looking good!
JaleesaG
thank you so much. very impatient to have it in hand.
Hey everyone - Friendly reminder that members who have already joined prior to 10:00pm on June 30th will see their order processed and cards charged on June 30th. Members who join after this time will have their orders processed when the drop ends.
JonasHeineman
Will those of us who joined the drop prior to June 30th receive our knives sooner?
Hey everyone,
The Gent has been a big hit with members - both knife enthusiasts, and folks who never carried a pocket knife before giving it a shot with the Gent being their first EDC.
While the G-10 scales are great for everyday carry, we have seen a number of members making their own scales and asking for upgraded materials. So, based on that community feedback, we worked with our great partners at Ferrum Forge and WE Knife to bring back this popular knife with some new scales: a modern carbon fiber, and a classic rosewood.
A few notes on this drop before we get started...
* The drop will begin on June 19th at 6:00am PT. The price will be $99.99, with free shipping to US, reduced rates for International. * This drop is limited to 1000 units of each material. * Wood is a natural material; the color and grain of all scales will vary between every knife. * All knives purchased in this pre-production drop will be serialized. * After this drop ends, Gent Select in any future production runs will not be serialized. * Serial numbers will be randomly distributed; the time/date when you join the drop will not have any affect on which serial number you get. * Members who join prior to 10:00pm on June 30th will see their order processed and cards charged on June 30th. Members who join after this time will have their orders processed when the drop ends.
Thanks for your suggestions to give the Gent an upgrade to Select class, we hope you like it just as much as the original if not more!
Carry On - Jonas

Any update on shipping?
Gunnersmate2
The drop ended like six weeks ago, did you have a specific shipping concern or are you asking for a general update?
There won't be any changes for a couple of months at least.
This drop still on schedule to ship in mid November? Any updates? Thanks
So when are we going to see scales for our gents sold separately? They're made to swap out without affecting the pivot. We want color and material variety without having to buy another knife! Or do I have to RIT dye my baby blue that wasn't as dark as I'd have liked?
Mine is way off center. One side of the blade is touching the liner. Eventually it will scratch the blade. It's a really nice knife but this is a real bummer.

I got mine in the previous drop....
Thanks. I’ll try it out!
I would like to see more scale options and colors (I like orange) on the next drop. That CF is cool but, how about some offsetting colors in the CF. Black scales getting a bit old to me, how about you? That will raise the price on the fancier scales but, I am good with that as other products on Massdrop have done.
Is it possible at this late date to change the handle material that I selected from carbon fiber to rosewood? Robinson Truitt <rob.truitt.aia@gmail.com>
One thing with Massdrop is I'm learning patients. I've been waiting on the Spyderco delica with super gold steel for months and now I'm waiting on this gent. I know my falcon was worth waiting for, hope these are also worth the wait.
Does frame lock spring have steel washer or something at the tip? Or hard steel blade grinds soft titanium directly? Something like this:

What knife is in the picture?
Gunnersmate2
Clone of Coordinal by Sinkievich. Something like this(but mine is plain D2 steel): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Grr-Tgdd7ig
Hello, Love the knife. Any chance of a drop on LEFTY Gents? Please?
Regards, James

They’re ambidextrous. The clip works on either side.
I'm really tempted by the rosewood handle but I've never owned a knife with wooden scales. Are they prone to chipping or breaking?
Firebirdz25
I have the Fantoni Dweller in Cocobolo for a traditional gent carry. Comes with a leather slip pouch rides in pocket without being scratched by other items.
I would remove the pocket clip on this and find a nice pouch. This would be for dress (suits) outfits in wood handle not my edc. Same with watch, lighter, pen, hankerchief.... Whole accessory kit for dress occassions.
I gave my original FF Gent to my son for a dress knife as I found preferred slip joint of the Fantoni to flipper. But younger individuals should like the modern style and I believe at this price point is a gem.
Am considering another gent in wood scales but do not want serial number so will likely wait for a future run.
Firebirdz25
Not sure about this knife but I've had wood (cocobolo) on my colt 1911 pistol and it was carried daily for 3 years with no issues.
Can anyone tell me whether the blade is exactly 3", a little shorter, or a little longer, from the end of the handle to the tip? I'd have preferred a blade length a hair shorter than 3" for legal reasons, so am trying to figure this out. Many thanks!

At the other end of the spectrum, Chris Reeve just released the Impinda (sp?) (high end slip joint), which is still listed on the site at just over 3”, which is a real design oversight if marketed mainly in the US.
KL98
Lol that's brilliant, design a slipjoint at just a hair over 3" so it really doesn't have a point beyond being nice.
I like my lockless knives to be under 3" to help me rationalize their existence vs my nice locking knives that range from 1.5" up to 3.9" with lots of integers to choose from.
This drop is a big win for the knife community. It shows that the supplier not only listens to their customers, but will also jump in and bring the customer wishes to market Ina relatively short period of time. Yes, I know, it's still months away. But it has previously been mentioned some of what it takes to bring a new SKU from idea, to shopping cart. Big thumbs up from me. 👍🏻.
That being said, I am still on the fence as to whether I'll be picking up another Gent. Not because I wouldn't love another, but just need to balance the cruel reality money management, and juggling other wants/needs of family with my own.
However in the meantime, will continue to try my hand at my novice (at best) skills to mod the models that I'm fortunate to already have. And will definitely be picking up some of JoelEllis scales. He has a great scale variety with exact mill matching. And was smart enough to price them in a fair, but not overdone sweet spot for a custom plug-n-play add-on.
Here's a couple more shots of my Hodge Podged Gent. On front, cold hammered Silver Bullion over Bronze anodized Ti frame. On the lock side, hammered Copper over polished titanium. As is probably very evident from my posts, but I have a little problem with decisiveness. Or at least I think I do. Not really sure. I should probably run a poll to see which way I lean. 😜

No lock bar insert?
Ben24
I've been wondering about that, too, since I've read about titanium lock bars wearing and eventually becoming unreliable.
ReasonableFacsimile
ive heard that the titanium has been carbonized, which apparently makes it much more durable. But haven't confimed that.
I had the original Gent and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately it fell out of my pocket at work, so someone now has a great knife that they don’t deserve :(. I think the stonewash finish is a step down - please offer it in satin finish again.
Ksmouse
Sorry to hear you lost your gent. I love mine too, it's a great knife and a ridiculously good value.
I'm sure they'll offer it in satin again. I hope they offer it in satin with these scales or other upgraded scales, because I really don't think stonewash suits this design well. Fingers crossed!
Notsurewhyibother
Satin and carbon fiber scales would be fantastic
https://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC1.A0.H0.Xgent+scales.TRS0&_nkw=gent+scales&_sacat=0
I've received a few requests for more info on our Facebook page. I decided to put some of the scales up on eBay. A couple of the options are sold out (Padauk, Walnut) but I will gladly make more, and since I've already done the legwork of programming my CNC, just ask if you want a different material. Enough people have asked me for CF that I've ordered some of that already as well. I figured for $99 and how much I love this knife, I would just order the CF version (and I did), but I know some of you want CF without having to buy another knife, and I'm glad to help.

Damn, I've ordered the rosewood version... if Massdrop can change my order to carbon fiber, I'll order a pair of scales from you. They look superb. How about making some rosewood ones? lol
GLRTV
No plans to offer Rosewood. My supplier doesn’t have it an Massdrop already offers it so I can’t imagine much demand. I ordered a Rosewood one for myself on the new drop ;)
I am looking forward to this blade. The reviews have been so positive of previous drops and the carbon fiber looks classy. Glad I got in on it.
Stonewash is not a good choice for gentleman's carry. That is more of a working finish. Satin or mirror would be a better choice.

Stone wash is supposed to hide wear/scratches, so in my opinion it's like putting plastic body cladding on a sports car. On an SUV or truck (beater knife or fixed blade) sure. But on a sports/luxury car (gent folder) it looks very out of place and is kinda pointless. Taste is subjective of course, just my opinion.
BoxBlade
I guess these aesthetic distinctions are a matter of taste. Some of my favorite and somewhat expensive knives have stonewashed blades. I've seen a lot of Shirogorov knives with stonewashed blade finishes, and they all looked pretty classy.
I have one knife with a near-mirror polish finish, and it looks great. Some satin finishes are attractive, and some not as much. The satin on my original Gent is OK but has a very fine pattern. For a brushed satin finish, I'd prefer more prominent grind lines. I expect I'll like the stonewashed appearance a little more.
Gent is my favorite of the collab knives so far. That said, the wait time on this may literally kill me.
I must know, there's more where it came from? i can't buy a new knife every month.. :)
hi love the Gent very much , and its a great knife too customize this is my Gent i customized

Love to see people tinkering with their knives to make them theirs. Great job!
Damn it! I just got my standard Gent a few weeks ago. Well...I guess I'm gonna own 2 Gents now :) . I 'd love the option to just buy the scales.
+1, would look much better with a satin/mirror blade.
sous13
Satin would be quite lovely, especially with this variant.
sous13
Switch dem scales...
The carbon fiber handle would go so well with the original satin finish blade, actually the wood would too..
massdrop01
I wish it was available in a carbon fiber and satin blade configuration. I'm not a fan of stonewashed blades. It's ok on some handles imo
Gunnersmate2
I have the black g10 scales version. Maybe we can trade just the blades? I actually was planning to acid wash mine. But maybe it'll be better to just swap blades
Not sure if I like the stonewashed blade. I've gone back and forth countless times on pulling the trigger for this knife. I do know I love my falcon.
Love my first-run Gent, and carry it as my office EDC more than anything else these days.
Was skeptical of the clip at first sight, but it has definitely grown on me. Now I really appreciate the discreteness of it.
I agree with many that adding some jimping to the flipper tab would be a real upgrade.
LOVE the new scale options, but wish the blade remained satin (or even polished for the rosewood). Not a huge fan of stonewash for my office EDC / gentleman’s carry. Maybe blade finish could be an option?
Lastly, like many others, I wish the scales were available seperately (but I’ve heard the official response on the subject and understand the situation)
Looks like I’m in for at least one (of each...?), and there may be a scale swap scheduled once I have the new knives in hand...
Can I just remove the pocket clip entirely and leave if off without compromising durability, function, etc?
lastop
Ive been using mine without the clip for a good month, way more classy IMO and it doesn't affect anything.
lastop
Sure, both options are great.
The original Gent has become my favorite EDC blade, but PLEASE add a jimp of some kind to the flipper tab! It would make it the perfect small folder.
SliceofRye
Lack of jimping is my only complaint with the Gent.
SliceofRye
All you need is a small file, a ruler, a sharpie and a clamp and you can have as many jimps as you want! :-)
I have a question. The gent I got in the last drop has bearings that rattle when I close the blade quickly but when I go really slow it doesn’t have any gritting or rattling. The pivot is adjusted to barely eliminate blade play. It has been rinsed out and oiled. i bought my brother a gent and his doesn’t do this. I’m thinking this is a manufacturing defect since the other 5 bearing flippers I have that are from multiple manufacturers including zt which uses the brass bearing washers also don’t do this. I tried to send in a message through the help desk but it keeps asking me if my question is answered by the automatic reply. Do you guys have rattling like this?
Load 17 more comments
Yes. I’m guessing they don’t do repairs but only replacements. It’s weird. I just washed it out and added lube and the rattling is back.
Final update - the rattling came back so I decided to open up the replacement that they sent and it is night and day. The action is better and smoother than the other one ever was. So I’m sending back the defective one. Maybe the washer was the wrong size? This one is just smoother and deploys much better and feels tighter and more precise than the other ever was. great customer service. Now I know what people were sayjng about we knives being able to make things well. But I’ve had this experience once with kizer also. I had one they had sent with a scratch across the bearing track which made it click. That was on a t1 I believe. Anyway I’m looking forward to the rosewood edition I’m up for now.
Gent has my favorite shape. But would it be possible to add jimpings on the flipper this time? Toooooo slippery during open actions... The only inconvenience (personally) to this perfect knife.
aaronanpku
Agreed. Massdrop sent a Gent to Nick Shabazz for review and that was his only major gripe with the knife. It would be very strange if it wasn't addressed - there seems to be plenty of time to do it before they ship.
OCoelhoPreto
@JonasHeineman will Massdrop kindly consider working with Ferrum for this option? :)
