Outstanding EDC for most
I have carried this knife as an EDC for several years now and it is the knife I always come back to. I had two of the three inch versions and now I'm on my second 3.5, so I have a lot of experience with them. While it is not a heavy duty knife, it is ideal for everyday tasks like slicing food, opening boxes, etc. it is very light and has supremely good materials. The zdp can be a little hard to maintain without good abrasives, but it is harder than anything else out there. A full flat grind is difficult to find and this one is perfect, tapered heel to tip as well as spine to edge. A work of art. The pivot will not stand up to yard work or remodeling, but I have other knives for that. This thing will slice like no other. The design is not scary for non knife types and the old fashion back lock makes it seem even less aggressive. The ergos are great, the materials are great, the grind is great. What else can I say? I'm buying a third one in case I ever lose the one I've got.
