ZT0566: Hinderer 0566
Zero Tolerance Knives
 
Zero Tolerance Knives and Rick Hinderer team up again to create the Zero Tolerance 0566. More compact than its larger brothers, the 0560 and 0561, the 0566 is built for pure performance in an EDC-perfect size.

On the performance end, the blade is S35VN powdered steel. S35VN offers toughness and resistance to edge chipping with no loss of wear resistance. The formula also enables the 0566's blade to be sharpened to hair-popping levels. For a secure grip, the front scale is textured G10. The back is all stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. The 0566 opens quickly and easily with the assisted opening system.

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 0566 fits the bill.

Prefer 566 to 566cf
I have both the 566 and the 566cf, both with s35vn for blade steel. I use these for EDC, the usual sorts of tasks of cutting cardboard, occasional wood or rope, etc. Of the two variations, I prefer the 566 for three main reasons. 1. Maybe it is just my copies, but the assisted opening on the 566 is not nearly as tight as that on the 566cf. With the 566cf, I can open the blade 3-5 times, but it is so tight that after that it gets painful for my finger. It is so bad that I de-assisted the 566cf (removed the torsion bar), which has worked out much better - even though the knife wasn't really designed to be a manual opener. With the 566 there is no pain, not even after opening the knife 15-20 times. I had thought I would need to de-assist the 566, but deployment is excellent as is, so I decided not to. 2. I like the slightly rough texture of the G10 scale on the 566 vs. the smooth surface of the carbon fiber scale on the 566cf. I get a better grip with the G10. 3. The carbon fiber scale of the 566cf looks nice and is smooth, which is ok in more dressy situations, but I find myself worrying about scratching the carbon fiber scale. And let's be serious, how often does a person need a knife like this when dressing up? For really using the knife every day I prefer the G10 scale of the 566 as I don't need to worry about it getting roughed up. Otherwise, I really like the s35vn steel, which holds an edge well and is easy to sharpen. I like the blade shape, which has a nice belly and also doesn't come across as aggressive as a lot of thinner blades. Lock-up is solid. It would be nice if the metal scales/frame were titanium and therefore lighter, but the steel gets the job done ok and isn't too heavy. Good fit and finish all the way around, well centered blade. All and all, a nice EDC for more demanding tasks, but still relatively compact.

Excellent knive. My second one, one for work and one for everything else. The sv 35 blade holds an edge better than any other material.

Great EDC
I keep reading all of these reviews about how difficult the flipper is to use....Really ? Both of mine are butter smooth for a knife In this price range. The thumb studs are meant more as a blade stop than an actual way of deploying the blade. I abuse one of mine daily at work, and the other, which is a very low serial number knife, sits in my safe. The lock is very solid and easy to use as well. I say this is a great knife for the price.
