even lower price on BHQ now, 185 for DLC version
Bro. Y'all are out of your minds. This knife is $214 on BladeHQ.
Spyderco is out of their minds. This is discontinued, but they are still pricing it this high. I think the Chinese are winning.
Can't ping anyone from massdrop, but this is discontinued as of now, clearance on large online retailers and cheaper there.
What would make this knife worth more than the Benchmade Osborne 940-2? Seems like the Benchmade with its Axis lock is a much better knife and at $170.00 it is a lot cheaper too. Is CTS-204 steel that much better than S30V?

I have both, yes cts204p is a reasonable step up in terms of edge holding from s30, its basically the chemical twin of m390 and very similar to 20cv.
For me the southard is more comfortable in hand than the 940 though the benchmade carries more nicely, especially with the standard clip on the spyderco (I've swapped mine out for a deep carry job)
The southard is being discontinued by spyderco this year so their may be some discounts available, though no doubt price gouging will commence when stocks dry up
The Southard is one of the Spyderco's 2017 discontinued models. You can find these knives at the major online knife retailers (bladehq knifecenter eetc.) for $214.99 for the brown and 224.99 for the black version
The Southard is a cool Spyderco knife, great fit and finish, and a pretty smooth action. I do think you will find better value in ZT or Kizer flipper
It's 40$ cheaper on blade hq
Not a deal.
given all of the ongoing drop out there i.e. Kizer with similar material and better fit & finish for 1/2 the price, this one isn't really as enticing. TBH Spyderco should consider reviewing their pricing policy for their TW/JP made models as some of them are way more expensive than their Golden Colorado made model. I personally prefer the Golden made models and i feel like the quality is as high, if not better, especially their Sebenza style pivot bushing. For about $150 i can get an S110V Paramilitary 2 which IMO is better than the Southard in every aspect.

A agree about the ZT 0920, but that's not just a few $ differenc. This drop @ $124 is half the price of the ZT. That's what made my mind up. The best hands on customer service is Reat. they are just getting to expensive
Sorry, I don't follow.
I know the Taichung knives are well made as I mentioned earlier. I also know there are other well made Chinese brands Like WE and Reate.
I just don't think the Southard is a good VALUE.
Someone said lets see the print on the blade ........... Speak and ye shall receive

Well ,since we are discussing here. this is my 2 cents worth. Mass Drop . I know there's something unique about this particular one. But the price has no Mass quanitation to it as far as the Drop is concerned. I love me some Spyderco's all day. I have really lusted after this particular one, except whenever Spyderco puts someone else's name on it . $100.oo more than a standard Spidy price $270. to $300. Buck knife. Your out wilderness walking or doing your job like I was one day and , When all of a sudden,,where's my pocket knife ?.....Anyhow back to the Southard. Take a $30. test drive . ali exp . Tried to load a video but couldn't ..oh yea the pocket knife I lost . Found it smashed down into the asphalt at a station I had to deliver fuel to earlier that day. Dug all the parts out of the asphalt mailed them back to Cold Steel and they rebuilt it and it still has the same blade...

Buy their Paramilitary series
DDro
+1 on the Paramilitary series. I have one in S35VN and one in S110V, both great knives and made here in the good ol U S of A.
Oh and you can have two of them for the price of this knife.
Not much of a massdrop. What's the (drop) point?

More like "Do we care? Are we caring about that?" ;) I think there's multiple points being missed around here...

Seems like the definition of "massdrop" means 'mass quantities purchased = drop in price'. I know I wouldn't shop here for some comparable retail price, with the wait times involved. Hence 'raison d'etre'. Volume of sales = more profit, regardless of customer savings?
I've been lusting for this knife for a long, long time. But with the current rate of currency exchange (I am in 🇨🇦 ), my wallet is shriveled in a fetal position in the corner of the room.
Great knife. Wrong price.
I'm sorry but even at the lower price this is the normal asking price for this knife . Not a rip off or anything, but not noteworthy.. I was hoping.

@Motorrad @rdtshaw @DDro @jacal01 : The culprits are Spyderco themselves, who bar retailers and distributors from discounting the knives (I think they can do like a five bucks discount 😒, then that's it). Boo.
rdtshaw
yeah last time I saw it offered here it was 220 iirc. I have been watching massdrop waiting for this to comeback for awhile too.
Really nice looking knife. I'm now spoiled by Kizer pricing; this seem so expensive....
This isn't US made IIRC like some of their other knives so that excuse goes away...

I know, bought a PM3 on the other drop... would love to buy this one but the math doesn't work in my head...
Lol, you think the Manix exhibits better fit and finish than the Ethnic series or the Sage series?
The Hungarian is damn near a work of art, and the Sage/Slysz knives built there are some of Spyderco's best works.
Golden does great work, but the designs produced there are not coming out better because they are made in Colorado, they are just different than the Taichung offerings.
The Taichung knives tend to have equal or greater finish work compared to the Golden knives.
Mine came in yesterday. I absolutely love it. Feels like a fixed blade when open and the flip is so smooth and nice. Went for black and black and it's so epic looking. New favorite knife by a long shot. @Brad_southard you and Spyderco knocked it out of the park
What was the price guys? Ended before I checked today's email.

why did price go up so much in latest drop; probably MAP BS
DDro
was wondering the same thing. Didn't have the dough for the last drop, wont have it for this one either. Guess some things weren't meant to be....
Wow, that was too fast, just got home from work Please do another drop with more than 28 knives.
It would be nice to be able to see the price of the deals that sell out SUPER fast. I get on and see a nice knife...get kind of excited...click said knife...drop has ended...limited to 28 knives lol it must of been a damn good deal lol

Black was 208 after shipping Satin/Brown was 198
Justcalmdown06
Damn.....Thank you for letting me know
Sir's and Madam's that are regulating this site. I have acquired one of the pieces marketed by Mass Drop. I saved maybe $3.oo bucks. I have run across other items of intrest, but upon further investigation realize the savings is not that great. I have read that these items you offer are not the standard fair that is available to the public at large, but those details are not a few dollar deal breaker. I will keep watching ,and offering my 2 cents worth. Not that it matters but it is

Why are you posting watch pictures on a knife discussion?
TortoiseThunder
Cause watches are good too, Aren't they just more of the toys we like ? man I might put a picture up of some girls I'd like
I love this knife! So much so that I bought both styles. The belly on it makes it a great slicer. I actually just lost the brown one a few months ago and I'm considering replacing it...
I had passed on this knife so many times because I didn't like the look/style of it, but I recently got one new but without the box on ebay for $158.00, and I gotta say, I love this knife. Lockbar was a bit sticky at first but that's gone away. I wish it had a steel insert on the lockbar. As much as I love it, I don't see it as being worth anything north of what I payed for it. I guess the blade steel is responsible for the price? Great knife though.
i bought this knife.

10/6 Amazon standard model is $198.66 Black model is $239.99 I have wanted a Southard But I already spent my Wad for the month.
I ordered the black version but I am wondering if I should get the regular version. This is my first Southard. Does the uncovered blade look better on this knife.

As long as the black coating is Spyderco's DLC (diamond-like coating), its you should be good. It's strong and wears extremely well. I prefer neutral colors personally, and dyed my first Southard scales. From the stock brown, I colored the G-10 scales jet black. Honestly, you'll likely be fine with either. Personal preference.
