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. Its 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 the KVT ball-bearing opening and a flipper makes the knife fast and easy to open.
The 0470s handle is titanium with an eye-catching marbled carbon fiber insert. Instead of a formal 'weave' as in standard carbon fiber sheets, for the '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 this one 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.
