The 0566CF may look classy with its new carbon fiber front scale, but don’t let the good looks fool you. The 0566CF, designed by Rick Hinderer, offers the same beast-like, ZT-tough build and precision features as the 0566; it just looks gentlemanly doing it.
The blade is high-performance ELMAX® powdered steel. With almost no impurities in the steel, the 0566CF’s blade can be sharpened to hair-popping levels with excellent edge retention.
SpeedSafe® assisted opening makes it quick and easy to open, while a steel frame lock with lockbar stabilizer provides secure lockup. Finally, ZT’s quad-mount, deep-carry pocketclip means you can carry this handsome beast any way you want.
Earlier production runs of this knife were made with ELMAX stainless steel blades. Current production uses CPM S35VN. Which blade steel your knife has depends on when it was made.

I had a small QC
I had a small QC issue with my first knife, but Adept stepped up with some terrific customer service. The new knife is in perfect condition, looks beautiful and and feels great in the hand. Strong opening and good lockup. If I could take off half a star, it would be because depending on how you are holding the knife, if you have your fingers too much on the lockbar when you try to flick it, it can be very difficult to open. After getting used to it, it’s not really an issue, but I was puzzled at first.
