Zero Tolerance Hinderer G-10 Folder
Zero Tolerance Knives and Rick Hinderer team up again to create the Hinderer G-10 Folder. More compact than its larger brothers, the Hinderer G-10 Folder is built for pure performance in a perfect every day carry size. On the performance end, the blade is pure ELMAX powdered steel. With almost no impurities in the steel, the blade can be sharpened to hair-popping levels—and also offers excellent edge retention, strength and toughness. For a secure grip, the front scale is textured G-10. The back is all stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. Zero Tolerance's quad-mounting system lets users choose tip-up/tip-down, left- or right-handed carry. And because it's a deep-carry clip, the knife will sit comfortably deep in the pocket. For Rick Hinderer style in an easy-carry size, the Hinderer G-10 Folder fits the bill.

- ELMAX is a third-generation powdered steel, a high chromium-vanadium-molybdenum alloyed steel
- This powdered steel is incredibly clean, has virtually no nonmetallic inclusions and offers a uniform distribution of carbide
- ELMAX polishes beautifully and can be hardened to 60+ on the Rockwell Hardness Scale
- SpeedSafe is a patented system that assists the user to smoothly open the knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or pull back on the blade protrusion
- The heart of this assisted opening system is its torsion bar. Closed, the torsion bar helps prevent the knife from being opened by gravity. It creates a bias toward the closed position
- After the blade is out of the handle, the torsion bar moves along its half-moon track and takes over. The blade opens smoothly and locks into position, ready for use
- Ambidextrou flipper protrudes at the knife spine when the knife is closed. When opened the protrusion forms part of the finger guard
- G-10 material is an epoxy-filled woven glass fiber that is extremely stable and remains unaffected by temperature changes
- In a frame lock knife, the knife handle consists of two plates of material on either side of the blade. When the knife is opened, the metal side of the frame butts up against the backend of the blade and prevents the blade from closing
- To ensure a secure lock up, one the plates is stainless steel
- Frame locks are manufactured so that the locking side of the frame is angled toward the interior of the knife to create a bias toward the locked position. Both the blade and lockbar are precisely angled so they fit together for a secure lockup
- Quad-mount system provides four pre-drilled areas (the top and bottom of each side of the handle) so the position of the pocket clip can be changed to the preference of the user
