Just got these two, the Brous is an exclusive run of 100 and is a full tang S35V with milled CF handles. Feels pretty good in the hand but the overall handle is gonna feel thin if you have larger hands. Love the way this one looks. Probably is not going to see much use, more collector piece for me.

The ZT 0180 though, wow I really like that one. Feels really solid, good weight to it. The blade steel is Vandis 4 Extra which I've read is an excellent all around steel ("Vanadis 4 Extra is an interesting steel. It has better edge holding than CPM 3V and is tougher than M4."). Fits perfectly in hand. I have a few fixed blades knives and this might be my new favorite. Will definitely get some use. You guys have a favorite fixed blade?

Nice blades - I prefer thinner blades but then most of my knives are for kitchen use and these days there's very little need for heavier blades
I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!

I like the look of the ZT. Looks like a pretty practical outdoor knife. I would probably prefer that the deep finger contours not be so pronounced and spine jimping doesn't excite me, but is not a deal breaker. What thickness is the blade?

I have too many favorites to pick just one.

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get use to it.
