Is this the Knipex CoBolt Model # 71 12 200 bolt cutter, the version from around 2014, improved with the micro-structured cutting edge jaw blades?

Knipex apparently kept the same model number when they made this improvement to the jaws; the texture on the cutting edge is supposed to help keep the items you're cutting from sliding. A picture from the Knipex website shows the improved version. Thanks.
