ZT0562CF: 0562CF Hinderer Flipper
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 CPM-20CV powdered steel blade.

CPM-20CV has a high volume of vanadium carbides and a high amount of chromium. You get exceptional edge retention and outstanding corrosion resistance.

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 Zt's 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 pocket clip is reversible (left/right) and enables extra-deep carry in the pocket.

Please note: the 0562CF was first made with Bohler M390, then CTS-204P; you may still find some of these blades in the marketplace. All current production is shipping with CPM-20CV.

First ZT
Just received this one from KC. This is my first ZT and I am blown away with how much I like this knife. The fit and finish are even better than I was expecting after reading reviews and watching YouTube evals. Was a little worried about the size and weight for pocket carry but turned out to be a non-issue. A very comfortable carry. And the flipper action...oh my it is smooth. Going to get the Elmax and S35 versions next. Must haves for me.

Loving this
I generally like to carry smaller blades, so my first reaction to the 0562CF was that it's too big for me to be an EDC knife. However, after handling this knife for a while, it just grew on me to the point that I really do like it. The ergonomics are so well considered. It fits in my hand perfectly with no hot spots that I notice. The deep carry clip is an awesome design, one of the best I've seen, and somehow it doesn't feel huge in my pocket. I won't say it disappears, but it's rides really well. The blade deploys effortlessly every time, and provides some seriously addicting flipper action. I love the way it closes, safely resting on your thumbnail so you can re-adjust and allow the blade to fold (easily) back into itself. If you have work to do, this knife is a serious tool. It begs to be used, not just sit in a drawer or safe. While the beauty of the CF lets you know you are handling a high end piece, the fit and finish and weight tell you this is a knife made to be put to a task. Blade shape is spot on, and I'm sure the CPM-20CV will hold the edge well. The lockup is super secure with a classic Hinderer design that should give you confidence that this blade ain't going anywhere when it's open. Tight! My only negative might be the weight, but it's a nit-picky thing to say because it kinda feels like it SHOULD weigh what it weighs. It's proportional. This isn't a knife you'd want to carry around the office. It might scare someone who doesn't know about knives, but if you're looking for a beautiful 3.5" blade in an awesome package, the 0562CF is a keeper, and I hope it will be part of my collection for a long time.
