Zero Tolerance 0562TI Hinderer Knife Titanium (3.5")
Zero Tolerance ZT 0562TI Hinderer Frame Lock Knife Titanium (3.5" Satin 20CV)
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.

As other reviews have said this knife comes in s35vn steel which is, in my opinion very close to s30v. The bearing system that this knife uses is very smooth. The only complaint that I have with this knife is the pocket clip. The clip is already showing wear after only owning this knife for a week (this is working in a restaurant). Compare that to my spyderco pm2 which has been in the same environment for roughly a year to a year and a half and shows alittle less wear. This is why i took off 1 star. Overall a great knife
