Designed by Tim Galyean, the 0223 takes its inspiration from a classic military knife, but ZT's version is a folder, making it easy to EDC and ready for every task you ask it to take on.
The blade is clip point style with heavy jimping along the spine and a cutout to decrease weight. CPM-20CV blade steel offers exceptional hardness and wear-resistance to take and hold a sharp edge, toughness to resist impact, and—with the highest level of chromium of any high-vanadium steel—excellent corrosion resistance. For an extra measure of blade protection, ZT adds black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating, ceramic bead blasted for a non-glare finish.
The titanium handle is also DLC coated and bead blasted to extend the matte look. The 0223 has a sturdy titanium frame lock with a hardened steel lockbar insert for reliable lockup. ZT's KVT ball-bearing system, combined with a highly ergonomic flipper, make the 0223 quick and easy to open, too. The 0223's earth brown G10 handle scales are reminiscent of the original military knife's stacked leather handle. The G10 scales wrap around to the top of the handle and meet in the middle to provide a comfortable and secure grip—as well as helping to keep debris out of your knife.
