You take a very geometric design with rolled seamless corners that an elephant can stand on (remember that one?) and you cut it up, replacing the rolled corners with sharp angles, seams and welds. Rolled corners are stronger than welded sharp corners any day.
I would also disagree with the poster that the "special set" is more aesthetically pleasing to the eye but that is of course a matter of taste.
I have the standard ZP 45/38 and luv 'em.
