I was impressed with the fit and feel of the ZT’s I was looking at. I actually came close to getting one of those instead, but I opted for this one for several reasons. None of those reasons are really very good, but they worked for me… lol
I also have an ESEE that is my go-to truck neck knife. Great blades and when coupled with the right sheath, spine is square off, and toss in a good firesteel, they make what I call a “bushcraft crossover.” It is still light and nice for hunting purposes, could theoretically still be a good fighting knife, but is tough enough to baton with and start fires. Good choice as your companion knife…. I approve….
