Hinderer Slicer, S35VN / Stonewash
S35VN BLADE, HINDERER-ZT STYLE & TOUGHNESS
Zero Tolerance and Rick Hinderer teamed up to build the 0562 with its exclusive Hinderer “slicer” grind. 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. The knife opens with a flipper and moves out of the handle on their smooth KVT ball-bearing opening system. A washer with caged ball bearings surrounds the pivot and makes opening the knife nearly frictionless; just pull back on the flipper and add a roll of the wrist and the 0562 is ready for action. The handle has a G-10 textured scale in front and a stonewashed titanium back. 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. The unique pocket clip is reversible (left/right) and enables extra-deep carry in the pocket.
