Zero Tolerance Knives

Zero Tolerance and Rick Hinderer teamed up to build the 0562 with its exclusive Hinderer "slicer" grind.

The ELMAX powdered steel blade with flat-ground "slicer" grind provides both slicing efficiency and a tough point. ELMAX is a third-generation powdered steel with virtually no nonmetallic inclusions. This means it offers an extremely uniform distribution of carbides for high wear and corrosion resistance. Zero Tolerance sharpens it to a hair popping edge and the ELMAX ensures it holds that edge for a long time, even under hard use.

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 0562 is ready for action.

The handle has a G-10 textured scale in front and a stonewashed titanium back. For secure lock up during use, ZT uses a frame lock with hardened steel lockbar inserts and lockbar stabilization so the lock won't overextend.

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

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.
Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
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.

great edc
I have been edc'n this blade for 2-3 months and absolutely love it. I have always carried a spydi because I never notice them in my pocket. These zt blades look so big and bulky in the pictures that I was reluctant to give them a try, but this 562 carries just as well as my spydercos. It is definitely heavier but it has a huge slab of titanium on it. The only time I really notice the extra weight is in my hand though. Also I am very impressed with this elmax steel. I beat the hell out of my edc and normally carry a full flat ground blade that I keep hair popping sharp. The beefy blade on this 562 says sharp longer than my S30V and s35 blades and is easier to put a hair popping edge on it as well. By the way I love the deep carry pocket clip that is mounted the way brous does it. Not sure who's idea it was, but I like it.
