If any ZT is our flagship knife, it’s the 0300. It has all the features Zero Tolerance is known for: extremely solid construction, premium materials, and sophisticated ergonomics. This top-quality knife is equipped with the patented SpeedSafe assisted opening system.
SpeedSafe makes it easy for users to deploy the blade one-handed—using the ambidextrous thumbstud or flipper blade protrusion. The flipper blade protrusion is easy to access and with a blade this massive, SpeedSafe supplies an assist you’ll appreciate. In addition to SpeedSafe, the 0300 features a tough S30V stainless steel blade with matte black Tungsten DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. The S30V blade steel is designed to provide the perfect combination of durability, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. The Tungsten DLC not only provides a non-reflective camouflaged surface, but also enhances blade hardness and reduces friction drag.
The 0300’s handle is 3-D machined G-10 in the front with a matching 3D machined titanium back. The titanium frame lock provides a secure blade lock up during use. With or without gloves, this enables a very firm grip. The solid grip enables a quick transition from forward to reverse grip time and again. Heavy jimping on the thumb ramp further enhances the grip. A 3/8-inch hex head pivot shaft nut makes field adjustments possible with minimal tools. ZT's Quad-mount pocketclip enables for tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed carry. The 0300 is also available with a versatile, partially serrated edge as the 0300ST.
