Zero Tolerance has been pumping out some extremely cool limited runs lately and the trend continues with this fresh new 0801BRZ. This knife has been given a bronze anodized treatment and an upgraded M390 blade alongside some subtle changes to the handle. ZT added holes on the front scale and a subtle texture to the newly added chamfers on the frame.
The Blade: The blade is a modified spear point with a subtle change to a two tone finish featuring tumbled flats and satin grinds. The 0801 fires well thanks to a finely tuned detent and the KVT bearing system. It comes razor sharp from the factory and will easily shave hair.
The Handle: This knife has a solid titanium handle which gives it a solid feel in the hand. The entire surface has been anodized bronze and a handle update comes in the way of 5 holes on the front scale with textured scallops. A black deep carry clip is attached and can be swapped for left hand users.
About M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
