What I saw at other sites showed that this knife, BW, was produced with stainless steel. I have this vague memory of reading about this because of some sort of supply and demand issue. BHQ has a non-BW model that is clearly said to be Elmax for $150. Didn't check S&H. I've been buying too many knives lately. That is when I consider all my other expenses.
Hey everyone, thanks for making us aware that the Elmax knife is no longer produced in the Rexford. We are working with the vendor to get correct images and will bring the S35VN version to the site soon. For those of you who joined the drop, you will not be charged. Thanks for understanding, please reply to this if you have additional questions or concerns.
I have this knife (the ZT 0801) in ELMAX steel, without the blackwashing. To this date, it's one of my favorite knives, and I recommend it to anyone who's on the fence.
Massdrop should include the actual model of this knife, and provide accurate information. This is the 0801 Blackwash Rexford Design, no longer produced, and never offered in Elmax. Only the Satin/Stonewash finishes of this knife were offered in Elmax, to my knowledge, or only in limited/exclusive production runs. The rest of them are all S35VN. That being said, this price isn't bad for a knife of this quality, as the newer version in S35VN runs about $180-200. However, this knife can be had for what is like the same price or cheaper on many other websites including Amazon, Knifeworks, BladeHQ, etc once you factor in shipping and wait times.
Reading the comments, is this drop with the Elmax steel or not ?

Okay, so it's the same knife with the same blade(S35VN) as previous drops. Got it.

Yes, my knife is the same knife with S35VN steel for the blade. It’s an awesome knife. I don’t think you’ll find a bad review on this knife no matter where one will look. And, for what I paid for in the end for this knife after receiving the credit(s) from Massdrop, it made it that much better (I should add that Massdrop, to address the errors of the previous drop for this knife, was quite generous). Without throwing Massdrop under the bus here, I really would be surprised if the steel included in this drop is Elmax..., just sayin’ .
I see all of these comments about it not being ELMAX and yet MASSDROP is still saying it is ELMAX
Really want that ELMAX but don't want to go through the hassle if it isn't. Can anyone confirm this drop will ship ELMAX?
So can i be sure this is Elmax?

Signs point to no. They've only ever sold 35 of these and there are at least 5 people on the comments that got s35vn. Not just in the first drop either.
If only it was in anything but stonewashed black.
Damn, I just got mine in s35vn I was really hoping for ELMAX
Edit:7/2/18 Massdrop refunded me $50 which is nice and all but the false advertisement still doesn't inspire much confidence. The allure of Elmax was the only reason I joined this drop.
How do you get an adjustment on the cost? Got s35vn also.

In the drop-down menu on the upper right of the page (where your picture is at) select "Transactions", then look under the "delivered" tab. On the ZT transastion you'll see where you can click on "contract support". They got back to me in a day and gave some options. I wish this hadn't happened but they made it right.
Not Elmax. This is lame. First the Spyderco Native 5 and now this. I'm 0-2.

Can I get a refund for false advertisement?
Yeah just got mine, NOT ELMAX, s35vn. Ive had several bad transactions with massdrop ow in a very short period of time after shopping here for about 2 years. I really don’t understand what is happening. I’m actually really pissed, don’t advertise a lie. That’s money out of my pocket.
Knife received is S35VN, not ELMAX. Disappointing to say the least, considering this was advertised as ELMAX. I'm waiting to see how MASSDROP makes this right.
6/29 UPDATE: MASSDROP made it right by me. I got a decent price adjustment on the S35VN knife that makes it a good deal. Sure, I would have preferred the ELMAX I thought I was buying, but I'm fine with the one i got at the price it cost me.
I missed this by 1 day.. Is there a way to get into a drop after it has finished..Massdrop support?
I certainly hope this is Elmax steel as advertised.

If it's not, they *have to* refund you. They are clearly and unequivocally advertising it as ELMAX steel any other type amounts to false advertising.
One of the best ZT knives ever. Great design and neutral handle.

I stand corrected, any who MD is notorious for false advertisement so you can jump on either or and find out which one you really get?
Almy82
You were right. They shipped knives with S35VN steel instead of Elmax.
Just recreived it. It’s an Elmax blade!

Nope! Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. I seriously doubt these are actually Elmax.

It’s an Elmax blade.
Timmy123
So the ones they shipped out were actually made with Elmax? Nice! I'm glad they came through this time.
Too bad nobody can answer the question if we will receive Elmax steel this time, today is the last day for the drop...
Holy cow! I love this knife. And Rexford's in general. If I didn't just buy three 0801Ti's for my kids (Christmas). And have a relatively fresh ano job on my original 0801. I'ma love my ZT's 😍🤪

I came very close to buying the 0609 and 0393. But when I went to finalize the order, I couldn't find my wallet. Searched for it for days, then started the process of cancelling/replacing everything. What a nightmare. Nine credit cards (personal and corporate), ccw's from multiple states, DL, about $500-$600 in cash, and other sundries.
Still working on a few odds and ends. So will be a little more time before I'm back to normal (normal knife hoarding anyway 😁).
I'm sure the tool will come along at some point. But would not be surprised to see the timeframe far exceed their own "estimates". Maybe even price also. Sales will be mostly from the KnifeNut community which is a very small segment of overall buyers.

OMG, losing your wallet...that sucks! What a nightmare! I guess you have/had much bigger problems than knives and pivot tools! 🙂 I’m glad things are getting back to normal for you!
Has S35VN vs Elmax sorted out? On last drop, many people reported to have received S35VN not Elmax steel. I would consider joining this drop if that issue has been sorted out.

I think it depends on how old this batch of knives is? If it’s old stock it could be Elmax. I read that ZT was having trouble sourcing enough Elmax, so they went with S35VN, which is more plentiful. I think any ZT knife manufactured from 2016 to the present labeled “made with Elmax” is actually made with S35VN and the seller just hasn’t updated their website with the correct steel yet. I have received ZT’s made with Elmax in recent years, but was told it was because the seller was working with old inventory.
I like this knife a lot but I have my sight on a ZT 0562CF with CPM-20CV, it will be my first ZT, have 3 days to decide
Sorry to ALL that did not get the ELMAX steel but MD will make it good....they always do. LOVE my ZT George 0909. Best AMERICAN made knives for the coin....IMHO. Built for abuse, big and chunky. MORE please!!
So, will the knives really be in Elmax this time or will it be S35VN again? Seems some folks got the wrong blade steel last time and were given refunds instead of replacements.
Notsurewhyibother
Evidently, reading the comments on Amazon, they had problems with Elmax vs S35VN too.
I need a replacement as well and have contacted Massdrop support. My initial response from them is that they are looking into it, then another response asking me for MORE photos and a copy of my packing slip....
If I don't get this handled correctly, I'll stop doing business with Massdrop entirely. I already sent them a photo of the knife, noting the incorrect steel and the corresponding label from the box itself that shows that it matches the serial number on the knife.
It's not the consumer's job to provide a packing slip for something that Massdrop produces and should easily have on hand...

Massdrop Community Support (Tony V.) took care of this to my satisfaction. Thank you Tony.
I got mine in the mail today, and the blade is S35VN, not Elmax. NOT COOL, MASSDROP. I would like an exchange, as well. Edit: The thing to do in this instance is get in touch with Customer Support, which I did. Hopefully the Elmax one is available; if not, I'm going to need to return for a refund. I just don't need another S35VN blade right now.

I've emailed back and forth with customer service, and after I sent them pictures of the label from the box, the knife itself (showing the S35VN mark), and the packing slip, they got back to me after like a day and a half. The response was basically that they can't get the Elmax one, so they emailed me a return label so I can get a refund. Still disappointed, but at least I'm not out $165. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I received this knife today... I need some clarification. The description in the ‘drop stated the steel to be “Elmax”. Yet, the description on the blade I received is written to be “S35VN”. Did I receive the wrong knife?? It seems like I did :( .... See the photo... The knife blade as described in this ’drop should have been “ Bohler ELMAX Stainless”, or simply, “Elmax”. Massdrop..., please clarify and arrange for the knife I received to be exchanged for a ZT0801 with Elmax steel. Did others receive the wrong knife??
search
Edit: I contacted customer services, and ’Cara’ has responded with request for photos of labels, SKU #’s, etc. At this point, patience will be what is needed :) I should note that Massdrop has adressed a number of concerns I’ve had in the past, all of which have been resolved fairly and to my satisfaction. I anticipate addressing this concern will be no exception.
AJAugust
I did as well. I sent a message to customer service asking for an exchange or return... I didn't sign up for S35VN :-\
