Zero Tolerance and Kershaw Knives are essentially two sides of the same coin, making sturdy and reliable knives designed by master makers available at just about any price point. ZT makes high-end knives with some of the best knife makers in the world, using its resources as a major manufacturer to allow these smaller masters of their craft to release a product at a much more approachable price point than their custom and one-off blades. Kershaw is the more affordable brand, making knives anywhere from $13–$190, but utilizing that same expertise in design and material choice to bring a top-quality product, just at a lower price point. Here we have the ZT0350, a bulletproof everyday-carry knife made of S30V stainless steel with a G10 scales and a liner lock—this knife will run you $156, last for years and years, and look good throughout the process. Next to that is the Kershaw Mixtape, an easier stocking stuffer at just $44 made with a 3-inch reverse tanto blade made of 8Cr13MoV steel. The companies let you pick your price point, but either way, you know you’re getting a dependable blade.
