    What's not to like in ZT? Weeeellllll there's the flippers, the AO, the recurves and the high weight. Different strokes and all but I'll be sticking to my Spydercos.

    Mine came in today. . . .

    Thanks for the Swick pic. I now know that the one I own is a Swick 1. I had two sheaths made for it; one for neck and one for belt so I'm hoping the 3 fits them.
