Zero Tolerance Hinderer Slicer
Zero Tolerance and Rick Hinderer teamed up to build the Hinderer Slicer with its exclusive Hinderer "slicer" grind. The ELMAX powdered steel blade with flat-ground “slicer” grind provides slicing efficiency and a tough point. ELMAX is a third-generation powdered steel with virtually no nonmetallic inclusions. This means it offers a uniform distribution of carbides for high wear and corrosion resistance. Zero Tolerance sharpens it to a hair-popping edge, and the ELMAX ensures it holds that edge for a long time, even under hard use. The knife opens with a flipper and moves out of the handle on a smooth KVT ball-bearing opening system. A washer with caged-ball bearings surrounds the pivot and makes opening the knife nearly frictionless; just pull back on the flipper, add a roll of the wrist, and it is ready for action. The handle has a G-10 textured scale in front and a stonewashed titanium back. The unique pocket clip is reversible and enables extra deep carry in the pocket.

- 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
- The KVT opening system is a manual opening system that enables smooth, easy blade opening without the use of a spring or torsion bar to assist the blade out of the handle
- As a knife user pulls back on the flipper blade protrusion or pushes outward on the thumbstud, the ball bearings rotate so that the blade glides out of the handle then locks into place, ready for use
- Ambidextrous flipper is part of the blade that protrudes at the knife spine when the knife is closed. When opened, the protrusion forms part of the finger guard
- G-10 handle 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 titanium
- 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
- Pocket clip can be changed to accommodate left-hand or right-hand use
