Razor Sharp Unlimited Knife Store and Sharpening Service Tampa Florida

Zero Tolerance 0055 Folding Knife Titanium FrameLock In an advance release exclusively for KnifeNews readers, KAI-USA Ltd. announced that it has collaborated with Gustavo T. Cecchini of GTC Knives on new for 2017 Zero Tolerance and Kershaw knives. According to the company three GTC designs, one Zero Tolerance knife and two Kershaws, will debut at SHOT Show next week.

Although the three models will not be unveiled until Tuesday, KAI released an extreme close-up of the forthcoming Zero Tolerance model (shown below). The knife is presumably called the ZT0055 and appears to be a frame lock with a compound grind as seen on GTC knives like the Airborn.

“It’s a real thrill to have Gus working with us,” says KAI’s Thomas Welk. “He’s a purist, with an impeccable attention to detail with regards to a knife’s anatomy.” Cecchini’s work presents a number of cutting edge ideas, some of which will be incorporated into the new Zero Tolerance and Kershaw products. “Both feature the dynamic lines and ingenious knife technologies for which Gus is deservedly well known,” the company says. The Brazilian maker’s portfolio of inventions include a hidden pocket clip, a dual-directional flipper, and even his own patented pivot bearing system.
