Zero Tolerance 0350 with ZDP-189 Super Steel
Just out from Zero Tolerance Knives, it’s the fantastic ZT00350, now produced in premium ZDP-189 steel! This Ken Onion-designed knife features the ambidextrous SpeedSafe® opening mechanism, stainless steel liners, a quad-carry pocket clip and the overall great styling and engineering we expect from ZT Knives. We love the ZDP-189 super stainless steel. Personally, I have carried this steel for years and find that it holds an edge better than anything I have every used and is also easy to sharpen. This knife is a real winner and they are released in a limited run. Once they are gone, they are gone. This is the plain edge version and we will see the combo edge with ZDP in the near future.

Here is more info from Zero Tolerance Knives:
The Zero Tolerance 0350 is slightly smaller and slightly lighter than the 0300—10% to be precise—but just as aggressive. The 0350 is fully equipped with SpeedSafe® for one-handed assisted opening. Even in combat gloves, you can easily deploy the blade using the large, ambidextrous thumb stud or blade protrusion. The blade is ZDP-189 stainless steel with Tungsten DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating. ZDP-189 steel is one of the knife industry’s hottest, hardest and highest performing knife steels today. 3% of its structure is pure carbon which makes the steel harder and in turn furthers its edge retention capacity, while the black Tungsten DLC is non-reflective, enhances hardness, and reduces friction drag. Textured, matte-black G-10 scales provide a secure grip. Includes a quad mounting system for tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed clip carry.
