    Just got my ZT 0460 about a week ago. I noticed some very light grind burn on the tip. It's lighter than hay color and on the last 1/16" or less of the tip. You can really only see it in the right lighting. Bad or no big deal?

    no biggie, just sharpen it out. diamond sharpener may be the fastest and easiest.

    I think I'd just sharpen it out. Can you post a picture?

    I've tried taking a picture and my phone wont pick up the color I'm seeing. I'm starting to think maybe it's just my eyes playing tricks on me when the light hits it just right. Either way if it is burnt I'll just hit it with the diamonds like suggested.
