    The kopa has a patina of upscale collectability, wouldn't making a less expensive version that us normal clock-punching Joe Normals could afford kinda defeat the purpose?

    Would it really find a market? Unless they also flattened the slabs, so as to elimate the need for the recessed clip pocket, it would still need to be priced higher than the Navigator and the Dragonfly. Not sure dealers would be eager to carry yet another 2 1/4" ~ 2 1/2" all stainless folder with a leaf shaped flat ground blade.

    All SS puts it in the market of the Navigator and Dragonfly, I don't see that going over very well. I like the inlays a lot, wish I could afford them all.

    I'm sure if enough Clock-Punching Joe Normals clamored for one, it would be made...however that is unlikely.

    P.S. Management requests that the clocks be activated in a gentle manner as repeated punchings to the clock surface have caused significant damage...that is all...now get back to work.

    We will, more than likely do a run in SS handles somewhere in the series, but it will still be a limited run of 600 pieces.

    I would guess that a SS handle that was engraved would be quite a "looker".
