    Just had to thank the community I had never heard of ZT before coming onton this forum and I happend to see one at my local B&M store today. Had a look at it and needless to say walked right out with it five minutes later. Could not be happier with the 350. Perfect size, smooth opening even my Benchmade cant compare to and the G-10 is just wonderful.

    Hang out in the Kershaw/ZT forum and you'll probably buy more....maybe the new ZT 560/561.

    Funny, I got my first ZT (350) the other day in the post and could not agree with you more!
    Now, for a 550 or 551 and then....

    Check out Kershawguy in the dealer forum. He'll fix you up. He's got 0350 blems for 85 bucks shipped.

    Mine's a blem,and I couldn't tell it when I got it.doesn't really matter any more.I bought it to use,not look at,so a small cosmetic blem(that I couldn't find) doesn't bother me.Definitely check out Kershaw guy.Great to deal with and leaves some coin in your pocket for the next purchase.I'll say this,go ahead and get yourself the little torx tool Kershaw makes for use with the screws on their knives,very handy and well worth it.My tax refund will be along soon,picking out my next ZT is going to be hard,but guaranteed if Kershawguy has a blem in stock,it will come from him.

    The 0350 is okay for a starter ZT, but you should go ahead and move on up to a 0200 or 0300, that's what ZT is all about. :D

    I have several Kershaws. Blur, Skyline, Needs work etc. When I found the ZT line, I fell in love with the 300. I was at a knife shop in Utah and had the chance to play with the 300, 200 and 350. I held everything in the shop from a strider, para 2 to a emerson. I kept going back to the 350. Loved the fit, finish. G-10 grip is awesome, weight is nice and fits my hand perfect, like a custom knife built for me.

    After having the ZT 350 for a few weeks, my other knifes feel like toys or "gentlemen knifes". The ZT 350 feels like I could shove through a car door and then slice some cheese for lunch.

    I found a 350 for the right price and got it.
    For value I don't think anything comes close to it. Maybe the 200, which is on my radar. The 300 is a nice knife. But I wanted a edc user and I knew the 300 was just to big for me. I want to hold the 561. But it will have to really impress me to get my 350 out of my pocket and at $130 more then my 350? we will have to see....

    I was using a BM 530 as my edc and its night and day. Great little knife, but it cannot even compare to the 350. plus I dont feel like im going to break the 350 : )

    TheWook, you've certainly picked a great first ZT blade. The 350 really surprised me in a good way. I need to carry it more. Enjoy your knife! It won't be the last ZT.

    Yeah I remember when I first got my ZT 350 man the fit and finish was extraordinary. Good Call. I also like the BM530 for IWB.

    My first ZT was a 302 when they first came out and I was hooked! After that I got a 0200, 0500, 0650, and recently a 0550. I've also had a 0560 on pre order since 6/15/11. Its very addictive.

    I've been using my 0350 pretty heavily the couple days. Today, I just touched it up on a leather pad charged with green compound and it's back to razor sharp.

    My 350 is a great knife. It has me hooked on ZT/Kershaw. I now have a 550 and a blackout. I'm eyeing a 200 and leek next...enjoy!
