Creating a pocket knife that offers enough utility and ingenuity in a tiny package is no easy task, but that’s exactly what ZT did with the 0022. It’s the brand’s smallest knife ever, but don’t let that stat fool you — it still packs a punch.

The 0022 was designed by Tim Galyean, and features a 1.8-inch blade made of CPM 20CV steel for superior hardness, corrosion resistance and excellent edge retention. The handle is made of a carbon fiber front scale and a stonewashed titanium back. Even though it’s small, the 0022 is designed for hand comfort with deep finger contours to ensure a good grip. ZT’s smooth KVT ball-bearing opening makes it quick and easy to open and close as well. Don’t underestimate the abilities of this small pocket knife.
