    In the pic, it sorta looks like that has a full SE? Or is that just an optical delusion on my part?

    I really like that! Didn't even know that such a blade existed! Pray tell, where did you get it and how long ago?

    Just freshened up the Hunter on the Sharpmaker. That’ll do to start me off for the day:-

    I believe I bought it 2 years ago off of ebay. By that time it was already out of circulation and was a limited run to begin with.

    There's an interesting story behind this limited run, or maybe just interesting to me. Back in 2013, ZT released the the ZT 0777 (see pic)

    I pre-ordered it on BladeHQ, but when it was actually released it came with a M390 blade instead of that cool damascus composite blade pictured. I believe it was deemed too difficult to mass produce the original composite blade design.

    So all of this time ZT had these small damascus blanks sitting around gathering dust. They finally decided to use it and the 0450 had a blade small enough to use it on. And the limited edition 0450 FCDAM was born.

    I was always really disappointed that the 0777 didn't come with the damascus composite blade. I also always liked the looks of the 0450, but none of the available models spoke to me. So I guess everything came full circle when I bought the 0450 FCDAM. Sorry for sharing this long story that you didn't ask about. [​IMG]

    Nothing to be sorry about. Interesting sequence of events. But nothing that happens in manufacturing really surprises me much anymore! ;)

    Mid-week rotation change; something giving a sense of spring... :
    • LF pocket, on Pangea Ti Pickpocket dangler: LM Squirt PS4. The blade is 420HC; 1.6". This one is just about ALWAYS with me.

      [​IMG]
    • On my car ignition key ring: a classic, the 'Christy knife'; small knife guys know this one. (See also the company website, https://www.christycompany.net/history-of-the-christy-knife-company). This is absolutely a simple keychain knife: body 3 3/8", blade 3/8" x 1 7/8" x 0.025": 'surgical steel'. Here is a pic from the website:

      [​IMG]

    • In RF pocket, on pocket clip: ZT0220; Ti handled flipper, designed by Jens Anso. Orange backspacer. Liners are not milled out. Frame lock. KVT pivot bearing system. Great flipping action. This thing is a beast - makes my Buck 110's look svelte. 3.5" stone-washed CPM-S35VN, drop point, FFG. [​IMG]Pic via Amazon.

    • In the '5th pocket': LM Juice B2; blue handle. This is sort of a 'muskrat' design, but the two blades are different. Both are about 2 1/2" long; both 420HC hollow grind steel.
      [​IMG]

      LM has discontinued this model. If I were looking for something similar I'd look at the Cold Steel Lucky pocket knife -- better steel; better construction; absolutely more costly ;) .

    I know I've posted in this thread in the past so I may be repeating myself. I always carry two knives, a little SAK Ambassador which gets 99.9% of use and a Mini-Griptilian just because I have had the habit of carrying a larger knife since my days in law enforcement. Originally, the bigger knife was a Buck Folding Hunter which was practically the law in my agency. Later, I carried a Buck Squire (501) which is still my all time favorite pocket knife. However, at some point, I was introduced to the Benchmade Griptilian line and a bought a full size one. For me, too big for EDC but the Mini-Grip was about perfect and that was my second knife for many years. Just recently, I bought the new Bugout (535BK2) which is lighter, slimmer, and has a bigger handle and blade. For me to get a decent grip on the handle, I switched out their short deep carry clip for the longer one. I'm not one to rotate knives for EDC so this one will be carried for awhile and I suspect it will replace the Mini-Grip for my daily carry.
