I got my Thorn last week, so after a bit of pocket time I wanted to share my take on it. First, I understand it may fall into the love it or hate it category function, design and materials wise. I really like the distressed brass and the blade shape of the Thorn, the fact that it's different from the knives I currently own is the reason I went for the drop. The fit and finish is great, expect nothing less from Millit Knives, the action is smooth and the blade is sharp. The gold anodized spacer is a cool touch. The detent slip-joint keeps the blade closed and opened, obviously with less than standard slip-joint force, but it's also easy to open and close with one hand. I'm happy to be able to own and use a piece of Serge Panchenko's functional art and I hope to see more of his designs on MD in the future. Happy 2018!

tldr- Cool little knife! 😎





@BrainFlush I don't think he/she was being RUDE or NAIVE, he/she was being realistic. No way that knife is worth $275.00 I don't care who made it.

Doesn't really matter, it's what it costs and Serge has no issues finding buyers lol. Not everyone wants to just buy Kershaws.
Gorgeous.
Again no Spain delivery... :_(
I'm not into knives, but this is pratty cool looking.
If the scallop out of the blade was a functional finger choil, it would be a marked improvement.

Maybe get it for your kid. :⁠)
I have Serge's Bean slipjoint and enjoy it quite a bit. Gonna pass on the Thorn this time, but wanted to comment and say thanks MD for making Serge's work available. Keep it up!

Thanks TheHsza!
It's too rich for my blood, at this time of the year, but; I love the look and quality. Just want to show my appreciation for MD doing unique and interesting items, instead of another generic folder you could get anywhere. Kudos to the buy runner!
I've gone back and forth on this one. Love Serge's work. Price wouldn't be terrible if it was a full custom. Being a mid-tech I think there is room for a lower price from the manufacturer. However, this is an excellent price offered from MD. With the recent uptick in Chinese knife manufacturers (Kizer, Reate, etc.) finally paying attention to quality control it has me rethinking how much I'll pay for a knife just because it uses "good materials." These Chinese makers are using top notch materials and still not breaking the bank. If a knife maker is doing their blades by hand I say shoot for the moon on price. What is your time worth and so on. But when you have parts of your process automated and the number of items you push out increases it's time to come down on price a bit. I'm still going back and forth on this one...may end up pulling the trigger.
I really love the look of this lil guy, but the price is far too steep.
I like it. $275 seems high for the materials, but you're paying for the name and Serge's does demand premium prices (not without merit). Too rich for me so just expressing appreciation.
It's an interesting small knife but just not $275 interesting.
Honestly, it is an ugly blade when you think about it. Only it's mother or father could love it 😂
BUT! You really gotta love the designer's nontraditional approach!
I am in. Take a look around and you will find that Serge is true to his craft.
I guess this is more of a collectors knife than a practical EDC tool, that blade geometry is novel at best. I can appreciate the materials, though.
Nice knife and decent price. You may be able to match it with a discount code elsewhere, but ... maybe not. Alas - not in my budget.
Would have paid 27.50 for this. Not sure thought.

Don't be naive or rude.

Good luck getting a 154CM blade for $27.50, although $275 for a 154CM slipjoint is a little too much for me too.
