Description
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!

Unique and sexy!
I'd been admiring the way the knife looks for a few years, but could never quite find the money to buy one. I've been a fan of Gus Cecchini for years, and his customs are astronomically out of my range! I bought the Boker-produced design of his a few years back, and enjoyed it. So, finally, these went on sale, and I knew I had to pick one up before they went extinct. I really do believe these will be one of those "wish I would have gotten one" knives that folks will be paying huge premiums for in the future. The design is unique and beautiful, and the execution is done perfectly by ZT. Mine was perfect, right out of the bag/box. Deployment is way-cool and lightning fast, with a mind-blowingly-neat trick that I'm surprised I have not seen around on other knives. For the size, it is surprisingly light, and despite it's futuristic style, is very comfortable in-hand. With the point be slightly higher than most knives I prefer, it took a few minutes to get used to, in use, but the pointy tip and excellent grind make it a great knife for food prep. Although the style may not be for everyone, especially those who tend more towards traditional, I find the aesthetics very appealing, and it will not fail to get positive comments, wherever you bring it out. If anyone complains about the looks, just let them handle it, and all doubts will fade away.If you're on the fence about picking one of these up, don't wait. This one will disappear soon, and you don't want to be kicking yourself later.

I love this knife!
I am not a full blown knife " collector ". Between Spyderco, Benchmade and Zero Tolerence, I own roughly 48 knives. Not counting a few Cold Steel Recon 1's. In my collection of roughly 16 of each brand, Zero Tolerence is a favorite in my EDC rotation. In my opinion, the knife looks slick and clean. The weight is not light, but it rides right down the middle and feels substantial, bit not paper weight country. The blade is very interesting yet useful and came very sharp. With the upswept tip, it offers the ability to pierce if needed in a self defense situation if the unfortunate situation arises. For me, I have 2 and both flip like the blade is greased in butter. It has one of the easiest flicks in my small collection. Not only does it deploy easy with a nice snap, it is actually fun and unique how well it snaps open. I also like the backside of the handle as it can be used in a closed hand in downward strike for defensive contact if needed without deploying the blade. If I were to find a short coming, it would be the lack of grip on the body. I prefer G10, smooth bodies may look clean, but the lack of grip may be an issue in certain situations. Otherwise I give it 5 stars on all other pertinent qualities.

Pros: Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Handle Material
VERY HARD TO OPEN
IT IS DEFINITELY A GOOD LOOKING BLADE OR I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT IT. I TOOK IT OUT AND ADMIRED IT BUT WHEN I TRIED TO OPEN IT, IT IS VERY STIFF AND HARD ON THE FINGER. I HAVE MANY ZT KNIVES AND THIS IS THE SECOND ONE TO DO THE SAME THING. SO I THOUGHT I'M NOT GIVING UP ON IT. I PUT A LITTLE NANO LUBE AND IT DID NOTHING AT ALL. WHAT DO THEY CALL IT? OH YESQUALITY CONTROL OR DON'T ZT CARE ANY LONGER. I AM GIVING UP ON ZT. NO MORE RUNNING BACK TO THE POST OFFICE FOR ME. SERIOUS IF THEY DON'T CARE I DON'T CARE. THEY GET ONE STAR FROM ME. I AM PI**ED OFF!I AM WRITING A LETTER TO THE COMPANY ALSO.P.S. PLUS I CAN'T GET A DECENT GRIP EITHER..
