    What are your thoughts on the Zk chopstick


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hey guys I'm interested in the ZK chopstick. I already have a pestilence chopper and I'm wondering if there's any type of performance benefit to acquiring the chopsticks as well. I can see from reviews that the chopstick is 1 inch shorter and a little heavier. My concern from watching the YouTube videos is that the chopstck appears to have a very acute saber grind while maintaining a quarter inch thickness through the entire width of the blade. My concern is that this will severely compromise its chopping ability on wood and if so what is the proposed usage--chopping through metal and prying?

    Not thought of too highly I suppose.

    Out of all the ZK knives I like the chopstick and death dagger the most...I dont either yet but from looks and the fact that they're a Ka-Bar product I reckon they're pretty good. When I get some other knives done I might pick up one of the ZK knives and a warthog to customize...Be patient with the responses aswell, the Ka-Bar forum isnt as active as it should be.

    If batonning is your thing I can't think of a better kabar or becker for the job. And it will chop like the dickens, I don't own one but it is pretty easy to figure out from the dimensions if you've hefted a few choppers on some wood.

    Like a combat "froe"

    I also like the chopstick the best out of the Zombie series. Whats not to like ? Full tang, 2 different color grips, nice spike on tip, nice hook on tang (both of which could be made to be ultra-nasty sharp, with minimal work), nice sheath & an extra knife with it (while supplies last). All this for a super reasonable price. This is the one i would own.

    If you look at this link : http://military-knives.110mb.com/machete.html . You'll see the oriiginal ww2 pre zombie blade that inspired the chopstick ( well I'd guess)

    That is cool. Sure looks like it, only a wider blade.

    I own the chopstick, had it for a month and I think it's solid. The chopstick cut my buddy twice because he wanted to see it and he's not too good with his hands I suppose. I have not used it for anything yet, kind of a trophy at this point. I think is very well made and for the $60 I paid its worth every penny.
