The Sinkevich-designed 0452 is one of many new models released by Zero Tolerance in 2017--this time as a limited sprint run sporting a glow-in-the-dark handle. Each model features an ultra-premium stainless steel blade that is deployed with an ambidextrous flipper function and the KVT ball-bearing manual opening system allows for quick fluid action even without the use of any springs. Additionally, each knife features a frame lock design in addition to including a steel lockbar insert for a superb lockup and the satin finished 5-spoke pivot screw it unique among the competition. This sprint run version features a glow-in-the-dark carbon fiber front handle scale, a titanium rear handle scale in a DLC coating, a drop point style blade in DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) finish and the reversible titanium pocket clip is designed for tip up carry only but is eligible for a left or right hand carry option. Made in the USA.

It's definitely a nice knife, built like a tank, premium fit and finish, and a good action, the 0452CF is one of my favorite ZT's, so getting this one was a "no brainier".
