I'm actually really liking the aluminum so far. I sent an email to Kershaw last night asking if I could get a set of Blur standoffs for it, and had an email back this morning saying she'd get some in the mail for me right away. I'm thinkin' they'll finish this one off nicely.

Here's the Hankins custom fighter I got a few days ago. It has a 4.75" long, 3/16" thick, titanium Robar NP3 coated 5160 high carbon steel with really cool almost woodgrain pattern carbon fiber scales, which are removable with chicago style hex screws. The blade is very aggressively hollow ground up to the tip, which is convexed, lending excellent cutting power and maintaining a very strong tip. It has large, but not rough jimping at the thumb and heal, and is overall a very sturdy yet quick knife. Came with a simple but secure leather pouch style sheath for under $200.

No pics yet, but I picked up four Randall Made Knives:
#23 Gamemaster. Stainless, Nickel Silver Hilt, Maroon Micarta
#21 Little Game. Carbon, Dark Stag
#15 Airman. Stainless, Nickel Silver Double Hilt, Green Micarta finger grooves
Randall Made Tailor's Knife

I am a huge fan of Randall Made Knives. As far as what's on the list? I think I'm good for the time being!

So, if someone was between an Emerson and a Zero Tolerance, what would you recommend and why?

I know both are outstanding knives but, at least in this thread, I'm seeing a LOT more ZT and hearing lots of positive experiences.

So, prices being roughly equal, Emerson or ZT?

Thanks in advance!

Emerson.

Small batches tend to yield better quality control.

Not as clunky and heavy as most ZT's I've owned.

Easily re-sellable on the secondary market. Almost a cult like following.

The company most attributed to the "tactical" knife market.

What really matters is what you intend to use the knife for and then pick one that closely matches your needs and not really worry about the name if quality and materials are similar.

I agree, most ZTs are way too clunky. I like Emerson's no nonsense style, i just wish he'd step up the steel game. I've heard his reasoning for using only 154cm which is fine, but he could offer other steels as well IMO.

Emersons do absolutely nothing for me, and I like ZTs, so....

Have/owned both. Emerson. Love the feel and function. Not knocking ZT, but for me EKI.

Finally got around to it. It started out as a taco, but due to the thickness of the spine, ended up as a pancake. Even managed to use the same piece of kydex. It's not perfect, but it came out pretty well, and is much more practical than the leather pouch sheath.
