There are few things as exciting to us in the everyday carry world as getting to see our favorite knife brands collaborate with stellar custom makers and designers. But it’s even more exciting when we get to see two of those designers work together on a design that gets backed and brought to market via a stellar brand. The latter is the case with Zero Tolerance’s new 0850 folding knife.
Dating back as far as 2015, this knife began as an unlikely custom collaboration project between two of the knife world’s most lauded designers, Dmitry Sinkevich and Todd Rexford. Based on a 2-example custom piece the pair built together last year, this USA-made folding knife features a 3.75″ CPM 20CV stonewashed and satin finished blade, carbon fiber scales, and ZT’s patented sub-frame lock and hardened lock bar. It also perfectly meshes the two designer’s styles – with Sinkevich’s touch clear in the overall form and Rexford’s signature firearm-inspired detailing. When it hits the market, this excellent EDC knife will retail for $400. [Purchase]
