ZT0560BW: Model 0560BW - Hinderer Design
Zero Tolerance Knives
Based on Rick's crave-worthy XM-18, the Zero Tolerance 0560 is one completely amazing knife. First, the blade. It's pure ELMAX® powdered steel for the extreme edge retention, high strength, and toughness a hard-use knife demands. High wear resistance in a steel usually means low corrosion resistance. Not with ELMAX. With this advanced steel, you get both properties—which makes it an excellent blade steel. The ELMAX blade rolls out of the handle on the KVT ball-bearing system. With KVT, a series of ball bearings surround the pivot point so blade deployment is rapid, incredibly smooth, and your blade is ready when you need it.

The handle is 3-D machined G-10 on the front, and lightweight, strong 3-D machined titanium on the back. The titanium frame lock, with lockbar stabilizer, ensures a rock-solid lockup every time. To ensure this big bear of a knife carries at a comfortable weight, ZT has skeletonized the liner and machined pockets in the titanium handle and frame lock, too. And to top it all off, the 0560 is equipped with ZT's new deep-carry pocketclip and Quad-mount system for tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed carry. The 0560 features a black front handle scale.

Blackwash is the New Black

Zero Tolerance introduces blackwash. A blackwashed knife is like a battled-tested tool or a favorite pair of well-worn jeans. Blackwashing gives a ZT that already-broken-in look that's just plain cool. Although a few custom knifemakers have been using this process, Zero Tolerance is one of the first major manufacturers to use it on production knives. Knife components are Tungsten DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) coated, then tumbled to produce the distinctive ZT blackwash finish. Like any coating, it will wear eventually, but with blackwashing, who cares? Additional wear just adds to the blackwashed look.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
Extremely fine grained powered metal that strikes the balance between edge holding and corrosion resistance perfectly. Much more likely to get a rolled edge than have a chip develop.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
So far so good
I use this knife as my daily. At work, at home, and camping. At work I've used it to de-burr aluminium (it will do this with ease), strip wiring insulation, and cutt pneumatic lines for automation equipment. At home basically use it in place of kitchen knives (after a thorough cleaning) and vehicle repairs. It cuts paracord easily. I haven't sharpened it yet after a month of use, doesn't seem to need it yet. I keep the knife on a lanyard which also clips to my belt loop. At ~$240 I'm not interested in taking a chance on loosing it.

Awesome knife
It took me a long time to decide to buy a ZT knife simply because of their weight. I always loved lightweight knives. But this knife just feels right! It still carries easily because of its thin profile and for its size , it really feels light. I also abuse my knives so the blackwash finish is perfect for me. Its also the sharpest knife i've bought so far. The fit and finish is also superb, i can't find a single flaw. I will most likely buy some more ZT knives in the future! Love it!
