The 0452CF is based on the 0454, a Zero Tolerance and Dmitry Sinkevich collaboration, and is very similar to it. It features the two-tone, satin and stonewash, finish on a S35VN blade. It has a carbon fiber front scale and a stonewashed titanium back scale that doubles as the frame lock. It also uses the KVT ball-bearing opening system for easy one-handed opening using the built-in flipper. The 5-spoke pivoting hardware completes this knife.
Dmitry Sinkevich likes to work with the highest quality materials and metals for his knives. When designing knifes he makes them for both knife aficionados and military personnel. He believes a knife can be both a work tool as well as a piece of art.
Zero Tolerance had only a few things in mind when creating and designing their knives. They wanted to make them with top of the line materials as well as being able to stand up to heavy-duty use. A lot of their knives are in collaboration with top knife makers such as Rick Hinderer, Todd Rexford, Jens Anso and Dmitry Sinkevich. Zero Tolerance initially only produced combat knives but have since added a variety of everyday carrying and premium knives, built with the same OVERBUILT designs as their knives that are tailored towards military and law enforcement.

This knife is absolutely beautiful. The carbon fiber and titanium make for an awesome look, and you can not go wrong with S35VN steel. Every time I flip this knife I can't help but smile. The SINKEVICH design mixed with Zero Tolerance's reputation of amazingly overbuilt knives completes a solid and stunning knife. I have a rather large collection and this is an instant favorite!
I have heard from many people that this knife is fantastic however, my knife was lost in the mail and has been since 3/30/2015. Although the customer service in the store is fantastic, the online group can only be describe as less than seller as I have not been refunded for the "Postal Services Issue"
As for the knife, I have several friends who love it.
