When knife designer Dmitry Sinkevich collaborates with ZT Knives, only greatness ensues. A couple of years ago the ZT 0454 was an award winning effort between the aforementioned but it was extremely limited and thus hard to get. So to please the masses (myself included) ZT decided to produce the 0452, a newer streamlined version for 2015.
The ZT 0452CF is the same size and dimensions as the 0454 but with a carbon fiber front scale and Titanium back. The Titanium hardened frame lock has a hardened steel lockbar insert for rock solid lockup while maintaining a lightweight frame. To add a touch of class, ZT has installed a 5 spoke pivot for a nice eye catching custom look. The handle has some excellent ergonomics and fits well in the hand.
This frame lock folder features a reversible deep carry pocket clip for ambidextrous carry. When closed this knife measures 5.2" and weighs just 4.6 ounces.
The 0452 comes with a 4.1" S35VN satin and stonewashed blade that comes razor sharp out of the box. The beautiful finish is another ZT Knives requirement. The blade rolls out smoothly on ZT's KVT ball bearing system per usual. The integrated flipper makes one handed opening a pleasure and the flipping action is great as with most ZT knives.
