Hinderer Knives XM-18 3.5" Red NON Flipper Tri-Way 20CV Spear Point Stonewashed
The Hinderer Knives XM-18 3.5" Non Flipper Gen V Spear Point is a precision-crafted hard-use tactical folder. It features a classic spear point blade with dual thumb studs 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. Easy, single-handed operation combined with a reliable lock system were targets that have been achieved with the XM-18. This version comes with fully Stonewashed finish 20CV Spear Point blade and frame and Red G10 handle scale.
Updated features include a hardened steel lock face insert and Tri-way pivot system detailed below.
Brand new directly from the Hinderer Ranch.
Blade: The three and a half inch blade is stonewashed and can be opened via dual thumb studs/blade stops. Rick's own Tri-Way pivot system allows for full customization of the operation of your knife with either bearings or nylon or bronze washers based on user preference. Whatever you choose, operation is fast and smooth via the dual thumb studs. The 20CV Spear Point blade profile sports a mid-height saber grind for a solid balance of durability and cutting performance.
Handle: Full titanium frame lock and liner have a worn-in Stonewashed finish. This finish offers a nice clean look that hides wear and can be customized with anodization. Hardware and standoffs create one tough package while 3D texturing on the G10 front scale coupled with jimping all around create a solid grip. There is a bit of a choil to choke up on the blade for more detailed cutting tasks as well. The XM-18 includes the iconic Hinderer Lockbar Stabilizer for added security.
Carries via a reversible, right-hand only titanium pocket clip.
The XM-18 is fully customizable with clips, scales, standoffs and other hardware from Hinderer Knives.
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.
