ITS Tactical

I discovered ITS Tactical about a year ago while looking how to tie a specific knot. I bookmarked it and moved on. Then on another random search they popped up again. I took a closer look and was impressed. The guys that write all of the articles and keep it running are military veterans and members of the special operations community and they write some very useful articles.

I became a Plank Owner as soon as they offered it. The 250 slots filled up pretty fast but was definitely worth it. They now offer a Crew Leader membership. Both offer discounts and other perks like discounts in there online store and discounts at participating partners. ITS does a lot of giveaways as well and you can win some pretty cool gear. The articles are top notch and very informative and useful. Check them out definitely worth the time and you may even learn something new.

Zero Tolerance 0300 in all black

It's been awhile and I picked up quite a few things since my last post. I'm off to Iraq here shortly and will more than likely have some time to add some new posts. On to the Zero Tolerance 0300.

I have been using this knife for about 6 months now and I definitely love it and usually don't go anywhere without it. Weighing in at over 8 ounces this folder is heavy. It features a re-curve blade in S30V steel and Speed-Safe assisted opening. G-10 scales and titanium make up the handles and the pocket clip is 4 way adjustable. The thumb studs are a little too close to the handles to really be useful so the design has included a flipper that you can use in conjunction with the Speed-Safe. The blade is sharp and stays that way for quite awhile.

I had to send this knife in once so far for warranty and sharpening and must say that I am impressed with the warranty service. The whole process took about 3 weeks round trip and was covered under the warranty no questions asked even though I modified the knife slightly, if you noticed the parts that I sanded silver. I also disassembled it once to see what made it work as I like to take everything apart.

This is a solid knife that once you get used to the size you will love it. The price is on the upper end at a suggested retail of 295 but I was able to pick one up for 275 shipped. If you want a solid always ready folder the ZT 0300 will definitely do the job the first time every time.
