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 of GTC Knives. And while the Airborne was where they started, the ZT-GTC collaboration took off from there.

The result is the amazingly awesome 0055, which offers dramatic aerodynamic lines on both blade and handle and ZT’s meticulous precision build. The dynamic blade is S35VN stainless steel, a formula that provides enhanced toughness and resistance to edge chipping with no loss of wear resistance. It is rich in niobium, vanadium, and chromium carbides and ensures the 0055 has a sharp, long-lasting edge.

The handles are 3D machined titanium with a titanium frame lock and hardened steel lockbar insert. The custom backspacer is anodized aluminum in bright sky blue.

And yes, the 0055 features Gus' SLT hidden flipper tab. While the knife is closed, the flipper is concealed. When you’re ready to open it, pull back on the SLT. A spring flips the tab up into position. Then just pull back on the tab and the 0055 opens just like any other ZT. The hidden SLT ensures there’s no flipper tab poking up along the spine or beneath the handle to interrupt the sleek lines of the 0055. The 0055’s blade glides out of the handle on ZT’s KVT ball-bearing system, ready for use. The action is similar to a two-stage rifle trigger and is completely addicting.

To complete this exemplary knife, ZT added a left/right reversible bent titanium pocket clip.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: Overall Quality, None
Unfortunately, I received a defective knife
The GTC ZT055 is beautifully finished in every respect, and it opened with a truly satisfying sound and feel - once. And that is all. I don't know if the spring seized, or broke, but it will not open again. So ... back it goes (at my own expense), I will wait for a replacement, and hopefully a month or more after ordering the knife, I will receive one that functions. Had the knife worked properly, I would have given a 5 Star rating, happily, but for a knife that costs $ 200 + to fail so quickly is unacceptable. Back to the quality department, GTC!

Knife center, great... this knife, ok
Ordered the 0055 and the first one I received had the most terrible detent. I could not open the knife without hurting my finger. I talked with kc support and they exchanged it for another 0055. The second knife had zero isssues and is what I wished I would have initially received. Kudos to knife center for the easy exchange
