It probably costs a bit more to produce. The blade has been changed from FFG to sabre grind with a bead blast finish, thats extra work. They removed the gimping, which should mean they save money (to me anyway) but I've heard Sal say anytime something is changed from standard production it slows things down, and costs more. The clip has a stone wash finish (more cost) and then it is a collaboration which means they have to pay royalties do they not?
Makes sense to me, I can see where the extra money goes. Perhaps Sal or Michael can correct me or add some insight.
