    My first. Went to the shop today expecting to leave with a 560. The size and steel lock bar made me hold this. The feel in hand put it in my pocket. Went from there to work and used it right away.

    I am in love.

    On sunday, my dad and I went to a gun and knife show for father's day, and I was able to get my hands on a ZT 560. I fell in love with it, it wasn't as big as I thought it would have been, which is good! After the 0562 comes out and I have one, I will be saving up for a 560 for sure! Now the choice of the 560, 560BW, or the 561!

    The more I look at them, the more I think I may get a 550 before I get a 560. I think the 560 is the sexiest of the bunch, but the 550 strikes me as a bit more brutish as a user.

    All of my interest in ZT is the Hinderer designs. I like the look of some Onion designed ZTs, but not in a way that compels me to own them. Honestly, I'd rather buy a BM 300 flipper or Triage than an Onion ZT.

    The 0566, most disappointing knife I have bought in the last 5 years.

    Hard to open (thanks speed safe), assisted open broken with in 2 weeks, 2 of 3 barrel spacers stripped from factory, SS not Ti, assisted open instead of KVT, not sharp at all from factory, and only available in black. Downsized 560, this is not.

    I would have happily paid $250 for the Ti and KVT instead of what we got.

    Replaced kicker spring, milled out spring pocket to reduce tension on spring, retapped spacers and installed new screws, built replacement scale in desert sand to more closely match my 0561, and spent almost 4 hours reprofiling the edge and giving it a proper sharpen (I do believe they burnt the edge when they sharpened it at the factory, very soft when initially sharpening, very hard under that soft mush) .

    After that rebuild, now it is an ok knife.

    But still waiting for the other shoe to drop and the spring break again...

    Sad to hear that... my 566 came perfect other than a little break in time to loosen the action some when flipping it open. I guess there's bound to be a lemon every now and again, sorry you had to get the lemon. Love the scale though.
