The cousin of the 0562, this ZT features the same special Rick Hinderer flat-ground "slicer" grind that provides both slicing efficiency and a tough point, but on a CPM-20CV powdered steel blade.
CPM-20CV has a high volume of vanadium carbides and a high amount of chromium. You get exceptional edge retention and outstanding corrosion resistance.
The 0562CF's handle has a carbon fiber front scale and stonewashed titanium back. For secure lock up during use, ZT uses a frame lock with hardened steel lockbar inserts and lockbar stabilization.
The knife opens with a flipper and moves out of the handle on Zt's smooth KVT ball-bearing opening system. A washer with caged ball bearings surrounds the pivot and makes opening the knife nearly frictionless; just pull back on the flipper and add a roll of the wrist and the 0562CF is ready for action.
The unique pocket clip is reversible (left/right) and enables extra-deep carry in the pocket.
Please note: the 0562CF was first made with Bohler M390, then CTS-204P; you may still find some of these blades in the marketplace. All current production is shipping with CPM-20CV.
