Zero Tolerance 0450 Folding Knife | 7.4" Overall, S35VN Steel, ZT0450
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.

High-quality flipperBy: Nathanael C on 7 June 2019I like this knife, it's light, good steel, but the action is very stiff. Took me some time disassembling it, oiling the bearings and dialling in the action and even so there's no way this thing is going to open accidentally. Had a sore fingertip the next day after opening and shutting it a hundred times the previous night to break it in.
