From the Manufacturer
ZT and Strider joined forces to design this top-quality combat folder equipped with SpeedSafe manual assisted opening. The ambidextrous thumb stud or blade protrusion enables you to deploy the blade one-handed. In addition to SpeedSafe, the 0301 features a tough S30V stainless-steel blade with Tiger Stripe Tungsten DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating, which enhances hardness and reduces friction drag—as well as providing a non-reflective camo surface. The blade is matched with Ranger Green G-10 scales, 3-D machined to provide a secure grip. A 3/8-inch hex head pivot shaft nut makes field adjustments possible with minimal tools. Includes a quad mounting system for tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed clip carry.

I wanted to mention the one I received is slightly different than the photos on Amazon, as of 12/27/14.
This does not have a lockbar stabilizer(The round disc/washer below the clip in photo). It instead has an insert between the framelock and the blade where the lockup occurs.
This insert prevent the lockbar from overtravel as it hits stops as it comes even with the frame.
I think this is an improvement as the titanium frame does not wear against the hard s30v steel.
I have a couple of photos.
This is probably my second favorite ZT to the 0560, which has the KVT system instead of the speedsafe.
Both are great, I just prefer the very smooth KVT (ball bearing) opening. Both of these knives are large.
Feel great in the hand. The 0301 actually has better lockup than my 0560, which is a tiny amount of up and down play, the 0301 has zero play.
I don't love the pocket clip. I prefer the pocket clip on the 0560 or the 0770CF which are both deep carry. There are some aftermarket options that can add similar clips.
It did come very sharp, but the bevel is not completely symmetrical. My 0560 came with a slightly superior grind.
One thing I do prefer on this to the 0560 series is the jimping on the but of the grip. This is nice with a reverse grip where your thumb would rest there. The blade is centered perfectly as you would expect with a ZT(last photo).
The tiger stripe DLC looks great and I am sure it will last well, as my other ZT's with dlc have held up.
I carry and use my knives, you will not be disappointed with this knife.
I've read some folks complain about it's size, and it's weight. Fortunately for them, there's always the ZT350 offerings, which in their own right, are also superb, substantial, and lethal. Kershaw doesn't make junk, nor do they rest their laurels upon just one product line. All of them are geared towards making your survival a better prospect. Towards that end, they succeed in war and peace. Whatever you need in a sharp blade, Kershaw/Zero Tolerance can provide...
This is a "legacy" piece- one that you hand down to your children, and they, to theirs. I have knives that cost lots more. They're "pretty," as in expensive, and likely never will be used for defense of self, or others. Like a hanger or vault queen, they'll get dusted off, oiled, admired, and put back into storage. Not this baby, no way, no how... This knife was primarily designed for one thing, and it will do it supremely well... It's been said that it's a "beast," a "tank." Well, yeah... You want to defend your life, or someone else's, with a plastic spork?
It's been called "The Leroy Jethro Gibbs Knife" of NCIS fame... Damn straight. That's how I first saw it, on TV. It was love at first sight. No other knife I've ever bought, handled, or seen, has had such an impact on me. Forget, if you can, the fact that it has been showcased on my favorite TV series. Read the reviews of others, who probably haven't watched NCIS. It's a work of art that doesn't gather dust. Show it to others, and you can SEE it's affect upon them. Eyes widen, guts are sucked in, and "magic" is in the air... When you, carefully/watchfully tender it to them for their inspection, it's almost with reverence and awe, that they look at it... Not even a Bowie or otherwise recognizable blade evinces such a response... In their hands, it's as if Excalibur had been presented them by The Lady of the Lake...
I don't know of any other new design that has so quickly stepped into the category of "legend." This is it, and I'm extraordinarily happy to have gotten it. It's my EDC, and it won't remain single for long... If one's good, two's great.
Some things just feel "right," and those G10 scales are masterful. If things goes pear-shaped, you won't lose your grip when the knife gets wet. The 3D texture is positive in nature, and not going to strip skin from palms and fingers, if actions are violent or rapid. Some 1911's have the G10 style panels, ensuring quick, sure, and reliable presentation. So it is with the ZT301. This knife is for professionals- or those who only want the best, as in those who know, that life rarely, gives second chances.
The locking mechanism is the best for any folder I've ever seen... Truly, it seems to become a full tang, even though you know that it isn't. It's a tougher knife than any other folder I've had, and also tougher than many fixed blade knives. Not going out on a limb here- it's my # 1 knife now. Regardless of cost or scarcity, this knife is mine, like my favorite handgun, rifle, or shotgun. It's mine, all mine...
I can't over emphasize the quality of this knife. Talk to your local sporting goods store, gun shop, or cutlery store. Hound 'em until they get one for you to see, hold, and buy...
Do I recommend the Zero Tolerance ZT0301 in Ranger Green Folder? You bet! Without hesitation, or reservation. It's the only one I'll measure all others by, from now on...
