    Looks like a Kershaw sprint run that accentually got branded ZT at the factory and they decided to just go with it.

    Yeah, I honestly don't mind Speedsafe, but I just ordered the LE Knockout with M390 and carbon fiber scales instead. Cost quite a bit less, too.

    I'd as soon have speedsafe as an auto, in fact Kershaw sent me some replacement torsion bar springs just last week for a couple of 20 year old Blackouts. Great customer service.

    The ZT 0566 weighs 5.4oz with stainless steel liners and a thick stainless steel lockbar! The Hinderer XM-18 3.5' skinny, which is a longer knife by 0.55" and the blade is thicker by 0.019" (handle thickness is similar), and also doesn't have any weight reduction cut out in the liners, still weighs in at 4.7oz . Meaning, a titanium 0566 on KVT would be even lighter than the 4.7oz(as it is a smaller knife), putting it in the exact same weight range as the 0357, if not even lighter(especially if ZT milled the liners). I will take the 0566 ergonomics and blade over the 0357 anyday also.

    All I want from ZT is 0562 Mini in both TI & CF with 20CV, KVT and Titanium Frame Lock. Kind of like XM-18 3" where XM-18 3.5" is ZT 0562.

    ZT 0562 Mini specs should be:
    • Blade length: 2.99"
    • Blade thickness: 0.12"
    • Weight: 3-3.5 oz.

    and thats why i dont like it .. they cheaped out with a big heavy stainless scale and lockbar vs titanium on the 0562
    and unless you are batoning it or doing endless spine whacks a liner lock is just fine.. i own dozens and have never ever had one fail

    i will take the 1.5 oz savings in my pocket

    I guess you missed a part of yamsi12 post (I put it in bold) in which you replied "still to heavy". His post did state the upgrade should also include milled titanium.

    What is the symbol with the circle and the line on the blade?

    They are using this symbol to brand their in-house designs. I believe the 0308 was the first to have it.

    It’s a shame it’s speedsafe.

    "ZT Originals" in-house designs as opposed to other designers of ZT knives like Sinkevich, Hinderer, Anso, etc.

    On the ZT website they list 4 current production models as "ZT Originals": 0770CF, 0308, 0357, 0357BW.

    Man, it's just so...so generic and boring looking. It also looks like a TON of Kershaws they've done before.

    I'm assuming washers on that 0357...

    Anyone pick one up yet?

    Can't find that detail.

    edit: phosphor bronze washers.

    Thanx @whitty for your YT review and teardown.

    Wait, how do you take the knife apart? Isn't it riveted or something?

    Thanks for letting us know! I may have to finally pull the trigger on a 0350ts. Its crazy how there's still 0055s in stock given they've been discontinued quite a while.
