Now one of our most popular ZTs comes in BlackWash. BlackWash gives the blade a well worn look, like a battle-tested tool. It also provides an extra measure of protection for the blade, helps hide hard-use scratches, and reduces friction.The 0350BW features the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opening system. Deploy the blade quickly and easily, even in gloves, using the ambidextrous flipper. The ZT 0350BW's blade is S30V stainless steel with non-reflective Tungsten DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) BlackWash coating. S30V steel is extremely durable, corrosion resistant, and wear resistant. This high-performance S30V blade is paired with textured black G-10 scales for a secure grip and excellent mechanical strength even under the roughest conditions. The scales are flat rather than 3D machined like those of the 0300. A locking liner secures the blade during use. The 0350 also includes ZT's quad-mount system for complete versatility. Mount the pocketclip in any of four ways: tip-up, tip-down, on the left side, or the right. There's a pre-drilled lanyard hole for users who prefer to attach a lanyard.
