ZT 0350With six different models in the ZT 0350 series, it’s easy to fulfill Gibb’s Rule 9: Never go anywhere without a knife.  The ZT 0350 series is all about versatility. Multiple blade choices and a fully adjustable pocket clip means you can find a knife that fits your aesthetic and carry it however you want. Additionally, if it’s one of those days where you know you’re going have your hands full, the SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism makes for ridiculously easy deployment with either the flipper or the ambidextrous thumb stud.  The 0350 series is all about choices, or as Zero Tolerance says, “It’s your 0350, your way, your choice.”

All the knives in this series have an 3.25” S30V drop point. Each knife is available in one of four different blade finishes including a non-coated variety. Two models have the option of a plain or a partially serrated edge.

Let’s start with the absolute most distinctive of the series, the 0350TS and the 0350TSST.  ZT says, “Same durable build. Same precision quality. But the Zero Tolerance 0350TS has something the others don’t—a bold, tiger-stripe blade.”  In addition to its distinctive look, the coating on the ZT 3050TS increases corrosion resistance, reduces drag, provides a non-reflective surface, and adds a touch of camouflage to your EDC without sacrificing one bit of the quality for which Zero Tolerance is known.  The 0350TS has a plain edge, and the 0350TSST has a partially serrated edge.

With the 0350SW Zero Tolerance fulfilled the wishes of the masses by building the 0350SW with only a stonewashed finish for those who prefer to let their steel look like steel. It has a fantastic, clean look with the same features as all the other 0350s.  This model only comes with a plain edge.

The 0350BW has a rugged, worn-in look with its blackwash finish. ZT tells us, “To make a blackwashed knife, knife components are Tungsten DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) coated, then tumbled to produce the distinctive ZT blackwash finish.”  The 0350BW is only available in the plain edge format.

Both the 0350 and the 0350ST have a black Tungstun DLC coating. The DLC coating increases the blade’s hardness, reduces friction, and makes the blade non-reflective. The 0350 has a plain edge, and the 0350ST has a partially serrated edge.

Each knife in the series has flat, textured G-10 handles with tons of jimping, ensuring maximum slip resistance. Additionally, each knife has ZT’s four-position pocket clip and a lanyard hole making it fully adjustable to the way you want to carry your ZT 0350.
