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.

I have really gotten into knife collecting since the age of 17 when I graduated boot camp and bought my first Buck 110. Now I am 61 and still building my collection and when I got this knife I was VERY impressed by how this knife fills in as my EDC and goes with me to many parts of the world in my travels. ZT really hit it out of the ball park with this one and hope they can keep this one on the production line for a long time.

Great Knife
Ordered this 10/19 /17 RECEIVED 10/21/17. This is the 4th purchase from KC, never disappointed !! This knife is a " hand Tank " that right I made that up. I always wanted a ZT KNIFE. I was considering a 350 tiger stripe, but went with this model . I f on the fence , just order this one. Does not feel as heavy as the specs would indicate feels very well balanced. Very, very satisfied...... again !!!!!!!!!!!

Outstanding knife!
I've owned my ZT 0909 for a few months now and, despite it's larger/heavier size, it has become my favorite EDC folder. I carry it at work, around the house, on camping trips, etc and and use it for all kinds of cutting tasks. The robust S35VN blade has handled everything I've thrown at it and retains its edge very well. The stronger detent requires a bit more deliberate push on the index/flipper tab, but it comes out with authority and locks in solid. I appreciate the stronger detent knowing that this thing is not going to deploy unless I intend it to (I've had a knife with a weaker detent come partially open when retrieving it from my pocket and I almost cut myself with it...not good). Some may be a little put off by the weight and relative bulk, but I tell you it carries very well despite that. The liner lock is absolutely solid. I've done some hard cutting and there has been absolutely no indication of a failure. Bottom line: A great design by Les George and a quality build by ZT. For the price point, you get a lot of knife and I'm confident it will provide many years of great service. Get one! You won't regret it.
