I own 6 WE folders, and they're fantastic, but this one... just not feeling it. Now, if they did a drop on the new Slipstream, Nitida or Balaenoptera, I'd be down. Hell, even their budget lineup would work too.

They debuted the Nitida (back before it had name): https://www.massdrop.com/buy/we-knife-707 Hit the request button and maybe it'll come back.
This looks like an anime knife for some reason.
This blade profile must be a pain to sharpen, especially with a lansky.
Didn't Massdrop have some exclusive deal to get new releases from We Knife? I guess that didn't work out. I wonder if we'll see any of the newest models here like the Balaenoptera.
EDIT: well never mind, they debuted the Sea Monster at least
This drop isn't retail 6 people need to join for the drop to happen and when that happens the price goes down to $240 so it's $10 cheaper and it won't take a month massdrop has much better shipping now.

$10 off a $250 item is not a meaningful discount, and their shipping is still weeks or months, drop depending, rather than days like any other retailer.

Yea I know $10 isn't much but In my opinion massdrop has much better customer service, the bestech knife I had they took back and gave me a full refund. On bladeHQ there is a restocking fee and you only get store credit.
$249.05 elsewhere and you dont have to wait 30+ days.
Why waste theirs and our time with a retail price drop? It makes no sense!
Retail price. Is this a joke?
Why would we join this drop at full retail price, with typical slow shipping?
I'm curious, this is a readily available WE model and I don't get this drop, at all.
Why organize it?
@Tyler , any chance of this re-dropping? I have a buddy at work that would die for one, almost literally.

It's back.
I got mine day before yesterday! It's an awesome knife and well worth the price and wait! The 616's are finally starting to hit the online retailers but the MassDrop price was better than anywhere else. I'm amazed at how much WE has done so quickly!

I was in the first group, first 500 or whatever, I think they try to just do two shipments.
Damn. I haven't been on this site for a while...life/work got busy. :D But I've put myself on the request list for these and hopefully I'll snatch at least one of them when the next drop comes. It's particular hard to buy anything over $100 on this site if you are in a country where your currency is extremely de-valued to the mighty $US dollar, not to mention ridiculous import fees.
Great recommendation. :D
Anyone else's shipment stuck in New York for 5 days now? :(

I've seen some photos on a forum of at least one customer who got theirs already
ChrisHarkins
Damn it. Well, I'll be contacting USPS and see what's up. Thanks for the heads up!
Just about there! We've been in touch with the vendor regarding the group's order and they've let us know that they are still working to gather and pack the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is en route to us!
Expect another update from us on 1/3 or sooner if something comes up.

OK, I'm in. Did we manage to run off all the haters? This thread sure got quiet...
I can't wait to see this knife in hand. One of my most anticipated for a while!
I don't think I'll be able to resist the black/gold with black/satin blade! I'm definitely in this drop, still trying to figure out color pattern. What's worse is the WE 615 Simon Crafts Cirrus just popped up and I need that knife too! Too many great knives! WE needs to slow down!
For those of you here to argue Race or Nationality or Sustained Ignorance, please find another place to post. At this point the discussion needs to be about THIS knife...and this is one awesome, hawt knife.
Hackenslash
Indeed, as much as Simon is a famous kite designer, personally the color itself plays a huge part in making different elements of the design "pop". Perhaps its the blend yellow black-ground Massdrop used. From those pictures, I would be surprised if any of the current orders are NOT black/gold with black/satin.
Yet again, nationalists storm the page of a Chinese made midtech knife to complain that it's not made by Bob in Idaho. I really don't get why they keep appearing time after time. You trying to force your opinion on other people doesn't contribute anything to the discussion.
Here's a video for the haters. Jim mentions We Knives in this video. however its not a we knife being reviewed.

The 616 isnt in this video but it goes over many of the models and what to expect.

Looks kick ass to me!

BEWARE! The overall majority of sniping and trolling takes place here, in "Everyday Carry." Everyone is entitled to an opinion but insults and pejorative missives are out of line and immature. If you don't approve of someone's opinion, too bad....IT'S AN OPINION! ALL countries on the planet manufacture GREAT products and POOR products. Instead of attacking someone on a personal level....get off your collective arses and do your own research. Cut the crap.
If anyone is unsure about this company, I myself bought a WE knife 601, the quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. There is no question.
Reposting this because there's a lot of chatter between @Mike-from-Philly's original question and this informative reply from @SeeTOPh :
"what sets this knife apart at this price-point is 2 things: one being the m390 blade, which is arguably an all-around top 3 steel (and unarguably top 7; i give an awkwasrd number just to be safe). Ive got a Microtech LUDT with it and it holds an amazingly sharp edge and sharpens up quite nicely with just my spyderco sharpmaker.
But what really makes this a good deal at this price point is that all the hardware is titanium. i agree you can find some great knives out of china for significantly less, but i promise you will not find another knife out there with all titanium handles, clips, hardware, backspacer, pivot cover and ceramic bearings pivot with m390 steel for less than $300...
im not going to buy this because i have an aversion to framelocks, as i tend to fidget with my knives and benchmades axis lock or spydercos compression lock allow me to close it while keeping my fingers out of the path of the blade, but thats just a personal preference. I did consider it though as WE Knives are generally 3.5" blades and up (i like 2.75-3.25") yet this one is still in my sweet spot.
Man, i just saw the weight. 3.4oz for a 3.2" blade knife. Thats incredibly low. Thats down near the weight for benchmades osborne 940, which is widely considered the benchmark for length to weight ratio in an EDC knife."

Here are the folks responsible for its design and manufacture at Blade Show 2016 - the same place that we had a chance to see and handle these knives for the first time:

I was surprised and disappointed at the discussion here (in general) until I went and read the "discussions" on previous WEKnives drops. Now I'm no longer surprised. The only real "discussion" of their products has been either a) why you should never buy from the awful Chinese, or b) people trying to refute the same tired old claims made in a).
Sad.
I think it's a cool knife and I like the company and their products.
I have 4 WE knives and they're all well made. These knives are a bargain given the collective sum of design, materials and manufacturing detail.
If you're on the fence, I don't think you'll be disappointed. WE are a little better than Kizer, equal or better than ZT or Taichung Spydies, but not as good as Reate or Rike.
I stay away from Chinese products as much as possible. No personal ill will or hatred towards the people. I just don't like their ways of :
1. I'll make your products for you cheap. 2. I'll copy your designs and combine all the best features to make my own products. 3. I'll sell my "high end" products under my own brand for way cheaper. 4. Sorry, you might be out of business soon.
I've seen this phenomenon repeated often. Till that changes, I'll keep my money here in the USA. Btw, Massdrop prices are not always the best, not to mention the wait and shipping cost. More than once, I've found products offered on Massdrop for cheaper overall somewhere else. I'm just saying "don't drink the kool aid" without checking around first.

you don't have any idea how the industry works, why are you making these suggestions? ohhh so you will get people to try and side with your baseless opinion based on false information you are trying to spread.
your comments are now worthless because 1 you don't even know how the industry works based on your post as evidence. 2 you don't have any we knives so you are completely bs'ing everyone here with your lack of knowledge of the subject this thread is about. and 3 you have a distaste for China which has a tendency to make some terrible products but China is no different than the USA, they can make both good and bad product's, bit its often the USA that chooses to offer the cheaper product for more profit.
I could go on, but you word is already not to be trusted just based on this.
koiloco
So, you are saying, "I am biased against any product from China because I judge that all products from Chinese manufacturers are likely made with either unfair, unscrupulous, and/or malicious business intent."
Do I have that correct? Just trying for some clarification.
$260 for a chinese knife? No, thank you.

I'm sure that's not WeKnives posting for themselves. That's an aspersion I will call out and stick up for. His posts are not at all consistent with my correspondence with WeKnives to date.
I am a knife collector and user and your off base comments have to be corrected because your spreading base less accusations based on your hate of China and your lack of knowledge on the subject
I own way more American made knives than Chinese made knives and I only like high quality Chinese knives. I hate crkt and bokers etc Chinese quality. they are the worst.
