Great knife
Don H.
I ordered this knife on Wednesday received it on Friday using economy shipping. Very well made. The CNC milling is immaculate. The clip is a little tight but is expected with a new piece of equipment. Yes, it is a heavy knife but it's mostly blade weight. Blade hq is a great place to buy great knives at great prices.
Great knife, almost perfect
Shane H.
Amazingly smooth. When unlocked but open the blade falls freely without any shaking. It's so smooth you'd think it would have to have a quarter inch of play, but it has none. It's "Bank-Vault" tight. No wrist action needed for the opening. The steel is great and keeps a fine edge.
the ONLY problems I had with mine is that the bottom screw holding the pocket clip on came stripped & the lock is just the tiniest bit sticky.. But for sure.. 5 stars.

Would recommend.

One of my favorite manual flippers.
Eric J.
This is a sweet, practical, well-made, tactical EDC. This flipper has such smooth action, wrist movement is not needed with index finger deployment. Ergonomics of the handle are perfect. If anything, too much jimping. Suitable for heavy duty, military, or personal protection. Small pocket clip and deep pocket carry are perfect. Authoritative opening and zero blade play gives this puppy 5 stars. This has the easiest titanium frame lock to release with one hand. This knife is Americana at its best. Cheers to ZT for another quality product.
One small issue: the opening is so sweet, the thumb stud works as good as any, and better than most - when using the thumb stud, the flipper could catch your index finger if held too close to the pivot. All things considered, this ZT is near perfect and a favorite in my collection.
Great knife, two frustrations
John S.
Love the knife. It is big in my pocket and carries very well with the deep carry clip. I use this knife constantly to cut anything needing cutting, even thin wire, and it has never let me down. I like it so much I've purchased a new scale to dress it up a bit. The only frustrations I have are the bearing system and the lockup. While it is flawless and smooth when clean, let a little dust and lint get into the bearings and this knife squeaks. It is easy to clean but be sure you keep care with the bearings out. They are not sealed and can be lost. The lockup is probably the most frustrating aspect to me. It is extremely hard to open the frame lock to close the knife. I get about 90% lockup on the blade and it takes a finger-smashing amount of pressure to unlock it. Aside from these two issues I love the knife and I'm certainly glad it is in my collection.
