Hinderer Slicer, CPM-20CV / Stonewash & Satin
CPM-20CV + CARBON FIBER IN A RIGHT-SIZED ZT
The cousin of the 0562, this ZT features the same special Rick Hinderer flat-ground “slicer” grind that provides both slicing efficiency and a tough point, but on a Crucible CPM-20CV powdered steel blade. With a high chromium and vanadium content, CPM-20CV offers good wear resistance with excellent corrosion resistance. This powdered metallurgy stainless steel takes a razor edge and holds it well. It can also be polished to a mirror finish and is very tough. The 0562CF’s handle has a carbon fiber front scale and stonewashed titanium back. For secure lock up during use, ZT uses a frame lock with hardened steel lockbar inserts and lockbar stabilization. The knife opens with a flipper and moves out of the handle on ZT’s 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 0562CF is ready for action. The unique pocket clip is reversible (left/right) and enables extra-deep carry in the pocket.
