Zero Tolerance 0990 Frame Lock Carbon Fiber

Based on the award-winning 0999, the 0990 streamlines this legendary design. Despite its skeletonized structure, this ZT is reliably strong thanks to its steel construction. Other elements pay homage to the original 0999, including an exposed “floating bridge” near the top of the handle, carbon fiber scales with a front steel overlay, and cutout windows in the blade and near the pivot. Instead of a ZT logo on the blade itself, the words “Zero Tolerance” are subtly debossed into the backspacer. The CPM 20CV blade offers excellent edge retention and opens reliably with KVT ball bearings. Once unobtainable for most, the 0990 offers the best way to bring the legend home.

  • Made in the USA
  • Based on the legendary 0999 design; includes a steel skeletonized structure, carbon fiber scales, and window cutouts
  • CPM 20CV blade steel is heat-treated for exceptional hardness, wear resistance, and edge retention; stonewashed blade finish hides use scratches

“I walked into Timber Knives knowing nothing about knives but wanting to find my husband a Christmas gift. They were so kind and walked me through all my options and answered all my questions. Such a cool store. Such a cool staff. Highly recommend and my husband loved his present. We will be repeat customers for sure.”

"Super classy shop! High quality knives, amazing atmosphere and the best service anywhere!! Honest and knowledgeable. This is THE PLACE to shop!"

Adam J.

"Fantastic shop! Very helpful and has a good variety of Knives, Axes, and Accessories. They were able to reshape one my old knives that I’ve had for about ten years. The tip broke off a couple years ago by another person that used it. Now the knife looks like it had never happened. Definitely will be back for a new fixed blade when it gets closer to hunting season!"
