It's interesting to compare the 2011 model with the 2020 version. I'm on the fence as to which I prefer. The newer one has an almost bead blasted finish compared with the 2011 which looks obviously stonewashed . The grips are very different as well. The newer one's micarta is somewhat coarsely finished, almost rough to the touch and dark brown. The 2011's grips are more polished and a different shade of brown. Lastly the 2011's hardness is 58-59 per the b card, while the 2020's hardness is not indicated. I'm leaning towards the older one, it just looks a bit more refined, which it probably is. I'm guessing the hardness on the newer one is 59-60 like most of the newer CRK blades, so there's that to factor in.
