Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
I’ve had this knife for well over a year. Occasionally I read some reviews that indicate a problem with the detent. Maybe I got lucky, but this thing is outstanding. It flips like lightning. This is one of the best flipping knives in my collection. Its up there with my shirogorovs. One thing I appreciate is the sound, a nice satisfying “click” when it opens. Not only is the action amongst the best, it has perfect ergonomics, and great blade shape. The color is a matter of taste. I don’t have a problem with bronze, especially on this knife. It’s a nice contrast with the satin blade. Just like every other ZT I have, it came scary sharp. The only downside, is the proprietary pivot screw. I don’t mind the see through pivot, it’s different, what bothers me is, not only was it not included, it wasn’t available when this knife was released. Including would have also driven the cost up, obviously. Since I don’t take my knives apart, unless absolutely necessary, it really wasn’t an issue until recently. My pivot screw loosened up a little, and now I’m waiting for my STP tool in the mail.
