    I have been eyeballing this at a local gun shop for weeks. I made an offer that they accepted today. It's totally impractical and I have no use for it but being a ZT fan it seemed like one worth owning. I might mount it on an AR for the next range trip...

    Here it is next to a ZT 0630 and small & large Ritter Griptilians with Wilkins titanium scales. The ZT-9 is a monster.

    Many years ago, I carried one every day in the factory drop-leg rig... Might as well carry it, it screams for use!

    I can't imagine any time in my current lifestyle where I would carry a beast like this. The largest knife I typically have on me is a Benchmade Adamas/581/Large Ritter Grip, ZT 0620, CRK Sebenza 25, or Spyderco Gayle Bradley 1 and they rarely get used. My most carried/used knives are a SAK of some kind, CRK Small Inkosi, Emerson (Multitasker) EDC-1, and Benchmade Small Ritter Grip.

    The ZT-9 will go nicely with my other ZT/Strider collaborations: 0121, 0301, 0303

    7" blade with 5" handle is my EDC sweet spot... Add a slipjoint for precision work.

    A few glamour shots on an AR-15.
    Ironically, I built this as an "everything you need, nothing you don't" rifle. I would say the bayonet falls firmly into the second category.

    I wish I had gotten one bit none of my guns have the lug, I mean none of the ones I had, to whom were sold off a long time ago to a guy named bob, that's all the buyers info I remember.

    It's a well made bayonet but way too heavy. I would never have carried it in the field as an infantryman.

    Ya wanna see eyeballs get huge, watch rioters when a trained Infantry unit fixes razor sharp bayonets. We ended many leftist thugs in Berlin with the older bayonet I wonder what these beasts would have done to those thugs. .

    I don't think I'd like to be on either end of it in that situation. Gory business for sure.
