ZT0609: Model 0609 Folding Knife
Zero Tolerance Knives
The Zero Tolerance 0609 is a smaller, even more carry-ready version of the original Factory Custom 0606CF from ZT, RJ Martin, and Matt Martin. Like the original, it offers a clean, streamlined look yet also has highly detailed handle machining that adds both grip and visual impact. For even more visual "wow," the 3D machined handle is built of light-yet-strong titanium that ZT has anodized in an attractive bronze.

The 3.4" blade is CPM-20CV, which provides enhanced toughness and resistance to edge chipping. It also delivers superior hardness, corrosion resistance, and excellent edge retention. The drop point blade has a two-tone finish: machined satin on the grinds with a stonewashed finish on the flats. The 0609 opens manually with ZT's awesome KVT ball-bearing opening system and the handy flipper so it's always ready when you want it.

Last—but certainly not least—you'll notice the oversized See-Through Pivot (STP). Designed by RJ Martin, this unique, pivot is hollow in the center, letting you "see through" it. The See-Through Pivot adds another intriguing touch to this already-attractive knife.

Use the Kershaw STPTOOL to adjust this unique pivot to your liking.

Love it
This is the second ZT I've ownwed. I've got a 0095BW (love it!) which is heavier than this 0609 by 1.5 oz (or 43 grams) - which doesn't seem like much but makes a massive difference. The 0609 is no where near as fluid to deploy as the 0095, which isn't helped by the fact that the 'flipper' bit your index finger uses to deploy the blade is a) smaller b) rounded, rather than sporting a good edge. I've oiled the action and given it a bit of back and fourth - I'm sure it will loosen up. Despite this stiff deployment - what a GORGEOUS blade. I love this thing - feels great in my (average) sized hands - even though it is a 'smaller' blade. It's certainly smaller than the 0095, so it's a perfect lightweight alternative. On a defensive standpoint - I would not want to be on the other end of this blade, despite the slightly smaller size. This thing is typically (for ZT) exceptionally sharp. An item of beauty. Last note: the "bronze" colour you see on websites is no where near as brown as usually shown. It is dark brown but to the point where it looks like a dark grey in low-light. Your mileage may vary.

I'm not on the ZT bandwagon
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a proponent of most ZT knives. I believe they are highly overrated and just for show. They won't have what it takes in a hard use situation like a Benchmade, KA-BAR, Hogue, Spyderco or others. As just a normal everyday carry, I believe it suits just fine. There is some texture on the titanium handles which is nice; they are also contoured which is comfortable. It closes very smoothly as well. The detent is not as atrocious as most ZT's. For the price, this is a very good deal with a knife that is a moderate use elaborate knife. I wouldn't trust my life to it (or any knife with a framelock for the matter).
