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.

ELMAX
ELMAX
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.

Superb knife
I've been carrying around an Emerson Super CQC-7 for 7 years now; a very similar knife in many respects, such as price, handle and blade size and a titanium lock. I just recently purchased this 0560 BW, and the quality is on a whole other level, it is easily the best pocket knife I've ever held for many reasons. This knife just exudes quality in all the right ways. The lockup is super tight, there is no blade play in any direction. I was worried about titanium on steel in this frame lock, as with the CQC-7; the lock wears away. These come with a steel lock liner which is a great addition, and will keep the frame lock in tact. For the brief amount of time I've had this blade, the Elmax steel is very sharp and is holding its edge very well so far. The ergonomics are extremely good on this knife, much better than the CQC-7 I'm comparing this to. It just feels very good to hold, and it stays secure in traditional or upside down positions. I've seen that some people have trouble with the thumb studs on this knife, but I imagine it's because they are trying to apply pressure to the blade at a 90 degree angle. If you apply pressure to the thumb stud at about 170 degree angle, it's actuates no problem, and is a viable actuating mechanism apart from the flipper action. My eye was never really caught on Zero Tolerance knives, but the fact that this is a Hinderer Design made me look, and it truly is a beautiful knife. I would recommend this blade to anyone. There's no real reason to not love this blade if you held it in your hand. If you've never really been a fan of ZT knives, this one will change your opinion without a doubt, it's an extremely nice knife.

Definitely a user's knife
I've had this knife for several months now. I dislike when people write reviews the same day they receive the knife. First impressions since it was my first zt is that it's no joke & when they say built like a tank they mean it. Solid lock up, blade centering, ergonomics, everything. Still to this day I enjoy it as the day I bought it. The ELMAX is great but could be a pain for beginner sharpeners. I got the bw as my brother got the plain. I mention this as one of my two complaints is that the liner on the g10 side isnt blackwashed. Didn't notice it at first but since I did that's all I notice. Just wished they would've matched the color. Second complaint is the assist. I removed the spring and love it 10 times more. It's still just as smooth and the thumb studs aren't useless. I love being able to use the studs or the flipper. Excellent choice for a smaller edc than the 560.love the deep carry pocket clip except a screw on mine was stuck after bending the clip so I had to use a pair of needle nose to get it out.

Get one
EDC needed an upgrade. "Built like a tank" is no gimmick, mine is perfect. From the centering when closed, to the grinds, and the lock-up, this thing is solid. Open frame with spacers means I'll need a new pocket for my keys but, who cares? Fine factory edge that is tougher than you'd expect. (Thanks to Elmax). I can't wait for my next ZT, and Knife Center ships crazy fast with free shipping over $95! I'll be getting blades here for a long time.
