ZT 0235ZT and designer Jens Anso follow up the wildly popular ZT 0230 with the ZT 0235. We expect the demand for this knife is going to be just as fierce. It has all the same style and action you loved about the original.

Much like the 0230, the ZT 0235 is a non-locking slipjoint with a double détente system. Zero Tolerance tell us the “two steel detent balls, one on each side of the blade for safe carrying” ensures a controlled open and close and closely mimics the half stops that you’d find on a traditional slipjoint. It has a 2.6” CPM 20CV spear point blade with a stonewash finish that opens with a nail nick.

This knife is, of course, a practically perfect daily carry because it’s lightweight and discreet. The carbon fiber handles have a blue anodized aluminum backspacer with an integrated lanyard hole. It comes with an ambidextrous, extra-deep carry pocket clip. It’s 3.8” closed and weighs a mere 1.8 ounces.
