Right after the TX011 drop ended I noticed that they opened this drop for the TX021. Since I really prefer the TX021 blade shape, I reached out to Massdrop customer service asking if they could help me out by switching me to the new drop. I have been a long-time loyal Massdrop customer and have purchased a lot of knives through them. I asked them to kindly make an exception and allow for the exchange even though the drop had just ended. I was very disappointed to get a response with a fairly generic response about no cancellation after the drop ends. I think I need to take my business elsewhere since they don't care about trying to help keep customers happy. I was asking for a switch so they would still have a sale and it was hours after the drop ended not days or worse when they had shipped. To me it is a very reasonable request and I even emphasized that I understood that it would be a one time exception as it is not there standard practice. Bottom line is they don't seem to care. I am sharing this experience so that you can make an informed decision about dealing with Massdrop. You may save a couple of bucks (not always) but you are definitely losing on customer service. Up to you what is more important. Good luck to everyone. Cheers....
Ugh. This is actually a pretty good deal this time around at $60
The completionist in me says I need this to go with my TX010 & TX020....but do i? Lol
I never end up using those because they're so big, yet this one is smaller....but still looks chunky and heavy.... Hmmmmm, decisions, decisions....

I watched a video where a guy had to drill out the detent hole of a Rick Hinderer XM-18 knife (a $400+ knife), and the before of it not going in the hole, followed by the after of it snapping into the hole, was very interesting and satisfying. Although, you would think there must be a tiny bit of blade play when closed with the bigger detent hole. It’s unbelievable though...you shouldn’t have to drill out a $400+ detent hole. How does such a mis-alignment happen. The guy used a Kyocera 1/16” tungsten carbide 2 flute ballnose endmill drill bit.

On a custom or midtech knife, yeah, there's ZERO excuse for something like that not to get noticed. And for $400 that would damn sure be going back to the manufacturer to be fixed or exchanged. In theory there doesn't need to be any blade play in the closed position just because of a bigger hole, if it's drilled perfectly in the right spot. You're essentially making the hole it will be tight up against, any gap behind there will be a moot point because the stop pin will keep it from traveling further into the original hole But, it's a lot to ask of the common person to be able to decide on the correct placement and drill out the hole themselves in a case like this where being off a couple thousandths is the difference between weak detent, perfect detent, or sloppy blade play
D2 and G-10. Nothing about this screams "Spend $80 now!"
All in all it seems nice enough, but the Kizer Vanguard series (like the Kyre I have in my pocket right now) are a better value for the same materials and (arguably) better designs. Kizer did a bang-up job with the Kyre, Gemini, and Intrepid. I also have a Bad Dog on the way. All of these were between $40 and $60 on MD.

Side note: I like the fact that they made this in a <3.5" version, making it easier for many to carry.....but just realized it's more expensive than the original 3.75" TX020 🤔

I own the TX020 and the TX011 and I think they were both well worth the money. They are tanks that open and close very smoothly. They’re very well built with beautifully polished blades. Ball bearing pivots, razor sharp, perfect centering, feel great in hand. I prefer the blade of this TX021 (and my TX020) over my TX011 (which is a tanto style blade). I think if this gets down to $75, it’s a really great deal!
