There’s seemingly not a lot of of overlap involving fixed-blade combat knives and just about every-day carry folding knives. These are tools for two distinctive jobs. Even so, regardless of their variations, sharing inspiration involving the two categories can make some fascinating outcomes. The new Zero Tolerance 0223 can be viewed as Exhibit A for this concept — the folder is stated to be inspired by a “classic military knife,” which appears like an oblique reference till you take a appear at the design and style. Its progenitor fairly a lot has to be the venerable Ka-Bar.
The ZT 0223 (a model quantity that is a clear nod to .223 caliber, a lot like the ZT 0022 micro knife is a nod to .22 LR) was created by Tim Galyean to echo that older aesthetic. It blends this with contemporary ZT knifemaking technologies to make it appropriate for modern EDC.
To that finish, the black Teflon pocket clip is left/proper reversible, there’s jimping on the spine, and it has a blade cutout to minimize weight as well. In order to withstand the rigors of day-to-day (as in each day) use, the three.five-inch blade is constructed with top rated-of-the-line CPM 20CV steel. That alloy has the highest level of chromium of any higher-vanadium steel, providing it superior corrosion resistance to other metals. They add a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating to that, along with a ceramic bead blast for a non-glare finish.

The Zero Tolerance 0223 capabilities a titanium frame lock with hardened steel lockbar insert, ZT’s personal KVT ball-bearing program, and what they describe as a “highly ergonomic flipper.” To spend homage to the original knife’s leather deal with, it utilizes earth brown G10 deal with scales (a handful of shades darker than FDE), which also supplies for a safe grip. The Ti deal with has also been DLC coated with a bead blast to match the blade. Other aesthetic, albeit functional, touches consist of a bronze-anodized titanium tube spacer in the deal with and decorative holes drilled in the ricasso of the blade.
As with all ZT knives, the 0223 is created in the USA at the company’s Tualatin, Oregon HQ. MSRP is $300. For far more info, go to ZeroToleranceKnives.com.
