I'm sure I don't put my knives through the abuse that some of you do, I'm just a cake eating civilian. That said, I'll definitely put in a vote for ZT. I've got a 0350 folder that has served me well for two or three years. I've also got a 0121 fixed blade (I believe it was a Strider collaboration) that is built like a damn tank. I couldn't count how many deer its cleaned and I've never had to sharpen it. It could probably double as a pry bar.
If you don't like ZT, my next choices would be Benchmade or Emerson. There's always customs, but I can't justify that expense for my uses.
