How do we know MassDrop is going to send out the knife that they are advertising on here? I was just duped by MassDrop on the last order, not sending the product which they listed. How can you and I be sure this isn't going to happen again?

Well I emailed MassDrop about the problem and was totally ignored. Maybe they will see these complaints and finally address it.

I've also heard they don't reply on weekends I believe. I'm sure it's gonna take then a day or two to figure out how to handle that one.... But don't want to start a whole new conversation about that here.

If you're interested in this knife I'd be confident you'll get the one you see. I doubt Rike has changed the model
I would love to get a Rike or WE, but sadly they dont make their knives lefty friendly

None of their nicer knives have a reversable clip. i can use a frame lock fine with my left hand, but i dont want to have to switch hands after putting it out of my pocket
The massdrop Gavko/ Ferrum Forge collaboration will have a lefty version. 🖖
A very nice looking knife but a bit too expensive for Chinese made, particularly when you have a Benchmade USA made integral for the same price

I implore you to check out knives of the same high end production level from other brands like shirogorov. This is a much cheaper knife at the same quality level. Second hand will always be cheaper but the more expensive the knife, the more people make knock offs that look almost the same. Just be careful who you buy from

I can't vouch for the individual quality of Rike, but they're midtech.
Benchmade is not midtech. And btw they have trash QA. No way would I ever buy one of their Gold class knives.

Their QA is too low to use steel like M390 or S90V, etc. As those steels have to done exactly right or they end up trash and worse than generic S35VN.
Furthermore, you won't get a midtech experience from Benchmade.

and FYI, it doesn't matter where a midtech knife is made. Midtech knives are done mostly by machine, and any parts done by hand are done by the master machinist, effectively custom.

and FYI, much like Reate knives, the reason Rike is made in China, is because the master machinist who owns the company is Chinese. These knives are not outsourced, they're made in the home-country of their creator.
And thickness of blade...

Sorry meant I like to see photos showing thickness of blade...
I actually was going to cancel this knife because of the delay. I intended on purchasing the Thor 1 for a retiring employee as a departing gift. MassDrop was accomadting and told me to refuse it when it had arrived.

When it arrived today, I couldn't resist opening the package. Good looking knife considering it has tango blade, which I had forgot that it had the Tanto blade or wouldn't have opened it. Anyway, knife seem to be a decent knife, it is big and a little over priced for a production knife that seems to be everywhere now a day. Since I opened it, I wouldn't have minded so much to keep in my collection if it was not so oversold.

My **REAL** serious complaint is when opening the package I got a instantaneous distinct moldy scent. Upon inspection it seems to be coming mostly from the pouch but has adhered itself to the knife, wow it is horrible and I generally can't smell at all. I stepped in dog shit last week and didn't know it until my wife told me I walked all over the house with it on my shoes and didn't even realize it. We had to have the carpets cleaned.

I am curious if anybody else has smelt this horrendous moldy smell. I can't be the only person and would think the whole batch would have the smell. Please respond if you are smelling the mold as I am.

A lot of things I get from China have that smell... specifically range bags, shooting accessories, etc.

its almost like like a moldy, Smokey smell...
DonPerreault
I am not sure what the smell is but its very difficult to get rid of. Its on a lot of Chinese knives I have received. I think they wipe it down with a chemical and by the time we get it all packed and no air to allow it to dissipate, it seems to stay and it takes for ages to go away. Originally I thought it was just a smell I couldn't get out of my nose but my wife also smells it.
Very very nice knife. Would love to see more knives with the same steel on MD.
I own a Thor2 and Thor4, I highly recommend both. Rike are great in my books

Lucky you!!!!
For anybody getting the sighs over this, but cramps on the price - I have 2 suggestions. Rike makes knives not sold in the US which can be purchased through DHGate, Alibaba, Fastech and Gearbest. The first one is called the Rike 1701, with the same CF scales and finish you see here. It's a larger version of their 1504s, and is NOT an integral. It's around $170 at DH and Ali.

The second is sold as the Thor 3BS I believe, but is known for US import as the HX Outdoors ZD-006. (the ZD-005 is a Lionsteel T.R.E.) These can be had for about $130 and even less at FT and GB. Like the 1701, it's not an integral, but a heck of a lot of knife for the money. Integrals are fantastic, and I believe we're just seeing the tip of the iceberg. Rike builds great stuff. Below are reviews, and a direct comparison. There are many more on youtube - but most are Russian!

The Thor 1 is an amazing knife, and worth the price for a flawless integral. Fit and finish is beyond reproach.
