Zero Tolerance 302 Speed Assisted Folder
I picked up the ZT 302 folder not long ago from a local store. The first time i saw these folders I was very impressed by the design, looking very much like Ken Onion and Strider put it together – which is exactly what it is. I picked the Tan over the Olive Drab because I think it looks much better, but that’s subjective. I don’t think anyone can argue that this isn’t one of the nicest production tactical folders out there, however.
If I were to get just one knife to carry, I think this one would be it. Its a bigger folder, but with the ergonomic lines of the handle and the textured grip its not only comfortable in the hand, but has exceptional purchase and retention. The wide blade profile allows the blade to be useful for very large cutting chores and the wide handle profile means better blade control
High-quality S30V steel, with the Strider tiger striping and Ken Onion designed recurve blade and speed assisted opening system. The blade also has a trigger to fire it open. This knife has it all! The blade is not quite as thick as some of Strider’s other offerings such as the AR/GB knives, but is almost as thick as the SnG… just a HAIR thinner.
When I first received my ZT0302 there was a tiny bit of blade play in the closed position only due to the pivot not being tight enough. I tightened it up and now there is no blade play in any positions and the knife still fires crisply. Very nice. Highly recommended!
