The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3" Harpoon Tanto with Black/Blue 3D textured G10 is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder in an EDC size. It features a tanto style blade with harpoon and integral flipper for easy opening when it matters most. As the smallest model in the Hinderer family, the XM-18 3" was designed to go where you do for day to day cutting tasks. Ease of opening and closing one-handed combined with a reliable lock system were targets that have been achieved with the XM-18. Brand new directly from the Hinderer Ranch.
The Blade: The three inch blade has been stonewashed to hide any blemishes that can occur during use and can be opened via the integral flipper or dual thumb studs/blade stops. Rick's own 17-4PH state-of-the-art pivot system creates silky smooth operation; however, a bit of wrist action may be needed for flipping as Hinderers often have a light detent.
The Handle: Full titanium frame lock and liner have a tumbled finish. Hardware and standoffs create one tough package while 3D texturing on the G-10 scale coupled with jimping create a solid grip. There is a bit of a choil to choke up on the blade for more detailed cutting tasks as well. This Hinderer XM-18 includes the famous Hinderer Lockbar Stabilizer and two-position titanium clip for tip up or down right hand carry.
As with all Hinderer Knives, the XM-18 is completely customizable from clip and screws to the lockbar stabilizer and pivot.
