When closing, the shark fin-like flipper tab hits your finger out of the way before the blade makes contact with your finger, but still it takes some getting used to. Besides that it's still a cool slicer.

I have one wave,will be getting rid of it.not a very satisfying way to deploy a blade.I would try someone else’s wave before buying.
Does this knife come with both the box and a Spyderco case, or is the case in place of the box?
Almost. Pretty close. Pikal. Looks dangerous in good way !
I have one and it is indeed easily able to cut you when it's closed. It feels great in the hand though...
Don't be trippin' Get Tropen!
I've never used a "wave" myself, but man that hook looks aggressive, no? Hope your jeans are sturdy.

The little hook is for one hand opening, it’s called an Emerson hook ( with knife in pocket point down pull it out, catch the hook on your pocket & flip it open 👍

Yeah, just saying this one looks more aggressive (for lack of a better word) than most I've seen.... Looks like it could mangle fabric over time
Your bottle opener has a blade on it!
Look at the size of that lad.
Save a penny over Amazon, though Amazon ships free: https://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tropen-Folder-Polished-Handle/dp/B07GY4TJQ9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1547566082&sr=8-1&keywords=spyderco+Tropen+S30V Is it just me, or are the aggregate deals I remember finding on Massdrop in the days of yore more difficult to find? Seems like when they stopped offering a discount once a certain number of buyers committed they also stopped offering value compared to sites like Amazon.

I know Spyderco has rules on advertised pricing. Massdrop used to get around this by offering to lower your cost if you removed the "free" case from your order. That does not seem to be the case here. Maybe because it is shipping directly from Spyderco? It is a shame. I might have been interested it picking this one up. The Resilience fits my hand perfectly and have been looking for something similar with better steel and tip up option. I also like the Emerson opener. I may be spoiled now but I wish Spyderco would make s35vn the minimum for their higher end knives. I think they were using it briefly and switched back. Also wondering if that little bit of blade visible through the compression lock cutout will be an issue. And of course the price. I think this money is going towards the Protech/FF knife that drops tomorrow. Looks very nice, way better steel and the button lock sounds interesting.
Is this worth the money ?
Be careful with this one. The edge of the blade sticks out past the cut out for the compression lock and can easily cut you.

For those who haven't seen it, and since it's not on Massdrop, you can clearly see the blade next to the compression lock in this image: https://images.knifecenter.com/thumb/1500x1500/knifecenter/spyderco-knives/images/C237GP.jpg
