Zero Tolerance and Rick Hinderer teamed up to build the new 0562 with its exclusive Hinderer “slicer” grind.
The S35VN steel blade with flat-ground “slicer” grind provides both slicing efficiency and a tough point. S35VN 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 S35VN 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 G10 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 pocketclip is reversible (left/right) and enables extra-deep carry in the pocket.
