We have recently found a new supplier for Zirconium and are finally happy with the quality of the material. Since we started working with it two years ago, a number of sheets we received would be inconsistent once they are ground into and contoured. Because of the difficulty in working with Zirconium, as you can imagine, this is a huge waste of time and consumable materials, specifically grinding belts. Luckily this batch is absolutely excellent, so expect more knives with Zirconium in its various finishes. So far we offer Zr as bolsters, front/rear, straight or curved; stripe inlays; floating backspacers; pocket clips; full scales (heavy!). The available finishes are polished, satin (brushed), matte (blasted), orange peel, and glossy hammered. Of course we are always experimenting in order to discover new ways to use this gnarly gray metal. Pictured is a Rainmaker with hammered/polished curved Zr bolsters/clip, paired against vintage micarta.
