ZT0620CF: Model 0620CF
Zero Tolerance Knives

A fantastic offering from two great forces in the US Knife industry. Ernest Emerson has been one of the most popular designers in the world for decades and his first super popular model was a tanto folder- the CQC7. This model is not that, but is a modern take on it. It features a frame lock system instead of the liner lock and a conventional flat ground blade instead of the chisel grind on the original. It is a beauty. Zero Tolerance Knives has grown out of its Kershaw roots to become a top producer of American made knives. Mostly from the best know designers, their offerings have led the resurgence of great tactical US made knives. This model from Zero Tolerance and Emerson is destined to be a real classic for people who need a very tough every day pocketknife as well as collectors around the world.

Zero Tolerance and Emerson Knives put their hard-use heads together to create the new 0620CF.

It features a Böhler M390 powdered steel blade in a modified tanto style. With its high chromium and vanadium content, M390 offers great wear resistance with excellent corrosion resistance. This powdered metallurgy stainless steel takes a razor edge and holds it well. It can also be polished to a mirror finish and is very tough. A combined finish of stonewash and satin provides a handsome look.

Of course, the 0620CF features the patented Emerson "wave opening feature" that enables the knife to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use. A small wave-shaped tab on the top of the blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it comes out of the pocket. This Emerson instant-open feature is a favorite among military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users.

The handle features a carbon fiber front scale with a bead-blasted titanium back. Blade lock up is ensured with a sturdy frame lock. Hardened steel inserts in the lockbar make it extra durable.

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: Handle Material, None
Outstanding knife, but a bit slippery in the hands
I have a bunch of Emerson knives, but the ZT collaboration out does the original in all ways but one: 154cm vs. M390. Liner lock vs. Frame lock. G10 Scales vs. Ti and CF. The only complaint about the knife? The CF scale is too smooth - hard to grab and extract the knife from pants with reinforced pocket lips (pants designed for carrying knives are problematic-a bit ironic, no?). I doubt one would have good grip if the knife were wet. If you want tactical, stay with the original Emerson. For tacti-cool, this knife is beatiful.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Lock Type
Cons: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, None
looks like a beast...I guess...
looks great.... but after cutting thru cardboard 20 times and I cut paper the knife was tearing the paper and it is supposedly a very sharp knife... maybe m390 isnt such a big deal??? my kershaw cqc holds a better edge than this... I guess I really paid for the carbon fiber and titanium and a beefy shaped blade but the blade isnt that great. I dont think it was worth the money.
