18 new Kershaw models and three new ZT knives enter the 2021 production lineupTUALATIN, OREGON—Kershaw and Zero Tolerance Knives deliver new products heading into 2021. On the premium end, three ZT models are all new — all made in the USA.
The 0990 is a revamped and streamlined version of the modern legend, the 0999. It features a revised design and amazing premium quality at a more affordable price. The 0762 is another handsome piece from ZT. It’s loaded with features, including a Sub-Frame Lock, the ZT Tuned Detent System (TDSTM) opening, and dazzling blue-anodized hardware.
Finally, the popular 0308 is getting a new variant. For the first time ever, ZT is introducing a black-oxide, BlackWashTM version of the classic tiger stripe blade coating. Its overall stealthy look brings a darker aesthetic to the 0308 series.
On the Kershaw side, several innovations are sure to excite fans. The feature-packed Endgame flips manually on KVT ball bearings and takes advantage of D2 tool steel. Bronze PVD coated steel handle overalays help this Kershaw stand out.
Because of the popularity of the original Static cleaver and Highball, Kershaw is introducing larger versions of these models. The Bracket cleaver and Highball XL feature different designs than their predecessors, but still enjoy Kershaw quality at a larger size. A new version of the Taskmaster Saw is also being unveiled.
Project ATOM is perhaps the most interesting and unexpected addition to the Kershaw lineup. The Inverse and Arise fixed blades kick off this new series. Only these blades don’t feature steel at all. Instead, the material is an extremely durable polymer blend, reinforced with glass fibers. They’re lightweight, easy to carry, and include a durable pointed tip for a wide variety of uses.
For another small, convenient option, Kershaw created the Kapsule, the brand’s first manual, out-the-front blade. Simply use the sliding button to easily access the blade, which locks into placewith the button. That’s just a brief overview of Kershaw and ZT’s 2021 lineup.
