Based on Rick Hinderers crave-worthy XM-18, the new ZT 0560 is one completely amazing knife. First, the blade... It's pure ELMAXÂ® 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 frame-lock with lock-bar 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. Features deep-carry pocket-clip with quad mounting system for tip-up, tip-down, left or right-handed carry.
