The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3" is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder sized for discreet every day. Easy, one-hand operation and a reliable lock system are the foundation of the XM series. The XM-18 3" features an integral flipper tab and dual thumb studs for fast, easy operation in a compact platform that is comfortable for most users. This version comes with a Working Finish CPM-20CV Wharncliffe blade, Battle Blue titanium frame and translucent "Jade" green G10 scale.

Brand new, direct from Hinderer Knives.

Blade: Riding on the installed Tri-Way pivot bearings, the Wharncliffe blade opens fast and smooth via the integral flipper or dual thumb studs. A high saber grind delivers balanced performance and solid durability whatever the task, while a full forward choil provides optimal control. The blasted and tumbled Working Finish hides wear and is discreetly non-reflective in use.

Handle: Titanium frame and liner come in Battle Blue (anodized Working Finish) that hides wear with style while the textured G10 scale and jimping provide a secure grip. Equipped with a steel lock face insert, the integral frame lock has solid lockup and smooth operation for safe use. The Hinderer LockBar Stabilizer, titanium clip insert and hardware make this a fully customizable modular design.

Carries via a right-hand titanium pocket clip.

Tri-Way Pivot: The Tri-Way pivot features milled pockets in the blade and frame comes with smooth operating ball bearing pivot washers installed. By utilizing included steel spacers to fill those pockets, users can get a more classic feel with either nylon or bronze washers also included.

CPM-20CV: CPM-20CV (analog to M390 and CTS-204P) is a premium powder metallurgy (PM) stainless steel with high level edge retention and corrosion resistance. Relatively easy to sharpen, the coarse microstructure gives this steel lower toughness.
