Zero Tolerance Unveils New Knives at SHOT Show

As stated last week, there’s a lot to look forward to in the world of knives. Manufacturers are posting the products for 2013 on their websites and showing off new prototypes at the famous SHOT Show. Now it’s time to parse through the information and give you a rundown of some knives you should look forward to.

If you’re a fan of knives, one thing you should have on your radar is the new Zero Tolerance knives showcased at this year’s SHOT Show. You can get a much better preview from Stuart at Tool Guyd, but here’s a quick look at the ZT models.

Rick Hinderer is a tactical design hero around these parts, so we were really looking forward to this knife. The 0566 doesn’t disappoint. It features a 3.25-inch blade made from Stonewashed Elmax. One side of the handle is textured G10 while the other side is made from stainless steel. It’s an assisted-opening flipper with a stainless steel frame lock, which makes the knife a bit more affordable. The MSRP is set at $180.

This is another similarly sized flipper made from Elmax. What jumps out is the apparent plainness in the aluminum handle, but it retains the workhorse attitude expected from Zero Tolerance. The ZT 0770 is basically the simplified and efficient version of the award-winning (but very expensive) 0777. The MSRP is $180.

Finally, we have yet another stonewashed Elmax steel blade on the ZT 0801, which is designed by knife-maker Todd Rexford. The blade is 3.5 inches and the knife is 4.7 inches when closed. The MSRP on this model is a bit higher at $240.

  1. Can’t wait for the 566 to come out! It’s probably the closest we’ll ever get to an XM-18 3.5″.. even though it’s 3.25″. I don’t really count the 550 because it lacks the flipper, and the frame lock is unusually bulky.

  2. Wow, I love the looks of this knife!

  3. Very nice! I would like to buy one of them! Thanks you very much for informative post.
