With the cancellation of the SHOT Show this year, knife companies are dropping their new lines virtually. This week Zero Tolerance dropped three new models for 2021 including a new version of the 0308, the 0762, and the 0990. Here’s a brief overview of each of them. We’ll dig deeper down the road.

ZT 0308BLKTSZT 0308 Black Tiger Stripe

“For the first time ever, ZT is using a black-oxide BlackWash finish with its classic tiger stripe pattern. The 0308BLKTS offers a beefy 3.7-inch tiger stripe blade with premium CPM 20CV blade steel. The handle features black G10 on the front scale with a titanium back. Both the front and back are heavily 3D machined for an ultra-secure grip. The .25-inch solid pivot features a custom nut that enables it to be adjusted in the field with a half-inch wrench. The pocket clip hole pattern is compatible with many after-market clips.”

Features: 3.75″ CPM-20CV Harpoon Style Blade with a black-oxide BlackWash Tiger Stripe Finish. Manual flipper with KVT Ball Bearing System and an adjustable pivot. Framelock with black G10 front handle and  titanium back handle with a black DLC coating (both 3D machined). Ambidextrous tip-up pocket clip and lanyard hole. Closes down to 5.2″ and opens to 8.9″ overall. Weighs 6.9oz. Made in the USA.

ZT 0762ZT 0762

“Packed with innovation, the 0762 delivers a top-of-the-line ZT experience. Its modified sheepsfoot blade and carbon fiber handle scales offer the ultimate medium-size ZT carry. Open the 0762 reliably with the ZT Tuned Detent System (TDS™), allowing the blade to deploy even with pressure on the lockbar. The ZT Sub-Frame Lock secures the blade into place without sacrificing the lightweight benefit of carbon fiber. A two-tone CPM 20CV blade is pleasing to the eye and just as useful during work tasks. The 0762 stands out with an array of aesthetic details, including matching blue-anodized hardware and sleek handle windows. All of these premium features create a ZT showpiece slicer.”

Features: 3.4″ CPM-20CV modified sheepsfoot blade with satin grinds and stonewashed flats. Manual flipper with the KVT Ball Bearing System as well as TDS™. Titanium sub-frame lock with carbon fiber handles. 4.75″ closed. 8.1″ overall. Weighs just 2.9oz. Made in the USA.

ZT 0990ZT 0990

“Based on the award-winning 0999, the 0990 streamlines this legendary design. Despite its skeletonized structure, this ZT is reliably strong thanks to its steel construction. Other elements pay homage to the original 0999, including an exposed “floating bridge” near the top of the handle, carbon fiber scales with a front steel overlay, and cutout windows in the blade and near the pivot. Instead of a ZT logo on the blade itself, the words “Zero Tolerance” are subtly debossed into the backspacer. The CPM 20CV blade offers excellent edge retention and opens reliably with KVT ball bearings. Once unobtainable for most, the 0990 offers the best way to bring the legend home.”

Features: 3.25″ CPM-20CV harpoon style blade with stonewashed finish. Manual flipper with the KVT Ball Bearing System, as well as a thumb hole. Carbon Fiber handles with bead-blasted steel overlay. Inset liner lock. 4.4″ closed. 7.6″ overall. Weighs 2.9oz. Made in the USA.
