It can easily be said that one of the most sought-after knives for any hardcore collector is Rick Hinderer’s legendary XM18. While it is a knife that launched his career to stardom and the XM18 has been a very popular knife design, it is near impossible to obtain a Hinderer design knife for a regular price. Therefore, Kai USA’s Zero Tolerance has teamed up with Rick to introduce the Zero Tolerance 0560 folding knife. Slightly larger than the original, this knife maintains the design of the original XM18, but with a few differences. The 0560’s blade steel is the ELMAX super steel, which holds an incredible edge and has a very high water corrosion resistance, meaning that this blade will last for a very long time. The knife’s handle is composed of two separate materials (G10 and titanium) to ensure a great balance between a lightweight design that ensures the best grip possible during any situation. While the knife strays away from Zero Tolerance’s traditional assisted opening format, the ball bearings around the pivot of the blade make it one of the easiest knives to open with a very smooth transition as it locks into place. Great for EDC or for the Hinderer fan, this is a great high quality knife that will not disappoint.
