If Spyderco knows one thing it's steel.. they're one of if not the best production knife manufacturers out, that said I don't see a spyder hole.. I'm out. All jokes aside though do people really order from mass drop? I mean prices are barely under Amazon's/other retailers and takes months to get.. I don't get it.

Certainly starting to wonder. Some of the things I have purchased have been exclusives or hard to find elsewhere. They used to have Paramilitary2s for $100 which was a great deal but now that Spyderco changed their pricing they can't sell them that cheap. There are some things that I have bought that have been $10-20-50 cheaper than other retailers it just depends on the deal. But like I said, they should just stop selling Spyderco because its not worth the wait for the same Minimum Advertised Price as other retailers without a big wait.

If Massdrop is selling single knives than typically Amazon or other retailers will have cheaper prices for the given Spyderco knife. However, when they have Spyderco Blue Boxes, typically the chances of getting an upgrade and/or bonus sweetens the deal.
Of course the disadvantage is you are at the mercy of 'Lady Luck' so to say.
For those being so critical of these knives, you obviously are more concerned with looks than quality or value.  Perhaps you should try them before showing lack of knowledge about knives.  I have numerous high quality Japanese and German kitchen knives that don't cut any better.  Are these a $100 or $200 dollar knife?  NO, they are not intended to be.  They are however very good knives at a reasonable price.

I'd think Spyderco's intention was to bring back their line of kitchen knives they use to sell at a reasonable price. At the same time when compared to Victorianox, they share the 'No Frills' mentality and trade that off in order to bring us a blade with better steel or a super easy to clean & sharpen tool.
They recently introduced a kitchen knife is VG-10 with a slick 'Coran' handle for those who value quality and a pretty knife.

Roger that, I'm familiar with Spyderco's other kitchen knives as I've been a Spydie nut for years.  I didn't pick up the new VG-10 model as I have all the kitchen knives I could ever use.  Still hoping Spyderco comes out with a Phil Wilson design fillet knife to go with the Southfork and Sprig.  I would buy several of these as gifts for family members.
Sooo I'm still waiting for a 10 in chefs knife to drop here :P. (Like a Victorinox )
These knives are ugly and not ergonomic . Massdrop please bring us some quality kitchen knives like Yaxell, Shun, Kasumi, or Miyambi.

I genuinely looked for the Rockwell rating for that steel but didn't find it. I found a lot of comparisons to VG10 as someone noted this steel was chosen to be "different" or special. I do love my Spyderco pocket knives, and enjoy having some Spyderco in my kitchen as well.
As I/others said, the handles leave a lot to be desired in the looks department but they are nicely ergonomic and very grippy.

According to CliffStamp and ZKnives, MBS-26 has similar performance to VG10 and is more flexible given the same hardness. The Spyderco Utility knife I gave as an engagement gift was scary sharp compared to my Delicas' in VG10, though not as sharp as the one in ZDP-189. The knife was both very thin and has enough flex to give semiflexible fillet knives a run for its money.
Masahiro should be the supplier of the MBS-26 steel and probably makes the kitchen knives for Spyderco. Masahiro knives, as far as I can find, appear to have between a 58-60 HRC. From the limited time sharpening the K04, the knife is very easy to touch up on a Sharpmaker.
If only this set had a cleaver, would make it complete. I like Chinese cleavers that victorianox, etc make which I find very versatile https://www.knifemerchant.com/products.asp?productLine=60
The total for these shipped on Amazon is $102.52. Here $106.75. I fail to see why I would even consider this.

I think it has to do with Spyderco's recent change to MAP pricing system. We used to see Paramilitary2s on here for $100 ... now everywhere they are $135. (DLC blade coated ones)
:(
Excellent deal, at least considering $1,234,350,000 MSRP .
fan-thomas
I can't afford to NOT buy it. I just better be able to make like $1,000,000,000 on eBay.
dstockbridge
Thanks for the MSRP catch @fan-thomas and @dstockbridge !! Obviously that's a bit off....!
Spyderco never heard of them. As a chef i wouldnt use these at all. The metal is cheap like the 15$ knifes at walmart are made of better. Is that a plastic handle? It is.. but for that price go with shun youll be happier.

unfortunately, your opinion here is clouded in ignorance of how knives are made. I don't blame you since most aren't familiar with the process. These knives are made in Japan by a knife shop that does excellent heat treatment. I own several of these knives, the Santoku is one of my very favorite kitchen knives and everyone who has ever used it has wanted one, as well. It holds an edge well, is stainless, has enough toughness, and can take a keen edge. These knives aren't lookers, they're designed for use. The handle is comfortable and cleans up well. Knives from Shun and the like are more expensive and look nicer, but IMO they're far worse in use. I do have a few custom kitchen knives I like a bit better, but not by much and they cost far more.

You are a genuinely clueless troll. Crawl back in your hole.
These are excellent knives, very easy to sharpen and hold their edge reasonably well.  They can be bought at many online knife dealers about the same price as this drop.  If you order these, you should also get the K09PBK  which is a small paring/garnishing scalpel of a knife.  Excellent for preparing fruit, strawberries and garnishes.  As with all good knives they should be hand washed and dried...no dishwasher.  My wife and I have prepared gallons of ambrosia for gifts with these knives.   Will be giving the small paring knife in this set to friends and family as Christmas gifts.   Great knives
$1.2 billion MSRP... really?
I am a big Spyderco fan, but I would like to see a review by someone who owns one of these, are they any good? Also, they should throw a Spyderco hole in there just so people know this is not a normal kitchen knife set (and show off the trademark).

I think putting the signature Spyderco hole on a kitchen knife would probably encourage the growth of mold, bacteria, etc. Not exactly something you'd want to happen in a knife for use in a kitchen. That aside it would take a little more effort to clean, especially when you look at the scallops on most Santoku knives as an example. Aesthetically, it would go with the brand and look great, though not practical for what the knives are intended for.
And yes, the Spyderco kitchen knives are scary sharp out of the box. I managed a few minor cuts when handling the knife carefully. In my opinion, the factory sharpness is better than most of their folding knives in VG10 (not ZDP-189).

I own these 3, plus the cook’s knife with the corian handle. They are all excellent knives. They come razor sharp from the factory. VG 10 steel was conceived for professionals use in kitchen knives. It works very well for that purpose. These are not cleavers. That is to say they function well for slicing, chopping, dicing and the like but they aren’t a thick heavy blade. I use mine in the kitchen whenever I‘m cooking which is several times a week. Easy to maintain the edge on these with the Sharpmaker from Spyderco.
<facepalm>
Are these any good? Or just a gimic.

Thanks ... Been thinking that the price is right on these and I know so many people who like thinner stock blades.
Henckels? totally different blade here. Have not used German style knives for years since using the thinner, more functional Japanese style. The more accurate statement would be something like: 'we're not talking Shun or Mac here' and even that fails due to the steel they're using here.
The MSRP needs to be updated before I could even begin to consider joining.
Doesn't help that Massdrop won't ship knives to/in the U.S.

Excellent! Thanks for the clarification. Still not participating until the MSRP is corrected. Don't intend to encourage that kind of sloppy documentation.

Hey @DaManDOH @CobraChris - Thanks for pointing it out the MSRP issue. And yes, this ships domestically and internationally...enjoy!
I checked on spyderco site and looks like the two smaller knives are 49.95 each and the big one is 99.99.
Cukedaddy
As far as I can tell, the 4'' Paring Knife is $39,95, the 6'' Utility Knife is $49,95 and the Santoku is $79,95. So you get roughly 41% off.
$99.99 $1,234,350,000 MSRP
How can anyone refuse?
Buying here and selling on eBay to help settle the national debt.
I was going to say the same thing... Great discount huh?
HAHAHA that MSRP though...
