    Every time I use the laser-beam-sharp blade of my Chappy LWT, in my head I shout YES!!!

    I’ll make this easy. A Spyderco Yellow Fish Hunter in H1 Blade Steel.

    Y is for this Yellow Bandit Edge Trimmer designed to knife off the excess heat-applied edge-banding.

    It doesn't work well at all, tending to dig in and follow the grain in the banding material and sometimes digging into the plywood's finish veneer. I've learned to use a laminate trimmer which leaves a slight excess, then trim that off free-hand with a taped utility knife blade like you see on the left in this pic.

    Seems Y is definitely for yellow. In this case a yellow Mini Grip slicing a (mostly) yellow banana.

    Unfortunately I have to follow the yellow handle trend today, on a homemade job...

    Thank you! I made the blade from a piece of coil spring, the handle is a melted yellow thing that utility companies use to mark guy wires.

    Edited to add: I really like that Spyderco you posted today too... The blade geometry looks great. What steel is it @Hackenslash?

    This brings us to the letter Z. A heartfelt thank you to @Eli Chaps for starting this thread goes out. I’ve had fun and have seen some of the most awesome knives, thank you to everyone else too who took the time to participate.

    A Signature Series with Bronze Hardware & a Bronze Colored (ugly bronze color) Launch 4.

    Gentlemen, it’s been a pleasure, some truly fine knives posted by all.
    Thank all of you for participating and tolerating the dismal display of cutlery I posted for round 3.

    The Spyderco SlysZ Bowie is a fine knife but many people overpaid on secondary market due to internet hype.

    Thanks to @Eli Chaps for starting all the fun here, and thanks to all who participated--especially those who've stuck around through all three turns. It's been a blast. :D To finish up...

    Z is for the VZSlant scale on my Strider SnG, which is great in hand and really brightened up a rather dull-looking knife.

    Round three comes to a close. Thanks again @Eli Chaps for an awesome thread. Its been fun and great seeing so many interesting knives. A side effect of this thread was my EDC rotation being pretty much alphabetized for the past 78ish days as I tried to carry whatever I posted here that day. It gave me a chance to revisit some knives I hadn't carried in a while.
    I think this will end my run on a daily basis but, if it keeps going I'll surely be checking in for viewing pleasure, and may toss in a post if it lines up with the day.
    A very cool coincidence is that my final post can be of the very same knife I submitted for the first "A" post of the first round when this thread started.

    Z is for the ZDP-189 blade on this AG Russel Acies2... with my favourite Zippo to end off Z.

    If we roll into round 4, I may have to get a little creative.

    Thanks to @Eli Chaps for a fun thread and thanks to all who've posted great knives and alliterations!
