I have handled the Kaspers from CRKT, and they have a good weight that's pretty identical to the original (<A HREF="http://www.geocities.com/joncalibur/KasperLargeFl.jpg">mine</A>) at a fraction of the cost and with a safety on the back of the blade (not exactly how that works) I got to handle them at the East Coast Custom Knife Show a week ago. They were on the table next to the Crawfords.
That's all I can really tell you from handling and visual inspection. They look to be a good value for what you're getting. Is there a place online that is offering them already?
