    Did your CC get charged? Did you get an order confirmation?

    I've emailed and sent messages to Southard but no response at all.

    I'd say near custom with so many custom options. You can have one anywhere from $600 to $1,500!

    Yeah. The options are pretty nice.
    I would go for one with a 20CV polished blade, pocketless Ti scales, copper spacer, and a timuscus clip, summing up to $800.

    Are the inlays on both handles? If so, do they cover the lock bar at all, perhaps making it a bolster lock?

    Here is a picture of it on the lock side, taken from Nick Shabazz Youtube video.
    Looks like inlays would be there, too.

    I also like the look of the lock side. It is much cleaner than the original Tolk.

    Anyone got one yet?
    This is the only video I have found so far of Mini Tolk.
    Look really nice, ground to a thin edge from a thin blade......

    Any updates on this? Would love to see one of these in hand! Also, I kind of wish it had a secondary opening method, and not just the flipper.

    I am waiting to hear, too!
    Regarding a secondary opening method, I actually hate the thumb stud on the original Tolk and like that the mini brother lacks one.
    It also looks like mini Tolk has enough clearance between the blade spine and the handle, such that you can probably pinch the blade to open.

    The ordering page is still active.
    Grab one before it is closed again, if you dare and desire.

    I ordered one right before it closed and its been 6 weeks. I know he was hoping for 3-4 weeks, so hopefully soon.

    he just sent out an email to everyone who has ordered one, explaining why it has taken so long. But good news he says that he is going to start assembly and shipping tomorrow!
