ZT0909: Model 0909 Folding Knife
Zero Tolerance Knives
 
Zero Tolerance and Les George have teamed up once again to create the ZT0909 tactical folder. Les went back to his roots in designing the 0909, basing it on his popular Talos, which, in turn, was a production version of Les' first custom knife, the FM-1. It might be Les' favorite of all his designs, and there are quite a number to choose from, because of the supreme ergonomics and his classic drop point blade shape.

Curves define the 0909. The rounded index finger contour, the machined scoops at mid-handle, and the deep arc leading to the blade tip all combine to give the 0909 its distinctive look. This heavy-duty powerhouse features premium materials like CPM-S35VN blade steel, G-10 handle scales, and extra-thick liners. The blade is nearly four-inches of S35VN stainless steel that's strong, wear resistant, corrosion resistant, and tough. This high-end steel ensures the user of a sharp, reliable edge that will last a long time.

The handle is built of machined G-10, contoured for sure grip and to reinforce Les' curved design concept. Strong, lightweight, and resistant to temperature changes, this glass-fiber material makes an ideal knife handle. To back the G-10 scales, ZT added extra-thick liners—like the ones found in their classic 0350 series. The beefy liners make the 0909 extremely stable and rigid, as well as providing a secure liner lock that holds the blade safely open during use. Finally, a reversible, deep-carry pocket clip allows the knife to ride comfortably low in the pocket for convenient everyday carry.

Simply the best knife I have ever purchased. one ZT 0909 wasn't enough. I purchased two of them. My wife thinks I am insane.

It could not be any better!
This is an all purpose carry knife when I know I'm going to need a really stout knife. It is my new sailing knife. It will cut through the toughest high tech. halyard or guy line with ease. Which is important when in a nasty spinnaker broach situation. The knife had a quick breaking as far as opening goes. I lubed it with Superlube a PTFE based grease, it took about 40 to 50 flips before it became very fluid. With that said there in zero side movement. Very sharp out of the box. Was able to dry shave with it. Comfortable in the hand and pocket. The thing that I find is that it is hard to believe is that this is a folding knife when it is open. It feels, acts and looks like a sheath knife. Very impressed with the build quality and the design. As far as the blade steel, I think that the steel used is the best that I have ever used, because of the balance of edge retention, ease of sharpening, and rust resistance.
