ZT Hinderer 0566 Assisted Opening Knife G-10 

Zero Tolerance Knives and Rick Hinderer team up again to create the new Zero Tolerance 0566. More compact than its larger brothers, the 0560 and 0561, the new 0566 is built for pure performance in an EDC-perfect size.

On the performance end, the blade is S35VN powdered steel. S35VN offers toughness and resistance to edge chipping with no loss of wear resistance. The formula also enables the 0566’s blade to be sharpened to hair-popping levels. For a secure grip, the front scale is textured G-10. The back is all stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. The 0566 opens quickly and easily with our assisted opening system.

The 0566 offers Zero Tolerance's quad-mounting system so users can choose tip-up/tip-down, left- or right-handed carry. And because it's a deep-carry clip, the knife will sit comfortably deep in the pocket.

For Rick Hinderer style in an easy-carry size, the new 0566 fits the bill.

Not Tbag At All

Gave myself a little gift to replace my older Kershaw that I had to leave behind.

The speed safe open takes a bit more pressure compared to my old one. That familiarity has meant during the transition I have to put a little conscious effort into opening it. The muscle memory is getting there, but if you are like me there is a break in period as you adjust.

It's stupid sharp and I haven't yet abused it enough to see how long the edge will hold. You can read the steel reports on the different types. In my case, I didn't think the improvement of other blades really justified the cost. Some of the newer allows seem to have some manufacturer learning curves. I don't doubt if there was an issue it would be taken care of, but this seems like a safe/cost effective bet.

I do enjoy my new EDC, but it loves me a bit too much. Getting used to this one has given me a few little bloody kisses. Stupid lovable knife.

A Tank of a Knife

-The assist is quick and authoritative.
-The edge is sharp.
-The frame lock and SpeedSafe Assist reminded me of all those Ken Onion Leek and Chive knives I have been carrying for the past 13 yrs.

-It is a chunky, clunky knife. It's hard to understand how beastly this thing is until you have it in hand.
-The flipper is HUGE.
-Though the action of the SpeedSafe Assist is strong and powerful, it takes quite a bit of effort to push that flipper down. You really have to be intentional with it.
-It is really weird that half the handle is G-10 and the other half is Stainless. It feels weird in-hand to have 2 different materials on opposite sides of the handle.
-It cut me.

Great knife

I have lots of knives. I have several ZT knives. On the down side... This knife doesn't have a KVT bearing pivot, it's not titanium and it's a little heavy for it's somewhat small size. On the positive side... It's an assisted (it's got a spring) knife.. So you don't really notice the lack of bearing pivot. It uses Elmax steel, which is great (also used on the ZT 560/561). It's a Rick Hinderer design... Which is one of my favorites. It's just a great knife all-around.
