The Zero Tolerance 0850 is an exciting Dmitry Sinkevich/Todd Rexfordcollaboration based on a spectacular custom piece the two knifemakersbuilt together last year.
Dmitry and Todd had always admired each other’s work, so perhaps it wasinevitable that they would eventually collaborate. That time came earlyin 2016. They talked and agreed to work on a project together. Dmitryprovided a drawing of an initial concept. Todd worked out the designdetails and décor. Together they went to work in Todd’s Coloradoworkshop, sawing, milling, sharpening, and polishing. Eventually, theybuilt exactly two completely astounding knives. And sold them almostinstantly.
Zero Tolerance decided that two was not enough. We talked with Dmitryand Todd and they agreed to work with us on a production version oftheir collaboration. The new 0850 is the result.
The blade is CPM 20CV stainless steel with a two-tone,stonewash-and-satin finish. This powdered metallurgy steel offersoutstanding edge holding capability and corrosion resistance. The 0850opens manually using a decorative aluminum thumb stud with a clearanodize. The thumb stud is echoed by the unique aluminum backspacer thathas been turned and sculpted, then clear anodized. The handles thatsurround this unusual backspacer are built from a carbon fiber compositematerial that maintains the benefits of carbon fiber while enabling itto take color, in this case, a deep blue.
To keep the weight down on this big folder, ZT added our patentedSub-Frame Lock with hardened steel lockbar insert. (The ZT Sub-FrameLock is covered under US Patent 69.120.234.) A custom machined titaniumclip with bead-blasted finish and black Teflon®-coated hardware roundout the look of this extraordinary knife.
