Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
My addiction to knives aside, this looked like a good candidate to carry in my pocket at times a clipped knife is better left at home. And it fills that role very well - slim, light, sturdy and short. This is a beautifully built and finished knife by ZT (my fourth), and is easy on the eyes with the black CF, blue backspacer, and nicely ground SW blade. The scales are subtly contoured and feel great in hand - exactly long enough for four fingers in my med/lg hands. The 20CV blade came paper-slicing sharp and if it performs like my 0393 the edge should retain very well. Now for my only complaint - this knife has premium materials and modern design, but $180 is a lot of money for a small slipjoint. But if you can handle the price it's a wonderful knife.
