    I really enjoy both of the named ZTs. That said, I probably carry the 200 more frequently and in a ZO I imagine the more defined point of the tip would make for better penetration to the shut down button. That, and she seems to have taken a fondness for the 300 for now...

    0200 is an amazing knife. Only downside is that the detent is a little weak... but I don't mind.

    Of the 2 in the poll, I got the 0200 first. Its a big folder just like the 0300. The biggest differences are the 3D machined G10 handles vs. the flatter G10/Ti handles on the 0300. Also, liner lock vs. frame lock and manual flipper vs. AO flipper. Regardless of which way you go they're both great beefy folders. For me the 0300/0301 are easier to EDC. Here's a comparison pic of the 0200, 0300, 0301, 0350, 0550, and 0561.



    Ultimately, the correct answer is buy both. Keep both if you like them or sell the one you don't.

    C'mon, really? Really?!

    Nevermind she is smokin' hot', the 300 is easily twice the knife that the 200 is. And I say this as an owner of both.

    Quit putting your girl out there on the boards and take her into a private place and treat her like you should! GEEZ!

    The 0300 fits my hands better and I feel it is a more durable design. I much prefer the integral lock than a liner lock. I now prefer manuals but the 0300 can be a manual. Weight being an issue, the 300 got bumped by the 0560 for me and with a broken in knife with KVT my 560 opens faster with less effort than an assisted 300.

    0300 has better steel, and a stronger design.

    I voted for the 0200 because I voted before you clarified that I get unlimited torsion bar replacements!

    030x series it is! :-D

    (along with the 0560 :-p)

    Damn...just got sucked in and ordered a bead blasted 0200KW. Couldn't help myself. My 0560 will have to wait a little longer now.

    I vote ZT300. My biggest thing is the fact that it Slimmer in the pocket than the ZT200. I like the A/O. I like S30v over 154CM.

    I voted ZT0300 as well. I haven't handled a ZT0200 though, so I'm making some assumptions that may have no basis reality... They are:
    - Titanium frame lock might be stronger and less likely to accidentally disengage (if squeezing the handle) than a steel liner lock
    - Wider blade on the 300 may provide a little more strength/toughness under abuse (prying, impacts, etc.)
    - A/O provides more consistent opening and locking, in case you aren't in a good position to fully open a manual (eg. poor grip on the knife on account of being buried in an awkward position under debris/zombies)

    Good point, the frame lock gives the user more control, a good grip will hold the lock shut. Liner locks dont come with that option.

    I like the 200, no the 301, no the 200. Glad I got both.

    Just received my 0200KW. This is my first ZT by the way. Wow is this thing a beautiful beast! Perfect balance. Love the blade design. Feels great in my hand and my hands are not the extra large type either...I wear a medium size glove. This knife is all business and I love it. I gave my oldest son my Leek composite when I picked up the Cryo. Now the Cryo is owned by my younger son. I have a feeling ZT is going to get a bunch more of my money.
