Now the ZT-Hinderer 0560 comes in our great-looking blackwashed finish. Like a battle-tested tool or a favorite pair of well-worn jeans, the blackwashed 0560BW has that already-broken-in look. To make a blackwashed knife, knife components are Tungsten DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) coated, then tumbled to produce the distinctive ZT blackwash finish.
The 0560BW retains its ELMAX® powdered steel for the extreme edge retention, high strength, and toughness a hard-use knife demands. High wear resistance in a steel usually means low corrosion resistance, but not with ELMAX. With this advanced steel, you get both properties—which makes it an excellent blade steel. The ELMAX blade rolls out of the handle on the KVT ball-bearing system. Just use the built-in flipper to open the knife quickly and easily.
The handle is basic black 3-D machined G-10 on the front, and lightweight, strong 3-D machined titanium on the back. The titanium frame lock, with lockbar stabilizer, ensures a rock-solid lockup every time. To ensure this big knife carries comfortably, ZT has machined pockets in the titanium handle. And to top it all off, the 0560BW is equipped with ZT's deep-carry pocketclip and Quad-mount system for tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.
