The FXM (Fixed XM) 3.5 inch Coyote DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated knife from Rick Hinderer Knives is based on the XM-18 3.5 folding knife design. It's thick, pointy and tough. This new FXM has Rick's famous Spanto blade and Battleship Gray G10 handle scales. It's a great size for a wide array of cutting tasks built with precision in the USA.
The Blade: The 3.5 inch spanto (spear/tanto combo)-styled blade has a strong, non-reflective coyote DLC coat finish crafted from premium S35VN stainless steel. The Spanto offers the strength of a tanto combined with the utility of a spear point. The FXM is full tang construction with integral guard and forward choil. It has a slight upper swedge grind with aggressively notched thumb ramp for controlled cutting.
The Handle: The scales are the same 3D machined G10 you've come to know and love from the folding models for superior grip and runoff of fluids. These are bolted to the tang for an ergonomic hold. There are more machined notches on the bottom of the handle where your last two fingers rest and on the top near the end of the handle where your lower palm rests.
The Sheath: Form fitted Kydex with a bolt-on large Tek-Lok mounting system.
The FXM 3.5 is stout, yet lightweight for everyday carry. It is an excellent Fixed interpretation of the iconic XM-18 folder and makes a great companion.
