Customer Reviews

Way too cool...
Pat J. on Dec 12, 2019

This knife has the best cool factor out of any knife I own. The glow in the dark scales makes it so. The blade shape that I love makes it a must have for me and it’s not too heavy at all at 5 oz on my scale for a blade this size. I’m not sure if it was done intentionally but the flipper tab has jimping on the opposite side. Checked pics of others and it seems to be very common. It’s not a deal breaker at all the knife flips and drops butter smooth like most ZT’s and the detent is solid....

All around great knife !
Phill K. on Sep 6, 2021

There are so many reasons to love the ZT0393GLCF... The blade shape, the action opening and closing this knife is buttery smooth, the blade shape is excellent for all kinds of cutting chores, the quality of build and of course the unique and amazing glow carbon fiber scales. Come on... who does not love glow in the dark !!! I liked all the features of this ZT before I purchased it... but once I got it in hand and felt how good it was... I just could not stop fidgeting with it. The knife is a great daily carry and a joy to handle and play with.

Thanks! Glad you like it!
Well designed kinfe
Douglas C. on Mar 14, 2020

I own many knives and have worked on many knives and this is one of the best I have ever held in my hands. The knife is big and at first glance you would think its going to be heavy and awkward. But that is the farthest thing from reality. This knife is much lighter than you would think it should be. The blade is an awesome design and made from CPM 20CV steel. It is very thick on the top line and looks like it will take a lot of abuse. I have not had to sharpen it but if its like other CPM 20CV steel it will take a little while to get the edge back to its original factory spec. The handle is ergonomically perfect for my hands. It fits well in your hands any way you hold it and I feel confident using it for a wide variety of tasks. The blade is tight in the handle and there is no play at all when the blade is deployed. The locking mechanism is very well made like all ZT knives. The clip keeps your knife right where you place it and doesn't move around like some other knives I have carried. This is an all around solid everyday carry knfe. WELL DONE !!!

Quality Knife, Quality Materials.
Erik Z. on Jun 12, 2021

This isn't my first ZT, i've purchased the 0460Ti as a gift for my brother, and I was always impressed with their titanium frame lock folders. Just could never justify getting myself one for some time. I've only had the 0393 for about two weeks now and I think it is a great, quality knife. This knife feels like a tank. The way ZT works on their titanium really left my mouth agape when I compared the quality in workmanship to that of other aftermarket offerings for popular folding knives. The underside of the scales are beautifully smooth, and I can't detect a single burr, not even on the lower half of the gimping where your pinky and ring finger rest. The "Working Finish" is a well done stonewashing that does seem to hide scratches really well. My only complaint about an otherwise fantastic knife is the flipper tab. I don't understand why ZT put the gimping on the wrong side (lower side) of the tab. Not once will your finger ever utilize that to assist in opening. Side bonus, you can use the blade stops as a deployment method. The clip isn't the my type, but that's easily remedied along with the scales if you don't personally like them.

Nearly The Perfect Knife
Timothy F. on Aug 6, 2020

This is easily one of the top ten flippers made. ZT quality and as they say overbuilt. Great everyday carry for any task. Looks nice but not fancy. This is a working knife that is a dream. Worth every penny and then some. You won’t be dissapolnted.

Holy CF Batman!
Jed B. on Mar 12, 2019

Great fit and finish. The Glow-in-the-dark CF is the major draw to this blade for me. Let’s talk about the blade, beautiful shape but holy smokes is this sucker thick behind the edge. My Spyderco Nirvana was ground to cut better than this beauty. Cutting into cardboard, I can get about half-way up the blade before it starts binding and I really have to start working to get it further. If you are looking for a knife with cool factor, look no further. If you are looking for a slicey knife then do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

DEREK B. on Jun 8, 2022

I paid ~$340 for this knife and when I pay for a premium product I expect premium quality. Out the box the GLCF scales were scuffed on both sides in 4 places. There was an immediate rattling noise when lightly shaking the knife. The action is very lazy and the detent isn't super strong. Both when deploying and closing the knife I can feel and hear the knife rubbing. I can obviously take it apart and probably clean it up and get it working better, but I paid for a premium product made in the USA and there is little, at best, quality control going on wherever my knife was produced. I am in the process of getting a refund and will be staying away from ZT for a while. I have a ZT 0470 which I carry everyday and was perfect out of the box. This whole experience has left a bad taste in my mouth. Sincerely, Disappointed.
