Description: Designed and manufactured to stand up to heavy-duty use, Zero Tolerance Knives are built from premium materials and designed to provide the user with maximum strength, versatility, and unwavering reliability. All Zero Tolerance Knives are built with integrity to professional, hard-use specifications. They're in demand by armed forces personnel, law enforcement officers and other first responders, as well as by discerning knife owners who simply want to be ready for anything the world might throw at them. The knives are called “Zero Tolerance” because they’re designed and built with zero tolerance for anything less than the very best -- in materials, craftsmanship, and made-in-the-USA dependability.
Dmitry Sinkevich and Todd Rexford had always admired each other’s work, so perhaps it was inevitable that they would eventually collaborate. That time came early in 2016. They talked and agreed to work on a project together. Dmitry provided a drawing of an initial concept. Todd worked out the design details and décor. Together they went to work in Todd’s Colorado workshop, sawing, milling, sharpening, and polishing. Eventually, they built exactly two completely astounding knives. And sold them almost instantly. Zero Tolerance decided that two was not enough. We talked with Dmitry and Todd and they agreed to work with us on a production version of their collaboration. The new 0850 is the result.
The blade is CPM 20CV stainless steel with a two-tone, stonewash-and-satin finish. CPM-20CV is a martensitic stainless steel with a high volume of vanadium carbides for exceptionally good wear resistance. CPM-20CV contains the highest amount of chromium of any high vanadium stainless steel currently available. This results in superior corrosion resistance while maintaining high wear resistance.
The 0850 opens manually using a decorative aluminum thumb stud with a clear anodization. The thumb stud is echoed by the unique aluminum backspacer that has been turned and sculpted, then clear anodized. The handles that surround this unusual backspacer are built from a carbon fiber composite material that maintains the benefits of carbon fiber while enabling it to take color, in this case, a deep blue. To keep the weight down on this big folder, ZT added a patented Sub-Frame Lock with hardened steel lockbar insert. (The ZT Sub-Frame Lock is covered under US Patent 69.120.234.) A custom machined titanium clip with bead-blasted finish and black Teflon-coated hardware round out the look of this extraordinary knife.
This is one American-made knife that you won't want to miss.
