    It is worth it.. trust me LOL! I own a lot of slipjoints, customs, mid techs. There is a reason this won best of show.

    Also there is a 6 month wait.. so better get on the list.

    To add to that, Case is adding the "Kickstart" which is a Mid-Hunter that has a clip, thumb studs, AND assisted opening.

    I am excited about this knife. It will be a while before I get one, but it is a slipjoint and a Bill Harsey design. Since my collection is mostly Harsey designs, this is exciting news indeed.

    I looked it up, it is indeed a Harsey design. In the CRK page, they even have the person holding the knife wearing a hickory shirt :D

    just judging from the pictures, it seems pretty thin behind the edge.. if so, I'll probably end up getting one.

    Yeah, I saw that. Assisted opening on a Case - who'd a thunk it?

    With the pocket clip removed, I don't see much difference between this knife and a full Ti Pena knife. If one is excepted here, why not the other?

    For one,traditional slipjoints don't come with removable pocket clips.--KV

    I will post a picture later in the day with the insert in the knife. You will see it covers it perfectly.

    I have not seen anyone post a pic of the knife without the pocket clip yet and with the insert installed. So maybe hold on and wait till that gets shown first before making any judgments.

    They both have backsprings. Interesting design, and with the clip removes it qualifies as traditional in my opinion. That is pricy, but it will be very precisely made with top tier materials.

    The backspring is also S35vn.

    Thank for that. Needs to be said. The term "traditional" is not a synonym for slipjoint either.

    Ya... Nope
    The clip, torx screws, and adjustable pivot don't say "traditional".
    I'd call it a modern "slipjoint".

    It is NOT traditional, not even close. As JohnDF said, it's a modern slipjoint.

    While I'm not familiar with Mr. Pena's work, I would have the opinion that a knife made totally from titanium is hardly a "traditional" knife due to the material it was made from.--KV
