Zero Tolerance Knives

Zero Tolerance Knives describes this item as follows:

The strongest production knife on the face of the earth.
And that's vital. Because if it comes down to bayonet time, there's no room for compromise. The ZT-9 doesn't. A sturdy S30V stainless steel blade--a full 1/4 inch thick--is paired with Ranger Green G-10 scales. The ZT-9 mounts on the M-16/M-4/AR-15 series of rifles. When mounted, a full six inches of blade extends beyond the muzzle--more than today's standard-issue bayonets. Comes complete with hard Kydex sheath for use as a field knife. A Strider-ZT collaboration.

Great bayonet, pretty good knife...
This bayonet is manufactured from some of the best materials available. I'm not a fan of stainless steel in most cases but the thickness of the blade should lessen or negate most of the issues associated with stainless steel. That said, I still believe that CPM 3V would have been the best choice. And I think the blade should be coated. The design is top notch and the overall construction is stout and well designed. It should be remembered that this is a bayonet, not a knife. While it will certainly fill a knifes roll in a pinch it wouldn't be my "go to" knife in most cases. When I was in the Corps we carried our issued bayonets & a knife, usually the classic Ka-Bar USMC Fighting Knife. Of course we were never issued bayonets of such high quality either. I've read complaints about the weight. I've read that it will "throw off the balance" of the rifle. Of course it will. Any fixed bayonet is going to effect balance. That's why we were trained to never fix the bayonet until absolutely necessary. I can tell you now, if you find yourself in a "fixed bayonet" situation the enemy is so close that balance won't present much of an issue when firing your rifle. Why would you fix bayonet for a 500 yard shot? Adding ANY equipment to your weapon is going to effect balance. Adding a tactical light or laser will change the balance and will require some adjustment to the way you fire the weapon. Even the addition of a scope will effect the balance of your rifle. To sum it up, if I were in the field and had to rely on just one blade then I certainly wouldn't feel ill equipped with this bayonet at my side. It's strong, effective, and low maintenance. As long as I remember that it's primary purpose is as a weapon it should never let me down. The only things I would change, and these are far from being deal breakers, would be to change the blade steel to CPM 3V and give it optional OD, FDE, & desert tan DLC or Cerakote finishes

0.25" S30V...
Probably the highest quality production AR15-M16 bayonet. Razor sharp out of the box. Premium blade steel, top notch materials and workmanship. Highly recommended as a collectible or as a field knife. One thing I don't like is the weight, at over 1 lb for a 7.5" blade is a bit too much and will definitely disrupt the balance of the rifle when mounted as bayonet. Another is the obvious Strider-inspired handle design, unless you have really large hands, it is too thick for a comfortable, secure hold (especially for a heavy blade like this), furthermore the angular design of the G-10 scales make it even less comfortable, not to mention the hole rim on the scales for the oversized bolts is quite sharp and will be hot spot for the hand (ungloved) when using the blade for heavy work. Overall, a good blade at a good price, considering the 0.25" S30V blade and ZT superb workmanship. If you do not want the bayonet option but desire a similar quality blade at similar price, look for the Chris Reeve Green Beret, the handle will be much more comfortable.

Tough as a tank!
This is the most strong knife I held in my hands and at the same time it is very comfortable. It is as good built as Stryder fixed blades and costs less. The handguard is very strong and comfortable better then on Stryders. The choil on blade is comfortable for index finger. The handle is simple but has fine checking and 2 holes and doesn't slip. Because handle has simple shape the knife can be held with any grip. About shealth: it is well made, better then Cold Steel SecureEx (I didn't see brilliant shealth on any production knife). Shelth is not cheap, made of true kydex and fitted to the blade. Knife does not fall off even tip up when I shake it. I think they refused from previos green plastic one because previous had steel plate to retain the knife and it scratched blade. Also the new kydex shealth weights less. Has all possible carry options that I know. Some strange things about weight. It is heavy - 1 lb. 3.4 oz. - twice heavier than other 7 in. blades I have. Don't understand why, maybe S30V is heavier then other steels. But this knife is very fast in the hand. Maybe it is something about balance. My rating is strong 5. For a production knide it s exceptional. This is great all around big knife and it is bayonet at the same time.
