The Artisan Cutlery Zumwalt is a heavy duty EDC folder inspired by the U.S. Navy destroyer of the same name. It's outfitted with a reversible deep-carry pocket clip for ambidextrous use. A G-10 backspacer and an integrated lanyard loop finish off the solid EDC design.
Artisan Cutlery is devoted to crafted high-performance EDCs at a reasonable price, so you don't have to decide between a knife that works hard and one that doesn't break the bank!
This is why Chinese made knives are killing their competition. Ergos: good but could use gimping where the thumb rests on the back of the blade. Blade: not as wide as I would like and the flat grind starts a bit low but very sharp out of box. Action: this is where this knife shines, it's as smooth as my WE 617 because both run on ceramic bearings. Light switch or push button methods both work. Lockup and detent: lockup is early and 100%, detent is medium can't shake it out and it isn't hard to actuate. Fit and finish: above average for a 60$ knife, minor nitpicks are an uneven plunge grind towards the tip and slightly uneven swedge grinds but overall not bad. Pocket clip: low tension loopover deep carry clip like the one on my realsteel and tangram, knife buries nearly 100% and is tip up left or right hand carry. All in all, deep carry clip, amazing action, D2 steel, attractive handle design makes this a no brainer at 60$.
