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!

This is a Great knife, covers many bases.
Iove this knife. As an owner of a dozen ZT knives, this blade is the most unique. The appearance may not be conventional, but it really grows on you once you hold it. The handles are clean, fits the hand nicely. It IS NOT the gripiest in the hand. Its smooth texture does not feel glued into your hand. However, it does feel at home. As others have said, the flipper can either be like melted butter or have a bit of uncomfortable tension. I sent one back because the flip seemed to have good flips and bad flips. After being replaced, I bought another. The blade is razor sharp. Can be used to trim photos like an exacto knife. Cuts poster board, cardboard easily and precisely. Cuts zip ties cleanly. The blade shape would slice as well as pierce if needed for self defense if that unfortunately became needed. Blade is a bit slimmer than most ZT knives, but not by a lot. Knife is light enough for edc in my opinion. If your knife flios like butter, it's an A+ knife. If it sticks, the reliability suffers and that really sucks. So overall, not counting my first dance, it's a 5 star knife. Looks slick, flips like the wind, sharp as hell, cuts finely and can pierce if needed.

Gus' (GTC) flipper design is fantastic - it simply works and works well. The ZT build quality is always spot on - this really is a solid performer and easily the best looking zt ever!

Revision: The Cecchini 0055 is a great modern flipper. This knife adds an overall appeal to my collection of Zero Tolerence Knives. The machined 3D lines are outstanding and the knife is a pleasure to own. At first I had a bit of difficulty having the blade deploy but after a day it became much easier to deploy the blade.
