ZT0562CF: Model 0562CF
Zero Tolerance Knives

The cousin of the 0562, this ZT features the same special Rick Hinderer flat-ground "slicer" grind that provides both slicing efficiency and a tough point, but on a Böhler M390 powdered steel blade.

With a high chromium and vanadium content, M390 offers good wear resistance with excellent corrosion resistance. This powdered metallurgy stainless steel takes a razor edge and holds it well. It can also be polished to a mirror finish and is very tough.

The 0562CF's handle has a carbon fiber front scale and stonewashed titanium back. For secure lock up during use, ZT uses a frame lock with hardened steel lockbar inserts and lockbar stabilization.

The knife opens with a flipper and moves out of the handle on our smooth KVT ball-bearing opening system. A washer with caged ball bearings surrounds the pivot and makes opening the knife nearly frictionless; just pull back on the flipper and add a roll of the wrist and the 0562CF is ready for action.

The unique pocketclip is reversible (left/right) and enables extra-deep carry in the pocket.

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.

ZT 0562 CF is a star
ZT hit a home run with this one. An absolutely beautiful piece. Quality workmanship. Knife seems like it should cost hundreds more.

My New Favorite Knife!
Pre-Ordered since Mid-March, I finally got this about 2 weeks ago. All I can say is... WOW! Definitely worth the wait. Absolutely THE SMOOTHEST flipper I have ever used. Blade is sharp, and the 2-tone finish looks great. The knife is surprisingly thin. In fact that was the first thing I noticed picking it up for the first time. Carbon fiber scale looks and feels great. Overall ZT/Hinderer knocked it out of the park on this one. I can't imagine a nicer knife, even for significantly more $$$!

Another great offering from ZT
This should be one of my favorite knives...I just haven't found myself carrying it much yet which is why I only gave 4 stars. I may update to 5 once I get this in my pocket more. On the positive side, the action is perfection and the two tone blade is awesome. I also love the twill CF. The only bad thing is that the action is sooo perfect it makes my 801 seem stiff. This is the perfect combo of detent and smooth as glass opening. Fires hard but does not kill your thumb. In comparison, my 0561 is really smooth, but has almost no detent, and my 0801 fires hard, but has a very stiff (too stiff) detent and is not nearly as smooth even once past the detent point. Overall a great knife and one I will keep for sure.
