I was browsing through comments in this thread related to previous drops of this knife, and I noticed a few saying that this was a great deal for a knife with M390 blade steel. And I dont dispute that necessarily, but if anyone is still looking for inexpensive M390 (and really, any self-respecting knife fiend ought to be looking for inexpensive M390 steel at all times, hence this post), dig on into the list of ended drops and request the Kizer Cutlery Mini Dorado Skully Flipper Knife Titanium. Here's the BladeHQ page for reference, but note that the listed price of $250 is not the drop price, nowhere near it; the MD price I paid, and that has been offered at least twice, and likely more, is $99: https://www.bladehq.com/item--Kizer-Cutlery-Mini-Dorado-Skully--50166
Now, the Rike 1504 and the Kizer Mini Skully aren't a perfectly congruent comparison by any means: the Skulky has a 3" blade. .75" shorter than the 1504; and there's no question the Rike knife is a much better looking knife overall. But both are flippers, both have full Ti bodies, and both are made in China, so if the question is down to the best possible price on a reputable maker's M390, well...not for the first time, Kizer is the best deal by a wide margin. $151 wide, to be precise.
Also, I love my mini Skully. It's one of two Kizers I own that gets regular pocket time, no small accomplishment these days, with competition from dozens of knives from my favorite brands like Pro-Tech, ZT, Boker, Spyderco, Mcusta, and a couple dozen Microtechs (for now), most of which have M390 blade steel. But even still, I carry my Skully--the mini, anyhow; it's big brother stays in the drawer.

99 is definitely a good price. you can also get cheap but good quality chinese m390/ti knifes on ebay such as the twosun knifes
The pix of this one show a leather or “leatherette”(?) pocket sheath and a cloth, but from the comments here it seems this knife doesn’t ship with either of those items. That’s shabby. Worse yet, this one has shipping charge. I recently bought MD knives that cost ~1/2 and ~1/3 of what this one costs. and neither had shipping charges, so the shipping charge here is even shabbier. FFS! Display some integrity and don’t show pix of what buyers don’t get when we order this knife. While you’re at it, lose the “Ships to US” obfuscation, be forthcoming and state what the shipping charge is in the write-up.
Does anyone know if Rike does it's serialization by color? I'm 109 with the blue.
Damn you Rike, why do two drops back to back like this... Now I'm gonna have to buy it.

It has it's issues (see my review if curious), butI'm actually really really enjoying it
I'll fix the detent eventually, but I've already been carrying it more then anything else since i got it

I've been carrying my Native 5 more than anything, it replaced my Delica in the rotation.
Quality & price seems okay. The problem with Rike is, some of the great designs is a bit too large at 8.75 inches overall, including this one. I think they'll probably be more popular if they are made a bit smaller so that it's more EDC friendly.
just received mine today. it is beautiful and seemingly flawless as far as fit and finish. it opens smoothly and looks great, i got the purple. i noticed i got NO.55 on the blade, im not sure how many were available in the first place. id be curious to know what number others got.
Interstellar13
I got the black and mine is No 74.
What is typical shipping cost on the 1504?
Had to join, I wants me some purple sexiness
Mine arrived with side-to-side blade play, scratches on the handle, a ding on the pocket clip (under the anodization), and a mushy detent. I put it side-by-side with my friend's 1504A that he bought from a well-known dealer, and they were different in a dozen ways, including the thickness of the blade , the pivot design, and the milling patterns on the handle.

Not mine.... @qedbbBut i read about issues like this with Rikes here more than any other brand it seems
qedbb
I had absolutely no quality issues with my 1504 last drop . . . already ordered another from this drop
I'm in on the blue one. Pictures show a leather pouch as well as the zipper case. Is this included? Haven't seen it mentioned in the earlier comments.
viraman
Is the leather pouch included I mean.
viraman
Just received the blue one. No leather sheath just black pouch. Massdrop.com should change the picture for the next drop. That said, knife is gorgeous and absolutely flawless.

To anyone considering this knife. This knife is fantastic for everyday carry ever since I got it it's been in my pocket and used and it requires minimal maintenance to stay sharp. Easy 9.5/10 stars. Minus .5 stars because it's super stiff out of the box but just by playing with it the first week it will loosen up. This deal is a killer for M390 steel and if I lost mine I'm 100% getting another. Amazing knife in every category.
Omg this is so beautiful. Wish I could afford it. More expensive than my CSGO knife :O
Just got my knife. My goodness is this gorgeous. It’s also really dang sharp out of the box. Comes with a nice lint free cleaning cloth too.
Any updates? I bought into this drop thinking "I can survive a month till this ships" now I'm grinding my teeth waiting for this thing. I get a little too excited over knives.

Does your pivot come loose after several openings and closings. The pivot loosening throws off the blade centering. How is the lockup? Mine looks like it’s barely catching.
DougFLA123
Mine is a very solid lock up and yes it does get a bit loose but not like it falls out I'm gonna put some loktite on mine but overall amazing knife so far
Trying to decide, two of these or one Thor2. So frustrating that I can't do both lol

Just got an email that some of the Falcon is being shipped out 2 months early. I should be on that list. Winning!

Nice! I do don't buy knives too often but the rike knife is a really good deal and I wanted blue but no the purple isn't that bad better than the gold and gray
Waited my time to see the comments on if it was the A and not B and every gobbled up the blue :( looks like I'm passing..
The blue one is beautiful, but I can't understand why buy a pocket knife for $219? the 33 of you guys that bought it - what do you plan on using it for? not trying to be condescending, if I bought a knife for that much it would probably go in a case and shown off. Otherwise, every other knife I have I use for whatever random task comes up.

My $2100 Todd Begg sits in display with a custom Bowie. My $500 and under go in my pocket until time to rotate. My EDCs range high for quality in parts, assembling, and standards, to the low just because I like the look and quality. And trust me, there is a difference between "buy 2 for $12" and good $100 knives. A huge difference between there on up.

$220 is cheap fora picket knife using high quality parts and high quality workmanship. That being said, $250 for a Chinese made knife (Or where ever in Asia it is from.) is the upper limit. People rave about the material, but going from the lowest quality steel, to the highest quality steel is <$20. So high quality steel isn't the reason for high end knives. The steel needed to make a knife blade is just around $5-20, even for the highest best steel. Look on knife maker supply sites for process of different steels. And remember the price is fora long piece that you can usually best several knives into. (A 2" wide by 48" long piece will yield 8-10 average knives. So if it's $200, it's really $20-25/knife, and that is very high quality steel. Also, divide that number by 3-4, and that's what the knife maker is paying, even less if it's a Chinese alloy analogous to a high end steel. Not including pattern welded/Damascus stock.) So if anyone, or any manufacturer, tells you, "The knife is really expensive because it uses better steel," they're full of shit. $200 is not very much money, for a high quality knife, either way. I just would not spend much more ona Chinese made knife. Why would you skimp out on something that is in your pocket all day everyday, that you use a lot?
I wrote to Massdrop costumer service about which Rike 1504 model it is. I hope they respond soon, there's only a few days left to decide whether to buy it or not. I'm interested in the sheepsfoot, not the drop point.
DougFLA123
Any news? Only 2 days left and I'll join the drop if it's the drop point, but not the sheepsfoot.
KevinL
I did hear back from two customer service people (because I wrote two separate emails on two different days). One said, "Unfortunately, we do not have the technical knowledge to provide you with the answer to your specific product question on the Rike Knife 1504", The other one said, "After taking a look at the order, it looks like the knife model for the drop in question is the 1504A".
So, it sounds like it is the sheepsfoot, which is the knife in the pictures, which is the one I was hoping it would be. M390 steel, Ceramic ball-bearing washers, $220...Incredible!
I agree with DougFLA123...If you watch Jim Skeltons review of Rike knives on youtube it shows massdrops model as 1504B. So which one is really offered here? Not sure if description and model number is matching the pictures... Or perhaps knifes on pictures were marked incorrectly? Also did Richard Wu adjusted the issue with the detent on this model since the video was made? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRdO4Db-25k#t=1086.6425962 All in all amazing design, price and superb steel on this one!
peterson
This was a great video. Given that we've now seen a second Rike drop go up, I'm really hoping to see the 1503 and 1507 on here at some point!
Is this the Rike 1504A (sheepsfoot) or the Rike 1504B (drop point)? The pictures all show the modified sheepsfoot, but all of the text refers to it as a drop point. Go to BladeHQ to see the difference. The difference is huge!
Beautiful knife....
Are these colors displayed in the pictures the exact colors we will receive because when I look across the Rike product line there are 2-3 different types of green and 2 different types of blue?
Durban
Should be pretty close, I wish the customers would provide better or at least 2 photos of each option.
Very nice. Why do I have no money :(
My heart says yes but my wallet says no.
This appears to be a really amazing offer, well done MassDrop! Lower than any price I can find + m390 steel? I've never been so tempted by a chinese knife.
No free shipping on $220??
Ketch
So? I costs to ship USPS
I'm so very tempted!!! its not often that you see m390 on MD.
The description is correct - Rike Knife confirmed m390. @nextcity @hawk45 @atbat82 @enianen
Show pictures of the lockbar side. Prove it has m390, and I will purchase.
There is currently one picture of the lockbar side in blue with the blade labeled m390. If that makes you more confident than the description alone.
Why? Is M390 the king of steels?
Too sci-fi looking for me. It's nice but not $200+ nice.
