Hey everyone,
I just got a call from the lab that the steel in this knife tested as the D2 claimed by the manufacturer. When I have the complete analysis to share, I will post it here. We are please to be able to offer this reassurance to the community. Thanks for your patience.

Pimp Daddy Jonas with the full on lab results. Impressive!

Thank you very much. It is wonderful to have a business that genuinely cares about its customers and tries to answer their questions and addresses their concerns. I’m actually very shocked (in a good way) that you would take these steps to deal with these issue. In today’s world the old saying “The Customer is always right” has been forgotten, ignored or just simply done away with. Great job on your part. Proud to do business with you
I own both of these models, my box is a different layout and both models have cutouts and holes for both right and left tip up carry. (came with right handed clip installed, plus a left handed clip and a second right handed clip in the box)
Clearly some changes were made at some point... @JonasHeinemanCan you verify which version is being sold here? If it's the same as mine that might open you up to some lefty sales who skipped this before
Correction : T010 came with a spare righty clip, T020 just came with the righty clip installed and a lefty clip on the box. Both came with one extra set of clip screws

6+ ounces for a g10 & steel liner knife is kinda crazy. Additionally it seems a bit expensive for D2. The MSRP is absolutely absurd.
I would get the drop point if the red handled version was available.
yesterday I received a Proelia TX030TG knife and I am completely dissatisfied with the product. The presentation box and packaging is really nice. The sheath is really nice but the knife is very disappointing to say the least. The knife is way overly heavy and off balance for it's size. The opening action on the flipper is poor. The lock bar has no insert and sticks.I am not at all interested in sending it in for warrantee service because the knife is just not worth it. I tried to return it by contacting manufacturers warentee dept, no reply. Than, I wrote to Massdrop, but only got back a generic reply, so I gave the knife away!
Is the finish Satin on the drop point and Stonewash on the Tanto?
Ummm, yeah, so...... I just ordered these both on Amazon for $72 and $74 each (and change), with free prime shipping
But stupid retailers don't understand how geography works, so I had to ship them through my out of state sister. New York STATE is NOT New York CITY when it comes to shipping restrictions 🤬
Still, will get these way quicker and a little bit cheaper elsewhere
So I'm guessing that the pictures for the tanto blade are all inverse since the description says both are tip up right pocket carry only. It's cruel to tease the lefties.
Can anyone tell me what the blade finishes are?
Ok so I am not on this drop or that interested BUT I have to say that the drop point is very nice, reminiscent of the FF Falcon blade style. Still, I am commenting on the steel. D2 has been a hot item since 2017 if not earlier 2016 and for good reason. It’s an easier tool steel to get ridiculously sharp and hold an edge. I own a more expensive (shouldn’t be as expensive) D2 flipper and damn is it scary sharp. Yes it isn’t considered stainless aka corrosion resistent but if you own blades then DO YOUR DUTY and care for them. The same can be said of stainless blades like s35, vg10, n690, m390, elmax, etc. Take care of your blades an they will take care of you.

Good advise & info brother. Thank you
$72.71 at Amazon with prime shipping.
Shipping cost to NZ is to expensive ($20)... likely due to the product packaging. If you could get this packaged in a way to drop the shipping cost I'd be in.
Jonas, I am a lefty who carrys left front pocket tip up or down. It appears in the images the tanto is the only one with a reversable clip, is this the case?
Now that I've had this knife (Proelia TX020 Drop Point) for awhile and had a chance to use it and carry it, I really like it and I'm glad I purchased it. As for the detent issue that some have reported, mine doesn't have it. The detent on mine is near perfect - strong enough not to open unexpectedly or too easily, but light enough to flip open with no difficulty at all.
Amazon appears to have a cheaper price when you count free shipping, kinda kills this deal.
I like the design and the knife IS indeed a big knife. The problem I’ve heard And seen myself is the detent on this particular knife is Too loose. I recieved a new unit and the knife would, when turned facing demployment down, fall out of the detent as if it didnt exist. Anyone else have this problem? The knife itself is on bearings and very nicely designed.
I just received my knife. I am impressed with how much knife you get for such little money. It's a heavy knife with great flipping action and ergonomics. As for me, I won't get in the weeds weather it's exactly d2. For the money, it's an excellent buy.
D2 is US made, generally, so it seems hard to believe they could ship the bar stock to China, process it into a blade, and then ship it back to the US for $70.
HAAK
We sell knives for $80-$125 that are made with S35VN steel (by WE Knife) in China, so it's quite possible to do with a cheaper steel like D2.
HAAK
I mean Kizer is off making S35VN knives for as cheap as $70-80. That'd be the same story of bar stock from USA, NY going to China and then coming back.
So, doesn't seem that unbelievable?
So, do we know if the blade steal on this knife is D2? For that matter...how do you even know if the blade steal on your $400 Rike or Reate knives is actually M390??
DougFLA123
There are labs with tests for this (niton gun / XRF spectrometer), and we're working to make that happen so we know for ourselves. I have not yet seen any raw data to support or refute the claims being posted here.
Thanks for all the info from everyone. I've gotten a few knives off of here but after reading I may skip this drop even though I want it really bad lol and aslo I read under knives steal that D2 is only a 2 under corrosion resistance so even if it is really D2 it has a high rust factor ....but I still want it damn it lol
People its up to you to check if this knife is D2 steel because Massdrop is just the seller They don't no the Steel in this knife so Buyers be awear .

You're welcome, thanks for starting a lively conversation. Once again, if you do ever want to share the results of the test that you've claimed was done, we'd be glad to consider that. Without any evidence that other knives have been tested with different results, I think we'll just consider the case closed. I'm grateful for the opportunity to do some legwork on behalf of the community so people can purchase with confidence.

OK I moved on from this three months ago so move on I have decided not to buy Knifes from massdrop anymore thank you so please don't message me thank you
This message is to Jonas Heineman iam writing to you to follow up on our last discussion about the D2 Steel in this knife I was wanting to know what your outcome and what massdrop is going to do for the customers who believe that their D2 Steel in the knives is not real D2 steel i would be happy to get a reply before the new year Thank you
Tedable
I did not see this because I was not tagged. The knife is being sent for testing but we don't have results yet. Once again, if you would like for us to take your test into account when reviewing this, you are welcome to share the results with us. If we don't have that data to reference, we can't make any judgements about what it says.
Dose anyone know the finish on the Drop blade
Tedable
It sucks that they leave out an important detail like whether it’s a satin or stonewash finish! The pictures they’re displaying here could pass for either.
Too bad it isn't a deeper carry. I do a lot of hiking cross country and with a knife that isn't deep carry, snagging and pulling the knife out happens. I have lost 2 this way and only go with deep carry now, like Brous Blades etc. The D2 steels is good and holds a fine edge when heat treated correctly. I noticed someone said it rusts easily? Never had this issue at all. I like the satin finish. Have stone, acid wash etc but don't like black as it scars too easily but acid and satin hold up well.

This knife was tested at the the University of Kingston Ontario in their metal ology Department their tests show that there's only 8.5% chromium so is it real D2 steel maybe in China but not in Canada or the USA
Ted1463
I just posted our results above confirming that it's D2 according to AISI specs. If you have the test results that confirm the knife tested is the same one sold here, and an analysis of the chemical composition showing otherwise, we'd be glad to take that into consideration. Without any other complete info to work from, the best information that I have is the lab analysis that we had done, which seems to be conclusive that it is, in fact, D2 steel.
PS - I looked up that school, which is called Queen's University of Kingston, and they don't appear to have a "metal ology" department, or a metallurgy department for that matter. http://my.me.queensu.ca/ They do have a Mechanical and Materials Engineering program, but I didn't find info about testing facilities.
I understand made in China assembled USA. How about city and state?

Believe it's Chino, California @ least their website states that.
Can anyone confirm that the drop point model is the satin finish and not the stone wash finish?
neil.r
I have a stone finish and do not like it. Will take satin finish anytime.
Definitely hoping the black versions can be included at some point. :(
I think I might of found the replacement for my Ontario XM-2T. I lost it a month ago and I can't get it any more. I beat the living $n!t out of my knives and that knife had an awesomely thick blade to tackle all tasks.

Never had an issue with rust and my D2 knives are used around water and every day. Never any rust. Maybe what you have isn't correctly hardened etc.

Be careful with the steel hum D2 ???
So much dang D2 these days. Love the look of this, but there's no way I could carry it. As much as I sweat at work, this thing would never last.
Astrodinosaur
Its all D2 so they can charge more but is it real is the question
Tedable
Its not real D2 steel but they say that D2 steel from china is the same as D2 steel from USA look at were its assembled and you judge
*Bing*
I just showed these knife options to my better half, and she said: "I like the the curve blade and the swerved handle on the other. "
Combine the options, if that can happen, at this price, I might buy another one.
JAS - Just a Suggestion. :D

I thought the exact same thing tbh
