Perfect EDC blade
ryan d.
Just what I was looking for! Most ZT knives are simply too big for everyday carry. I wanted something light, yet strong and that could still get the job done. This knife is the answer. Great ergos, fits perfectly in my pocket and weighs almost nothing! 10/10

Sent one of these back where I purchased it... it was extremely difficult to open. The one that replaced it was just as difficult. Of all my flippers this is hands-down the hardest to open. It certainly doesn't "flip." I can open it, but it all but tears my rotator snapping my arm to do so. Kept #2, but I don't carry it. Looks good in the display case though.
Buy it before it Doubles in Price

Zero Tolerance/Kershaw owned by Kai USA Ltd. Has a reputation for ending production of knives. Not saying this is a new Kershaw Tilt. But it reminds me of it.

#1. If it was $280 its still sell
#2. As others have said This is a new 2016 Paramilitary 2 challenger.
#3. Buy it if you can find it they will be sold Out til Mid 2017 soon.
#4. Don't be shocked if it goes out of production and its $400 soon.
#5. Show me another $180 S35VN Carbon Fiber knife at this Price point ?

This ZT is wicked. The design and size were the biggest selling points for me as I wanted a Sinkevich in a smaller form factor. The carbon fibre is nice and has the slightest of texture. The green pillars are a very nice attribute. The action is super smooth and has no issues opening. Opens with definitive authority and is very easy to close one handed. The bearings used are so smooth that the blade has a tendency to want to bite just from the smallest of a flick to put away the blade so watch the fingers. The lock up is rock solid and there is zero movement. Blade centering is spot on. Would buy again if I ever lost this.

Always wanted a ZT but always spent my money on Benchmade or Spyderco. After my girlfriend bought this for me for my birthday I wish I would have bought this knife forever ago! Super light and extremely smooth opening. Extremely sharp out of box and the green bushings look great when in pocket.

An excellent knife.

Blade steel, profile, and finish are all top notch. Titanium handle is likewise well built. The carbon fiber front scale is smooth, but with slight texturing- has to be felt to truly understand, but elegant and functional at the same time. No side-to-side or up-and-down blade play whatsoever. Locks up smooth, about 30% lock engagement- plenty of room to wear into. No slipping or disengagement of lock, even with spine strikes. Fasteners all tight, and thread locked. The detent is strong, but with the flipper and ball bearing pivot, the blade stays shut when you want it to, and deploys fast, and with authority. The force necessary to disengage the detent is sufficient to fully open the blade; try as I might, I couldn't manage to "short stroke" the opening- it snapped into place every time. Open handle, with green barrel standoffs, somewhere between lime and emerald green. A nice touch. Two-screw vertical pocket clip, tip up L/R only.

Only one thing stops it from being five stars: the blade is slightly off-center in the closed position. Not much, only a millimeter or so, but enough to be noticeable. Even with all fasteners loosened and carefully re-tightened, it's still there. the fit and finish is otherwise excellent, and it slight off center does affect operation whatsoever.

Would recommend this nice; an excellent EDC/dress knife, which will also work defensively in a pinch. Looks good, feels good, and works well. Personal preference, maybe a deep carry pocket clip would be a nice addition.
Amazing quality

This knife is as sweet as the other 0450, only lighter. Flips open fast as lightning. It's so smooth and slick, when its open you check for blade play, and there is none. The lockbar insert makes closing a breeze. The carbon fiber is not too shiny, not too dull. Nice. It actually looks good with the green spacers. Blade is great. Top quality. The printing of the serial number and everything is crisp and defined. Would buy again.
