Zero Tolerance 0900

0900_profile_1020x400I was a bit puzzled at the Kershaw/Zero Tolerance SHOT Show 2015 booth.  When I asked to photograph some new models, the rep was hesitant and then sent me to another marketing person who would supposedly answer any questions.  This next rep offered to copy their own photos on to my thumb drive.  Well, okaaay.

Because there were many new models, I chose to handle a few and forgo taking my own pictures.  A very nice model that had a custom feel was Zero Tolerance’s 0900 by designer Les George.  This short flipper knife has a thick 2.75 inch blade of stonewashed Crucible S35VN stainless steel, working on ZT’s KVT ball-bearing pivot system.

The ZT knife is a frame lock with hardened steel lock bar insert.  0900 has stonewashed titanium handles, which I think have an earthy feel and a practical shape.  The pocket clip is tip up, reversible.  The 0900 weighs 4.3 ounces.

Zero Tolerance Knives are Made in Oregon.  I like the semi-custom craftsmanship of the ZT knives.  Their price point is a bit higher than their Kershaw cousins, but I think ZT’s are worth the extra dollars if you value good mechanics and pride of ownership.
