The Zero Tolerance 0609 is a scaled down and simplified version of the Zero Tolerance Factory Custom 0606CF also designed by RJ and Matt Martin. The clean and streamlined design retains the visual appeal with contoured and textured 3D Machined titanium with a handsome DLC'd finish.
This is a Limited Edition Sprint Run with a CPM S35VN Blade, all titanium handle construction and black DLC Coated finish throughout.
The Blade: The DLC Coated blade of the 0609BLK deploys fast and smooth thanks the KVT bearing pivot and index flipper. Inside of the pivot is where all the action is. The oversize See-Through Pivot (STP) designed by RJ Martin is hollow allowing a clear view through the knife. The CPM S35VN blade offers solid performance in durability, edge retention and corrosion resistance with added protection from the DLC Coating. The clip point blade sports a subtle recurve for a sharp look and a high height flat grind for great slicing performance. The blade is very discreet thanks to the non-reflective finish. Jimping that runs down the spine into the handle adds additional traction.
The Handle: The titanium frame lock is equipped with a hardened steel lock face insert for smooth, solid operation. Both titanium scales are black DLC Coated over the eye-catching 3D milling that adds tons of visual appeal to the sleek lines of the 0609. The bottom of the handle has a spot of jimping near the rear and some moderate finger grooves for security and comfort. The 0609 is an open back construction with barrel spacers and carries via a reversible (tip-up) black DLC Coated pocket clip.
CPM S35VN: Designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V, S35VN substitutes niobium for vanadium delivering an increase in toughness of about 15-20% with no appreciable loss of wear resistance. Increased toughness means better resistance to edge chipping. Corrosion resistance is on par with S30V.
