What a knife!

It arrived in perfect condition and razor sharp. It's built like a safe. Tested it on rope, softwood,and twine to start, like cutting butter. The G10 handles give a secure hold even with wet hands. Love this knife. My edc has been my Endura.which is .84oz. lighter and blade is about 3/8" longer. Stretch has a more secure grip.

A Real Surprise Stunner

I think this may be the first time I've given a knife five stars, and this one deserves it. I've had the knife for about a month now, and used it for cutting packages, cardboard, food prep, and some light carving on a block of soft wood (just to see how it felt). It's been impressive to say the least. The G10 on the handle is perfect. I say again, perfect. Just the right combination of texture and thickness to make holding this thing almost a pleasure while cutting. The blade is similarly spectacular, it cut like a dang laser beam when I tried it out on cardboard. The edge retention was really, really good to. After cutting cardboard for over 30 minutes all I had to do was strop it a few times and the edge was good to go again. It's a real shame they've discontinued this model. It's one of the very few knives I'd consider buying again just to have a spare. Get this while you can, that's my advice!

ZDP-189 under $200 whats to think about

Sharpest knife i have received from the factory, SCARY SHARP! I have to cut multiple things at work everyday and this blade has stayed razor sharp for a month so far. My S30V knives lose the razor edge after about 2 weeks, S35V will go a little longer but this ZDP-189 is amazing. If you like M390 you have to try one of these. Stretch2 is a comfortable knife very sturdy and coming out of Japan fit and finish is good have not been disappointed yet coming from there.

It's As Sharp as Sharp Gets

I just got this knife today and I love it. Mostly because of the the steel used, I'll always be a sucker for any knife made with one of the top 3-4 steels and I rate this ZDP-189 at the top right now. You can pay $2,000.00+ on a Rockstead knife, the same size, with the same steel. So, when I saw I could get this knife at such a good price, I jumped to see if it was really that good. It's no Rockstead, but the steel just might be and that's enough to make me happy with this knife. For me, knives are only good if they are razor sharp and once they get a little less than that, you have nothing special in your pocket, this steel stays razor sharp better and longer than any other steel. The fact that it fits the hand really well is a plus, The brown is growing on me, and I do like this knife a lot. It's a little hard to open and close but I think that will change with use. I'm used to very high quality knives and this one belongs in my collection, not just because of the top steel, it feels great to use, once it's open. It's thin to carry, has a medium size to it, it could be perfect if it's your only knife.
