When it comes to innovation and quality knives, Zero Tolerance has built up a great reputation. ZT does their homework by continually working with experienced operators to learn what is needed in the field for today’s ever-changing world. ZT then collaborates with experienced designers to provide the solution for these combat operators; Add in the quality material for construction and you have one hell of a combat tool.
In the case of the Zero Tolerance Combat Folder Knife, ZT collaborated with Strider to bring you this exceptional tool. The ZT0301 looks and feels the way a top of the line combat folder should. It is not only a work of art but it is also something that I want at my side if SHTF. The SpeedSafe assisted opening makes it easy to deploy with just one hand. When the blade is locked out, it is Locked Out! There is no fear of this lock failing no matter what the application might be.
This is a full size folder so for some, it may be a bit much for EDC. For me, it is ideal for most EDC situations when I’m stateside. But when it comes to a higher end knife that is far from economical, you need to make sure that it is something that you will use. If EDC is not your current need, this ZT0301 makes a great addition to your go bag or survival kit. It is a quality blade that will last. You are only limited by your imagination and training when it comes to emergency application for this knife. Be smart, train often with your EDC and make it an extension of your body!
