This Zero Tolerance 0562 features the same Rick Hinderer special "slicer" grind, but on a premium stainless steel blade. This design is lightweight so it rides in your pocket comfortably. This knife opens with a flipper and the ultra-smooth KVT ball-bearing opening system. To ensure secure use, it is built with a titanium frame lock with a lockbar stabilizer. The unique pocket clip is reversible and enables extra-deep carry.
Zero Tolerance has some of the tightest production standards on the market. Check out our selection of Zero Tolerance Folders for high-quality, pocket-friendly knives!
Great knife. This is the most money I've ever spent on a knife, but I like it because it is built like a tank. Ergonomics are good. Top-quality blade steel and I love the titanium handle scales. I expect to carry and use this for at least the next 20 years.
The 0562TI is simply outstanding. The flipper design is very crisp and the titanium scales add that finished elegance one expects from a ZT knife. This knife is on the large side and solidly built. It will hold up to whatever you send its way.
This is a really beautiful knife that also functions incredibly well. It’s definitely a time tested design. The only little minor thing that I would add to it would be a lanyard hole but that’s not worth knocking a star off for that. I just found out that this knife is being discontinued. It’s probably worth getting since there’s nothing quite like it out there. And it’s made in USA. What more could you ask for?
This ZT is a beautiful example of ZT's philosophy of overbuilding knives. It feels strong in the hand, and the CPM-20CV blade is an absolute beast. The titanium makes it feel lighter than it looks, but this knife is solid and tough as you could hope for.
I have this knife for about a year. It was a birthday gift from my wife. It's just a perfect piece for me, I can't think of a single thing I would like to change in it. Blade is phenomenal, I love titanium scales, clip is as deep as it gets and is ideal for EDC(no ZT branding outside). This knife however is on a bigger side, I carry it when I'm riding my bike, for other days I carry Quiet carry IQ from the same materials. If the size is a concern, this might be a bit too big. I have size 10 hands, and the grip for me is perfect, but I can see how for people with smaller hands it might be on a bigger side. Again, so far it's the best knife I have/saw/touched.
I am very happy with this knife. It's oner of my favorites in my collection. Solid, sharp, zero play in the blade. Opens solidly and fits my large hand very well. 5 stars.
Possibly my favorite folder. It is a tad heavy but for a hard use folder you can't ask for more.
Admittedly there was a little lock stick initially. But after just a couple days of fidget flipping and a little nano-oil applied it's like butter and 0 lock stick. On a side note about ZT. On my first day carrying the knife the clip got caught on my car seat and snapped off. I contacted them and they are replacing it (and have a list of other free parts for ZT owners) completely free. I mean I suppose maybe some would just expect that sort of thing because of the cost. But I just thought it was fantastic service and I really appreciate it. If you're on the fence just go for it.
I feel confident and strong when I deploy this excellent, over-built blade. It is heavy, yet fast and smooth! A lot of other options seem to never be available for purchase. I wanted the experience of a 'pocket tank' and I do not regret this purchase at all. I've lost interest in those other options. It influenced me to check out other ZT options!
This is a very well made and functional knife. I wear a size medium-large size glove and the handle ergonomics is great. For a large folding knife, the overall weight is very light. The KVT bearings are awesome and the blade snaps open with minimum effort. The deep carry clips are a a very nice touch. Only reason I didn't give 0562Ti five stars is b/c of the scales. Not too fond of the matte/stonewashed finish as my first impression was that it looked used.
Action was smooth out of the box, coming unlubricated. With a little knifepivotlube, this thing is absolutely drop shut with one exception. There isn't a detente ball ramp on this knife, which means that the lock-bar must be held out until you have that ball on the stock of the knife or it will hang. That being said the ball can be pushed past quite easily with a tiny bit of force, just stops it from being a complete finger guillotine with its BUTTER smooth caged ball bearings. Slicer grind means you get the benefits of thick beater stock close to the hand, with it thinning out well in the belly. 20cv is a great steel, which hasn't dulled on me enough for me to need to sharpen it yet with about 3 months of cutting up cardboard from my hardcore quarantine shopping sprees under the belt. Ergonomics are fantastic, knife does not move in your hand and the flipper acts as a very effective finger guard. Pocket clip disappears in the hand, carries fully deep and then some and mounts from the inside with a screw outside. Knife is light for the size and its solidity, lighter than the cf version, because of the heavy internal milling of the show side handle. I got mine for 220 on sale which feels like a steal, seems fair even at 280
Out of the box this knife would not open no matter how much force was applied single hand and both hands. BladeHQ handled the return efficiently with no problem, I will continue to buy from BladeHQ with confidence.
