Hi everyone, We’re back with an update on the Thresher Frame Lock knives. We’re happy to announce that they’ve arrived at the warehouse, have passed quality control checks and are on track to ship by the estimated ship date. You can expect to receive tracking information by next Friday. We’re excited for you to receive your knives! P.S. The most popular option was the Pelagic in Aqua!

Mine actually gets dropped off by USPS. Fedex hands it off I guess

I tried my tracking number with USPS and it said the label has been created and there still awaiting the package. I'm guessing the Tracking doesn't kick in until FedEx hands it over to USPS? I do remember something like that being talked about on a different drop months back if I'm not mistaken.

Hey folks, Just wanted to pop in again and thank You all again for the purchases and so far very positive feedback. Drop should reopen again soon, so I'm excited that people who missed out originally will have a chance to get some too, or people who really really like these can get more :) Remember one in none and two is one. And three is a party :D :D :D Thank You all so much, it really means a lot for me and my family to have such support and interest. You all have a wonderful Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! Best regards, Mike
Maybe I'm just dumb and dont know how to get to it, but it doesnt seem reviews can be posted yet. But I've been driving more or less non-stop since yesterday afternoon, and judging by the smell of the particular variety of arid steppe frozen cow pasture I'm now in, I'm midway through Wyoming with 4-5 hours to home (if the storm doesn't close the mountain passes; if that happens, have a nice new year and I'll catch you for the St. Patrick's Day party). I need a little break, so briefly: Outstanding knife. Top-notch almost everything; esp good is the blade deployment/pivot action, and the lock up. Regarding the former: I almost dropped the damn thing the first time I opened the blade as I wasnt expecting anything like the way it came flying out. Part of that is probably because the thumb studs are very accessible; I admit I was initially a little sad that it was not a flipper design, but I am a convert to Mr. Gavac's way of thinking that studs can be as good or better than a flipper. Don't sweat it if your detent is a bit too strong--mine wore in to be just right yesterday before I'd put 100 miles behind me. Lock-up could be used as an example of perfection. As in, take a pic of my knife, hand it out to knife makers, and tell them: make yours like this. The balance of the knife is also exceptional, as it falls directly where the index finger grips, which makes the knife's weight feel even front to back. The only thing so far not way above average is the pocket clip. It's almost too tight to get over my pocket seam; the shape is decent but nothing remarkable, and it rides deep but is not true "deep carry". Not terrible by any means, just not exceptional. I'd better get going as there seems to be a storm on the way, and I have 4-5 hrs and many mountains to get through. Last thing; A++ for the new Massdrop logo design, but was it supposed to be printed upside down on the zip case. I honestly was trying to pronounce 'DOYPS-saw'? 'DERP--so'? when I first saw it. Here are the pics I took yesterday in the car during short break:

Poor Quality Control Mine is definitely green, not aqua. Does not match the colors shown in the drop at all. I honestly prefer the green I got to the aqua, but anyone who is thinking of getting one can't rely on getting the color they ordered. The screws are also not the same color as the rest of the handle as they are in the sample pictures. Cool knife, but cannot recommend this maker unless they sort out their quality control issues.

my bad, i never noticed the description actually saying green/blue. that being said, i have 4 aquas here and they match the pictures pretty good. i still think its green though :) also its not "my knife" its my design it and it was executed by massdrop and made by we as stated in the description...
GavkoKnives
I got the Aqua Pelagic and I think the color is perfect! It is beautiful through and through! Perfect centering, perfect action, perfect lockup, perfect detent, razor sharp, etc, etc. WE made this knife about as perfect as it can be made! Great design Mike!
Does anyone else plan on standing down the massdrop logo on the knife?
The logo could of fit right next to the serial # in my opinion
Just got mine, both came perfect almost just drops shut...
Broberts02
I got an Aqua Pelagic and I'm thinking about a bronze one too, it's one of a few knives I would describe as 'perfect'. Nice knives are tools and design art and so to me there are lots of iterations of perfection for knives. This is one of them.
Awesome knife!

Just got mine Big Eye Sharkskin.... #019. I have to say.....HOLY SHIT THIS IS AWESOME!

I have BZ019
SonGoku
Nice, brother!
Is there upcoming drop for this???
Apexevo
Probably very soon. They'll drop the extra units. They have for all other collabs
Did anybody else have their aqua arrive looking quite green? The hardware on mine doesn’t match either as the pocket clip screws are green and the ones above are definitely blue.

They're all green... it's a green knife. It was and had always meant to have been that color.
Howlhatler
The screws still don’t match and seeing other people’s knives the color isn’t consistent.

How's that for distressed?
I would gladly pay Massdrop for better shipping than FedEx. I bet most of us would. Now its in transit to my town to the USPS. Supposed to be delivered today, but if USPS only got it 20 minutes ago that means I won’t get it on the promised delivery day. Sorely disappointed with the shipping method. Not disappointed enough to never buy a Massdrop made or only available through Massdrop item, but enough to look for availability elsewhere before I purchase from Massdrop.

It's not FedEx that's the problem on my end. It's the smartpost dual carrier crap that irritates the snot out of me. Pick a carrier! Go FedEx door to door or USPS priority mail door to door. None of this switching carriers mid route. This time it worked in my favor but usually it works against me. My tracking went from Saturday to Tuesday to Friday. So I actually got it 1 day earlier than originally projected, but damn near every other shipment from massdrop has been several days laye. It cannot actually be cheaper to ship this way. It's definitely irritating as hell from a customer POV.
Thorn74
I've even called fedex and they said they can't do anything about the dual carrier. That I have to wait for usps to receive the package for any sort of pick up/delivery.
Got my blade in today, love it. Only thing I wish was different, and would have paid extra for, was an option to get my blade in black vs satin with the sand color handle. Opens very nice and smooth and looks very good
Mine arrived tonight and I'm blown away! Amazing quality and finally a LH framelock in my collection.

Man I changed my mind. Just got my sharkskin pelagic today and its awesome. I'm glad I made the choice I did.
Rockytopwiz
I have the sharkskin pelagic too. I think I want the aqua over the sand. Or maybe just all three.
I seriously lucked out with shipping and got mine today! Everything I was hoping for. The anodization, especially on the hardware looks great, and that thin slicey blade geometry is fantastically sharp. Immediately kicked anything else out of my pocket. I do wish they swapped the logos on the blade for the lefty version but it’s understandably impractical. Still, on it’s merits as a knife alone, I’m truly impressed. Good luck to everybody else waiting!

Nice got mine in today in sand color. Would have been absolutely perfect if they had an option for the black blade vs satin in this, other than that I love it
The finish is very unique. It almost looks looks like a coating instead of Ano. but the edges are very slightly distressed. The handles were tumbled in a very mild abrasive. You really need to look close at the edges to even detect this. The color is far from anything else I own also. I'm actually happier than I thought I would be. When I purchased I felt i was taking a chance on the color but it's Awesome!
Why, Why, Why must you always use the slowest method of FedEx shipping. Why? I would gladly pay the 7.50 for USPS priority and not wait 2 weeks for FedEx. The thing I can’t stand the most about Massdrop is how long it takes for shipping to get here. Come on Massdrop. We wait 6 months for something. I could drive to you quicker from Oregon.

Yes. Stop using “Smartpost” and shipping in padded envelopes. I was lucky this time as they came pretty fast and were not smashed. Other times, not so much. Always great getting a $200 gift in a smashed box a week late.
Why doesnt my tracking number work?
Anyone else tracking number not working?
Irishdave
Yea
Irishdave
Wait a day or 2 and it will pop up. Sometimes fed ex or ups has a delay

Well that's music to my ears thanks.👊😎 My tracking number still says it's heading to a USPS location but if I remember correctly that's all I could see last time. Right up until the day I opened my mail box and saw my Gerry Mcginnis Rowdy 😲lol. Hopefully that's the case this time.
Why did you make such a beautiful and fun knife, sir
Are these going to be coming back as a drop any time soon?

That would be great!! Man thanks so much for the amazing reply and info. I really appreciate it, totally answered my question and more! Cheers

Not a problem Ben I was happy to help. I'm always bragging up MD to anybody that will listen. I'm definitely one of there biggest Fans but no one is perfect and I think whenever they get enough body's to fill the positions needed there definitely should be a little more interaction with customers on these drops with the longer waits. Just my opinion and I truly don't mean that as a criticism because I believe there still building this business and short on staff so it's understandable. I just think that's something to think about in the future.
Hi Everyone, Just a question... been away for a bit and missed the drop on this awesome design. I requested it, but is there a possibility I might still be able to grab one?? Thanks In Advance.
RAVEN_762
Hi, Yep, after the first drop orders are shipped massdrop should have some more available for purchase with essentially immediate shipping...
GavkoKnives
Hey Mike, Thank You for the response and awesome to hear... again Thank You!!!
I'm on vacation in Spain at the moment and just visited Sagrada Família...does this staircase remind anyone of something?

It was simply stunning. Pelagic is what I ordered as well and what it reminded me of, but it's more like a blend between the two milled versions. Immediately caught my eye though.
LukasM
I'm sure it did. I was just scrolling through looking at all the photos and comments wishing I'd get a notification that We knives had a huge burst in productivity and The Gavko Thresher is Completed and in the mail on its way. 😂
Hi folks, Mike here. Just want to drop in and say that i had the 3 prototypes here for few days now and im super happy with how they turned out. They are impressive knives if i can say so myself... Everything from the fit and finish, action, grind, construction... Really well executed. Im very excited that people can finally get much more affordable than my custom pieces or even midtech runs I had in the past, but still very high quality knife designed by me. I hope You all are too and I hope You'll enjoy them as much as im enjoying these 3 i have here... Thank You all! Best regards, Mike

I'm very glad to see your name up here on massdrop! I followed your knives and journey on YouTube from when you only made fixed blades, and I have always been a fan of the balance between function and flash of your work. Happy for you man. I hope you continue succeeding!
Well I have to say this is a first for me. I actually get to respond to my own question lol. I got to ask Mike if he would be making any smaller models with Massdrop in the future in a post after his YouTube video about this knife Tuesday. He told me if all goes well yes he would like to do other models with Massdrop and he also said he's thinking of somthing with a blade size of around 3.25" The first one isn't even built yet and I'm already pumped for the second. 😆
