Zero Tolerance 0055 GTC Gustavo T. Cecchini Flipper Knife 3.75" S35VN Stonewashed Blade, 3D Machined Titanium Handles
ZT0055: Model 0055 Folding Knife
Zero Tolerance Knives
The Zero Tolerance 0055 is unlike anything you’ve ever seen unless you've seen the exciting Airborne folder by Gus T. Cecchini, or GTC, on which it was based!
The result of this ZT-GTC collaboration is the 0055, combining geometric style with ZT's meticulous build quality. The compound grinds of the stonewashed S35VN blade echo the handle and provide top-notch performance. Designed explicitly for cutlery use, this steel is an improvement over S30V, offering better edge stability and providing a long lasting edge.
The 0055's titanium frame lock is stylish with its 3D machined shape. A reversible titanium clip matches the handle finish and a blue-anodized backspacer further enhances this folder's good looks. It also performs! The lock bar features a hardened steel insert, ensuring consistent lockup even after years of use.
At the heart of this knife, however, is Gus' signature SLT hidden flipper. While closed, all that is visible is a tiny black tab at the top of the knife. When you are ready to deploy, this tab swings out halfway until it is ready to deploy the knife. At this point, it operates just like any other flipper and launches the blade with authority. The flipper tab disappears again when opened, ensuring the sleek lines of the 0055 are uninterrupted.
The action is as good as we've come to expect from ZT. Riding on their KVT ball-bearing system, there is no stopping this blade. With the flipper tab providing action like a two-stage rifle trigger, good luck putting this knife down!
