Zero Tolerance and custom knifemaker Todd Rexford join forces to produce the Zero Tolerance 0801. It starts with a blade of ELMAX powdered steel. ELMAX enables ZT to produce a blade with a razor edge, excellent edge retention, strength, and toughness. A stonewashed blade finish hides hard-use scratches and makes maintenance easier. The 0801 handle is lightweight and durable titanium with machined grooves for a secure grip—and a great look. The titanium handle features a secure frame lock that, thanks to the titanium, is extremely strong. The blade deploys using the built-in flipper. Just pull back on the flipper and the razor-sharp ELMAX blade rotates out of the handle on ZT’s glass-smooth KVT ball-bearing system. No springs required; just simple, one-handed opening. Easy. The 0801 pocketclip is designed for deep carry and is reversible for left- or right-handed carry. Decorative pivot hardware completes the 0801's handsome look.
