With its excellent cutting power and solid utility, Zero Tolerance’s 0456 Sinkevich Titanium Folder is the perfect tool to take with you on bold adventures.
Designed in collaboration with Belarusian custom knife maker Dmitry Sinkevich, the 0456 Sinkevich Titanium Folder offers the premium cutting power that ZT knives are known for and standout looks that are just waiting to be shown off. Based on Sinkevich’s popular custom knife The Pole, the 0456 features the 3D rayed handle contours and custom blade shape that defined the original design. The high-quality CTS-204P blade steel is wear and corrosion resistant and takes an exceptional edge. The blade steel features an attractive two-tone finish that’s stonewashed on the flats and satin on the grinds. The KVT ball-bearing opening system allows for a quick, easy blade release, while the titanium frame lock secures the blade in the open position during use. Deftly balancing a handsome appearance with solid utility, Zero Tolerance’s 0456 Sinkevich Titanium Folder is the perfect tool to take with you on any bold adventure.

CTS-204P Steel Blade
This powder metallurgy steel is highly wear and corrosion resistant thanks to high vanadium and chromium in the alloy. The powdered steel-making process results in fine-grained steel that is cleaner and tougher than conventionally produced steel. The blend is highly corrosion resistant and can be easily polished. Carpenter® made this steel specifically for high-performance applications, including custom knives.
KVT 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 Zero Tolerance folding knives. As a knife user pulls back on the flipper blade intrusion 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.
Titanium is a lightweight, corrosion-resistant metal with high tensile strength. ZT uses it as a handle material, a liner, a lockbar, or as part of a performance-enhancing coating.
In a frame lock knife, the knife handle – its “frame” – consists of two plates of material on either side of the blade. To ensure a secure lock up, one or both of these plates is usually metal. When the knife is opened, the metal side of the frame, the lockbar, butts up against the backend of the blade (the tang) and prevents the blade from closing. To close a frame lock knife, the user pushes the frame to the side, unblocking the blade, and folds the blade back into the handle. Like locking liner knives, frame locks are manufactured so that the locking side of the frame is angled toward the interior of the knife, creating a bias toward the locked position. Both the blade tang and the lockbar are precisely angled so they fit together for a secure, reliable lockup. The thickness of the frame material blocking the blade open makes the frame lock extremely sturdy.
