    I am really digging my 0550 over my 0560 and other EDC knives. Is it safe to say that so far there are 5 versions of the Zero Tolerance 0550?

    1) Early Gen 1
    2) Late Gen 1 - Thinner cut around lockbar
    3) Deep Carry and outer lockbar "cutout"
    4) Blacked out blade
    5) 0551. I know its not a 0550, but for all intents and purposes its just a 0550 with Elmax right?

    Corrections are more than welcome....

    There's the 0550 Elmax (limited to 113) version and the hybrid old front scale regular clip, new clip titanium side version. How technical do you want to get? :D In the meantime, I'll just leave this here. New family shot coming soon

    Not sure if you meant only 113 551's were made, but if that is the case, I notice you have four of them. You may or may not have heard, but three 551's is the limit so I'm going ot have to ask you to send one my way to balance out the knife universe:)

    I wish I got an 0551, or an ELMAX 0550. When I ordered my 0560s & 0550s I was sure that I'd prefer the 0560 because of the KVT, the flipper & the steel (I LOVE ELMAX!!) Turns out I prefer the 0550. I need to get one the new version though, because I love the deep carry clip.

    I have a 0551 and a 0550 that I EDC. If there where only 113 0551s, wow, great. But I thought I read that there were more than that.

    There were lots more. There were 113 550s with Elmax though (550s, not 551)
