    If you do just a little research you can find factory second Kershaws (and ZTs). I've bought 2 and I can't find the blemishes the disqualified them from normal sale. If it's going to be a user then I think that's the best option. My all time favorite knife is my ZT0560. You'll love a ZT0560BW. If you change your mind about the wavy blade then I think the ZT0350 would be your best choice. AFAIK it's also their most popular knife.

    I just like my traditional stone sharpening method. I've been free handing it since I was a kid:)

    It looks more awkward than it feels. Same with the Kershaw JYD2. The ergos are great even though it looks unconventional.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,

    ZT 0560 BW with my own scale. This is possibly my favorite knife.

    Unless you're waiting for Jon's next shipment of XM-24's the 560/1 is very close to it. I'll admit that it was too big for me so it might be the right size for you.

    New folder models were announced at shot show; ZT0562 and ZT0620. Personally, the 0562CF is very appealing and priced very well given the upgrades from the standard model.

    I love my ZT 0350 and ZT 0560.

    The ZT 0562 looks interesting however.....

    ZT tank like build, M390, Ti frame lock, CF scale all for $300 msrp for the ZT0562 is a great deal for some high quality materials. I'm trying to tell myself that I don't need more ZT, but dang, they are making it hard for me.
