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).

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.
Best pocket knife

This is the best pocket knife I have ever owned that should say it all!
Top 3 All Time

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.

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
Floyd D.
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 already know how awesome they are, and this is an seriously awesome model to add to your collection!

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!

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!

This is one awsome knife. Super fast and smooth , light weight and sleek. Great blade steel cpm s35vn . This is my favorite ZT. Hands down the best !!! You won't be disappointed if you purchase this one.
Edward G.
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.
Absolute Homerun
Jon P.
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
Cody W.
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.
Isaac A.
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!
Robert S.
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!
