Summary: I bought two of these off the ZT website last week and rec'd them yesterday, turned around this morning and cleaned them out of their last six. These suckers are badass, there's really nothing more than needs to be said. Here's what ZT has to say about them:
"The Bushlicker marks a number of firsts for ZT. It's our first practical bushcraft knife, of a size, blade profile, and grind meant for the work of survival in the woods. Skinning, whittling, notching….it even has a hard 90 degree spin meant for striking a ferro rod for firestarting. Yup, we're talking at you, boy scout.
The Bushlicker is also our first foray into other materials: the steel is the tough-as-fuck German 80CRV2; the handle is G10 laminate with a sexy red Kydex liner. In other words, this blade will outlive you.
Finally, the Bushlicker is our first limited edition blade. We've made a few dozen of these for release this holiday season, and they can be in your hand by Christmas.
The blade comes stock with a very nice leather drop sheath so the 'Licker can ride at your side through the thick of it."
11 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. There are a boatload of knives that will last a lifetime, this one will look nasty nice doing it and may even get you a chick or two. Grab a few, you're friends are going to steal yours if they have no way to get their own. Thanks and good luck.
