Our knives are built to last. Cleaning and caring for your knife will maintain performance and enhance the life of your knife.

Tips for Caring Folding Knives
  • Keep your knife dry; that means the entire knife, not just the blade.
  • Keep your knife clean, particularly moving parts and locking devices.
  • Keep your knife oiled; especially pivot points and the blade. Oil at least twice a year.
  • Keep your knife sharp; a sharp blade is safer than a dull one.
  • Again, store your knife in a dry place.
Tips for Caring Kitchen Knives
  • Always use an appropriate cutting board in the kitchen to get the most out of the sharpness of your knives.
  • Cleaning knives after each use will keep them in the best condition and promote food safety.
  • Knives require a safe dry storage place, and a knife block is perfect for storing knives.

What a Great Knife

Very good Knife. I got mine 5 weeks ago, since then the knife is in my pocket.
It cuts with the ZDP 189 very well, it is hardenend around 67 HRC. The Frontflipper Action is also very good by this Titanium Frame Lock Folder. Fast shipping from Katsu Knife by PostNL to Europe(Germany), only 2 weeks.

Nice knife

Just another good one for the collection

Very satisfied

This is my 2nd ZK01. First was from Amazon at same price. Was so impressed I wanted another. Was not available on Amazon, so I ordered directly from Katsu. They chose a very good chinese oem for this model as both are flawless. I'm guessing Reate or maybe even We knife. Expect slow, non updated shipping, but worth the wait. Highly recommend this model.

Better than I ever hoped

I bought my ZK01 on Amazon for fast delivery. It arrived yesterday (USA). I was very pleased with the packaging and the contents. The knife is very well put together, with good fit and finish.
The action is very smooth and the blade drops shut fairly easily, so I have to be careful not to let the blade drop onto my finger when closing it. I can put some light pressure on the front flipper as the blade closes to keep it from closing on my finger. The front flipper works great, unlike some other front flipper knives I've tried.
And the blade edge is very sharp. I wish I could find out what kind of steel the ZDP core is sandwiched between, so I don't know how much that part will scratch over time. I was happy that it included a hardness test certificate - HV 898 is about RC 66, which is very hard.
Lastly, I have not used the sheath yet, but it's a nice addition and I was very happy that it smells just like a USA made cowboy boot and doesn't stink like some chinese leather watch straps I once bought off etsy.

My youtube short link wasn't accepted so I moved it here
