    Through the kindness and patience of all the great people at the Kershaw Knives/Zero Tolerance/Shun booth at Blade Show 2012, I was able to spend a fair bit of time photographing this years prototypes.
    The first knife I've completed editing is the RJ Martin/ZT Knives Collaboration ZT 0600 (which won Blade Magazine 2012 Knife Collaboration Of The Year®).
    The knife has a fairly strong detent and flips with a really nice pop. It is a large knife, but does not feel like it is large in the hand. The blade really doesn't seem its length when holding it.
    I really can't wait for this one to hit the streets. I'll keep editing the other knives (work getting in the way), in the meantime, enjoy!

    great pics! They really show the high level of design and execution. If only it weren't a recurve, sigh.

    Very nicely done! Gotta love a nice DSLR set up, did you use HDR for those [it looks like it but I can't differentiate as well here]. Did you bring a small white box, or did you use the powers of PS? Irregardless, love the details shown. Can't wait for more! [Have any 777 teasers?]

    Really nice pictures of some really nice knife's.
    Could you maybe tell us what kind of equipment (camera, lens, flash) that you used?

    Thanks, no HDR involved. I used two speedlights, off camera with mini-octaboxes (one of the speedlights was bare, as necessary. Sadly, no 0777 pics, I felt like I spent way too much time taking up space in the booth, so I concentrated on this years proto's.

    A Nikon D3S with two speedlights, one in commander mode off camera using an SC-29 and the other set as a remote. Lens was an old 55mm AF Micro-Nikkor. The camera body wasn't as important as the lights and the lens though. Anything that could have fired the flashes would have worked. (Honestly thinking a Nikon D3200 might have been nice to use, at a 1/3 the weight of the D3S and double the MP.)
