How much did these go for on the latest drop?
jessewaldo
$80
Literally just lost my black gent at a party last night serial K1760, and the drop is sold out/over today!! Aghh
who would I contact regarding the warranty on this knife? also how could I get replacement screws?
JustinDehg
Click the little man in the upper right-hand corner, click "Transactions", find the Gent, click "Contact Support".

I've contacted Massdrop, Ferrum Forge and WE knives about replacement screws and no one has them available. Massdrop said that they are trying to make them available but who knows when that will be. The pocket clip screws on my buck came partially stripped and I was unable to remove the clip so they replaced the knife. Hope that helps
anybody know the detailed specs on the phillips screw , after removing the handle....looking for a replacement.
Overall happy with quality and workmanship. A bit tight on initial flip action but would rather that than fall open easily, it will wear in. A bit thin for my hands but it is a gentleman's knaf. Love those burl eye scales tho.
When will blue be back in stock?
I'm curious. Is the warranty on these knives still valid 'second hand'? I mean barely used condition.
A few minutes on BHQ might be able to find an analog to this for a bit less, but this seems much more reasonable of a price than Massdrop's first knife. The Crux was hugely overpriced.

I don't have a Facebook account anymore. How much are you asking for them?
Gunnersmate2
$45 plus shipping. Snakewood and Ironwood are expensive, this is even more expensive for a chunk of wood
Is the significant difference in price between this model and the Crux just due to size or is there something else I'm missing? Knife novice here

Thanks for the reply! Those pictures are super helpful

The gent is a bit small for my hands so my next buy will be the Crux. I like a slightly thicker handle.
Salut à tous, Le mien vient d'arriver en France aujourd'hui, après un transit de 8 jours via DHL/La Poste. Vu le faible montant des frais de port (dans les 3,50$ de mémoire), rien à dire. J'espère juste ne pas recevoir une facture de TVA d'importation dans les jours à venir, ce serait dommage. Montant total de l'achat pour l'instant : 75,88€ net. À part ça, la (petite) bête est tout simplement superbe, à tout point de vue, et fonctionne sans un accroc. Je vais rapidement lui appliquer du frein de filet sur le pivot, par précaution, et le doter de belles plaquettes de bois si Joël veut bien les expédier outre-Atlantique. À première vue une belle acquisition. David.
have you posted the drop from the 28th?
Hey everyone - I wanted to give you all an early heads up that we'll be relaunching this drop on Friday, March 9th! Everyone who requested the drop will get notifications as well, and it will appear in the regular daily email.
Thanks to everyone who made the first drop a big success, we hope you're enjoying your knives! Before we get rolling, a few notes:
1) Thanks to the success of the first drop, we've been able to place an order in advance for this round - that means a shorter delivery time, so we'll have an Estimated Ship Date of April 30th.
2) In addition to the original black scales, we've added Blue and OD Green scales. A color indicator will precede the serial numbers. There will be 1140pcs of Black (K1500 - K2700), 475pcs of Blue (L0001 - L0500), and 285pcs of OD Green (V0001 - V0300). The reason the quantities don't match the serial ranges exactly is that we reserve 5% of inventory for warranty service, just in case.
3) As you may have seen, we included a handkerchief in the first drop instead of the usual microfiber cleaning cloth as a little surprise for everyone. Folks seemed to like it, so we’ll be doing that again for this drop.
Thanks again for making this possible, here's a sneak peak at the new colors:

Nice! Thanks.
JonasHeineman
Hey Jonas will there be another round? Hoping to pick one of these up in blue or green.
is it me or do the crux and the gent look like they have the exact same blade?
Cdoyle
The crux blade is a little longer at 3.4 in vs 3 in. It also has a chamfer/fillet (I can never remember which term is correct) along the top of the blade and I think the top of this one doesn't have that.
6cyl
Ill admit i didnt compare the specs but they look eerily similar! Thanks for explaining the differences.
After reading through a number of comments and reviews it sounds like there is/was an issue with hardware that would strip very easily. 1) Was it just one bad batch or is/was it a problem with all of these knives? 2) Has this been resolved/do these now ship with properly hardened hardware?
Is a delivery in Belgium possible?
2" blade version please. This is too big for my watch pocket where I carry my Ridge.
So what are the ferrum forge massdrop line of knives considered anyway as far as like a production knife or semi custom or what exactly? Anxiously awaiting my new gent!

Sorry for I was there now, I love it. Honestly one of the best "simple straightforward" TI framelocks ive had. Its not quite drop shut, but its close, with buttery smooth action. The heat treat so far has been pretty solid for me, so the steel is great. It slices well and strops very sharp. The finish on the TI is something I wish I could get more of, its like the titanium version of when they texture plastic to feel soft.
Benjabooly
Sweet. I have more than a few ti framelocks and they are always nice pieces. S35vn on bearings with a steel lock bar insert and a milled ti clip makes a great knife . Problem is they are addictive and now im wanting another one...the crux! Thanks for the feedback on it.
just picked one of these sweet gents up. Originally i was holding out for the select cf model, not sure how much extra that costs over this one, but after i saw this guy in the comments is making custom scales ill be hitting him up for those OD micarta scales! Been wanting some for a while now. I have some natural micarta scales on my pm2 but really wanted the od green so now ill be getting some hopefully😀
Bonjour, j'adore la forme de la lame et la forme du manche. Pouvez-vous faire ce couteau en fixe et en 2 fois plus grand ?
Sick of my pictures yet?

Oh man... I missed out! I just saw this now and ran to eBay to buy them but they're gone. Those wood scales are stunning. Any chance you'd make another set?
AdamSN
For sure. I’m just waiting for more wood to come in either this week or next week
I wish there were some blue ones left!
jgmvm
I'm sure the guy who posted above you could make blue G 10 or micarta or whatever you fancy ! He makes custom scales for these and I just talked to him about making a right hand only set of OD micata scales. Mine should be ready early next week sometime. And the price is more than fair!
Cdoyle
Ordered green G-10s from him already! Can’t wait to get them!
I click on this drop every day somehow expecting that the blue model will suddenly be available again.
xenofly
Ha ha me too - :-(
Disappointed. The blade is not centered at all. The opening of the blade is not fluid.

Open it up and tighten the pivot screw. Might wanna put some threadlocker on it as well
Zhus
I reverse the pivot and now is better. Thank you from france.
Again, I ‘d like the blue but it’s unavailable. Waiting for the next drop.
Warning for folks who haven't purchased it yet; unlike the big knife companies like spyderco/benchmade/kershaw and so on, MD doesn't carry spare parts for the gent. I found this out while disassembling mine, I dropped one of the standoff screws which has no disappeared forever. Keep that in mind when purchasing as you won't be able to get the level of warranty service you may be used to. That being said the Gent is still an amazing knife for the price, so long as you're excessively anal while disassembling it to not lose parts. I've got two, one of them opens reliably, but is a little rough on the closure, the other flies open like an F-22 with full afterburners open and drops shut with a minor shake, with a far superior action compared to my spydie southard.
Followup though, support recommended trying a hardware store for spare parts, does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone found a source for replacement screws? They have to be out there somewhere, the gent uses a bloody phillips head non-D pivot, there's no way it's using proprietary hardware. Thanks in advance, hopefully we can figure this out to help all the future people who'll inevitably be as clumsy as I was!

Thank you for taking it upon yourself to offer custom Gent components, Joel! I picked one up from the latest drop and can’t wait to take it apart.
Did you find replacement screws, or no? I‘m thinking of dipping the heads in an acid bath to take off some shine, but would like an insurance policy.

I've tried everywhere... UK component shops, Chinese manufacturers, this hardware is custom. I can get close, but not the right length, or the right length and wrong head, etc. I'm hoping to have a run of them done but I'm still working out the details with a US manufacturer.
Does anyone know what the factory bevel angle is on this? 17 or 20? Just want to make sure I'm about to sharpen with the right angle, since my first sharpening is due.
Got mine in. Nice little knife. Has a more solid feel to it than I expected. Fun to open and close. There were a couple little imperfections in the chamfer grind on the spine of mine, but i guess for 80 bucks i shouldn't complain. I went OD green and I like it. Curious to see if the clip holds up.

No, it will bend out of shape slowly but surely. But removing it, bending it back and putting it back works. But I find it too small - or more precisely - too thin.
