Kershaw Zero Tolerance Hinderer 0562-Titanium
Item #: KE-ZT562TI
The popular 0562 from Zero Tolerance and Rick Hinderer just got a new titanium handle.
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 our 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 to go to work. 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 pocketclip, 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.
The 3-5/8” drop point blade is made from CPM 20CV stainless and has a hardness of 60-62 Rc. The closed length is 4-7/8". Weighs 5.4 oz. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested Retail $350.00.
Zero Tolerance Knives
Zero Tolerance knives has but one motto: We have zero tolerance for anything less than the best. Zero Tolerance knives are made in the U.S.A. and designed for hard use. Often abbreviated ZT knives, these knives have premium steels and tough handle materials. They are typically overbuilt and designed to withstand a lot of abuse. These knives are very popular with military, law enforcement, and first responders such as firefighters and emergency medical personnel. Recently ZT has expanded their line from just tactical knives, to include spring assisted knives, everyday carry folders, and gentlemen's carbon fiber folding knives. Many use ball bearing features and open very smoothly (just be careful if you try to take one apart!). All ZTs are built in Tualatin, Oregon USA. Zero Tolerance is a brand of KAI USA Ltd., who also owns Kershaw Knives.
