The Zero Tolerance 0566BW by knifemaker Rick Hinderer is another outstanding example of a quality compact everyday carry knife that users and enthusiasts have come to expect of ZT Knives. The 0566BW model is a smaller version of the larger 0560/0561 models and also has assisted opening. This version is just like the ZT 0566, but with a BlackWash finish preferred by many in the knife community. By joining with Rick Hinderer, this American-made tool from Zero Tolerance Knives offers the performance of far more expensive EDC folding knives at a price point more users can afford.
The 3.25-inch drop point blade of the ZT0566BW is made from highly corrosion resistant CPM S35VN powdered steel with a BlackWash finish. S35VN is a high-end stainless steel that provides outstanding edge retention as well as toughness. Other benefits of using this type of steel for the blade that you will see include durability, wear resistance and ease of sharpening. The 0.156-inch thick flat grind gives it excellent sharpness for cutting while the drop point is great for thrusting. The 0566BW is a perfect knife for all the dirty jobs performed with an EDC.
At an overall length of 7.7 inches and a weight of 5.4 ounces, you will be able to utilize this knife to accomplish many tasks. You will find that the handle, made of a black textured G-10 composite front and a stainless steel back, provides the perfect balance between ergonomics, comfort and secure grip. It is 4.45 inches long and has a deep pocket carry clip utilizing the ZT quad-mounting system. Each ZT 0566BW can be positioned for tip-up, tip-down, right-handed or left-handed carry. The lanyard hole in the handle provides additional carry options.
This Zero Tolerance BlackWash knife handles well and can be deployed easy from your pocket with their assisted opening system. The superb spring assisted design with a flipper and thumb stud opener makes opening smoot hand fast. The flipper also serves as an integral index finger guard in the open position. A lock-bar stabilizer is incorporated into the frame lock knife design to prevent overextending the lock bar. The transition from the blade to the jimping is smooth and the rounded corners of the grip add to the ease and comfort of use.

The Zero Tolerance 0566BW is the perfectly sized quality compact knife for light and heavy users.
