Knives are extremely sharp tools and should only be used or handled with the utmost care and caution. Here are some tips for using your ZT safely and sanely:
When opening and closing a knife, be sure to have a firm grip on the handle and keep your fingers clear of the blade’s path.
When cutting, make sure to keep the rest of your body clear and maintain a safe distance from other persons.
Always keep your knife clean, maintained, and in working order. Dirt, debris, and worn parts can make a knife function improperly.
Be sure to use your Zero Tolerance knife only for its intended use.
Do not use the blade to pry or twist. To maintain the edge and integrity of the blade, do not use a ZT blade to pry or as a screwdriver.
Any use other than cutting (such as prying or twisting) is considered misuse and abuse—and will void your warranty. Zero Tolerance Knives/Kai USA Ltd. is not responsible for any injuries resulting from misuse or abuse of the product.
Do not use any ZT knife as a throwing knife or a stabbing device. Throwing knives and knives developed for stabbing have a distinctly different design and function. ZT knives are not intended for throwing or stabbing; they are designed for cutting purposes only.
