Zero Tolerance 0300BW Blackwash Review

I wanted to share some pics of my new EDC blade – the Zero Tolerance 0300BW.  Many of you are probably already familiar with this knife and know the tech specs.  Closed length of 5.1 inches.  Overall weight is 8.1 ounces.  Assisted opener with a wide, S30v tungsten DLC Black Wash finished blade.  Four way reversible pocket clip.

So, in summary… a black pocket beast that is heavy as hell with a blade that is probably on the large side for Every Day Carry.  Do I care?  Absolutely not.

 

 

I love this knife.  This is my first ZT 0300 (replacing a 0350) and for me it’s the most ergonomically comfortable knife I’ve owned to-date and provides a very firm grip.  Fit and finish is outstanding.  Pardon the cliche but it locks up like a bank vault.  Almost fixed blade like.  Great machined 3D titanium and G-10 scales.  The black wash gives it an antiqued look that’s very unique.  Sharp right out of the box.  The large, thick slab of a blade comes out with an authoritative “thwack”.  I’ll probably wear it out just playing with it.

 

 

This comes off sounding a little fanboy and for that I apologize.  But the 0300 is just awesome all the way around.  I paid roughly $200 for it and while that’s a lot of money, I feel like it’s worth every penny.  Can’t recommend it enough.

    Looks like a beast!

    Love the blackwash too…

    Any thoughts on sharpening this blade shape?

      It depends on your sharpening prowess. For someone with skills in that area, I think the recurve with practice would be manageable. ZT also makes a combo edge (partially serrated) design and for me that would be a total no-go. Personally, I’ve still not mastered the art and will probably make use of the Zero Tolerance free sharpening service for anything more than just a touch up. 😉

      And BTW… yes, I know it’s horrible that I’m not better at sharpening! I really need to develop my skills in that area this year. Maybe it will be an excuse for another how-to video. LOL.
