Moving to the USA- Modern division in our 2017 Knife Madness tournament, we bring you today’s contest between Zero Tolerance and Emerson. Yesterday’s Buck vs. Great Eastern Cutlery was a quiet one, 15-9 Buck, with neither company getting in on the action.

Remember you can vote twice: Once in the comments on the blog, and once via Facebook.

Zero Tolerance knocked off Benchmade in a Round 1 Clash of the Titans. You can read all of the background on ZT at that link, or enjoy today’s selection of Zero Tolerance videos:


Emerson reached the Sweet 16 with their victory over ESEE. Once again, click the link for the details.


Tomorrow will bring us the “Battle of the Cinderellas”: TOPS vs. Hogue. Both companies aggressively shared their respective contests in the first round, leading TOPS to upset Microtech, and Hogue to knock off heavily favored Spyderco. I have given a heads-up to both Allen Elishewitz of Hogue, and Craig Powell of TOPS, and expect a spirited matchup this time around.

Thanks everyone for making this inaugural contest such a success.

    Hmm… both are a little cutesy. Emerson slightly less, so my vote: Emerson.

    emerson seems all tactical all the time. i need a little whimsy now and then.
    not sure which zt knife is whimsical, but i vote zero t.

  10. Peter Kennedy says:

    I’ve voted already, but I forgot about Gibbs. Another reason I voted the way I did. Ninth rule?
