The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3" is a precision-crafted tactical folder featuring the innovative Tri-Way pivot system for user customizable operation. The smallest of the XM series the 3" is still plenty robust but more suited for everyday carry. This Skinner version comes with a Battle Black CPM-20CV blade, with matching frame and liner and black G10 scale.

Gen 6: features a hardened steel lock face insert and Tri-Way Pivot system detailed below.

Brand new, direct from Hinderer Knives, USA.

Blade: Riding smooth on the Tri-Way pivot system, the 20CV Skinner blade deploys via dual stepped thumb studs or index flipper tab. A forward finger choil and spine jimping provide excellent control for fine work with balanced durability and slicing performance delivered by the high saber grind with spine swedge. The tumbled "Battle Black" DLC is durable, discreet and hides wear from use.

Handle: The Battle Black finished titanium frame lock side is equipped with a hardened steel lock face for smooth operation and secure lockup for the life of the knife. A matching liner supports the textured G10 front scale, joined via barrel spacers in an easy to maintain open back construction. The scale and strategically placed jimping offer solid traction on this ergonomically designed handle. All titanium hardware and an oval lanyard hole rounds out the construction.

Carries via a reversible, right hand only, titanium pocket clip.

CPM 20CV: CPM 20CV is a highly wear-resistant, powder metallurgy stainless steel, analogous to Bohler M390 and CTS-204P, and offers some of the best corrosion resistance and wear resistance in combination with a relative ease of sharpening. These properties along with a working hardness in the low 60s HRC make 20CV a prime choice among custom and production makers.

Tri-Way Pivot: The newest innovation from Rick Hinderer, the Tri-Way pivot features milled pockets in the blade and frame allowing for the use of ball bearing pivot washers (installed) or, utilizing steel spacers to fill those pockets, you can use either of the included sets of nylon or bronze washers to customize the action and operation of your knife.
