    I'm about to purchase a ZT CF562, but came across this one:
    http://www.knifeart.com/lionsteeltrecf.html

    the difference is only 60 bucks, which one would be better?

    I carry big folders, and just common chores

    thanks

    Those are VERY different knives. If you're used to carrying big folders, I'd suggest you stick with the 0562CF.

    I was looking at the Lionsteel TRE as well, but a 2.91" blade is just too small for my EDC. I think that's even shorter than the Small Sebenza.

    The SR1/A series are certainly big enough but no CF on those. As to which would be better, both brands are highly regarded and well made.

    okay, so apples to apples comparison, the lionsteel SR1 black aluminum on black blade or the ZT CF562? Im torn between the two, if someone has both or has handled both, which one would you choose?

    thanks guys

    I found the handles of the SR1 to be very slippery, which is why I sold mine. The TRE has IKBS vs the ZT's caged bearings, just to note.

    Lionsteel is one of my favorite brands, and I really like my SR1 but I consider the ZT 0562CF one of the finest flipper EDC knives you can own. I absolutely love that knife, and just 'had' to buy a backup one just in case.
