    Zero Tolerance. Mine is the 0200ST, which is out of production and hard to find.

    The 0350 is a little smaller, 3.25 blade vs 4.0, and the 350 has assisted opening.

    US made, extremely durable, very high quality. Incredible ergonomics. Pretty affordable for a really good knife...about $140. I like serrated, but it comes both ways.

    I carried most of my life, some kind of Case XX bonehandled knife, because my late father carried one as far back as I can remember in the early 60s. I have them scattered all over the house. I recently bought a modern assisted opener, flipper, Kershaw. I was so impressed with the mechanism, I bought a couple Snap-On Leek models. Nice little knife with all the features, cheap and the red with logo gives it a less sinister look to the city folk that think everything is illegal here. I liked it so much I got one for a friend. He thought it was cool too.

    What I always have in pocket > https://www.gerbergear.com/en-us/activity/serve/serve-collection/dime-black-30-000469 has everything I need, even tweezers and also carry:

    (Note on the below) > you can find these much cheaper at other sites, Blade HQ or Amazon)

    Benchmade Bugout > https://www.benchmade.com/bugout-family.html Light, flickable, sharp, sits low in pocket and did I say light?

    also recommend (I have all of these)

    Benchmade Griptillain > https://www.benchmade.com/griptilian-family.html?customize=1#/product/bmk-pro-grip-full heavier than Bugout, nice blade, flickable, feels good in my hands when using

    Spyderco Para 3 - https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details/C223GBK/Para-trade-3-G-10-Black-Black-Blade/1048 light, flicks easy but takes getting used to, sharp and easy to carry

    Either knife works well... Not to large, fits well in pocket. Kershaw or Columbia River work well.
    Really hold an edge without resharpening.IMG_20200204_153055.jpg

    Spyderco Paysan slender, light weight, pivots on ball bearings so it opens as fast as an automatic with just the flick of the wrist. Only problem....it doesn’t have a bottle opener

    but it’s a great EDC...long blade and scary surgical sharp.
