ZT0801BW: Model 0801BW
Zero Tolerance Knives

The all-metal, all-the-time look of the Zero Tolerance 0801 is even better in Blackwash.

On the performance end, the blade is S35VN powdered steel. S35VN offers toughness and resistance to edge chipping with no loss of wear resistance. The formula also enables the 0801BW's blade to be sharpened to hair-popping levels.

The blade deploys using the built-in flipper. Just pull back on the flipper and the razor-sharp blade rotates out of the handle on ZT's glass-smooth KVT ball-bearing system. No springs required; just simple, one-handed opening. The 0801BW pocket clip is designed for deep carry and is reversible for left- or right-handers. Decorative pivot hardware completes the 0801BW's handsome look.

The Blackwash finish gives the 0801BW the look of a well-worn favorite tool, while its top materials, Todd Rexford design, and ZT excellence are sure to make it your new favorite.

Please note: this model was first made with ELMAX blade steel; you may still find some of these blades in the marketplace. All current production is shipping with S35VN.

Impressive Flipper
I work in the oil & gas industry, that includes working in extreme elements. This knife is always in my pocket to cut sashcord rope, different types of nylon strap and tape. Thus far it’s been performing great.At first the action was a bit stiff, but after constantly flipping this thing to break it in the action is unearthly now!The clip I’m not a fan of tbh. Wish ZT would’ve stonewashed it, but already it’s going to have a worn look to match the rest of the nice distressed look of the knife.

Solid workhorse
After much research and using different blade shapes, steels, locks, actions, etc. I settled on the 801 as my EDC. This knife had the length and sturdiness I require combined with the qualities of the S35VN steel that makes this a near perfect workhorse for me. One handed operation and USA made were also primary determining factors in choosing this knife. I am not a knife collector, I am a knife user. I work on a farm, in a slaughterhouse, and in an office. I have only had this knife a week and have cut water line, sidewalls from tires, Gatorade bottles to make funnels, lots of paper, and smashed a tempered glass window just to see if I could. Not to mention food prep, and other menial tasks that a guy uses a knife for. This knife is rock solid and could be used as a fixed blade except for prying. I don't pry with a knife, and don't baton anything.The 801 (mine is blackwashed) can be considered a gentleman's folder in my opinion. Although large, the 801 is streamlined, understated, and very capable without being flashy or gimmicky. There when you need it, at the ready when you don't. The action starts stiff but loosens up after a couple hundred flips. Mine has a very early lockup, maybe 10%, but with use I think this will improve as well. Blade shape is excellent for general use, steel holds an edge very well, although the tempered glass blunted the point and flattened the edge for about a 1/8th inch. Not unexpected for this kind of abuse. The entire knife is slick metal without jimping except for on the flipper. Great for normal use as handle shape is very comfortable and keeps the knife where you want it in hand. Grip on this knife can get slippery when wet and I won't even try to use it around blood/other fluids inside livestock. I didn't buy this as a butcher knife anyway. Machining and fit and finish look perfect to this untrained eye. Blade centers perfectly and the grinds are symmetrical. Sharp as a razor out of the box. I am a little concerned about the longevity of the KVT bearings but I have carried a CRKT with the IKBS for a while without issue and have no reason to expect poor performance from the KVT pivot.All in all I expect to be carrying this knife for a very long time.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Material
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, None
The knife is high quality but it is extremely hard to open. If your hands are sweaty, you may not be able to open at all. I should have gotten the Benchmade Osborne 940.
