COMMENTS: We were able to handle this knife at the 2011 Blade Show in Atlanta, and it is amazing! This knife won the 'Collaboration of the Year' award at the Blade Show. So lets run down the features and details of the new Hinderer Design ZT 0560 Black /561 Flat Dark Earth:
The Zero Tolerance 0561 has an elmax powdered steel with a stonewashed blade - full 3D machined handle the integral lock side is titanium and the handle side is G-10 (in Flat Dark Earth and in Black). The ZT 0561 blade is made of Elmax, an extremely expensive blade steel that has a high vanadium content for high wear resistance with the stainless chromium content to prevent rust.
3D machined handle. The textured 3D machined handle provides optimal grip with
strenth and a reduced weight profile - the titanium has machined pockets in the interior to reduce weight.
Smooth KVT bearing system for extremely smooth opening
The integral lock carries the Hinderer lockbar stabilizer to prevent over extending the lock bar. Integral lock provides a rugged lock that is proven.
The Zero Tolerance 0561 also comes with a reversible deep carry pocket clip, lanyard hole, drop point blade shape, handle grooves for traction, index finger guard and ambidextrous thumb studs.

I do love this knife a lot. Perfect EDC knife, great geometry on the blade and comfortable in the hand. I wish it was sharper from the factory, but that's far from a deal breaker. Again, I love it. Some nano oil on the ball bearings and its crazy smooth.
