The Drop Gent is designed by Ferrum Forge, and made by WE Knives in China. The 3-inch blade, made from premium CPM-S35VN steel Crafted with a 6AL4V titanium frame. There are three major handle options. For $100 you can get a knife that’s surrounded by smooth G-10 scales (in three colors {Blue, Black and Olive Drab} ).

Massdrop Gent in Rosewood

For $120 you can get a knife that’s surrounded by Carbon Fiber or Rosewood handles.

Massdrop Gent in Carbon Fiber

The Clip on the Gent leaves a lot to be desired. It feels twangy and a little cheap on an otherwise amazing knife.

The handle fills the hand well, and is comfortable to use. The flipper tab makes for a nice guard to keep your index finger back from the blade. There is a forward finger choil, but its design so close to the blade make the knife a little scary to use as it is much to close to the cutting edge for comfort.

Gent Vs Kizer Dukes

The Gent has the same blade length as the Kizer Dukes. Though the Dukes is half an inch longer in overall length.
