whtsmoke - that's a classy looking knob/handle. I've seen ink pen kits that come with exotic wood for the pen barrels - yours reminds me of African bubinga wood I saw on a stockmaker's website years ago.

That one was made from a piece of Thuya Burl,
I use to work at Frank Paxton Lumber Co., and we had all kinds of domestic and exotic hardwoods.

These are a few I have left the first one is steel and then the wood ones from left to right are redoak, bocote, and the last teo are thuys burl just shaped different. I like the smaller diameter thuys burl the best seems to be just the right size. The pictures dont do the wood justice.

If you want a big ball knob, just go to your local hdwre. store they should have some knobs with the metric thread.

Why? I'd much rather have 60 degree throw.

You don't loose the 60 degree bolt lift angle it just make it fell like a trigger that has had the weight of pull reduced. Leverage, extra leverage makes that little bolt opererate faster and smoother.

I bought a Bergara B14 Tactical Bolt Knob on Ebay for about 20 . Like it a lot. Same thread size as the CZ 457 ( 6mm )

Difficulty In Removing Factory bolt knob

How hard is it to remove the bolt knob on a CZ 457. Does it take a special tool?

From replies here, I'd guess most often, you need to put a little heat on the OEM knob with something like a Bernz-O-Matic butane torch. The two I've removed didn't take a lot of heat before the loc-tite or whatever CZ uses softened to the point where a pair of visegrip pliers clamped on a piece of leather belt wrapped around the knob made it easy to remove.

I heated mine with a heat gun and took a pair of channel locks with some leather around it and it came off pretty easy. Took a wire brush and cleaned off the threads and screwed on the new one. I got mine from the Polished Knob on Facebook. Lots to choose from. Vise Grips scare me on gun parts, LOL. Very happy with mine.
