The 0303 assisted opening flipper from Zero Tolerance knives is a big beefy tank built for hard use. Designed by two of the industry's finest, Mick Strider and Ken Onion, this overbuilt folder was truly meant for tactical operations.
The Blade: The 0303 is tiger striped for a non-reflective covert finish with the piercing tip of a spear point and utility belly of a drop point. There is a slight recurve in the grind toward the handle which is excellent for pulling cuts. Dual thumb studs, blade stops really, and flipper tab deployment get this beast out of its cage in a hurry. It's all thanks to the SpeedSafe Assisted mechanism inside popularly developed by Kershaw Knives, ZT's parent company. Premium CPM-S30V comes super sharp, will hold a good edge and re-sharpen easily in the field. Some jimping and thumb scoop on the spine are welcomed landing spots in the forward grip.
The Handle: Strength and grip were extremely important in this black operatives design, so 3D machining is everywhere. The black G-10 front scale and titanium frame lock side both have the same machining for one purposeful, sexy texture. It feels great with looks that kill. Not too rough, not to light just right texturing for the gloved or non-gloved operative. It's at home in medium to large sized paws. The lockbar has a stainless steel insert for smooth lock function and overtravel prevention. A black liner under the G-10 scale and black G-10 backspacer create one tough package. Curves in all the right places, just a joy to handle.
The 0303 Strider/Onion Folder comes with a black four-position pocket clip to be carried any which way possible. New item by Zero Tolerance Knives.
