ZT 0357The ZT 0357 is a 2020 release from Zero Tolerance. It’s a tough SpeedSafe assisted opener that’s made right here in the USA. It has a good steel, a fast action, and it’s built to be the total opposite of a safe queen.

The 0357 has a 3.25” CPM 20CV drop point with a blade thickness of about 0.12” and a flat grind. It’s available in either a blackwash or working finish. It has a flat grind and a seriously long slicing edge, with a bit of a reinforced tip for outstanding cutting action. Speaking of action, because this is a SpeedSafe Assisted opening flipper, the action is of course simply outstanding.

This linerlock has machined G-10 handle scales on both the front and back for a super slip resistant grip, even under adverse conditions. The handle thickness is about 0.47” and handle length of about 4.4” so you can get a good grip, even if you have large-sized mitts. It has an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip and a generous lanyard loop.
