The ZT Knives 0850 knife is built with a CPM 20CV stainless-steel blade, which is completed with a two-tone finish that features a stonewash texture combined with a smooth satin finish on the blade's edge. The two chose the steel for its ability to hold a sharp edge, as well as its resistance to corrosion.
Also located on the blade is a thumb stud, which facilitates one-handed opening. The stud and the aluminum backspacer that surrounds it are both completed with a clear-anodized finish. Surrounding the blade, two handles are made from carbon-fiber composite material, which retains the strength and durability qualities of carbon fiber while still allowing for custom color options. The handles on the 0850 are finished in a dark blue color.
The ZT Knives 0850 features a number of weight-reduction qualities, including the company's patented sub-frame lock, which incorporates a lockbar insert that is made using hardened steel. To finish off the look and capabilities of the knife, a pocket clip machined from titanium is bead-blasted and affixed to the handle to allow for tip-up carry. Other final touches on the knife include black-colored hardware that is finished with a corrosion-resistant Teflon finish.
The knife features a 3.75-inch blade, which sits inside of a frame that measures 4.95 inches in the closed position. The overall length of the knife when deployed is 8.7 inches. The blade measures .156-inch thick. Total weight of the knife is 4.3 ounces.
The suggested retail price on the ZT Knives 0850 knife is $400.
