I might go with the ZT, the Spyderco is lighter and slimmer but I love a good hefty knife, I carry a ESEE 5 when I'm out in the woods, plus the 350 has a flipper which I really like.

I might get a new every day carry knife for my birthday next month, been hesitating between a Spyderco Para 2 or a Zero Tolerance 0350 got any opinions / advice?

Aesop , check out the Kershaw Cryo if you're still looking for a good cheap knife.

Microtech makes some of the best automatics around.
You can also have a look at the Benchmade infidel and the Protech dark angel which are both great knives as well .

I think I'd be happy with a 1911...
And a shotgun...
And an M14.
Yeah that's it.

For the moment it's still in the drawing stage,
The structure is going to be beech and it will be entirely covered in satinwood and spalted maple veneer.
I'll have to remember to take pictures of the progress.

I did the little chess box last year, currently working on the desk you see on the sheet of paper.

Over here you're not allowed to carry a locking or fixed blade without a motive (i.e hunting, fishing, hiking...), but there is no limitation to blade size.

A three position switch near the trigger lets you choose between safe, semi-auto and auto and another one near the magazine changes between 3 round burst and full auto.

I see these almost every time I'm at the train station carried by french soldiers who patrol to prevent terrorist attacks.
Too bad I'll never be able to shoot one.

I'll just say that this thread makes me miss living in the US a little more.

Imo a knife could be compared to a watch, you don't need one but It's nice to have day to day, and was an essential object a couple decades ago.
A lot of craftsmanship goes into both.
As for carrying one everyday, remember that 50 years ago almost every man had a pocket knife on him, they're not for defense or to intimidate people, they are tools. Man's oldest tool.
I use mine to sharpen pencils, cut food on the go,  open caulking cartridges at work etc... I can honestly say that I use mine everyday, they're just practical.
I might sound clich when I say it's better to have one and not need it than needing one and not having it (Cutting a jammed seat belt comes to mind).
I can see why carrying a gun shocks some of you but a knife? Come on, most of the guys who posted in this thread also have guns, they must have other reasons than defense or intimidation to carry one since the gun can serve that purpose.
Sorry for the long rant but It just seems that some of you are arguing for the sake of it.

edit  : didn't see another thread was opened while I was typing this.
