    My most recent addition was a ZT 460Ti. Action out of the box on ZT knives
    with the steel washer for the bearings to run on instead of the Ti is a major
    improvement in my opinion. That being said, 20CV blade, Ti scales, Sinkevich
    design...the 460Ti is an epic EDC. Your teardown video on you tube was excellent.
    Thank you!

    Shirogorov Russian Dr Death single row roller bearing system (SRRBS).

    CF presentation side slab with underlay washer.

    I love that the lanyard attaches to the backspacer. Below that are the body screw and receiver with a Shirogorov pivot bead to the right. Next tier is the interior clip screw, pivot screw, stop pin, and clip.

    [​IMG]

    Had another hole-y knife alongside while I worked...

    [​IMG]

    ...and all back together.

    Victorinox Swisschamp Disassembled, it always amazed me how high is the tool density packed within a SAK:

    Shirogorov Hati on PB Washers

    Simple knife to work on. All I need is my Shiro hedgehog tool to disassemble. That, and a bit of hand-strength as the machining is so tight it's a bit tough to get apart, particularly getting the backspacer out...

    [​IMG]

    Before cleaning, washer polishing, and re-lubing...

    [​IMG]

    Pivot assembly, before pic. Note bushing pivot very much like a CRK Sebenza 21...

    [​IMG]

    Two years' worth on gunk inside cleaned up with rubbing alcohol and a couple wood-handled cotton swabs...

    [​IMG]

    Washers buffed up on an old loaded strop. The one on the left is actually reflecting a ceiling beam above...

    [​IMG]

    Ready to go back together...

    [​IMG]

    ...and just waiting for the show side slab...

    [​IMG]

    All back together with W10 NanoOil in the pivot and a dot of FinishLine on the detent ball--wicked smooth and flipping great...

    From a couple years ago before the wave was available with the replaceable wire cutters. Jaw swap with a rebar solved the issue. 06111CE0-B66A-470D-8677-D260601E1086.jpeg

    The action on my F95T work user was getting sluggish and it had been some time since I'd had it apart so I took advantage of a rest/goof-off day to clean it out and re-lube. Tools and supplies....

    [​IMG]

    Knife opened up. The infamous loose bearings stayed almost perfectly in place on one side in their recess while the retainer/cage came away with the blade. The other side stayed intact.

    [​IMG]

    That's not grease--it's NanoOil and job site dirt. Time for a cleaning, ya think?

    [​IMG]

    Bearings soaking in a dish of alcohol waiting to be separated and cleaned; cages and hardware likewise flooded and awaiting a wipe down.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everything clean and ready to go back together.

    [​IMG]

    One side all done with the blade back in and the other side ready for the bearings. They've somehow become magnetized and stick to the tweezer so I have to get each close to being in place hanging off one prong and push it off and in with the wooden swab handle. I got two on the tweezer at one point, closed it and one flew off. I heard it bounce off the wall and hit the wood floor near the edge of the carpet. It's hard to believe I actually found it.

    Edit: Turns out the tweezer is magnetic, though the tiny bearings may actually pic up a charge from it as they stick to the pivot shaft if misplaced.

    First time tearing down my 0200 since buying it, and as my first quality blade, it deserved some love. Really improved the action!

    Reate Hills i did a quick takedown on a while back to upgrade the bearings to MRBS. Pretty simple design.
