I bought a few of the discontinued ZTs this year and this one is the one that's ended up in my pocket most days. It cuts well, the handle is comfortable, deployment feels good, and the liner lock is thicker than the cutouts in most frame locks. I doubt it's a weaker knife in any way than comparably built and priced frame locks. The clip holds it in my pocket and hasn't bent or scratched anything so I'm fine with it. I wish I'd picked up another at 99 last week.
