I have no idea how they would have made that sharply defined edge, and the two textures on the old nick, but its pretty fantastic. Looks to me like the original Mnandis were a bit of over achieving, and they had to simplify to keep costs down, or production up. I hate to say it, but like the new umnum pivot, CRK is not above dumbing things down a bit from time to time. I love the brand, but you gotta call a spade a spade, that new nail nick looks a lot easier to produce to me. I don't think everything they do is by definition an improvement, just cause CRK did it. This looks like a cost saving.
