The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3.5" Gen 6 Sheepsfoot with OD Green 3D textured G10 is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder. It features a Sheepsfoot 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 6 features a hardened steel lock face insert and Tri-Way Pivot detailed below.

Brand new directly from the Hinderer Ranch.

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 bright Stonewash finish. Rick's own Tri-Way pivot system creates silky smooth operation with your choice of bearings, nylon or bronze washers. The detent is dialed in for decisive flipper deployment.

Handle:  Full titanium frame lock and liner have a matching Stonewash Finish that is rugged and hides wear well while still having a handsome, bright finish. Satin Hardware and standoffs create one solid package while 3D texturing on the 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 titanium clip and insert for tip up or down right hand carry.

The XM-18 is completely customizable with accessory clips, scales and hardware.

CPM 20CV: CPM 20CV is a highly wear resistant, powder metallurgy stainless tool steel, an analog to Bohler's M390, 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.
