KATZ KNIVES ENTERS THE HATCHET MARKET

Katz knives of Canada has been making knives since the late 1970’s. Their line of hunting and folding knives have been excellent. Keith Derkatz, owner of Katz Knives, recently decided to add a line of axes and hatchets to the lineup. Calling them Hudson Bay Dakota Series The sample of his Dakota Series Scout hatchet he sent me is as high quality as any hatchet I’ve seen. The line is made to Katz’s specifications by a company in El Salvador. The heavy duty leather belt sheath is also of high quality. The belt loop is on  a swivel and is always out of the way walking or sitting.

zero   I am pleased to announce that Lee’s Cutlery is now an authorized dealer for Zero Tolerance knives. It is my pleasure to be able to provide  these  high  quality American made combat and tactical folding & fixed blade knives. The Zero Tolerance, also know as ZT, 056 Hinderer design knife has been my EDC knife long before I became a dealer. ZT knives offer great  models, many have been collabrated with custom knife makers such as Rick Hinderer, Ken Onion, Todd Rexford. and Strider Knives

ZT knives are constructed using the best materials and blade steels such as: S30V, S30VN, Elmax, M390, 154CM. They are made using as close to zero tolerance as possible. Fit and finish are excellent. In addition they are proudly made in the U.S.A. Their knives are ideal for camping, hunting, survival & every day carry.

Some of the more popular ZT models: ZT0550, ZT0801, ZT077CF, ZT0350

If you are looking for a quality tough knife you should consider one or more of the Zero Tolerance patterns.

Lee’s Cutlery will continue to add models. Check out the current line of ZT knives at Lee’s Cutlery.
