    The pattern on the new ones look almost exactly like the pattern which is on the Ti side. It almost looks like maybe they knocked some of the peaks off of the original pattern, leaving behind a different look. It could be a whole new pattern, or it could be machined down original pattern. I'll let y'all decide when I get the comparison vid.
    The pattern is the same, but previously we were cutting the pattern with a 0.125" ball end mill on the front scale, and a 0.25" ball end mill on the titanium. We are now cutting both sides with the 0.25" ball mill, hence the subtle change to the front scale.

    Do you have any idea on around what serial number this change happened for the 561's?

    Better watch that side of your table Rick (tracking devices on folders) if Alpha Hunter's on the loose next door!

    So I finally got to check a 561 out yesterday and I am just blown away by how awesome this knife is. I played with it for about 10 minutes and the KVT is just so smooth. I would have bought it but it was marked up a bit and I didn't have enough cash on me. I can't wait to order one these

    Congratulations!
    Give yourself some time to get use to the feel of the knife and you'll love it even more.

    I took the fine side of my leathermans file and rounded all the sharp edges, not complaining just preference

    i believe that it was said that on future knives they are going to smooth the jimmping a bit. that is the only complaint i have only on the lock bar though i like it sharp on the top of the handle personally.

    Congrats! I live in Lahaina. We probably have some of the only 056X's on the island!
    The only thing that we truly depend on for our lives is our mind. Everything else is just stuff that breaks.

I had my dog in my truck so couldn't hang out all night.. anyway, back story covered, on the topic of the 0561.. Thomas had 0561 #0002 that I got to flip and man is that thing nice! He had a Hinderer original to compare. If you want the custom, it's a great knife but the 0561 blows it away! The 3D sculpted handles are so much nicer than those on the custom and as I expected from handling a Tilt (which I' now have, again, THANKS THOMAS!) that the KVT was going to be awesome on this knife! It is! And the finish is just amazing.
    Crazy. I have that #0002. I have actually had it for a few months and only realized I had #0002 a day or so ago. Thanks for QA'ing it for me!

    I think it was a 0560 and I typed it wrong. I can't remember now. Glad to hear you are happy with the knife though! Hope you were as blown away with how smooth it is as I was. I love my 0560 like I've never loved another blade, including the Blurs that I'm crazy about.

    Snagged myself a pre-owned ZT 560 over the weekend !!!
    Love the knife over all, I have the same observations as most here. Great solid knife, looks great, good machining, though like others have said, some of the jimping is pretty aggressive.
    Not sharp that it would cut you, but your finger tips sure feel it after flipping the knife most the day.

    One thing I have noticed on mine though...
    I know the indent when the blade is closed is meant to be quite strong, but mine is tight enough that you can NOT use the thumb stud.
    A few times it has worked, but most the time I can even hold the knife with 2 hands, and with all my might, cants open it with the thumb stud.
    Its as if you end up applying an odd side force to the system, making the indent dig in more, preventing it was disengaging.
    Any others have this issue?

    Mine were like that when they arrived, congrats. They should smooth out but why use the blade stops to deploy a bearing assisted flipper right?

    Congrats! It took a few times but I mastered flicking with the thumb stud. Apply some Rem Oil on the bearings and watch it fly!
    Guys kept playing with mine at Blade asking what I did to it. Jimmer5 thought I flicked it a thousand times but I just cleaned and oiled it. I've flicked it maybe 50-75 times myself. Lol!

    Enjoy! It's one of the best production knives ever made in my book.
