Built with premium-quality materials, Zero Tolerance’s 0095BW Titanium Folder offers a dramatic look and a top performance.
The 0095BW’s S35VN stainless steel blade provides a reliable, long-lasting edge along with exceptional toughness and wear resistance. A Tungsten DLC BlackWash™ finish on this “harpoon-style” blade gives the knife a sleek, unified look and hides hard-use edges. The titanium handle provides a secure, comfortable grip. The KVT ball-bearing opening system allows you to quickly and efficiently open the knife, while the titanium frame lock with a hardened lockbar insert secures the blade in the open position during use. A left/right reversible pocketclip allows for easy carrying and deployment of the knife whenever you need it. The decorative, two-toned pivot adds a stylish finishing touch to the 0095BW. Precise, durable, and easy to carry and deploy, Zero Tolerance’s 0095BW Titanium Folder is a powerful knife that will work well for any bold adventure.

S35VN Steel Blade
Crucible’s S35VN modifies the formula of S30V for enhanced toughness and resistance to edge chipping with no loss of wear resistance. Its formula promotes the formation of niobium carbides along with the vanadium and chromium carbides. It provides a sharper, longer-lasting edge.
KVT Opening System
- A manual opening system
- Enables smooth and easy one-handed opening of ZT’s heavier blades, even without a spring or torsion bar
- Uses ball bearings to enable the blade to glide out of the handle
The KVT opening system is a manual opening system that enables smooth, easy blade opening without the use of a spring or torsion bar to “assist” the blade out of the handle. Instead, the KVT system uses a series of ball bearings that surround the pivot point of certain Zero Tolerance folding knives. As a knife user pulls back on the flipper blade intrusion or pushes outward on the thumbstud, the ball bearings rotate so that the blade glides out of the handle then locks into place, ready for use.
Titanium is a lightweight, corrosion-resistant metal with high tensile strength. ZT uses it as a handle material, a liner, a lockbar, or as part of a performance-enhancing coating.
In a frame lock knife, the knife handle – its “frame” – consists of two plates of material on either side of the blade. To ensure a secure lock up, one or both of these plates is usually metal. When the knife is opened, the metal side of the frame, the lockbar, butts up against the backend of the blade (the tang) and prevents the blade from closing. To close a frame lock knife, the user pushes the frame to the side, unblocking the blade, and folds the blade back into the handle. Like locking liner knives, frame locks are manufactured so that the locking side of the frame is angled toward the interior of the knife, creating a bias toward the locked position. Both the blade tang and the lockbar are precisely angled so they fit together for a secure, reliable lockup. The thickness of the frame material blocking the blade open makes the frame lock extremely sturdy.
