  1. The knife features SpeedSafe opening system. 
  2. The thumb stud is ambidextrous meaning you can easily open the knife with either hand. 
  3. On top of the SpeedSafe feature, the Zero Tolerance 0301 features a super strong bladed constructed of S30V stainless-steel, finished with "Tiger Stripe" tungsten DLC. 
  4. The "Tiger Stripe" gives the Zero Tolerance 0301 an enhanced hardness as well as a reduction in friction drag. 
  5. Perhaps the best feature of the "Tiger Stripe" is the non-reflective camo pattern it give the blade. 
  6. The blade is paired with a Ranger Green grip that is designed to give a secure grip in all conditions. The Zero Tolerance 0301 features a 3/8 in. hex pivot shaft nut. The benefit of this is that it makes adjustments in the field extremely easy.
  7.  It also limits the tool requirements need to make the adjustments.
  8.  Overall, the blade length is 3/34 inches (9.5 cm), when closed, the Zero Tolerance 0301 measures 5 1/4 inches (13.3cm). 
  9. Total Weight is 8.6 oz. 
  10. The knife also features a removable pocket clip that can be placed on the right or left side. 
  11. The Zero Tolerance 0301 is manufactured in the United States.

  • The Zero Tolerance 0301 is an incredible display of craftsmanship. 
  • The ZT 0301 pays great attention to detail. From the "tiger Stripe" coating to the SpeedSafe opening feature, you will be hard pressed to find a better knife on the market. 
  • The blade maintains a sharp edge and takes little effort to re-sharpen.


  • Some negatives regarding this knife are the price first and foremost. 
  • However, you truly get what you pay for as this knife is off top quality. 
  • Weight can be another issue for some as this knife is quite hefty in comparison to other folding knifes.

Overall, you would be hard pressed to find another knife on the market with as much style and performance as the Zero Tolerance 0301. This is a great knife for those who appreciate quality and craftsmanship.
