    I've just bought a ZT 0770 CF, and a ZT 0562 CF...

    I'm on a roll! What's good?

    ZT are excellent. I'd have to say my favorite knife is my Spyderco Endura (technically not a flipper). I've cleaned lots of game with it and use it every day at work

    I have a ZT560 (flipper mechanism) with milled titanium and FDE G-10 slabs and incredible Elmax steel on my belt right now.
    I don't leave home without it. In fact, it never leaves my hip. Except when I'm asleep...:crazyguy

    It is perhaps the most excellent mid-tech tactical knife I've ever owned.

    I have a Spyderco Delica and Endura, because I accidentally ordered the Endura. It's too long of a blade for legal EDC.

    I have two, identical, Kershaw flippers. Cheap, easy to sharpen, and practical.

    Say Karlos, please refer to them as automatic knives. That's what they are called today. Sounds less threatening. I know, I know it's politically correct. But it's the only political correctitude I subscribe to...

    Thank you!

    What does the term "Flipper" mean? Assisted open?

    This. Being a lefty I like flippers since alot of knives aren't ambidextrous and the clip gets in the way of the thumb stud.

    I bought a case of CRKT G-10 grip M-21 Carsons. gave them to my workers and son in laws and friends, my EDC for several years now. one hand opens really fast, positive blade lock is a nice feature
