The original 0452 was a collaboration between ZT and custom knife designer Dmitry Sinkevich. This Sprint Run version has all the style of the original—plus a glow-in-the-dark carbon fiber front.
Shine a light on the 0452GL and the carbon fiber front scale glows. Without the added light, all you see is discreet black carbon fiber. The blade is S35VN, which sharpens to a razor edge, holds it, and can be resharpened easily. For enhanced performance and blade protection, ZT gives the blade a black DLC coating. The 0452GL opens smoothly and easily with the KVT ball-bearing opening system and built-in flipper. A titanium frame lock with hardened steel lockbar insert ensures solid lock up.
The 0452GL features a handsome 5-spoke pivot and a deep-carry pocketclip. From office to outdoors—and daytime to dark—the 0452GL is ready to go wherever you're ready to take it.
The 0452GL is a Sprint Run, built in limited quantity.
KVT BALL-BEARING OPENING SYSTEM
A manual opening system
Enables smooth and easy one-handed opening of ZT's heavier blades, even without a spring or torsion bar
Uses ball bearings to enable the blade to glide out of the handle
The KVT opening system is a manual opening system that enables smooth, easy blade opening without the use of a spring or torsion bar to "assist" the blade out of the handle. Instead, the KVT system uses a series of ball bearings that surround the pivot point of certain folding knives. As a knife user pulls back on the flipper blade protrusion or pushes outward on the thumbstud, the ball bearings rotate so that the blade glides out of the handle then locks into place, ready for use.
Enables fast and easy one-handed opening
Ambidextrous—works for left- and right-handers
Both manual and assisted opening knives may have a flipper
