Help identifying saddle?

I have a saddle I like on a bike I have ridden for several years. The cover is beginning to wear out. If I could replace it with one of the same brand, I'd be happy, but I don't know what the brand is. Anyone recognize this logo? Looks like >|<.

(Also, sorry for the ridiculous image size. I can't resize photos in my phone. Tried to crop it down, but it's still huge.)

The logo is from Kore Components. It appears to be the Retrobu saddle. I'm fairly sure its no longer made.

Thanks for the help. That's a bummer. I've ridden lots of miles on it and I find it very comfy. I guess I'll have to shop around.

Please discuss...

This was the bike as I purchased it. (5 or 6 years ago?) It's probably not a saddle I would have chosen myself, but it's grown on me.

I'm seeing that Selle Italia reintroduced the Turbo saddle for a while recently, but it's not available anymore either. Is there anything else out there that would be similar?

Edit: Nevermind. I didn't look hard enough. I see that there are Selle Italia Turbos available.
