There was also a fourth version…Jigged Titanium. The lesser known version for the Ti aficionados

You know the Wiha driver your using has a compartment in the handle for like 6 different bits. I just put a t6, t8 t10 and a few other popular bits in the handle and so far I've never needed to look beyond that driver for any parts. None of the parts are labeled either and I manage to grab the correct size each time.

Good looking knife, very nice . Solid review and presentation , thanks for sharing .👍😊

Pena never sticks to one style and I absolutely love that about them. Versatility in a company goes a long way with me. 🍻

I really like this knife and I also like the Zulu pattern they did as well which was basically the same knife with a different blade shape! Cool review as always

I know in the video you say you're not into wood scales, but I think this knife would look beautiful with olive wood or some sort of burled wood. I love that they added a pocket clip to a traditional style knife. More need to do that. The Finch Model 1929 is another great melding of traditional and modern knives. I have the CF version of the 1929 and it's a great little knife with a decent fidget factor.

I know you'll hate me for this.. but these are hard to get and with the price it's driven me to the Chinese market where you get a well made non branded knife with VERY similar features for 1/5 the price… once again ive tried to buy it from pena but im over these companies not producing.. seems like it's trying to drive up demand.

I think this would be more of a bolster lock, sub-framelocks are usually a separate locking bar that is attached to the frame of the knife. Plus, KAI USA has a patent on the sub-framelock and they sent a cease and desist letter to Microtech a while back to end their sub-framelock models' production
