    You didn't get the black wash I recommended but you got the same knife. I'll count that as my influence. Very cool knife and I was on the fence about getting it until the 0562cf was announced. Now that one is my target unless I land an XM-18 before then.

    If JSB's had it I woulda' got it. Instead I'll acid wash this one and swap scales a few times:)

    I bet that will look great. I've been contimplating doing an acid wash on one of my blades soon. Think I might make my mini grip my test subject. Would hate to ruin any of my other knives that are either expensive or have setimental value.

    I think I'll wait a while...I might stonewash it first to see if the acid works better without the satin finish. Anyway, It'll be a while:) I need to research and I don't have time:p

    For what it's worth, I've heard from people who have tried that Elmax doesn't like to be stonewashed. It's too tough, and won't take the texture well.

    Hmm. I thought, hypothetically, that the finish may make it harder for the acid washing. It seemed a normal progression of actions to take...maybe not.

    Well, the ZT is out of the rotation for the time being. This will teach me never to listen to the interwebs when it tells me de-assisting it is a good thing. While putting it back together, I lost one of the bronze washers. I have no clue how it happened, but it is in the great beyond with all of the lost socks and my BM 551. So today, it is just the Sgian Dubh.
