The smoothness is amazing
Seth B.
I had my eye on this knife for a long time. And I came close a few times to buying it but never did. And I am so glad I bought it. It's the perfect size for EDC. The flipping action is the best of any flipper I've owned. Fit and finish are perfect in every way. If you're on the fence about this knife. Do yourself a favor and try it out.

Very lightweight pocket knife. Extremely high quality. Titanium scales, CPM S35VN blade (3.25"). Flips without effort. Very elegant looking. I've seen some reviews about it being hard to open but my experience is quite the contrary. If you hold the knife without applying pressure on the lockbar it shoots open with authority. It's an EDC knife for carrying around town. I would not use it as a hardcore camping knife, not because it's not capable of hard use, but for $160 I'd rather use it for more urban tasks. I didn't go for the titanium and carbon fiber combination. For my taste, it seemed more sturdy with all titanium construction. The only complaint was the pocket clip. Looked great but it's not deep carry and a portion of the handle shows. I ordered a deep carry clip in titanium for $23 from MXG Gear and now it's perfect. No ZT logos on the clip, carries very deep and it's solid. As usual Blade HQ service is impeccable.
My new EDC

I would highly recommend this knife to anyone who isn't concerned by the price tag.

I've had this knife for about 3 months now, and it quickly found itself supplanting my mini-grip as my go-to knife. Smooth action on the flipper makes it almost hard to tell it's not assisted-opening, and it locks up solid. The only potential issue I see with the flipper action is that, if you put pressure on the locking bar, it puts pressure on the blade, preventing opening; however, it is very easy to hold the knife for opening without even touching the locking bar. The blade is still sharp after just basic maintenance (I like to strop any knife I've used in the week every weekend).

I don't like using pocket clips, so I can't speak to this one very much; however, without the pocket clip, the knife comfortably and easily sits in my pocket.

The titanium handle, as titanium handles usually do, feels great any time I need it.

As a final point, the knife LOOKS beautiful, and has garnered compliments from anyone who has seen it. I'm in favor of function over form in an EDC, but this knife has plenty of both.
High quality

Received this knife today. I currently carry the ZT 0900. Now that knife is an absolute beast. It has a shorter blade, and it's very thick. This knife, the 0450 has a longer, thinner blade. It's very lightweight and comfortable in the hand. The blade is razor sharp. Fit and finish is top-notch as we've come to expect from ZT. Honestly, there aren't any negative comments to make about this knife. Watch the video and read the reviews. I highly recommend this product.
Great knife
scott w.
Several things I like about this knife. The detent is strong, flips fantastic with the KVT bearing and is light. As others have said, pressure on the frame lock needs to be avoided. I wear a large glove so I almost returned it for difficulty opening. I'm glad I gave it a few days. The knife became really smooth and figured out how to not put pressure on the frame lock.

I highly recommend.
Best ZT
Robert O.
I have been wanting to go smaller with my EDCs and decided to purchase the small Sebenza Insingo. I also thought having a smaller flipper would be good too as a back up. After reading reviews online I bought the ZT 0450 and both knives came on the same day. As we all know that the tolerances of the sebenza is second to none however after carrying both knives for several weeks now, I enjoy carrying the 0450 more. The flipping action is extremely smooth and the knife has a great feel in the hand. I have medium sized hands and it fits perfectly without my last finger hanging off the back of the knife. My opinion is that it is a great EDC. The materials are excellent. It locks up rock solid and is extremely lightweight. A must have in your collection!
Lock is my complaint
Patrick M.
Love the design, blade and handle. My complaint is with the lock. It just catches leaving me with little confidence with the lock up.
Sweet manual flipper that opens every time.
Eric J.
I completely echo Preston's review. I like a light weight manual EDC, and this has caught my fancy right out of the box. The detent on this small flipper, with nice jimping, is Perfect.

Pros - Perfect blade shape and content and light weight titanium manual flipper makes this an EDC easily put into the rotation. Extreme ZT quality.

Cons - not as secure grip as the small Sebenza. Somewhat Spartan design. Not enough to take a point off. Enjoy.
sebenza eater!!

I really love this knife, I'd compare it to a small sebenza. The fit and finish is excellent on this knife, sharp as heck out of the box I love the red back spacers, they add some pop to the knife. My only one and only gripe about this knife is if you put a small amount of pressure on the back spacer the knife is very hard to deploy. Other than that one of the best knives for the money. Great edc blade actually. Excellent blade if your a knife guy or gal. This is a must have!
