Zero Tolerance (ZT) has a reputation for building high-quality, dependable knives. The 0357 lives up to that reputation, offering a blend of functionality, durability, and affordability that makes it a great choice for everyday carry (EDC) or a tactical folder.

Built to Last

The 0357 features a 3.25-inch drop point blade made from CPM-20CV steel. This steel is known for its exceptional hardness, wear resistance, and edge retention. You won't have to worry about constantly sharpening this blade, and it can tackle tough cutting tasks with ease. The working finish on the blade helps to hide scratches that inevitably accumulate with use.

Solid Grip

The handle is constructed from black G-10, a composite material that's lightweight, grippy, and virtually indestructible. The G-10 scales are machined for a comfortable and secure grip, even in wet or oily conditions.

Speedy Deployment

The 0357 utilizes ZT's SpeedSafe assisted opening system. A flipper tab on the blade allows for quick and easy one-handed deployment. The action is smooth and reliable, ensuring the blade is ready when you need it. A liner lock keeps the blade securely in place when open.

Carries Discreetly

A reversible deep-carry pocket clip allows for tip-up carry on either side of your pocket. This keeps the knife discreetly out of sight while still being readily accessible.

Overall Impression

The Zero Tolerance 0357 isn't flashy, but it gets the job done. It's a well-built, functional knife that can handle a variety of cutting tasks. The assisted opening is a nice touch, and the CPM-20CV steel ensures the blade will stay sharp for a long time. If you're looking for a no-nonsense EDC knife that won't break the bank, the 0357 is a great option.

Here are some additional points to consider:

  • The 3.25-inch blade length may not be legal for carry in all areas. Always check your local knife laws before carrying any folding knife.
  • While the assisted opening is convenient, some users may prefer a traditional non-assisted opening.

Overall, the Zero Tolerance 0357 is a solid choice for anyone looking for a dependable, everyday carry knife.
