My first ZT is a winner
I've had this blade for about a month now and I like it even more now than I did when I got it. Its build is flawless, the opening action is a joy and the ergos make the knife a pleasure to handle.When I first got it, I found that the Ti framelock would stick and was a little hard to actuate, but it has smoothed out nicely with use and is not an issue now. Lockup is rock-solid. I love all of my knives, for various reasons, but if the SHTF and I could only take one blade, this'd be the one. It inspires confidence. Short of a high quality fixed blade knife, I can't imagine a better more functional knife to stake your life on.Despite its size, it carries very well and I’m not easy to please in that area. I know it's there but it doesn't bother me at all. On the contrary, it's reassuring.I can sit on the sofa for what seems like hours just flipping the knife open over and over. It's that addictive and that much fun. The blade just glides open on its KVT pivot, and lock into position with a satisfying “SNIK.” You can flick your wrist if you want, but it’s not necessary.BTW, I sent the knife to Ben of the Edge Pro Sharpening Company, for his free sharpening demo, and he sent it back to me in a condition I can only describe as phenomenal. I’ve never seen an edge like it. The edge is polished to a mirror shine and is hair-splitting sharp. It just looks amazing. The sharpening potential for this steel is off the hook. Take Ben up on his offer and send yours in.Buy this knife, you will not regret it.
