Hinderer XM-18 3.5" Bowie Working Finish 20CV Orange G10 Battle Blue Tri-Way Flipper 1073
The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3.5 is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder you can carry every day. It features an integral flipper tab and dual thumb studs for fast, easy operation when it matters most. As the medium-sized model in the Hinderer XM line, the XM-18 3.5 was designed to fit most hands comfortably and has a mid-size blade to handle almost any task. Easy, one-hand operation and a reliable lock system are the foundation of the XM series. This version comes with a Working Finish CPM-20CV Bowie blade, Battle Blue anodized titanium frame and Orange G10 scale.
Brand new directly from the Hinderer Knives, USA.
Gen 6 features: hardened steel lock face insert and Tri-Way Pivot detailed below.
Blade: The three and a half inch Bowie blade opens fast and smooth via the integral flipper or dual thumb studs/blade stops. The American CPM-20CV blade delivers top-end edge retention and corrosion resistance. Blasted and tumbled, the Working Finish blade is discreetly non-reflective and hides wear from use. Rick's Tri-Way pivot system creates silky smooth operation with your choice of bearings (installed) or nylon or bronze washers. The detent is dialed in for decisive flipper deployment.
Handle: Full titanium frame lock and liner are matching Battle Blue (anodized, blasted and tumbled) for a rugged, wear hiding finish with striking visual appeal. Satin Hardware and standoffs create one solid package while a 3D textured G10 scale coupled with strategically placed jimping provides a solid grip. A blade choil allows for a more forward grip for controlled work. Additional features include the Hinderer Lockbar Stabilizer, titanium clip insert and customizable modular design.
Carries via a reversible, right hand only, titanium pocket clip.
Tri-Way Pivot: An innovative design from Hinderer, the Tri-Way pivot has milled pockets in the blade and frame allowing for the use of ball bearing pivot washers (installed). Utilizing steel spacers to fill those pockets, you can also use nylon or bronze washers (included) to customize the action.
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.
