Amazing Knife!

This is my first ZT knife and I could not be more impressed. First off the design is fantastic. I am absolutely in love with the blade shape and the way the knife feels in my hand. The weight of the knife is also very satisfying. Out of the box, it was a little stiff but it does loosen up pretty fast. I've carried this knife almost exclusively for almost 6 months now and I'm still in love with it. Definitely looking for more ZTs to pick up!

I am loving this blade. Feels great in my hand with no hotspots. Out of the box, the blade is a little stiff and took a little bit to loosen up. I just did a servicing on it to try and get the flipping action a little smoother and the pivot screw has a ton of thread locker on it. After clearing that out and cleaning and lubing the pivot bearings, things were much better. I would totally recommend this knife for EDC or any other carry.
Great Knife!

The blue is darker than it shows in the picture and looks great. The blade steal is awesome and the knife has a great feel in the hand. I can use this knife as an EDC and take it to more high end events as my CC. This was my first ZT buy and I'll look to be back around at some point.

I got my 0393 about a week before BladeHQ marked it Out-of-Stock. Don't know if they will get more, but I'm glad I got mine when I did. It's great in about every way. A little more compact than I expected and not a bad EDC knife. Smooth action and very comfortable in the hand. Reassuringly solid and my new favorite knife.

Amazing action straight out the box, excellent fit and finish.

Blue ano is darker than in pictures but looks great.

G10 overlay works incredibly well to avoid dead lock from frame bar pushing on detent.

Only problem is the pocket clip, replaced mine with mxggear and it was perfect.

Finally, if you can get one- do it!

This knife.... What can I say, it's built like a tank, it's got great steel, the grips are comfortable, it's light (for a ZT), and it's a conversation starter. The blade profile, the shape of the grips, the grind, it's all superb.

It was very stiff and took a tough finger to actuate the flipper out of the box, but a week on the couch with it either has my finger turned to stone or it has softened greatly and not only has solid lock-up but a smooth reasonable flip.

This is my second ZT and the first one I like. Worry not, this one is a good one.

Have had this knife for a week. I wanted to wait a little longer to write a review, but I figured they may soon be gone and if I could help someone pull the trigger, then why not. Everything you read in the prior reviews is spot on. Looks spectacular, feels great in the hand and is solidly built. Tight flipper starting to loosen up, with a smooth, fast open and a crisp lock-up. A unique blade shape that will stand out in any collection. I could go on and on. Great knife, so glad I bought it! Thanks ZT and BladeHQ!

I picked this knife up about a month ago. Initially I was worried because you had to really press the flipper hard in order for the knife to open. Now that I've had the knife long enough to break it in I have almost no complaints. Solid lock, fast and smooth bearing system, great blade... just wish they could've lost the G10 and went with a full Titanium model. Overall, I still love this knife and don't regret buying it for a second!
Rock solid!

Itís not a ZT if itís not built like a tank! Solid lockup, slightly early but nothing to worry about. The texturing on the g10 feels great and combined with the beefy jimping this knife isnít going anywhere. Topping it all off the anodizing, two-tone finish, and blade grind make this one sweet knife!

Just received this knife 15 minutes ago, so no usage on it aside from flipping it a few times. My first ZT and first flipper. It's a beautiful knife, better in hand than the pictures would indicate. I had it engraved for my wife as a commemorative blade, so I won't likely use it much. Blade is well centered, the action is smooth, but tight, as in no slop, just smooth and crisp to open. The blade is sharp, the grind is even and clean. Fits my hand well. It's everything I was hoping. Probably won't get much pocket time, but it will look great in my display case. She'll be the prettiest girl at the dance.

This is my initial review as I have had 0393 in my pocket for less than 24 hours. But I don't think it hyperbole to say this is the best knife I have ever had. The action is incredible. I love the steel - in have a Grip in 20CV and a couple in Bohler M390 - so I have some familiarity with it. Great ergonomics. My only complaint is the clip, but I have heard the 0393 will take Hinderer hardware. Looks great, feels great, and the action is like butter.

American made CPM 20CV Steel, Rick Hinderer Design (Eklipse), Titanium/G-10 Handles... Now mix it all together at the ZT factory in Tualatin, OR... and you end up with a fantastic folding knife that is truly a joy to hold in hand! Another Zero Tolerance blade I would recommend from the Hinderer/ZT line up!

I have both the 0462 and the 0393 from the 2018 lineup. I find this knife in my pocket the most because of itís toughness and quality of materials. I feel completely confident carrying it to work in a military setting. Itís stylish looks also make it good for a day where Iím just rocking a t-shirt and jeans as well! Great job to ZT on this build!

Beautiful. Hinderer lines and ergonomics with ZT's quality and pricing. Premium CPM 20CV steel, titanium liners and G-10 overlays make it the perfect weight. I own XM-18's this was my first experience with the KVT bearing system. Wow. It fires open. Pristine Hinderer harpoon spanto with satin grinds and DLC coat flats make it very aesthetically pleasing. I put blue Hinderer pocket clip and tabs on. SO glad i bought this knife.

This knife truly is built like a tank. I like all 3 2018 versions that ZT put out, but I have to admit while the 0462 is my personal favorite, the 0393 is the most rugged knife of the bunch. Reminds me of the older ZTís which is a good thing. Only difference is theyíve upgraded to ďsuper steelĒ, something they previously saved for sprint runs and limited editions. Way to go ZT for another beautiful, well built knife.

ZT did it again. This knife looks, feels and functions like a custom knife. 5oz is the listed weight, but for some reason, it feels a bit lighter. The two tone blade, blue anodizing, and black G-10 make for an impressive presentation, and basically any custum Hinderer hardware will look awesome. I am impressed.
