ZT0230: Model 0230 Slipjoint Folding Knife

Zero Tolerance Knives

Minimalist design meets maximum performance in the 0230 from ZT and Danish designer Jens Anso. The 0230 is ZT's first slipjoint knife, so they had to add some extra touches to this non-locking pocketknife based on Jen's custom Monte Carlo design.

The 0230 features a double detent system—to keep the blade safely closed for carrying, plus a second detent at the half-open position to ensure a controlled open and close. The blade is CPM-20CV for exceptional wear resistance and a long-lasting edge. The highest level of chromium of any high-vanadium steel gives it excellent corrosion resistance as well. The sheepsfoot blade shape, with a full-width flat grind, provides excellent slicing capabilities and the downturned tip is ideal for utility work and precise, controlled cuts. You'll also notice that there's no logo on the side of the blade. To maintain the knife's clean look, ZT put their logo on the spine instead.

The handle is carbon fiber, making this an exceptionally light and easy carry. The backspacer is anodized in blue and features an integrated lanyard attachment. The knife's unique features and the clean Anso design make the 0230 a simple, yet extraordinary knife.

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
My addiction to knives aside, this looked like a good candidate to carry in my pocket at times a clipped knife is better left at home. And it fills that role very well - slim, light, sturdy and short. This is a beautifully built and finished knife by ZT (my fourth), and is easy on the eyes with the black CF, blue backspacer, and nicely ground SW blade. The scales are subtly contoured and feel great in hand - exactly long enough for four fingers in my med/lg hands. The 20CV blade came paper-slicing sharp and if it performs like my 0393 the edge should retain very well. Now for my only complaint - this knife has premium materials and modern design, but $180 is a lot of money for a small slipjoint. But if you can handle the price it's a wonderful knife.
