Zero Tolerance and Les George have teamed up once again to create the new 0909. Les went back to his roots in designing the 0909, basing it on his popular Talos, which, in turn, was a production version of Les’ first custom knife, the FM-1.
Curves define the 0909. The rounded index finger contour, the machined scoops at mid-handle, and the deep arc leading to the blade tip all combine to give the 0909 its distinctive look. This heavy-duty powerhouse features premium materials like S35VN blade steel, G-10 handle scales, and extra-thick liners. The blade is nearly four-inches of S35VN stainless steel that’s strong, wear resistant, corrosion resistant, and tough. This high-end steel ensures the user of a sharp, reliable edge that will last a long time.
The handle is built of machined G-10, contoured for sure grip and to reinforce Les’ curved design concept. Strong, lightweight, and resistant to temperature changes, this glass-fiber material makes an ideal knife handle. To back the G-10 scales, ZT added extra-thick liners—like the ones found in our classic 0350 series. The beefy liners make the 0909 extremely stable and rigid, as well as providing a secure liner lock that holds the blade safely open during use. Finally, a reversible, deep-carry pocketclip allows the knife to ride comfortably low in the pocket for convenient everyday carry.
