Hinderer Knives XM-18 3.5" GEN 5 Wharncliffe Stonewash 20CV Translucent G10
The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3.5" Gen 5 Wharncliffe with Translucent 3D textured G10 is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder. It features a wicked Wharny style blade and 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.
The Gen 5 features a hardened steel lock face insert.
Brand new directly from the Hinderer Ranch.
The Blade: The three and a half inch blade opens fast and smooth via the integral flipper or dual thumb studs/blade stops. The CPM 20CV blade delivers optimum edge retention and corrosion resistance and sports Hinderer's heavy Stonewashed finish. Rick's own 17-4PH state-of-the-art pivot system creates silky smooth operation; the moderate detent requires a decisive action for fast deployment.
The Handle: Full titanium frame lock and liner have a matching Stonewash Finish that is rugged and hides wear well while reducing reflectivity. Satin Hardware and standoffs create one solid package while 3D texturing on the Translucent G10 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 stonewashed titanium clip and insert 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.
