ZT0350SW: Model 0350SW Folder
Zero Tolerance Knives
 
IS THIS THE PERFECT ZT EDC?

Slightly smaller. Slightly lighter. Just as aggressive. The 0350 is 10% smaller and weighs almost three ounces less than our flagship 0300. Yet it packs a lot of features into a size that some users prefer, especially for every day carry.

Like its larger counterpart, the 0350 features the patented SpeedSafe assisted opening system. Deploy the blade quickly and easily, even in gloves, using the ambidextrous thumbstud or flipper blade protrusion. The ZT 0350's blade is S30V stainless steel with a heavy stonewashed finish. S30V steel is extremely durable, corrosion resistant, and wear resistant. In addition to providing a non-reflective surface, the black Tungsten DLC coating offers additional blade hardness and reduces friction.

This high-performance S30V blade is paired with textured black G-10 scales for a secure grip and excellent mechanical strength even under the roughest conditions. The scales are flat rather than 3D machined like those of the 0300. A locking liner secures the blade during use. The 0350 also includes ZT’s Quad-mount system for complete versatility. Mount the pocketclip in any of four ways: tip-up, tip-down, on the left side, or the right. There’s a pre-drilled lanyard hole for users who prefer to attach a lanyard.

Tank!!?
This knife is a absolute tank. A little heavy but really instills confidence that it can get the job done. Top quality.

Very good knife
Great knife, with good heft. Feels good in the hand. Solid build quality. The lock both feels and sounds solid, with a nice, crisp snap upon opening. The clip is much like other folding knives I've had: standard. Not high enough fo hide the knife in the pocket lining, but just as a normal clip would be expected to be. Feels solid enough. The blade is solid as well, an with the stonewashed finish it looks great. The out-of-the-box sharpness is overall good. Not razor sharp, but far from dull. Overall the quality feel of the knife is great. A solid build, with a great look to the blade. A solid deal. Quite a lot of bang for your buck.

Who says the Walker Linerlock isn't for hard use?
Ok, so popular opinion of this knife is that it is one of the best. I chose this knife based on my needs and its S30v recurve blade rather than listen to the laudings of the masses. Its a heavy EDC blade (which some may not like, hence the inclusion in the 'cons' list) but I have never given a thought to weight in a good folder. I work in a boiler room, and need a good, stout blade for cutting firehose, cardboard, scraping out gauge glass washers, cutting valve packing, and various other tasks. These tasks require good steel that holds an edge and is very corrosion resistant. The 0350 has these qualities and more. I chose this knife based on its qualities and the fact that I really love ZT. That "Made in America" stamp means a lot to me, even if the price point is a bit higher. My previous work knife was an original steel-lined CS Lawman, heavily modified (coating removed, upgraded "fatboy" thumbstuds, and a wave-like pocket opener added). While it is a good blade and did what I needed, it rusted quickly and required a lot of maintenance because of the environment it was being used in. Switching to a linerlock did cause some anxiety, as the Triad lock of the CS folder is top notch (Watch their video if you don't believe me), but after unboxing the 0350, I could see why this is such a popular blade for true Hard Use. The issues I usually have with Liner and Frame locks is how the lock bar can be compressed into the handle when the blade is held in a 'death grip'. when it gets compressed, it grinds against the tang of the blade and will prematurely wear the lock, causing play in the blade way before there should be. This makes choosing a liner lock for hard (or even daily) use a poor choice. Under repeated daily use, a typical liner lock will fail much sooner than it should. Thickness and materials play a huge part in this equation. Liner locks should be stainless steel, at least 1/16" thick (such as the 2mm on the 0350). Frame locks should be carbidized titanium, at least 1/8" thick. These thicknesses allow for a very strong lockup and a lock that can take a bit of a pounding. On frame locks, we've been seeing the Hinderer "lockbar stabilizer" which eliminates this problem. Thankfully, the Ken Onion designed, speed-safe equipped 0350 also has such a mechanism. There is a small protrusion that hangs down from the tang of the blade that holds the lockbar in place when the blade is opened, halting all movement towards the spine of the knife. This equates to solid lockup with no movement in any direction, and the oversize stainless liners (Thankfully not Titanium!) will take a very long time to wear into uselessness. Overall, this knife is a very comfortable, perfectly sized (3.25" blade) EDC blade for people who work or play in environments that require a blade that can hold up to a bit of hard use, and can take a harsh environment without corroding quickly. This particular version without the coating is more for those of us that are likely to use the folder in the presence of other people. It is not a menacing blade, even though its large. Great folder from a great company.
