The coz of the 0562, this ZT0562CF features the very same unique Rick Hinderer flat-ground “slicer” grind that provides both slicing performance and a hard point, but on a Carpenter CTS-204P powdered steel blade. With a high chromium, tungsten and manganese content, CTS-204P provides excellent wear resistance with exceptional edge retention. This powdered metallurgy stainless steel takes a razor edge and holds it well. It can also be polished to a mirror finish and is very tough.

The knife opens with a flipper and vacates the deal with on our smooth KVT ball-bearing opening system. A washer with caged ball bearings surrounds the pivot and makes opening the knife almost smooth; just pull back on the flipper and add a roll of the wrist and the 0562CF is ready for action. The unique pocketclip is reversible (left/right) and makes it possible for extra-deep bring in the pocket. Made in the USA.
