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.

So ZT is doing something about that with the new 0450. While based on the original’s streamlined form and high-performance function, this new and more compact version will be much more readily available. With its 3.25-inch blade and lightweight-yet-stronger-than-steel titanium handles, the 0450 has a sleek and sophisticated look that, we think, makes it a perfect EDC.

ZT built it with an S35VN stainless blade that sharpens to a razor edge, holds it well, and can be resharpened easily. The knife opens smoothly and easily with the KVT ball-bearing opening system and built-in flipper. A titanium frame lock with hardened steel lockbar insert ensures solid lock up. Polished pivot hardware just adds to the 0450's refined good looks.

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.

First ZT knife. Won't be the last.
The Zero Tolerance 0450 is my first dive into mid-range knives. It is everything I hoped for. Fit and finish is excellent, blade centering is spot on. I'm a relatively small guy by American standards so this knife fit well in my hand. The blade came sharp out of the box. Simply perfection.

Almost unbelievable action
I have a lot of knives, a number of them high-end production models (e.g., ZT, Spyderco, etc.), all the way down through mid-level production (e.g., Kershaw, CRKT, etc), to offshore production no names. So I'm by no means a knife snob, but I know an exceprionally executed folder when I see it. The ZT 0450 is such a folder. The folks at Kai must have spent aa LOT of time getting the pivot and the bearing system just right, because this is the best action of any knife I have ever owned. This thing opens faster than my ZT0770CF--and that one's an assisted open! Incredible. It's open in the blink of an eye. And when you release the framelock, it's unrel how freely the blade moves around the pivot, yet there's no play in any direction when the blade is deployed--there isn't even any play side-to-side when the blade is HALF open! I'm floored by the engineering and the workmanship on this. While the handle is not textured, no grip issues. It's narrow enough--a good thing for a gentleman's folder--so that it stays tight between my knuckles and the top of my palm, if I need a tactical grab. It's also ergonomic enough so that it's fine for everyday EDC tasks (packaging, twine, fruit, cheese, breaking down cardboard boxes). Nice S35VN steel from Crucible, in upstate NY. Great grind; this thing slices effortlessly. The pocket clip, while initially seeming a bit much for such a light knife, serves another purpose: it makes it easy to deploy the blade without grabbing onto the framelock and getting in your own way. I note that in some other reviews, a couple of people had trouble with this. Don't worry about it. No issue. You get used to it in seconds. And I have very large hands (XL to XXL glove size), so if anyone was going to have trouble with this, it'd be me. This is a perfect gentleman's EDC: light, unobtrusive, and although seemingly slight, built like a ZT. This thing is strong. When the blade is deployed, not is there only no lateral movement, but I cant bend the blade--at all. Wolf in sheep's clothing. So go ahead and turn the occasional screw with the back of the blade (Oh, you've done that too, don't deny it). It can take it. And it arrived arm-hair-shaving sharp. The only thing I'd change: I'd make the clip a deeper carry. But as it is, it's not bad. And in non-permissive environments, this knife is light enough so that it's an easy carry in the bottom of a pocket. Wow, a ZT like this?! Understated and elegant looks, impeccably engineered and beautifully executed. I[ve handled so-called custom knives that were not this good in fit and finish. For this level of product, a reasonable price. Get it, you won't be sorry.
