There are some companies known for creating heavy duty knives for combat situations, and the Zero Tolerance tactical knives are at the top of the field. A part of Kai USA, and a sister company to Kershaw, ZT creates award winning knives that are functional and fearsome.
Features Of A Tactical Folding Knife
Tactical knives tend to have a single, thick blade for improved cutting and durability. The blade may be partially serrated, though this feature is more about preference, as some don’t want the extra care of serrations. The shape of the blade should offer several functions, such as cutting and piercing, and have a strong tip. Drop points, tantos, and spear tips are some of the more popular options.
The knife should have a sturdy blade lock to keep the knife open. A tactical knife will be used for a variety of purposes at different angles and pressures, so you need to ensure there won’t be any accidental closures.
Finally, a tactical knife should have a lightweight, synthetic handle that’s ergonomically shaped. Natural materials can be damaged easier, particularly by water absorption, and are more difficult to clean thoroughly. Prolonged use of a knife can cause hand fatigue if the handle is uncomfortable as well.
Why Choose Zero Tolerance
Zero Tolerance began for the express purpose of making robust knives for those who find themselves in tough field conditions. Law enforcement, military personnel, and first responders have all used the ZT range of knives to good effect.
