Man, that is a great photo, and set up right there.
It's been a busy last week or so and I've missed about 6 pages while completing my 12 June sessions of rehab, working in the shop, and spending a couple hot and exhausting days installing the LCC flashing I fabbed for the rubber-to-asphalt roofing transitions on my client's remodel project. I see we've picked up a couple fresh contributors along the way, too.
Not trying to start any flame-wars, but I've never been a huge ZT fan. I've kept 4 I like along the way and I think yesterday's carry is my favorite. The 0452CF nestles right into my sweet-spot--long, pointy, and slender with plenty of handle to hang onto.
Here's a couple others of that same ilk I carried over the weekend.
Going to carry this one tomorrow. Just wetsanded with spirits and 2000grit, now on third coat of truoil. Hopefully she’ll take a 4th coat then i’ll set it in the sun a bit
Amboyna Burl magnetic scabbard.
3” Wharnecliff in curly maple
Carrying this one today. 77mm Scandi Grind
Moose antler set in hot wax curly birch. Magnetic scabbard is zebrawood with a dab of water based walnut wash
This was 3rd heavy coat of truoil. I sand to 80 grit then slobber on truoil. Penetrates deeper in coarse sanding. Zebrawood takes color in the sun
Who’s brings a folding karambit to work at an office?! Oh wait, I did!
The line gets double like
I'd vote for doing the flats. The 801 is a great platform for pimping, which is why I kept mine among the 4 remaining ZTs I mentioned earlier. Different coloration on this one, but it also includes sanded blade flats, leaving the coarse stonewash finish on the primary grind and swedge. ZT blades are such billboards, so it's nice to get rid of everything but the serial #.
Carried this today. Just got it this morning. So far I like it.
Just gave it some time on the strop, now it’s ready for the annual Fourth of July hike tomorrow
