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.

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.
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.

ZT 0566 Hinderer
Purchased the knife yesterday, took it back today due to the AO. Just too difficult to open with a lot of force required to get the blade moving. I wanted to exchange the knife for another 0566, but found two other units required the same hard force to open, so kept what I had. This is only issue with the knife. Physically it is superbly put together, great glad design, and the blade centers perfectly. Lock is great, it's all great but the opening. My thumb and finger is still sore after several 100 times of trying to get it to open better. The shop I bought it from tried adding a drop of oil and doing an adjustment, to no avail. Too bad about the opening - for the money I thought it would be as good opening as my 350 ZT which is excellent in form, fit, materials and overall constructing. Wish the 566 could be the same.

Cons: None
I actually just got the knife from one of my very best friends as a birthday present, I haven't actually used the knife yet, so I realistically have no business writing a review, but I'm comfortable making the blind statement, that this will be the best knife I've ever owned, it looks amazing, and feels great in the hand!!!!! -Luke R.
