I got this last drop, love it. Any chance of dropping it in tanto?
I'm tempted every time this knife drops but there also seems to be quality issues every time. Such a shame, my hummingbird is awesome

Im also very tempted, specially with the $80-$100 price drop from bladehq prices. but the hit or miss quality scares me a bit

I got one on the last drop, it's impeccable.
Got mine today. Needed some tweaking to the pivot to dial the centering in. Also I'm a little annoyed that the bottom screw is loctited shut.
Any suggestions on how to loosen the loctite? Ive heard a hair dryer works well. I've also heard that a soldering iron will get the job done.

Thread locking compound comes in a variety of formulations, each is overcome by a specific amount of torque. The compound should be chosen to be suitable for the fastener. When well chosen, the amount of torque necessary to break the compound is less than the amount that would mash up the head of the fastener... You shouldn't need to apply heat to break the compound.

The point of thread locking compound is not to permanently fix the fastener in place, but to stop it from coming loose through vibration during normal use.

Oh I'm well aware, I typically use blue myself. The red formulation (going by Loctite's coloration standards) is usually referred to as permanent. In the case of it's use, heat absolutely loosens the compound.

I was incorrect about that the type of thread locker by the way. I was eventually able to get it loose and clean the whole thing out, without resorting to additional heat.
can we get a 1707?
Picked it up in platinum, just wish there was pink or blue.

Self taught anodizing so I know anyone can do it; blue is very easy to achieve; plenty of tutorials on youtube and some materials gathering but it's very affordable. 3x 9volt batteries chained together will give you a blue akin to the blue found on a ZT0393. I bought a "working finish" pocket clip from DLT trading and anodized it myself; which was $20 cheaper than buying a pre-anodized clip. It has some wear but the color matches near perfectly.
I bought the Rike 1507 on a prior offering and was anxiously awaiting to receive it in the mail as I had my on the knife for a while but thought it was to high priced. The knife is well built, fit and finish was great, great materials but it will not deploy. It literally takes a pair of pliers to pull open the blade because of the detent is so tight the flipper tab is useless. I have disassembled the knife, cleaned, oiled, etc. but it did not have any affect on the problem. I thought about tying to modify it myself but have been reluctant as I am no pro and I don't want to essentially screw up to a point where I have ruined the knife.

I agree it should open at least as well as the mask drop falcon. Especially at the price

If you put any pressure on the lockbar while trying to deploy the knife it will not come out, the way I end up holding the knife most times is pinky and ring finger on the pocket clip and my middle finger on the handle just off the lockbar. When I first got my knife I naturally held it this way the first couple flips then later was trying to deploy it and was pressing the lockbar in and it would not come out at all. I've never had any issues with my knife but it's probably worth mentioning, I've owned this knife for a roughly 2 years and paid $300 for it, I bought mine before any were ever sold on Massdrop, from other comments seems like there are more issues with the Massdrop sold ones.
Looks really frisky, Rike does masterful anodizing too. Definitely worth grabbing one of their pens for the ano alone.
Yup, I'm in on this one. Hits all the points I like in a mid-tech. Got it in purple.
can we get the Rike Knife RK1507T Tanto Version?
Lefibonacci
I would definitely buy the Tanto version :p
Received mine and it had a rough action. Basically expected as the surface where the detent ball ride on the inner blade is not polished and needed to groove in. After lots of flipping and a little detent tuning (as it has the typical aggressive Rike detent) it is now perfect. By the way, mine came not very sharp. it cannot cut paper. Will be putting a mirror edge on it with my KME.

How is the lock up on yours?
Probablythelastmimsy
my lockup is great, about 20%, no lock stick. however, the detent on it makes it impossible to deploy single handedly, even after tinkering with it. it came sharp, just cannot deploy it. i also got the Thor 4, which is basically flawless
