Minimalist design meets maximum performance in the 0230 from ZT and Danish designer Jens Anso. The 0230 is ZT’s first slipjoint knife, so they had to add some extra touches to this non-locking pocketknife based on Jen’s custom Monte Carlo design.
The 0230 features a double detent system—to keep the blade safely closed for carrying, plus a second detent at the half-open position to ensure a controlled open and close. The blade is CPM-20CV for exceptional wear resistance and a long-lasting edge. The highest level of chromium of any high-vanadium steel gives it excellent corrosion resistance as well. The sheepsfoot blade shape, with a full-width flat grind, provides excellent slicing capabilities and the downturned tip is ideal for utility work and precise, controlled cuts. You’ll also notice that there’s no logo on the side of the blade. To maintain the knife’s clean look, ZT put their logo on the spine instead.
The handle is carbon fiber, making this an exceptionally light and easy carry. The backspacer is anodized in blue and features an integrated lanyard attachment. The knife’s unique features and the clean Anso design make the 0230 a simple, yet extraordinary knife.
