Besides a few sprint runs of this knife, the 0452CF is THE BEST KNIFE in the world. Just my opinion of course but I own about 35 ZT knives and the 0452 line is my favorite. Itís shave-sharp, great looking, perfect size (hey bigger is better right?) and buttery smooth with the KVT bearings. My favorite knife to flip when Iím bored.....that alone will make your day or turn that frown upside down :-D go ZT!
P.S. Ronni B, they did make 2 versions with M390 steel, a blue/CF and a rose gold/G-10 version. I have a gold one but a sprint run with s90 or 110v would be awesome.....(ZT I hope youíre reading this) lol

Blade thumps open with ease every time. Beautifully light with the carbon fiber and razor sharp from the s35vn.

Action is the best i have ever felt, butter smooth like its gliding on air. No hot spots, knife fits like a glove in the hand. balance point is dead middle. blade shape and length is amazing, this knife is deffinitly a home run. I hope they come out with the same knife but in different materials like S110v, or S90v and different color barrel spacers. If your thinking about buying this knife BUY IT ALREADY!
Perfect!

Ordered this in December as an early present for myself and I ordered it on a Tuesday and it was there by the end of the week. The knife itself definitely feels like $220 in hand and the fit and finish was impeccable, as is the weight which according to my scale is about 4.2 ounces. It's easy to disassemble and maintain over time and the S35VN holds it's edge. As a large man I enjoy large knives and this one definitely suits my fancy and is worth every penny
great knife

I love this knife! I like a bigger knife and this one feels great! My wife also likes it and has recently been using it as her EDC. Knife came super sharp and keeps a good edge.
So elegant.

This knife is outstanding in terms of weight and quality. Clip could be a little better but overall it is a wonderful knife. If you're looking to buy this knife keep in mind that when it is closed, the blade tip sits really close to the edge of the bottom of the handle and if not careful you can snag things on it. If course, that doesn't really steal any glory from how great this knife is just a heads up.

This knife, while way bigger than necessary is so light and slender that it carries and cuts beautifully. Lightning fast action

Big Knife but not too heavy. Cuts things good enough. Great materials and excellent fit and finish. Has one of the best flipping actions of any knife Ive Handled. Very comfortable to use. Looks good as well. Cant think of anything I don't like about this knife. Was probably my favorite ZT untill I got the 0920

The dozens of YouTube videos youíve repeatedly watched, dissected, and drooled over are accurate. Smooth action, nice reach, and lightweight. Good detent, mind the lock bar. -Never not have a knife.

One of my favorite ZTs. Easy to carry in jeans and easy to carry in a suit. Easy to open once you figure the motion. As normal BHQ shipped fast with no hassle.

This knife is absolutely amazing. It gets more pocket time than any other knife I have. I have used this knife for everything from peeling apples to dressing small game and birds. The KVT bearing system is smooth as silk. The fit and finish is perfect. Blade centering is perfect. Lock up is rock solid. The S35 blade will take a razor edge and stay sharp for a long time. I like this knife so much that I also bought the smaller ZT 0450CF. Thank you ZT and Dmitry Sinkevich. You knocked one out of the park with this knife.
AMAZING

There are many that say that this knife is "scary" or "too big." What do I say? I love this knife in every way shape and form. It fills my hand nice, and as a 6'1" bear shaped dude, it looks right at home in my hand. The action is smooth as butter, and the detent has the perfect resistance (for and experienced flipper, was a bit difficult for my non knife family members) and it deploys every time, even when i point it straight up! Its also very light, due to the titanium and carbon fiber. Overall, this is a fantastic knife and a worthy addition to any knife collection.
Wow. This blade is sweet.

This knife is a home run. But not a grand slam. They wiffed badly on the clip. I know itís the standard ZT/Kershaw clip but dude...that little ugly clip screwed onto that beautiful long titanium scale...just doesnít sit well with me. It just feels and looks a little diminutive and weak contrasting with the rest of the knife. Checkout Ebay, someone is doing anodized hardware and clips for this knife. I bought and installed these mods and it takes this knife into the stratosphere.

Super light, deploys super fast, long blade, large in hand, small in pocket, in/out of pocket fast, jeez idk everything rocks on this knife. With the mods I mentioned above, I would have paid +$300 for it (*nudge* ZT).
Another thrilled buyer

I might as well not even write this review. There are 15 others who are as happy with this knife as I am. This is a mean blade. It flawlessly combines size and smoothness unlike any other. To have a 4.1 inch blade, it weighs nothing. The blade feels like it floats when opening or closing. The frame lock is beautiful and solid as a brick wall. The only downside is that if you aren't careful, the blade will cut your thumb when you unlock it because the action is so smooth. A masterpiece of a knife.

This has got to be my favorite knife that I have gotten in months. It is so smooth and so ergonomic the pictures don't do it justice. The blade is huge but surprisingly it isn't as heavy as you would expect a knife this size to be. It is large but very practical with a deep carry pocket clip (love love love!!!!). I don't buy a lot of knives, I just buy quality knives and this knife exceeds every standard that I wanted to be met. I am going to carry this knife everyday along with my 940-2 and I know that I will always have what I need. Thank you ZT this is an outstanding collaboration!
Sweet action

I've carried a Benchmade 940 and a Spyderco Endura for the past five years. I was reluctant to spend so much money on a knife but the 452cf is worth every penny. I could flick open and drop this thing shut all day.
WOW Just WOW.

This knife is the $hit. From the moment you open this knife you will fall in love. This has to be in my Top 5 EDC blades of all time. The only knife I would chose over it right now is my Benchmade 940-1501. Both are MUST haves in a collection. This knife is a GREAT value at $220 and even if the cost was $300+ it would be a good buy. ZT / DS have created something special and we are Privileged to own this Knife. Wow...
Zero tolerance is the best

I've had this knife for awhile now and it hasn't let me down. The action is still smooth and there is no play in the lockup . The clip was small so I took the clip off a 0801bw Rexford design and put it on this one, it's cool cause I have 2 of the elmax Rexfords. The size of this blade is another cool thing. It feels great in the hand, you won't be disappointed just change the clip.
The new go-to

I purchased this knife recently and it is my first ZT. I was a a bit hesitant to purchase this knife for EDC but after one day of carrying it and forgetting it was there several times the worry faded into a smile. Yes it is a big blade, but it fits in the hand perfectly and carries like a knife half the size.
Couldn't be happier with my purchase. I can't find something I don't like about the overall design and shape, and it is razor sharp. I was afraid the carbon fiber would seem cheap or fragile but just the opposite is true for this ZT. The carbon fiber is VERY nice, robust, and you can tell no corners were cut in the making of this knife.

If you are looking to purchase your first ZT, BUY WITH CONFIDENCE! If you are a ZT owner..well...you already know how awesome they are, and this is an seriously awesome model to add to your collection!
Great

After purchasing the Boker plus Kwaiken tuxedo and I was so disappointed. I decided to get my first ZT and 0452cf is the first I wanna get before the Hinderer designs. I was worried about the QC until it came. Blade is very sharp and perfectly centered, no blade play, the handle finish is excellent especially the carbon scale. The only problem is the detent was too strong, but it's fine after few days of flipping and it breaks in. And the pocket clip is somehow too small for a 4.1' blade. It's a large blade but it weights like its a smaller blade. Recommended
Magnificent USA made knife

New to Zero Tolerance but not knives, This 0452cf is smooth as silk, Perfectly centered, Easy to carry in pocket and a whole lot of blade when you flip it open. This is my second ZT and just ordered another(0560) since these have both been perfect knives with a really nice fit and finish. I hope ZT continues to create more fantastic knives like this one. I now know why these knives are so popular. Then to top it off BLADEHQ has been extremely great to deal with. Way to go!
Ridiculous

I have very large hands, fits my hand perfect. Carbon fiber handles look great and makes the knife incredibly light for its size. Superb craftsmanship. Awesome materials and blade steel. I have 6 other ZT knives but this one for sure is turning to be one of my favorites amazing knife. It's crazy how big of a blade this knife has but carries so well in the pocket and is so light and balanced. Thanks Blade HQ!

I purchased my ZT 0452CF a few months ago and I could not be more satisfied. I really like this knife. It flips like a bolt of lightning. It disappears in your pocket and it's light to carry. ZT has a winner with this knife for sure. If your on the fence about buying one, let me tell you make the jump. You will not be disappointed.

ZT has knocked it outa the park with this one.
For a 4" blade, it's extremely light and slim. Takes up very little pocket real estate. Once the action breaks in, it's a fantastic flipper. Highly highly recommended.
My favorite ZT by far

Best size ZT IMO, I had a 0562CF and sold it, this one is a much better design, fits the hand perfect, detent is extremely crisp, and lockup and centering are perfection and S35VN is one of my favorites.

The only other ZT I see myself buying than this one is a variant of the 0454 or an 0450.

Fantastic knife. Do note, as it came it was very difficult to open, I was afraid something was wrong, but by flipping it often and working the action it loosened up. The blade shape looks great and is very useful. The knife is very light. This is one of my most favorite folders.
New favorite!

This blade is pure awesomeness! I love a long blade, but this thing is so lite, so fast and has a lot of belly. Was a big fan of the O562 cf and 0801 cf, but this thing just fits! Perfect!
