U.S.A.-( Oregon based Zero Tolerance Knives is at it again, adding to their already expansive catalog of American-made knives. New to the Fall 2019 lineup comes the Tim Galyean-designed ZT 0223, a full-size pocket folder with a definite military influence.

Zero Tolerance 0223 Pocket Folding Knife

Let’s run down the tech specs, as provided by ZT:

  • Made in the USA
  • Manual open, KVT ball-bearing system
  • Frame lock, with steel lockbar insert
  • Reversible clip (left/right, tip-up)
  • Steel: CPM 20CV, DLC coating
  • Handle: Titanium, DLC coating, earth brown G10
  • Blade Length: 3.5 in. (8.9 cm)
  • Blade Thickness: 0.156 in. (0.4 cm)
  • Closed Length: 5 in. (12.8 cm)
  • Overall Length: 8.6 in. (21.8 cm)
  • Weight: 4.7 oz. (134 g)

One word that always stands out when I’m scanning products: “titanium”. I love the stuff, when used in appropriate applications. Here the handle, frame-lock and tube spacer are all Ti, keeping the weight down. Sub-5 ounces on an 8.6″ knife? That’s pretty nice. The cut-out window along the spine, as well as the holes in the ricasso, also combine efforts to keep the mass to a minimum.
