Sounds odd that the tip just kinda broke like that unexpectedly although this is not the first time i've heard it happen . I have had no negative issues with zdp.I love this steel it is tough and extremely wear resistant and is a little more brittle than s30v but is very practical for every day use . It is a nitrogen steel with very small carbides that stack up very well on a very sharp knife. This allows this steel to maintain a super keen edge far longer than most steels. I have super thin ZDP blades on a couple of kitchen knives and have had no issues with chipping or tip snapping . My guess is that it probably had a small hairline crack in it from heat treating. Send it back to Kershaw and tell them what happened . I'm sure they will take care of you.
