Zero Tolerance: ZT0470 Sinkevich Flipper - Titanium & Marbled Carbon Fiber - CPM-20CV
This handsome new design from ZT and Dmitry Sinkevich begs to take pride of place in your collection. Not that the 0470 is a safe queen. Far from it. It’s a highly practical, easy-to-EDC design that handles a wide range of tasks and looks good doing it.
The blade is CPM 20CV high-chromium stainless steel. This powdered metallurgy tool steel has a high volume of vanadium carbides for exceptional wear resistance and a truly long-lasting edge. The highest level of chromium of any high-vanadium steel gives it excellent corrosion resistance as well. The two-tone, satin-and-stonewashed blade finish looks handsome, while our KVT ball-bearing opening and a flipper makes the knife fast and easy to open.
The 0470’s handle is titanium with an eye-catching marbled carbon fiber insert. Instead of a formal “weave” as in standard carbon fiber sheets, for our “marbled” insert, the carbon fibers are dropped randomly onto the plate. Then resin is added to secure the fibers and produce a smooth surface. ZT leaves ours with a matte finish for an intriguing and sophisticated look. A titanium clip and a black anodized-aluminum backspacer complete the look of this refined pocketknife.

I really like the size of this knife, a little more EDC friendly than an 0452 or 0562. Perfect centering and super smooth action like you'd expect from a ZT, even with the thinner blade stock than usual. The marbled carbon fiber is a nice change of pace and has a nice look and feel. There's nothing I'd change about this knife.
