Here at Adept Knives, we're excited to offer the Zero Tolerance 0235, a high-class, everyday carry knife designed by Jens Ansø. This knife packs a lot of functionality into a lightweight and comfortable package, making it a great choice for those who appreciate quality and performance in their EDC knife.

Here's a closer look at the features of the Zero Tolerance 0235:

  • Spear Point Blade: The 0235 features a spear point blade, a classic and versatile blade shape that excels at piercing and slicing tasks.
  • CPM-20CV Steel: The blade is crafted from CPM-20CV steel, known for its exceptional hardness, wear resistance, and edge retention. This means you can count on the 0235 to stay sharp even after heavy use.
  • Double Detent System: The 0235 incorporates a double detent system for secure carry. This system helps to prevent accidental deployment of the blade, keeping you safe.
  • Half-Open Position: A unique feature of the 0235 is its half-open position. This allows for controlled opening and closing of the blade, adding an extra layer of safety and versatility.
  • Extra-Deep-Carry Clip: For comfortable and discreet everyday carry, the 0235 features an extra-deep-carry clip. This clip allows the knife to sit deeper in your pocket, making it less visible and reducing the risk of snagging on clothing.
  • Stonewashed Finish: The 0235 has a stonewashed finish on the blade. This finish helps to hide use scratches, keeping the knife looking sharp over time.
  • Ultralightweight Carbon Fiber Handle: The handle of the 0235 is constructed from ultralightweight carbon fiber. This material makes the knife incredibly lightweight and comfortable to carry, even for extended periods.

Overall, the Zero Tolerance 0235 is a high-quality, everyday carry knife that offers exceptional performance, safety features, and a comfortable design. With its combination of premium materials, thoughtful design, and exceptional craftsmanship, the 0235 is a great choice for anyone searching for a top-tier EDC knife.
