Description
ZT0566: ZT0566 Hinderer & ZT Collaboration
Zero Tolerance Knives
 
A more compact version of the ZT0560.

Zero Tolerance Knives and Rick Hinderer team up again to create the new Zero Tolerance 0566. More compact than its larger brothers, the 0560 and 0561, the new 0566 is built for pure performance in an EDC-perfect size.

On the performance end, the blade is pure ELMAX powdered steel. With almost no impurities in the steel, the 0566’s blade can be sharpened to hair-popping levels—and also offers excellent
edge retention, strength, and toughness. For a secure grip, the front scale is textured G-10. The back is all stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. The 0566 offers Zero Tolerance's quad-mounting system so users can choose tip-up/tip/down, left- or right-handed carry. And because it's a deep-carry clip, the knife will sit comfortably deep in the pocket.

For Rick Hinderer style in an easy-carry size, the new 0566 fits the bill.

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 Material, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Handle Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use
Cheap vs Expensive
I purchased the Kershaw cryo 1556ti first. I was impressed with it for the money. The 1556ti operates the way a flipper knife should. I can not say the same for the ZT 0566. The thumb stud is useless and the flipper is tough to use . Unlocking the blade is tough too. VERY DISAPPOINTED. RECALL ????

Troublesome opening
Waiting for the knife almost a year (pre-order) I was really happy and curious when I finaly got it. I already got bigger ZT 0560 and as many others I wished smaller „hinderer“. ZT 0566 is similar to original Hinderer’s XM folding knive. Cutting edge of this 3.25“ knife is the same length as XM 3,5“ while ZT 0566 is smaller. Looks great for EDC, feels good in hand, solid, stainless steell frame lock acceptable. sharpness surprisingly not as good as usually. First impression generally very good but after few days I put it away. The main reason is really annoying and TROUBLESOME OPENING BOTH WITH THE THUMB STUD AND FLIPPER. Much much tougher than original XM or ZT 0560. After four days of frequent use I found bruises on my thumb and index finger and opening was so painfull that I put the knife away. This is also reason why I give this knife only 2 stars. So pitty! Easier AO mechanism would make ZT 0560 excellent EDC knife. By the way, using thumb stud to open ZT 0550 is also difficult but not that much. And one more thing. Stainless back looks good – more hinderer :-) but textured G-10 would be better for a secure grip (similar to ZT 0350). So I like the knife but I cannot use it. If anyone know hot to simply solve the opoening problem I would like to know.

Zero Tolerance Hinderer 0566 Assisted
My first Zero Tolerance.The knife feels good in hand for it's size and has a very solid lockup. Opening can be difficult with the thumb studs, almost impossible with my knife, maybe because of the detent ball bearing combined with the Torsion Bar. Use of the flipper to open the knife was better but still alittle stiff. Blade Material and blade Sharpness is very good. Just use of the flipper to open the knife is ok for me or I can remove the Torsion Bar if I want to use the thumb studs.Maybe other Hinderer 0566 do not have this issue,it's something Zero Tolerance should look into. I will still EDC this knife.
