Zero Tolerance Knives
The original Zero Tolerance 0454 was an award-winning collaboration between ZT and custom knife designer Dmitry Sinkevich. But it was also a very Limited Edition knife.

To make this amazing knife more readily available, ZT has created a new-for-2015 version based on the original’s streamlined form and high-performance function. The 0452CF is the same size as the original 0454, but with a carbon fiber front scale and S35VN dual-finished blade. S35VN sharpens to a razor edge, holds it, and can be resharpened easily. The 0452CF opens as smooth as butter with the KVT ball-bearing opening system and built-in flipper. A titanium frame lock with hardened steel lockbar insert ensures solid lock up.

As a final touch of class, the 0452CF features handsome 5-spoke pivot hardware. From office to outdoors, the 0452CF is ready to go wherever you're ready to take it.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Carbon Fiber Handles

Cons: None
USA made and one of the best
The action is a bit tight out of the box but once it breaks in for a large blade it flies out of the handle. This knife is fantastic. Sharp, great action, and large! Can't ask for anything more or better from a production folder, bravo ZT.

A Big Beautiful Knife
There are many great reviews of this knife in regards to materials, design and usage. This review will be a little different and hopefully will help folks like me. This knife was a first for me in many regards: (1) it was the most expensive knife I've ever purchased up to that date, (2) it was the first titanium frame lock I ever purchased and (3) it was the first flipper I ever purchased. I've been reluctant about spending over $100 for a knife so it would take something special for me go beyond that ceiling. This knife is indeed that special. It was perfectly finished and has been a joy to use and own. I would purchase it again if it were lost. I've never been opposed to a titanium frame lock, but the cost of those usually exceeds $100. I must say that I like the locking mechanism, but I also like Axis locks, compression locks, liner locks and lock backs too. The lock was not the primary reason I purchases the knife; however, it is nice with this particular knife. It makes is a very slim package for a knife this large. I've been on the fence about flippers for quite some time. I've mostly seen friends' flipper knives and those knives tended to be in the $50 range. I wasn't impressed and tend to value smoothness in deployment rather than speed. This knife is super smooth and deploys quite fast. There is a real quality difference between this knife and those in a $50-$100 range as there should be. I'm rally enjoying this knife immensely. Also, I'd like to give kudos to Knife Center staff. The knife shipped fast. Unfortunately, my letter carrier initially delivered it to the wrong address. It took me a couple extra days before I finally received it. I immediately contacted Knife Center staff and they responded quickly. I appreciate their courtesy and quick follow-up with me. I look forward to continuing to purchase products fro them in the future. I liked the ZT 0452 so much that I purchased a ZT 0562CF from them about 1 week later which is now the most expensive knife I own.
