    And try to pass it off as a commemorative knife for D-Day when it clearly wasn't intended as anything other than a modern clip point folder with picatinny rail jimping on the spine. It just makes no sense the way it's made. But the Designer seems just about as childish that he seems to fit in well with ZT's current PR and Marketing team.

    Especially when the XCOM would have been a much easier and more fitting choice...*opens photoshop*

    I think I like the 0223 for the same reason I like the Case Shark Tooth Flipper. Both being a modern take on the Folding hunter

    Not super happy with the colors but just to just an approximation of what I had in mind. essentially, dark gray G10 Pommel and "Bolster", Dark Brown Micarta Inlay to use as Faux Leather Stack, Bead Blast Gray Blade with a slight more dagger grind and the spine a little ground down to look more like a guard. Inspired a bit by the Camillus M3 which was introduced near the end of the war. I might do a V2.0 when I feel like spending more than 10 Minutes :p

    Again, spyderco doesn't make folding prybars with ball bearing pivots. They're not advertising "build like a tank" knives.

    Probably not out of the realm on your creation! Kershaw just came out with one that looks like it, the Xcom, a Les George design.

    I used the XCOM, i just changed a few minor things on it to turn it more into a ZT.
