Details

The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3" Gen IV Spanto with Blue/Black 3D textured G10 is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder in an EDC friendly package. The S35VN blade sports a Spanto grind with the utility of a spear point and the tip strength of a Tanto. As the smallest model in the Hinderer XM family, the XM-18 3" was designed for ease of carry while still retaining a hard use construction. 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 is made from Black DLC finished CPM S35VN 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 Black DLC finish. It's one tough finish that will last through hard use. Hardware and standoffs create one solid package while 3D texturing on the G-10 scale coupled with jimping all around create a solid grip. There is also 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 Black titanium clip and insert for tip up or down right hand carry.

As with all Hinderer Knives, the XM-18 is completely customizable with a custom finish options in the following hardware: clips, standoffs, lockbar stabilizers, pivot and handle screws and handle nuts.
