Zero Tolerance is known in the world of everyday carry for their exceptional, precision-manufactured folding blades. And that’s a heck of a reputation to uphold. So, when it came time to create their very first slipjoint folder, they turned to Danish master designer Jens Anso — resulting in the jaw-dropping beauty that is the 0230.

Shockingly, Zero Tolerance had never made a knife of this style, so they knew they had to pull out all the stops and, it’s immediately apparent, that no expense has been spared. For starters, this knife is equipped with a CPM 20CV sheepsfoot blade — perfect for hard-use tasks and detail work alike — which is mated to beautiful carbon fiber handle scales for lightness and durability. But take a deeper dive and you’ll see that they included a double detent system to ensure that this non-locking blade is extra safe when stowed in your pocket. ZT even refrained from branding it in a traditional way — opting instead to put their name on the blade’s spine to retain its overall cleanliness. This masterwork cutting tool can be yours right now for $180.
