That prototype has been on the web site for quite some time. It was going to be made by lionsteel and they scrapped the project due to problems with the hest folder. Then there was talk about an ESEE III folder. Last I heard ROWAN was considering the projects but I haven't heard anymore about it in a long time. Someone did post up though that it would no longer be a frame lock if they moved forward with it. Lot of speculation around this knife. I for one would love to see it made.
