The 2014 Shot Show was anything but ordinary and if you like outdoor weapons and gear, then this is your unicorn. My very first stop was the KAI tent because I knew Kershaw (New logo, Ruby Flipper, Emerson Collaboration) and Zero Tolerance (Emerson, Hinderer) were having big debuts and the anticipation was killing me. They didn't disappoint.
Note: The following Info and images are taken from KAI and eKNIVES.
As i walked in the booth there stood Rick Hinderer talking and showing his new line of ZT knives to the masses. His 3 new models with Zero Tolerance are the ZT 0180, ZT 0562CF (carbon fiber) and ZT0562 G-10 model.
The [button link="http://www.eknives.com/product/zero-tolerance-0562-hinderer-g-10-elmax-stonewash-plain-zt0562/" color="orange"]ZT 0562[/button] is a Rick hinderer flipper with an Elmax powdered steel drop point blade (3.5"). Like many of the Hinderer blade grinds this one features his "slicer" grind. The ZT 0562 rolls out on a KVT ball bearing system and locks up with a steel lock bar stabilizer inserted frame lock. The G-10 black handle measures 4.8" in length, perfect EDC size. Deep carry reversible pocket clip included. MSRP $250
Cousin to the 0562 is the[button link="http://www.eknives.com/product/zero-tolerance-0562cf-carbon-fiber-hinderer-stonewash-plain-zt0562cf/" color="orange"] ZT 0562CF[/button] (carbon fiber) which features a carbon fiber front handle, stonewashed titanium back and Bohler M390 powdered steel drop point blade along with a lock bar inserted stabilizer frame lock and reversible pocket clip.

A smaller fixed blade (9.2" overall but rock solid for tough hard use as with any ZT knife. It features G-10 scales and a Vanadis 4 extra powdered metallurgical steel blade (4.2") tungsten DLC coated for strength and wear resistance. The ZT 0180 field tac is a tough as nails no-nonsense fixed blade.MSRP $275
If the Hinderer collaborations were not intriguing enough, ZT decided to pair up with one of the best in the biz Ernest Emerson! Ernie designed the ZT 0620 (carbon fiber & G-10 version) a folder with his patented WAVE shaped pocket opening feature. The ZT 0620 comes in a G-10 and Carbon Fiber 0620CF model.

The front handle is G-10 with a bead blasted titanium back for toughness and style. It measures 4.9" closed and locks up with a hardened steel inserted frame lock. Emerson knives patented WAVE opening feature allows for one handed opening when drawn out of the pocket. The ZT0620 has a thumb disc and it rides in the pocket with a black reversible pocket clip.
