ZT0095BW: Model 0095BW Folding Knife
Zero Tolerance Knives
The Zero Tolerance 0095BW offers a dramatic look and top-of-the-line performance in a design anyone will appreciate.

The 0095BW is built with premium quality materials — from its CPM-S35VN blade steel to its solid titanium handles. S35VN ensures the 0095BW offers a reliable edge without being a bear to resharpen. Added niobium gives this powdered metallurgy steel improved toughness over S30V without loss of wear resistance. The end result is a sharp edge that lasts for a long time. Next, ZT adds a BlackWash finish to the 0095BW's "harpoon-style" blade to give the knife a sleek, unified look and to hide hard-use scratches.

The high-performance blade is paired with a titanium handle with wide, contoured chamfers to provide a secure, comfortable grip. A titanium frame lock with a hardened lockbar insert secures the blade open during use and ensures longevity. ZT's KVT ball-bearing opening system lets you open the 0095BW with speed and efficiency. The 0095BW's pocket clip is reversible for left and right-handed tip-up carry. Finally, a decorative, two-toned pivot adds a finishing touch to the 0095BW, completing the look of this solid handful of precision. This updated version of the 0095BW has texturing around the edges of the handles for increased grip

ZT 0095
The 0095 is, in my opinion, the most beautiful of all ZT's in my collection. I just can't leave it alone. Silky smooth, perfectly balanced and dead on in alignment. I may get another one so I can keep one in pristine shape. Mine is razor sharp S90V, so not sure how I'll sharpen it, but I really don't care. Feels really good in the hand and the coating is luxurious and silky. If you buy this instant classic, you won't regret it.

Another homerun by ZT
I bought this knife on an impulse and at first i had a little buyers remorse and I was planning on selling it since i had also just bought the ZT0804cf I decided to give it a couple weeks before i did and i am so glad i did. I absolutely love this knife now. I keep going back and forth between the 0804cf and the 0095bw as my favorites. they are both such great knives i just cant decide which is best. one mod i did was sand the flats on the handles to give the knife a two tone look and WOW it is so beautiful now. They really should offer it in a two tone finish because it is now the best looking knife i own. I look forward to possible other versions of this knife. I would love to see them offer it in a silver or solid black finish instead of the blackwash. Carbon fiber handles would be awesome as well. But the bottom line is you will be very happy with this knife. the blade steel is great, the shape of the blade with lots of belly make it an awesome slicer. The ball bearing make it incredibly smooth. In my opinion zero tolerance makes the best flippers on the market. I have $500+ midtech knives that aren't as good. Ive never found a better flipper then the ones ZT makes. they flipper and smoothness of the the blade are just as good as $1500+ customs. There just isnt any more room for improvement on their flipper functioning. my only complaint is i wish it came with a deep carry pocket clip, but thats an easy fix.

Cons: None
Zero Tolerance is living up to it's name yet again. You're buying a high quality mass production knife. Perfect construction with everything lining up the way you imagined it. Solid lock with no blade play. The grip is very ergonomic in both forward and reverse grip. The frame lock is very easy to disengage thanks to a cut out on one of the titanium slabs. Pure freaking genius. The blackwash is AMAZING. Every edge is a silver line so it really brings out the geometry of the knife. The flipping action was a bit on the stiff side when I first received the knife but now that I've been breaking it in, it's been getting more and more smooth like it was designed to be. KVT! There is a nice heft to the knife making it feel very solid. Not your lightest knife but not heavy either. One hand action is easy and my hands are small. One thing I really didn't like was that the gimping groove on the very tip of the flipper is very sharp. It's been killing my index finger from breaking it in. Just that one groove. It's weird. The other grooves are smoothed out. Overall this knife is a solid buy. No regrets.
