    Are these warping on my Tops Pasayten?

    You could be right. Best is to get in touch with the company to know for sure. If he is not pleased with the surface and has questions, the mfg. would be the next step. Hope it works out for him.

    Are these warping on my Tops Pasayten?

    When you perform a mod like you did, I doubt any company would back their warranty. Like said before a coating is put on some blades so they don't have to spend the time on the finish.

    Boker Compact Kwaiken w/ Carbon Fiber

    I wish someone who has this knife would chime in. Does the frame lock make it a problem when trying to open the knife? Some with light finger pressure on the lock make it very difficult to flip. I will change the title so it will set this knife apart from the mini. No you tube reviews on this...

    Boker Compact Kwaiken w/ Carbon Fiber

    I think it's the same size as the mini and the price is equal. This to me seems like it would be made a bit better. I do like it's design. The dealer that is selling it is large but I dont know if the name can be mentioned here. They list it as a Mini Kwaiken.

    Looking into grinder to sharpen

    Since Bigfattyt didn't mention 1x42" let me explain why I like the Kallamazoo. The belts are less money then the 2x72. They are available in a wide range of grits as are the 2x72". I go down to 20 micron belts and also have linen belts where I can put rouge or diamond spray on them. I have .50...

    Disassembly of the ZT0470 Question

    I guess anyone who has this knife and seen this thread hasn't taken the knife apart to be able to tell me what hold's the back of the knife in place. No stand off's on this knife and the screws that hold the clip in place seem to short to thread into the spacer between the frame. Only 3/16"...

    Were to but 2/56 screw cutter

    I often drilled and tap holes in a piece of thin metal. 1/8". Insert your screw and grind off or file what you want to remove. When you remove the screw you also help to clean up the thread. Slight cleaning of the tip might be required. The harder the plate material the better especially when...

    Disassembly of the ZT0470 Question

    I had the blade out, along with the bearings and all the hardware. Didn’t remove the carbon fiber inlay. At that point I felt the knife should come apart. The back of the handle area was tight. So I didn’t know what was holding the back together. Still don’t. The inlay in my mind should have...

    Disassembly of the ZT0470 Question

    I have most of my knives apart for cleaning etc. The ZT 0470 has me wondering how the knife is assembled below the pocket clip. Removing the clip and the short screw opposite the clip side doesn't seem to be the answer as these screws are the same length and not long enough to be holding it...

    Any way to fix this?

    You don't sand a chip out but remove the material around the chip to the same depth that the chip is so the chip can no longer be seen. How would the surface look sanding to the depth of the small chip. Getting the same finish would be my concern so the area sanded looks the same as areas not...
