The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3.5" Gen IV Spanto Blade with Translucent 3D textured G10 is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder. It features a spear/tanto combo Spanto blade with integral flipper for easy opening when it matters most. As the medium sized model in the Hinderer family, the XM-18 3.5 was designed to fit most hands comfortably and has a reasonable blade size to handle most any task. 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 and a half inch blade has a durable stonewashed broken-in finish 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 Battle Bronze finish. This finish utilizes Hinderer's stonewashing technique with a pop of Bronze anodization. It's one tough battle-tested finish that will last. Hardware and standoffs create a solid package while 3D texturing on the G-10 scale coupled with jimping all around 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 Battle Bronze titanium clip for tip up or down right hand carry.
As with all Hinderer Knives, the XM-18 is completely customizable from clip and standoffs to the lockbar stabilizer and pivot.
