Zero Tolerance and Rick Hinderer have been collaborating in order to make Rick's incredibly popular knives more available to a wider audience. The ZT 0560/0561 is a case in point. Based on Rick’s crave-worthy XM-18, this ZT is one completely amazing knife. First, the blade. It’s pure ELMAX® powdered steel for the extreme edge retention, high strength, and toughness a hard-use knife demands. It rolls out of the handle on the KVT ball-bearing system so deployment is rapid and it’s ready when you need it. The handle is 3-D machined G-10 on the front, and equally 3-D machined titanium on the back. A framelock with lockbar stabilizer ensures a rocksolid lockup every time. To ensure this big bear of a knife carries at a comfortable weight, ZT has skeletonized the liner and machined pockets in the titanium handle and framelock. And to top it all off, the 0560/0561 is equipped with ZT’s new deep-carry pocketclip.
