ZT0452CF: Model 0452CF
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.

Buy this before they're gone
I haven't left the house without a good knife for 35 years, thanks to the kind wisdom of a knife collecting father. I have an office job; I carry for all the random food and non food things that crop up in your life. From bagels to carving a five gallon square industrial paint bucket from where it got trapped between my tire and undercarriage on the freeway. That was a heck of a thing. And finally, like so many, I EDC in case the SHTF. I test my locks. If your life depends on the lock, you test. So because almost everything failed, I stuck with benchmade's axis lock. Mostly 710 variations. This Sinkevich design though, looked perfect, and the price was great for titanium, carbon fiber, and S35VN. So I took a chance on the lock. Pleasantly surprised, passed the testing, lots of top custom and factory frame locks don't. Then I carried it and used it and fell in love with it. The design is brilliant. It carries very light and easy with no big pocket bulge. Opens instantly - and yes, you have to work it a while to losen the tight action. Which is fine. Glues to your hand even though the side panels are actually pretty smooth. By themselves there wouldn't be enough grip but the shape can handle any style of hold. Even - crucially - the reverse blade down Pikal grip. With no hole or stud on the handle it's far easier to keep clean, and you get more usable edge. It's sort of huge by comparison with all the 3.5 knives out there... when open. When shut, carries as easy as my Osborn autoassist. So this knife, unfortunately, meets every one of my needs. Centering was great, lockup tight, sharp out of the box. The last like 10th of a millimeter of the tip was drawn too thin at the factory, and after hitting rid of that I put a regulated 40 degree on it. It's lasted fine and was relatively easy to sharpen. Five stars

Very Nice, a Bit Tight Out of the Box
If you are coming from smaller folding knives this one will surprise you. It's large with a long blade, but fortunately still quite light. The mechanism locks open and closed with a solid clack which will either impress or scare your friends. I like how there is no play or wobble in any part of the knife when it's open and closed. It really shows the tight tolerances. At the same time, the ball detent is quite firm for the first hundred or so deployments so get ready for a tired finger if you flip the knife open out of a nervous habit. It may have been nice to have a thumb stud that could have been used for additional assist. I assume the detent will loosen over time and the deployment will become easy, making the thumb stud redundant. The only real problem I've had with this is the fact that the frame lock portion is quite wide so it's easy for noobs to grip that portion while attempting to deploy the blade. This puts additional force on the ball detent and makes it impossible to open. If ZT reduced the width of the lock bar essentially, or maybe textured the frame portion to help guide/remind users where their fingers go, that would help if a quick self defense deployment was ever needed. They did however texture the hinge where the frame lock bends from the frame so that's a nice added. Anyways, once you get used to this blade it's fantastic. The steel and blade geometry are great and the materials and assembly are on point for sure. You can't go wrong with this blade.
