0560 Plain Edge

Based on Rick's crave-worthy XM-18, the new Zero Tolerance 0560 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. High wear resistance in a steel usually means low corrosion resistance. Not with ELMAX. With this advanced steel, you get both properties—which makes it an excellent blade steel. The ELMAX blade rolls out of the handle on the KVT ball-bearing system. With KVT, a series of ball bearings surround the pivot point so blade deployment is rapid, incredibly smooth, and your blade is ready when you need it.

The handle is 3-D machined G-10 on the front, and lightweight, strong 3-D machined titanium on the back. The titanium frame lock, with lockbar stabilizer, ensures a rock-solid 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 frame lock, too. And to top it all off, the 0560 is equipped with ZT's new deep-carry pocketclip and Quad-mount system for tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed carry. The 0560 features a black front handle scale.

The best ZT that I've owned May 4, 2012
Reviewer: B Milton from benton, IL United States  
The 0560 is my newest EDC & I have to say that Kershaw got almost everything right about this knife. For a large knife it feels very compact & the weight is not an issue for me. Love the 3D texture on both the front & back. The clip works well.

My only issue (and this may not bother everyone) is the super sharp jimping, especially the grooves located above the pivot. Three or four flips was all it took for me to get out the Dremel to melt & blend the edge on the titanium side of the grip. Spent about 45 minutes on this as I wanted to take off a little & feel the result before taking off more. After the melt & blend the jimping is still secure but no longer sharp ... ZT may want to look into doing this during production.  

Otherwise I love the knife. The KVT is amazing & offers fast deployment once the blade moves past the ball detent. Lock up is tight & unlocking is easy. This is the nicest factory folder I've ever owned & that includes quite a few others. Well worth the money.
