Seems a bit pricey to likely end up with the base model. I have been debating whether to pick up one of the copper kwaikens at BkadeHQ.

I have both the copper/carbon, and the micarta/brass kwaikens; the latter comes in full and mini kwaiken sizes, and I own both of those. And I have to say, I Iike the micarta/brass design better. Not only is the blade deployment superior on the micarta/brass versions (which seems to be a generally shared experience among the people I've spoken to who own both varieties), the micarta scales, brass bolsters, and lightly stonewashed blade look better too. The pics online are deceiving, I dont know exactly why, but I totally understand why you would want the copper/carbon variety because while waiting for them to be released, I fully expected to like the copper bolsters and carbon fiber scales much better. Hell, copper and marbled carbon are two of my favorite build materials. But seen in-person, the micarta and brass look amazing together in a way the copper bolsters and marbled carbon scales somehow don't as much, esp in conjunction with the respective blades.
Just my two cents.

Thanks for the input. Not that I do not like the brass, just given the choice, I would normally pick copper over it. Always liked the look better. Yours is not the first comment on the copper having less than stellar deployment either.
I may just never get past the thinking about it stage. I have spent way too much on knives this year and do I really need another kwaiken? Sometimes the window shopping is nearly as fun as the knife in hand.
