    Edited -

    The knife is here. I pulled it out of the box and I have some mixed feelings about it.

    The materials as chosen for the knife are good calls, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired for the active user.

    I spent some time "playing" with it already, and while it has promise, in it's current form it is disappointing.

    The details on this knife suck. Period. End of story.

    It's really a shame since the knife is not a bad idea conceptually, but the details are where it just falls apart.

    There is a lot to like here, but for $295 retail, these problems should have been addressed from the design table forward, or they should fire the accountant and have a knifemaker who uses knives in control of production.

    I will get into my likes, dislikes, the performance of the knife and the specific improvements needed maybe over the weekend, or by latest mid-week next week.

    Ron yelled at me yesterday - I have completed half the write-up for the ZT100, will get the other half done in the next day or so.

    I'll take some pics of it to go with few of the details as well.

    Pat, I've got it - got caught in some other stuff and forgot about it (and it got buried on my desk.....I know, I know....)

    I'm sending it out today - it's headed to Uncle Jarvis and if I had the time today or Fri I'd just drive it to him since he's about 30 min from here.

    Farmall, chill it down a notch. Sometimes folks lose the shipping receipt and all that. Pat just wants to know where it is.

    If you want to get technical....You never posted that you received it and "two days from tomorrow" is still well beyond the 2 week period of user time.

    the ZT 0100 arrived today, My first impressions are WOW this is sure beefy. I also really like the sheath, it fits the knife like a glove, a perfect match

    I will give it the once over this week and send it on it's way. Thanks again for this passaround opportunity
