Overall Thoughts – Zero Tolerance Coyote Knife
The Zero Tolerance Coyote performed well on all deployments, which is no surprise for a ZT product. This knifes performance is yet another example of the dedication Zero Tolerance wishes to provide to its users.
After wearing and using the knife for a bit I personally think its too big for my reference. I could constantly feel the knife when ascending stairs or bending at the waist. Its larger frame size also telegraphs through your pocket pant material.
While this knife is not for me, I know several people who prefer larger knives. If also would be a great backcountry, hunting or camp knife.
I am happy to recommend the Zero Tolerance Coyote Knife those looking for a durable, practical, and attractive EDC knife. This knife demonstrates a very satisfying blend of Kershaw’s meticulous craftsmanship, premium quality, and everyday functionality.
