Quotes

Earlier this year a magic gnome in a brown chariot delivered a package containing a ZT Mauler. Upon receiving said package I immediately went to work setting up a ballistic ham in the garage. After making several test cuts I examined the devastation inflicted on the ham. I was pleased with how the saber grind made deep clean lacerations through the meat. The Scandinavian grind left beautiful stab wound in the pork. As I was practicing my butchering technique, I noticed how the Mauler felt in the hand. The handle ergonomics and blade geometry complement each other well both form and function. I found it easy to index the blade while cutting and handling the blade felt smooth and natural. Since then my Mauler has accompanied me on countless occasions. I have used it to finish several coyotes and other pesky critters that roam the desert. I have been impressed with this product and am satisfied with my decision to acquire one of your fine blades. I view knives as a tool and the Mauler is no exception. I have asked a lot of it already and It has been up to any task I have given it. I feel confident that it will serve me well for a good long time. Thank you for a quality product. J.K., Reno, NV
