    I don't much agree with how the vendor labels the colors, but the 0801 goes by "Carolina dark blue with a hint of purple" and the 0808 goes by "purple with copper backspacer". I see the 0801 as purple that has more blue than red, and the 0808 spacer is the color of brass.

    So guys let me get some input from the ZT crowd.

    I have a 0303 that I bought used a while back. It was in seemingly rough shape but amazingly it cleaned up to about a 9.5 out of 10...it's in what I would call "carried but barely used" condition. It has some faint snail trials on the blade and a tiny bit of wear on the liners up in front of the pivot. I even got a new clip and pivot bolt for it so even the wear in those areas is gone and like new.

    Anyway, I'm looking for opinions regarding some mods. I wanna start carrying and using this knife, but to do so I'm gonna have to tweak some things. I know just from handling this thing that there's no way I could go out in my back yard and lean on this knife without walking away with some serious blistering. Here's what I'm talking about...

    This giant jimping...the edges/corners are super sharp. So much so that flipping the thing more than a couple times hurts my finger.

    Then the edge of the tang/flipper feels like crap against my index finger.

    My plan was to smooth these areas out with my Dremel. But, I don't wanna go and start grinding on this knife if someone out there would prefer to have it in their collection. Also, honestly the striped blade isn't really my thing. I've posted on my local Craigslist looking for a trade but got nothing. I'd much rather have the 0300BW, for one because I just like that finish more, and for another because I know I'll have to do the same grinding on that one and I think it'll be less noticeable.

    So, what would you guys do? Anyone interested in trading? If not I may go back and see what my knife shop guy will do in a trade, but I have a feeling I'm going to get raped on cost if I go that route.

    Evil D: none of my business, but if you're able to post on BST I'd think you'd get better response than Craigslist. Maybe also Blade Forum? (hope the mods don't censor that comment ;-)

    Best

    Oh, yeah I didn't mean to make this into a trade post, that just sorta happened. I was more looking for opinions on modding or not modding.

    Went a little crazy the last few weeks, picked up 7 new ZTs. I'm trying to resist getting a 0801 or a 0452cf now.

    I'm not able to go without my 0452cf i feel naked without it in my pocket, this is by far the best knife i have ever had! It's so slim, lite and what a nice big blade, it is a big knife but it does not feel like it, small pocket clip works like a charm no problem for me, i'm a big fan of ZT knives at this point and adding to the colection soon

    I'd just get the G10, then you can get any scale you want from 6-3bladeworx for the same as you'd have spent for the CF version.
