    Thanks for the review, Hawkeye. I have been looking at these for a while but never really liked the scales. It makes the knife look fat and round...Until I saw this birdseye view pic. Thanks for the pics sbakker
    Now I'm starting to want one. Can't afford a Hinderer, but this is a Hinderer design:)

    I'd say grab it if you can afford it. I paid $200 for mine and no regrets. It's a great, solid knife.

    Ach man if you can get it for $199 do it. I got mine for $211 and I thought that was a great price.

    You can get them from Kershaw guy for $195. You have to contact him for that price though. He was selling blemished models for $175 and he ran out but he is still offering non-blemished models for a fantastic price. Plus he is a great guy from what I hear.

    I held a 0550 and I wanted to like it, but the lack of flipper and the strong detent made the one that I held really hard to open with the thumb studs.

    That is one reason why I went with the 0561.

    Me too! I pre-ordered the 0566 as soon as it was announced for sale! It will be my first ZT for exactly the reasons you state...price point and EDC size! :)
