If it had a fancy steel, I could be tempted...
What I'm really interested in, is the pen, whats the pen?

I dig this knife, but it's not a good value to me. You can get so much knife at this price point these days. I wish it had a premium steel. It would be so much easier to justify the cost.

Good catch but it's sold out now. It's sold out pretty much everywhere now. If you've been waiting, it's probably time to act. It still seems expensive for materials to me, but For whatever reason, seki Spydercos in g10 are always super expensive. This is only about $10 more than a g10/vg10 dragonfly.

Bladehq should send me a commission check! ;)
Before it was discontinued the price on this one was around $175 or more in a lot of places.
I'm not saying that makes $130 a cheap price or even a good deal. Personally though, I wanted this knife from the moment it came out but the price was way too high. For someone like me who had eyes on this knife and couldn't afford it before, the $130 price point, though still not cheap, makes getting this model possible.
Now hopefully it doesn't suck hahaha.
Spyderco must be tripping some major ballsack if they think that this knife worth as listed at $359.95 on g10, steel liners, and under 3 inches of VG10 with just a little dab of carbon fiber. At $130.00 this is about what it is worth, sorry to say, Massdrop.

Ha... was just thinking the same. A sub-3" VG10 knife ain't worth much over $100. I don't care who designed it or if it has a couple square inches of cf
OK...now the photo of the item shipped is the knife WITH the storage case? I gotta know!
Who let Benchmade set the MSRP on this guy?
I’m really on the fence on this one. I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth the price point conpared to what you can get in the competition. I’ll likely watch a couple YouTube reviews before making my final decision. For those of you who miss it or may want to grab it later, here’s a close price point with free shipping:

No pouch with this one...

I canceled my order and am done with MassDrop. Too many items of crap quality and not much of a price savings.
DonPerreault
The culprit here is Spyderco, with their pricing constraints put on resellers. None of Massdrop's fault.
I guess I'm not seeing the value in this one either, can anyone enlighten me?
Aside from the fact that there's no option this time for lowering the cost by dropping the carry case.... I paid less then this for the yojimbo 2 here. Larger blade, more expensive blade material (CPM-S30V), also g10 scales. Only thing I see to up the price here is a small bit of CF, but not even enough of that to make up the difference in blade material costs?

Hmm well, there is a decent discussion on it to be found here. https://www.spyderco.com/forumII/viewtopic.php?t=71576

Lol great, just what I needed, a whole thread full of enablers hahaha
Funny, one thing I find in googling is some people complaining about the same thing you're praising. That the polish makes it a little too slippery for handling a small knife. Different strokes, right? :) Anyway, I think I'm going to take a pass, but it's been fun talking about what goes into these things beyond just raw materials
Same exact price at Knife Center and BladeHQ and lower at Amazon.

$159.00 at Amazon, No Case.
I love this design and execution- got to play with one at SHOT show. And Pete Carey is a awesome dude. I'd be in one this drop, but I just scored one of his customs ( #humblebrag ) - but seriously, it's a nice knife for the price.
The Spyderco Firefly is a beautiful piece of work, highly recommended with two caveats:
Take note of the size -- it's small. My sweet spot for pocket-carrying is blades 2.75- 3 inches long so this is perfect for me. YMMV.
Also, as others have pointed out, Spyderco, Benchmade and other knife makers use MAP pricing -- you can get the same price just about anywhere.
This isn't a deal mass drop. All other retailers offer this for the exact same price. Disappointed again .
TheKlamps
Then be prepared to be disappointed for all Spyderco drops. Massdrop cannot quote below the Spyderco MAP price. The best bet would be to decline the pouch and save $15.
It's a cute knife, but $200 for VG-10? I guess I don't have the budget to be a collector :/
Karis
There's a bit of carbon fiber in there as well. But yeah, it's not a user knife.
Karis
My questions exactly. $200 for a G10 VG10 with a hint of CF, seriously? I am no Spyderco expert so I wouldn't know if this knife might be this costly for some other reasons.
Description says case opt-out is -$25, but the order page says -$15.

Yeah, very few Spyderco drops are amazing must-haves, partly due to Spyderco MAP policy, and partly due to Massdrop being a company that presumably desires to make money :)
cpl1
Can't be mad at them for that lol. I was just made aware of the MAP policy in the delica drop which I went in on. Since I didn't have one I have nothing to lose but I can see how it was not worth it for some. This deal though does seem like a good option for someone who was already in the market for one of these.

Sometimes the deals aren't actually a deal. Pays to be a smart shopper, this knife is cheaper in some locations and at best the same as most web retailers. Is Massdrop conforming to MAP now? If so, what's the point of offering Spydercos anymore?
NicktheKnife
I think they are conforming to MAP. Wont be buying anymore off MD..can get the same prices elsewhere and a lot quicker shipping to boot. The only Spydies it will make sense to buy off MD from now on are the discontinued models..MAP doesn't apply to them.
If the case is complimentary then why the $25.00 discount if you choose not to want it? Definition of Complimentary: given or supplied free of charge: a complimentary bottle of wine.
Just curious, it is a gorgeous looking knife. However, it is cheaper on Amazon, must be the complimentary case ;)
Still Love MassDrop!
Knife Center price + free kitchen shears and knife cloth + free shipping = Massdrop fail. Sorry guys. I'm not trying to be over critical, especially considering all the great deals you usually bring us, but this is rather meh.
Actually, Spyderco has a MAP of 60% of MSRP on most if not all knives, hence the 40% discount. I imagine that making the case optional gives Massdrop a way around that issue.
I believe the case is what's adding to the price.
Email from Massdrop shows a spyderco case next to it, but there is no mention of a case on the website. Also, this is being sold from Amazon with Prime shipping for $183.24. What gives Massdrop?
Onionman
Simply because not everyone lives in the States.
Knifecenter has this for the same price. Why didn't this get a better discount?

Good price but I'd very be careful buying Spydercos off Amazon..quite a few fakes have bought off that site.
Dear Massdrop, When you are taking photos for folding knife sales, please take a top down picture of the open knife. I like to see the folding and locking mechanism. Thanks.
karlthebaer
They're most likely stock photos sent from the manufacturer.

Nope the knife is in the office. As the lowly IT guy, I can assure you it's a pretty awesome knife. Feels really good in your hand and the orange pops so nicely.
