon with a clip from Pop's.

I just received my knife and whilst the quality seems good - I'm not too happy with how it functions.
Unlocking the knife is quite difficult. It's hard to get my thumb to push the liner lock out of the way completely - I have to sort of push with my nail (which I've already broken within about 5 minutes of having this knife)
Detent is also very strong. Much stronger than what I've seen in peoples videos as mine is next to impossible to finger flick. This seems really inconsistent between knives.
been sitting here looking at the the past week. I'm gonna take a chance and wait to grab one thats not grey.

That's how they do, in-stock items get one day drops so they ship quickly.
Worth picking up. And really nice to not have to wait 8 months. 😁 They may bring the colors back. Or if a particular model slows down, they will simply shift focus to the next new toy. If it were me, I wouldn't wait. Unless you are waiting for a different model. Also highly recommended the Crux if it comes back. An amazing mid sized EDC blade. And they can be easily anodized after the fact. Heck, I'd even ano it for you if you pay postage.
Anyone think the gray scales could be heat anodized easily? I’m going to give It a whirl.

Here is the post I was remembering with the heat ano pics. Towards the bottom of this thread.

Thank you for taking the time to find that for me. I think I’m going to try the “tiger stripe look“ I’ll try the insides first and go from there.
Well, I pulled the trigger, missed out on the Crux and I was sad. really wanted the blue one but it’s out of stock. Oh well guess I’ll have to settle.

Check again, you have a few hours left to get one.
No more brass???
