The 0456CF is the result of Zero Tolerance and Dmitry Sinkevichs collaboration which is based on Dmitrys Custom knife The Pole. This knife consists of a CPM 20CV steel blade and black carbon fiber and titanium handle. ZTs KVT ball bearing system makes for an easy blade release by just pulling back on the flipper. The 0456CF offers exceptional edge-holding performance making it a great knife to take on any escapade.

KAI(Kershaw,ZT etc)sure does use some extremely good quality carbon fiber! The non carbon fiber 0456 is obviously a good bit heavier thus a bit more difficult to EDC.
That being said the 0456CF is a BEAST. One of the few ZT's that came out of the box sharp enough to shave with in my experience. Action is also perfect out of the box. Zero blade play. Zero "issues" at all.
Now that the 0456 has lost a lot of weight now and features gorgeous 3D machined high quality real carbon fiber it is actually worth the premium price.
