Zero Tolerance Knives
Zero Tolerance and Belarusian custom knifemaker Dmitry Sinkevich have teamed up to produce the 0456. The 0456 offers the premium cutting power for which ZT is well known in a knife with standout looks that are just waiting to be shown off. 

Based on Dimitry's popular custom knife, The Pole, the 0456 features the 3D rayed handle contours and custom blade shape that defined the original design. The high-quality CPM-20CV blade steel is wear and corrosion resistant and takes an exceptional edge. The blade's premium quality is matched only by its good looks—with an appealing two-tone finish that's stonewashed on the flats and satin on the grinds. The 0456 opens with ZT's KVT ball-bearing system for a quick, easy blade release. A titanium frame lock, with a hardened steel lockbar insert, firmly secures the blade open during use.

The 0456 deftly balances handsome appearance and solid utility. On the appearance side, the pivot hardware, custom aluminum backspacer, and left/right reversible pocket clip are finished in a brilliant blue. On the utility side, the 0456 offers top cutting capabilities and excellent edge-holding performance making it the perfect tool to take along with you on any bold adventure.

Earlier production runs of this knife were made with CTS-204P steel blades. Current production uses CPM-20CV. Which blade steel your knife has depends on when it was made.

Great knife build!
There are a lot of things I like about this knife. It is built well with a thick titanium frame, thick blade, lockbar insert, and captured pivot. The ergonomics are solid, the knife is easy to use and hold. But, the blade is not super hardened. It doesn't really hold a fine edge very long which was a major disappointment for me. For this blade steel they could have gone much harder. I have other blades in CPM-20CV that seem to stay sharp forever. I used a cold steel 4max to chop through a log and it was still shaving sharp afterward. Anyway, doesn't mean this ZT blade is bad it just isn't up to the performance of this steel type.

No BS review
I read a review on here that seemed to paint an inaccurate picture of this knife so I felt I needed to give the facts of this without the BS. Firstly this is a Reeve Integral Frame-Lock not a liner-lock. It has a hardened steel lock insert that eliminates the possibility of any lock stick. I've owned three of these knives and have given them as gifts and each is consistent in quality control. I've carried and put them through abuse to see how they hold up and they perform flawlessly. Each one locks up at about 40-50% so the lock will not fail as long as you maintain the tool and don't neglect it. Though the blade stock is a bit thick this is a great slicer due to its blade shape and flat grind. The blade steel is some of the best and uses the American version of the popular M390. The grind on all three knives is symetrical as is the grind of the swedge. The knife dissassembles without issue (make sure to poperly heat the pivot to loosen the Loctite and you'll have no problems). It runs on caged bearings (no plastic parts), has a stainless steel pivot, and aluminum backspacer. The detent is strong enough where when the flipper is engaged the knife rockets open. I have not noticed any wear or deformation on the detent ball after a year of carry and use. The stock pocket clip sucks, however there are plenty of aftermarket clips that suit the knife perfectly (this is not a determining factor). All three knives came perfectly centered and razor sharp. Depending on the hand this is a very ergonomic knife. I have medium sized hands and it locks into my palm like a bank vault. No hotpots from carrying, flipping, or slicing. One thing I wish it had was a little gimping on the spine for smaller tasks but this is just an opinion. The knife, though a bit heavy, has perfect balance and can be balanced on a finger tip where the index would normally sit when cutting. For the materials this is a great buy for the price and for great QC and customer service ZT does a fantastic job backing their product.

Not at all
This is not what I would expect from a knife of this supposed 'quality'. Not in the least. It doesn't flip, feels awkward in the hand and will slip from your hand with just the least amount of sweat/water/etc. Literally you have to use two hands to open this; or flick it about 3-4 times to fully open. I just read a review about someone (and saw pictures) about the liner lock failing on him and having to get major surgery. It wasn't this knife but now I question the integrity of these knives. Also, you'll strain your fingers trying to lift or adjust this pocket clip.
