This one is gone
Just putting this out there to see what kind of responses I get. I customized this ZT 0500 at least a year ago or more but find that I NEVER carry it. It's a shame cause this is a great knife---Lock up is ROCK SOLID and the blade is dead center.
HERE'S WHAT I DID:
1.) Removed the scales and chemically stripped the black finish off the aluminum handles.
2.) Sanded the face of the pivot bolt's to a satin finish leaving the concave portion black.
3.) Elongated the clip hole to allow for it to sit deeper making for a more sturdy clip.
4.) Sanded the black off of the clip giving it a satin finish---1000 grit finish.
5.) Slowly and carefully using a dremel created a finger choil---great for detailed cutting work. I immersed the blade many times in water so not to affect the temper of the blade.
6.) Sanded the face of the thumb studs to a satin finish leaving the center hardware black.
7.) LIGHTLY sanded the top spine/edges of the blade allowing for a cool contrast of light and dark across the top of the blade.
NOTE: The knife is used but in EXCELLENT condition. The most the blade edge has ever encountered is string and paper---that's it!!!
I really like the (Industrial) look the knife portrays.
I'm looking for either a ZT 0551 or ZT 0560 mainly but would certainly entertain other offers---if there's any concern value wise lets discuss it via PM's or email.
Here's some pictures:
I'll be in and out throughout the day and will check PM's and emails.
Thanks for looking
I have the stock version for a hard use worker so this one has seen nothing but light duty cutting.
