9/25/14 The Zero Tolerance 0562 is in stock!
The much anticipated Zero Tolerance 0562 is making its way to the masses and we couldn't be happier. This knife debuted at the 2014 Shot Show with and started making waves immediately. The KAI booth was surrounded all 4 days we were there with enthusiasts trying to get a picture of the knife being handled by its designer, Rick Hinderer (Hinderer Knives).
Rick and KAI have done some pretty special things with their collaborations as of late and this one seemingly is another home run. We all know variety is the spice of life and the team at KAI have spiced it up. The ZT 0562 comes in 2 different versions, a standard G-10 scale and Elmax steel while the upgraded model (0562CF) features a carbon fiber front scale with an upgraded blade steel (M390).
One of the best things about the ZT 0562 is the blade, dubbed the Hinderer "Slicer" grind, the 3.5" drop point blade is made of Elmax steel and comes in a stonewash finish. The Zt 0562Cf model comes with an upgraded Bohler M390 powdered steel. It comes with integrated flipper for fast one handed deployment as well as thumb stud for those who do not like flippers.
The 0562 blade rolls out on the KVT ball bearing system which ZT lovers will know all to well.
The folks at Zero Tolerance love their hard use knives and the ZT 0562 measures up. The Hinderer folder has a G-10 textured front scale with a titanium stonewash framelock that measures 4.75" and is perfect for EDC use. The blade locks up with a hardened steel lockbar insert and lockbar stabilizer so overextension is not a problem.
The 0562 comes with a reversible pocket clip for deep carry. The 562 rides nice in the pocket and is black coated for color contrast.
