ZT 0562 Blue GrayThe Zero Tolerance Sprint Runs are back and better than ever with the ZT 0562 Blue Gray. ZT tells us this is the first of their new “Factory Special Series (FSS)” program which “renamed and revamped lineup of ZTs” that “can include a new color, blade steel, handle finish, and more.” All that means this is essentially a Sprint Run, and the new 0562BLGRY is an outstanding choice for the first in ZT’s new series. It’s everything you loved about the original but with an updated – and frankly gorgeous – blue carbon fiber front scale and a gray PVD coating. Honestly, it’s just a super pretty knife that’s bound to land in more than a few collector’s vaults.

ZT 0562 Blue GrayThe ZT 0562 Blue Grey features a gray PVD coated 3.5” 20CV drop point blade with a blade thickness of 0.156” and a Hinderer Slicer grind. The Slicer grind is essentially a deep hollow grind that is a bit higher on the shoulder and thins out near the tip. All this without sacrificing the tons of meat behind the edge. The result is a tough, slicey knife. As always, this knife is a manual flipper with KVT ball bearings and an overtravel stop that that has a solid, authoritative opening.

It’s a titanium framelock with a hardened steel lockbar insert and a lockbar stabilizer. The back handle is gray PVD coated and the front hand scale is blue twill carbon fiber. It has black hardware and an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip. This knife is 4.8” closed, 8.3” overall, and weighs 5.5 ounces.
