Perfect 2 inch blade
PETER B. on Jan 21, 2019

I wish I could have a larger knife with the same specs that worked as well. Beautiful flat ground S35VN blade, beautiful titanium handle with integrated lanyard hole, etc. I had the earlier Bestech "Sapphire" but this is wider, but not thicker, so it's much easier to hold without touching the lock bar. The detent on mine is strong enough to rocket the blade out faster than I can see. Good thing it has the steel lockbar insert.

I have had my Zen for 6 months or more and I just love it! Bestech's Fit and Finish are really impressive (and I have several higher end knives both custom and otherwise). This is really my go to toss in the pocket EDC and I have never thought, "Darn, I wish I would have carried "x" instead". Highly recommend!

before I wasn't impressed with this knife but its grown on me in the past 6 months. Before it was having issues with the blade getting blade play and getting off center. this issue is actually easily fixed because it has a flat head pivot so all you have to do is give it a quick twist and that fixes the issue. its still a bad thing to have to go fix it constantly but alittle lock tight would do the trick if thats a big problem for you. The action is really good on this little guy and the detent is really crisp. It came out with a crazy sharp edge and after using this for months the edge is still very good and i haven't done a single thing to it. I'd recommend this knife for people looking for something to do light use and wants a solid useful knife that is easy in the pocket, and is super sharp right out of the box and ready to rock. It turns out to be popular with girls because it works better with small hands, is ascetically pleasing, and doesn't have a "scary" murder look that other knives have that might scare your co-workers. I'm really happy to upgrade my review from a 2 to a 5!
