Zero Tolerance Knife by Kershaw
ZT 0850 Rexford/Sinkevich Folder
When two big designers collaborate, you can expect greatness - and the ZT 0850 by Dmitry Sinkevich and Todd Rexford does not disappoint. Big, bold and yet incredibly light, the ZT 0850 is a master class in balance and flow.
Pick up the 0850 and the first thing you'll notice is the weight, or lack thereof. Despite a 3.75" blade, the knife comes in at just a hair over 4 ounces. That is all thanks to the stunning blue carbon fiber handles and the patented Sub-Frame Lock. Rather than a full titanium back piece, the only Ti piece is the lockbar itself which is anchored to the carbon fiber. This grants all the stability of a standard frame lock without the bulk.
The blade itself sports a dramatic shape and CPM-20CV steel with two-tone stonewash/satin finish. This powdered metallurgy steel offers outstanding edge holding capability and corrosion resistance. The 0850 opens manually using a decorative aluminum thumb stud, machined to echo the cylinder of a revolver. That design element is picked up by the oversized pivot and the impressive milled cylindrical backspacer. A milled titanium pocket clip and Teflon-coated hardware complete the package.
Few knives out there combine high performance, light weight, and gorgeous looks the way the ZT 0850 does. Don't let this one slip through your fingers!
History of the ZT 0850
Dmitry and Todd had always admired each other’s work, so perhaps it was inevitable that they would eventually collaborate. That time came early in 2016. They talked and agreed to work on a project together. Dmitry provided a drawing of an initial concept. Todd worked out the design details and décor. Together, they went to work in Todd’s Colorado workshop, sawing, milling, sharpening, and polishing. Eventually, they built only two completely astounding knives - and sold them almost instantly.
Zero Tolerance decided that two was not enough. ZT talked with Dmitry and Todd and they agreed to work with them on a production version of their collaboration. The 0850 is the result
