Black Zirconium DRAGONSKIN engraved Scales for Benchmade Bugout 535. COMPATIBILITY: All Bugout 535 versions are now compatible with these new redesigned scales. You will need a good torx bit set to remove the screws and pivots. The pivot can be tough to remove if you don't know what you are doing. There are small parts on the Para 2.Black ZIRCONIUM: Pure Zirconium (Zr Atomic number 40) is a lustrous, grey-white, very strong, lightweight and hypoallergenic metal that closely resembles hafnium and, to a lesser extent, titanium. Zirconium is extremely resistant to heat and corrosion and it is lighter than steel. Through my own heating process, I create a unique appearance, that's called "Black Zirconium" or "Oil Slick". Through this high heat, a layer of extremely hard black oxide grows on the metal. This thin black layer is much harder than pure Zirconium, which does not rub off over time. Therefore, it is more durable than black-coated items, such as black tungsten and titanium. This "black" or "Oil Slick" color is permanent, it does not fade, tarnish, or change color. INSTALL: You can also request the scales to be installed on Factory Knife as a custom order. Just send me a message.
PRECISION: Each MetonBoss item is precision CNC machined from a solid billet in my Anaheim manufacturing facility in California, USA. Even though most of them are in stock, some are only in machined form, so they still need to be finished to your order specifics - such as color treatment, patterns, etc. As there are thousands of variations you can select in my shop. If you need any item urgently, please ask me before ordering to be sure.
