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:

I wish there were some blue ones left!
I click on this drop every day somehow expecting that the blue model will suddenly be available again.

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.
Dangit......the blue is always sold out.....guess I need to get on this quicker next time.
I would take this in a heartbeat if they made a thumbstud version. I like flippers but they are getting a nasty (totally unwarranted) bad reputation in most of Canada. The looks of the Gent is exactly as it's name suggests and might not scare too many sheepeople.
When the hell is this drop going to END? It keeps saying 24hr then it extends. I want my knife to ship already and yet it's gone from 24h to 72h total. What gives, Massdrop?

For in-stock items, instead of doing one big drop with one end date, they just do a bunch of consecutive one-day drops. That way the drop will end on the day you join, and they can process the day's orders. Rinse and repeat. It's kinda hokey, but I guess their ordering system isn't set up to work like a normal shopping cart.
The drop for the FF Falcon works the same way, except they actually mentioned the daily restart in the description for that one. FWIW, I joined one of the daily Falcon drops a couple of weeks ago, and they shipped in roughly 3 business days.
Black canvas micarta. I’ve got green running now as well

Are you just on Facebook or are you on other sites as well? I'll go to Facebook if I have to but I've pretty much boycotted them.

Just made a set of red G10
i want to buy this knife ,what do i do for that !! urgent thanks
There was this whole issue with the blade steel staining or developing a patina after use on food. There is NO steel ,stainless or otherwise that is impervious to everything. I don't know how many times I've seen "stainless steel" rust. And to the people that have lost all faith in massdrop, ferrum forge the US and renounce their citizenship because they've been hoodwinked and sold "cheap Chinese crap" ; Good bye and don't let the door hit you
Damn I want one (or two).
Will this drop ever launch again?
Melliferous
I was just thinking the opposite, like can we have a week without 5 Ferrum Forge active drops?
HandstandsMcGoo
😁😁 Yeah, what you said is more accurate!
I ended up originally getting this knife and it had major problems, massdrop did right and sent me a new one that has been perfect since. The value is awesome, slicey little knife, fits nice in hand, love the slim deep carry clip.
Only concern is I've had it probably 2ish months now and use it for everything from cardboard to food prep and the blade itself is starting to get little tiny speckles of rust... I dont live in a humid climate by any means or near any body of water, I clean my knives as soon as im done food prep and wipe the blade down multiple times daily. I have knives in d2 and I make knives out of o1 and unless I leave them wet (which i dont do) the knives dont get any rust from just sitting. I also have 5+ other knives in s35vn and have never had this problem.
Im curious if they're actually using s35vn at this price?
Tyizzled
I am sure the price is able to support S35VN but simply the question of if they did swap a different steel in or not is a bit scary. Ferrum Forge has a very good reputation. I would write in and ask their warranty folks to respond and see what they say.
in blue, please... !
Can we purchase parts for these?
I liked my first so much I bought another listed as NEW on eBay.
It’s been destroyed. Completely useless. The blade was contacting the frame, so I removed the scales to adjust it and look what I found.
Waiting for the seller to respond. I can machine a new pivot from scratch if I have to, but I shouldn’t have to.

A PayPal dispute should clear that issue up. Sucks though.
AdamSN
I got most of my money back... probably could have gotten it all back if I paid for shipping back but then I would be out the cost of return shipping.
@JonasHeineman, looks like an eBay seller is going to do their absolute best to screw me over on a damaged but listed as new Gent. Any chance I can purchase just a pivot please?

Yes they are all Phillips. T6 was my thoughts exactly
joelellis
This crosses my mind every other day
More scale colors options please. I vote for orange.
Hello, Is it planned to make this knife again?
YannickR
I don't know :( I seriously hope that yes, someone have this information ? :)
Also had a request for green micarta. Turned out well. Super grippy!
