Esnyx Teardrop jack arrived yesterday afternoon. It's a beauty.

Very nice teardrop jack! You don't see those everyday, but that looks like a very useful beauty! How does it walk+talk?


I just got my first knife in a couple of years: a ZT0450 which is an amazing knife and my first ZT (mostly Spyderco with some CRK and a few semi-custom knives). When I was deep into the knives a few years ago, this kind of quality + materials for this price was unheard of. Now it seems to be the new expectation. Next to my Investigator pen which has been EDC for a few years now. It started out blasted, but I brushed it.

Nice! The new 450 was ticking quite a few boxes for me, but I'm holding off for now. Spyderco has a few new models I'm interested in as well. Maybe if I land a new client, I'll splash out.


Walk and talk on the teardrop is fantastic. I've had a lot of very good traditionals - both old and new. This is right up there with the best of the old Hammer Brand/Schrade/NYKCo's of the 20s-50s. Evan really knocked it out of the park with this creation. It has quickly become my preferred daily carry.

That's great! I really like the lines, both open and closed, and the combination opener tool. I don't have a really nice traditional just a bucket-load of SAK's, but I'd love to get a nice single blade slip-joint. You've definitely tickled my fancy, my next knife just might be something from Evan.


Yeah, Spyderco has definitely exploded with a bunch of radically new knife styles after playing it safe for a few years. When I got this, it was a toss-up between the Southard and the 0450, but I prefer all Ti handles and this one came up with an unbeatable price.

I was knifemaker a long time ago, now I make costumes and replica props, especially Star Wars and Harry Potter props, I'm buying a home, maybe I will try to make knives again, because it's quite easy to do, compared to replica props, and has high value for collectors.

Here are some pics of what I made in the past:

I like that last Laguile clone - especially the filework and shaping of the handle, and also really like the clean lines on that tortoiseshell and damascus one. Nice work all around. Do/Did you do your own forging or heat-treating? or buy bar stock to shape, and send out?
