Zero Tolerance Knives 0357BW

Zero Tolerance (ZT) Knives offers myriad designs for a multitude of tasks, and its 0357 Black Wash (BW) is one such blade, a liner lock featuring the company’s SpeedSafe assisted-opening action. ZT manufactures its 0357BW in the U.S. out of CPM 20CV steel, a material known for its wear and corrosion resistance and its ability to sustain edge sharpness.

This is a drop-point blade that measures 3.25” long and has been treated with a Black Wash finish. The knife has an overall length of 7.63” and weighs 4.2 ozs. A flipper activates the knife’s SpeedSafe action, and black G10 scales further enhance its low profile. The folding knife is fitted with a reversible pocket clip that allows for deep, tip-up carry.

ZT incorporates a lanyard loop into the butt that serves as a striking surface. As well, ZT includes serrations along the blade’s spine to help improve grip and control. The blade measures 4.4” folded. MSRP is $156.
