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 re-sharpened 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. Handle Thickness- 0.5 inches.
4.1-inch S35VN steel blade shows amazing toughness and resistance to edge chipping, with improved edge retention. Handle features carbon fiber front and titanium stonewashed back for comfortable in-hand feel, increased strength and excellent size/weight proportion. Handsome, dual blade finish with a non-reflective satin finish on the grind and stonewashed finish on the flats and blade thickness is 0.156 inches. Great companion for hunters, business professionals, wilderness guides, survival experts, first responders, military, law-enforcement and more.
Ideal gift for any special occasion such as birthdays, holidays, graduations, anniversaries, promotions, weddings and more. 4 two-tone finish S35VN steel drop point blade. Black carbon fiber handle with stonewash finish stainless back handle. When a knife design requires a lighter blade to highlight the steel, Kershaw often applies a satin finish. Satin finishes, whether machine-generated or otherwise, leave faint patterns of lines on the steel, and while they sand away the steel's brightness, they do not remove it as completely as do other finishes.A satin finish also helps reduce evidence of stains and scratches on the blade. Depending on the knife's design, Kershaw's non-reflective stonewashed finish may be either pronounced or subtle, but in both cases, it transforms the blade by creating a fade-resistant, scuffed look that hides smudges and fingerprints. A stonewashed finish, achieved by tumbling a blade with ceramic stones, enhances a blade's rugged appearance as well as its indestructibility during field use. Using'caged' ball bearings for smooth blade deployment and overcoming stronger knife detent, the KVT Ball-Bearing Opening System makes one-handed knife opening fast and easy without the need of a mechanical assist. Ball-bearings surround and freely rotate around the pivot.
When the user pulls back on the flipper, the blade rotates out of the handle as the ball bearings roll into place. Kershaw's frame lock design makes knives safer, securer, sturdier and quicker for one-handed blade deployment. The knife handle, or frame, has two metal plates on either side of the blade, and when open, the lockbar butts up against the blade's backend to prevent blade closure.To close the knife blade, push the frame to the side to unlock the blade and fold the blade back into the handle. Flippers on manual-open knives require user to push with quick strength until blade deploys. Some manual flippers disappear when blade deploys, others become a finger guard.
Manual flippers appeal to inexperienced users as well as experienced users who prefer a classic, old-style opening. In both cases, ambidextrous flipper works as index finger applies pressure while closed knife sits in palm. A reinforced polymer of thin strands of carbon tightly woven, carbon fiber is tremendously strong yet lightweight. Strong weaves of bonded carbon atoms are used to compose carbon fiber in both Kershaw high-end knife handles and Zero Tolerance premium materials. With solid strength, wear resistance and corrosion resistance, carbon fiber is an excellent, high-performing, high-quality knife handle.
Titanium is a lightweight metal alloy and it offers excellent corrosion resistance. Heavier than aluminum but still lightweight and strong, titanium is a very sturdy material often used in knife handles, locking liners, or as a blade coating to enhance performance. Titanium is a sleek, stylish, premium material that's excellent for the ideal everyday carry.
