In addition to the titanium handle, the 0562TI offers a premium CPM-20CV steel blade with Rick's exclusive Hinderer "slicer" grind. This blade grind gives you both slicing efficiency and a tough point. The 20CV powdered steel blade provides high wear resistance and corrosion resistance—enabling a hair-popping edge that lasts for a long time, even under hard use. For good looks, ZT gives the blade a stonewashed finish on the flats and a machine satin finish on the grinds.
The knife opens with a flipper and moves out of the handle on ZT's smooth KVT ball-bearing opening system. KVT's "caged" ball bearings surround the pivot and make opening the knife nearly frictionless; just pull back on the flipper and add a roll of the wrist and the 0562TI is ready for action. 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. Machined pockets on the inside of the front handle scale relieve weight and make the big 0526TI easy to carry.
The unique pocket clip, which attaches to the inside of the handle rather than the outside, is reversible (left/right) and enables extra-deep carry in the pocket. ZT uses matte black hardware to accent the steel-and-titanium look, which makes the 0562TI exceptionally handsome.

Zero Tolerance Knives ZT0562TI
Bought alot of knives here and finally decided to give the brand a go. This is now one of my favourite knives and will not be the last ZT.
Extremely happy with another ZT knife joining my collection. Excellent service and price from Martin, why shop for knives anywhere else? Definitely a knife to be proud of.
I watched a lot of reviews on this knife, but wasn't sure if I would really like it. But, I finally decided to give it a chance. It is now simply one of my favorite EDC knives (and I have Spydercos, Benchmades, Kizers, Hobacks and even Medfords, to name a few brands). This is a solid built titanium framelock, which is very much on par with even original Hinderer folders. I cannot stop fidgetting with this thing, the action is buttery smooth, and the clicking sounds/acoustics is simply addicting. All I can say is that I've waited too long to purchase this beauty, I should have taken the plunge a loooong time ago. Best ZT knife in my humble opinion!
