Harry’s Army Surplus just received a great new knife. This blade is GORGEOUS! The Zero Tolerance Scavenger Knife (model 0400) is from the Kai family of high end blades (Kai USA being the parent company to Kershaw Knives as well) and is geared towards the “line of duty” fields, though as an everyday carry (EDC) it would be a great choice. The shape itself is designed by Ken Onion, whom is very well known in the world of knife crafting, and sports a SpeedSafe® manual assisted opening modified tanto style blade cast in high end S30V steel. The scales (handle) on the front have Trac-Tec grip tape inserts for a secure hold, while the back scales do not, allowing for easier “in-and-out” of the pocket when clipped. The black finish is not just a pretty paint job either! That is Tungsten DLC (Diamond Like Coating) which is going to protect that blade from just about anything the elements can throw at it!
The blade composition and Tungsten DLC make the Kershaw Zero Tolerance Knife 0400 Scavenger a PERFECT choice for anyone in police, military, emt/paramedic, fire fighting line of work. The S30V steel, developed by the crucible Materials Corporation, boasts an even distribution of vanadium carbides which makes it harder and have a superior cutting edge. This high end steel is also very resistant to corrosion, rust, and wear! Top that with the DLC coating and you have yourself a blade you can use and not have to worry if its going to chip, scratch, dull, or rust as easily in battle/rescue/work.
Supply on the new Zero Tolerance is very limited so if you’re looking to buy this Zero tolerance knife in-store or online, please call to order or drop in before they’re gone
Looking for more information? Here’s what the manufacturer has to say about it:
This Tanto-style military folding knife from ZT features SpeedSafe® manual assisted opening for one-handed blade deployment. Just push on the ambidextrous thumb stud or pull back on the blade protrusion. The modified Tanto blade in S30V stainless steel provides extreme strength and is coated with Tungsten DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) for a non-reflective matte-black finish. The 0400 is one of the thinner folding knives in the ZT line, which makes it excellent for compact carry. While the front scale features friction-tape inserts for a secure grip, the back scale does not have the tape, enabling an easier draw and storage in the pocket. A 5/16-inch pivot shaft adjustment enables tighter or looser blade deployment. Includes a dual mounting system for tip-up or tip-down, right-handed clip carry.
