Zero Tolerance GTC 0055 Flipper Knife Titanium (3.75" Stonewash) ZT

The Zero Tolerance 0055 is a brilliant collaboration that draws inspiration from the Airborne folder by Gus T. Cecchini of GTC Knives. This flipper knife features Gus' SLT hidden flipper tab, making it so the flipper is concealed when the knife is closed to keep the aerodynamic lines of the 0055 intact. To deploy the blade, pull back on the SLT to reveal the hidden tab, and use the flipper to activate ZT's smooth KVT ball-bearing fueled action.

The ZT 0055's precision machined titanium handle is fitted with a bright sky blue anodized backspacer, durable frame lock, and hardened steel lockbar insert. Its reverse tanto blade is made from CPM-S35VN with a compound grind and stonewashed finish. Comes complete with a reversible tip-up pocket clip.

  • CPM-S35VN steel offers enhanced toughness and wear resistance.
  • ZT's KVT ball-bearing pivot system provides superb flipping action.
  • SLT (spring-loaded tab) keeps the flipper tab concealed when closed.

Customer Reviews

Cool and unique carry
Spenser K. on Jul 11, 2019

What drew me in was the shape of the blade and handle, what kept me in and finally got me to make the purchase was how different it is from every other knife I own. It looks long at first, but once you put it in your pocket, it's right at home, and ready to flip out with that sweet unique flipper tab.

Eric B. on May 30, 2019

First thing is this knife is huge, the blade is beautiful and long. The handle is very comfy in hand. It feels great in pocket for being so large. Ive had this knife for awhile and I use it mostly opening boxes and light food prep. The flipper tab is awesome, I've never seen a design like this and it works very well. I haven't taken it apart for cleaning yet, the spring in the flipper tab worries me. The blue backspacer looks great and the machining on the handle looks and feels great in hand. Very unique knife happy to have this in my collection. Optimus Prime would be proud to own one.

Beautiful Design
Alex g. on Mar 14, 2019

Absolutley Beautiful design however it is very hard to sharpen. At least it was for me. I hope to see more SLT system in more ZTs

So good
Travis A. on Feb 15, 2019

Love this unique knife
Jason R. on Feb 3, 2019

Stealth fighter of ZT
Mark G. on Feb 2, 2019

It is a fighter jet of a cutting machine. The hidden flipper nice. The cool blade shape and the machined titanium makes this a cool hi tec cutter

Drunk alien
Tyler P. on Jan 15, 2019

If an alien was drunk at a bar and left his blade on the sink, this would be it. It's fooken YUGE, too. Longest one I have, even longer than the full sized Griptilian. It's difficult to open at times. It's to be expected since it's darn near a custom knife, but at $150+ I would think it would be a lot easier – so there goes one star. (Sorry not sorry). Regardless, if you're a collector, pick this one up because they won't be around for long. **EDIT**Opens like butter now. Just had to play with it. But, hey, I like playin' with it.

Buy it before you can't
Matthew T. on Jan 6, 2019

I'm left handed so i dont have any issues with the frame lock and the knife is beautiful. smooth action and an awesome design. i was thinking i would have the handles anodized but turns out i like the look the way it is. I still wish they put a different clip on it but whatever. it is a little poky if you're wearing it in the waistband of sweatpants.

New ZT 0055 awesomeness.
Michael B. on Dec 31, 2018

Just got the 0055 and everything people have said about how well it opens and closes is spot on. Love the SLT and how when it breaks to open it just flies out like a rocket and a great snap. Drops shut really well.

Almost perfect.
Chris B. on Dec 7, 2018

Strong statement but for me this knife is almost perfect. I think the size could be smaller and I would like more color options and stuff like that. The milling is great, scales are great, clip functions well but could look better, blade is great(if you like compound grinds) materials are great and its wrapped up in a well thought out design. Love the SLT function. The best thing here is the deployment. It's simple smooth and fun to do. Over and over. I would say if you like to fidget then get this knife. It's a blast. happy collecting all.

Jack H. on Dec 2, 2018

I just received my knife a few days ago, and I am extremely impressed with quality. The fit and finish was great, the action is astounding, and it came very sharp out of the box. This was my first ZT knife purchase, and I know it will not be my last!

Twice Impressed
Jacob M. on Nov 22, 2018

Just received my second 0055 a few days ago, and already just as impressed as the first one I received a year ago. Smooth action, solid lockup and centering. An all around amazing example of quality and attention to detail from a production knife manufacturer. If you’re on the fence, buy now, because these will be gone shortly!

Custom captured production
Gabriel A. on Jan 19, 2018

This knife was my most anticipated release from ZT, and it did not disappoint. The blade flies open with the SLT (spring loaded tab) and locks securely. The action was perfectly dialed on mine. Love the blue back spacer that came with it. Zero Tolerance knives continues to impress!

Zt 0055
Dallas D. on Jan 8, 2018

As a long time collector i was looking forward to the release of a production version of a GTC knife, his high end customs are well out of my budget these days. I was not let down at all, the fit and finish is second to none and what we have come to exspect from the ZT line up. Feels great in hand and well balance the hidden tab took a little time to break in but once it did its smooth as butter. Super sharp out of the box which is a standard for Zt. Cant wait to see whats next year

Knife with attitude!
Chad B. on Jan 6, 2018

This knife just gets out there and screams - it is an eye catching knife with the blade and the function is great. The fit and finish is right up there and it is a fun carry.

Dan p. on Jan 5, 2018

Great action! I love the SLT system, and wish it was on more knives.

Awesome Knife
Ian F. on Sep 11, 2017

The ZT 0055 is an excellent knife and one that I have been carrying for about 2 months now. The action is silky smooth and the blade came razor sharp. It's a very angular design but very ergonomic in hand. The Spring Loaded Tab makes for quick deployment but does take some getting use to. S35VN is a great blade steel and works well with this design. If your thinking about buying this knife just pull the trigger on it, worth every penny.
