They are built like tanks, but at the expense of weight. My 350 never leaves the house. Sure is pretty to look at though.

FYI, there is simply no comparison in weight between the 0350 and 0450CF...

0450CF:
Closed Length: 4.1 in. (10.4 cm)
Overall Length: 7.4 in. (18.8 cm)
Weight: 2.45 oz. (68 g)
0350:
Closed Length: 4.6 in. (11.7 cm)
Overall Length: 7.6 in. (19.3 cm)
Weight: 6.2 oz. (175.8 g)

Great knives, though mine also rarely leave the house and I leave my inexpensive sanrenmu beaters for the car/garage. Unfortunately I no longer EDC a folder because of over-sensitized coworkers, even opening a letter with a small folder is apparently reason enough to be ratted out to management for carrying a weapon at work.

There was a hot deal last year on ZT at amazon, too bad the Ti 801 didn't get shipped out due to insufficient stock http://forums.redflagdeals.com/amazon-c ... 2-2083488/

I don’t own a ZT but hear people who own lots of knives love them. I guess not really different from spyderco. The knife seems inflated in price to start with and house of knives generally has a steep markup for folders. Pretty much any folder maker does.

If your feeling adventurous look up Brous blades based out of USA. Custom maker with same style of designs and a bit more flare. Roughly same prices give or take.

It’s pretty light and thin so don’t expect a chopper.
Blade Length: 3.25 in. (8.3 cm)
Blade Thickness: 0.121 in. (0.307 cm)
Closed Length: 4.1 in. (10.4 cm)
Overall Length: 7.4 in. (18.8 cm)
Weight: 2.45 oz. (68 g)

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

Poor wallet.

Great deal, but folding knives definitely were my most useless hobby.

There are like 0 hobbyists around me and when I pulled anything tactical looking out to lend or use, most people were extra cautious since they just look intimidating. Nice to look and play with, but impractical to use around others.

Now I carry a Spyderco Roadie, it's too cute to scare anyone. but the euro-vg10 holds a good edge.

I only mention this for anyone who's getting too deep into the rabbit hole. It's easy to get carried away buying knives (and they re-sell poorly on craigslist), but really I just open packages with it, and you don't need a half serrated tanto or something for that.

I like seeing these knife posts here on RFD, but the only problem is that there are not nearly enough of them, and the prices are not as hot as I would like to see. I have spent more money on knives as a hobby than I have on watches, guns, and tools (which is quite a lot), and I somewhat agree with @Sypsy in that folders have limited utility (****FOR MYSELF). Most of my heavy usage of knives comes from fixed blades that I rely on when I am in the backcountry for splitting wood, and other camp tasks.

That said, I would absolutely love to keep seeing more knife threads here, because although these folders have limited utility for my lifestyle (ymmv), I will absolutely keep buying them.
