Hinderer Knives XM-18 Knife 3.5" Tri-Way Pivot Spear Point S45VN Blade

Hinderer Knives XM-18 Knife 3.5" Tri-Way Pivot Spear Point S45VN Blade

SKU: E8724Y

Upgraded S45VN Blade and Tri-Way Pivot System (Hardware Included)


The XM-18 is known the world over as one of the toughest tactical folders regardless of your mission. Rick's focus when designing the XM-18 was a no nonsense tactical tool ready for the simplest cutting tasks to high speed low drag operations.


This XM-18 features CNC flat ground Spear Point blade. The over-sized choil permits choking up on the blade for more precise work. The blade locks up on a solid ¼ in diameter Thumb stud which is press fitted into the blade. This makes for a very strong lockup as there is no loosening of the thumb stud which can happen with two piece designs. The fact that the thumb stud locks up against the frame adds an incredible amount of strength to the sideways torque of the blade as the sideways stresses are being stopped by the whole handle side, thus relieving the stress that would normally be put on the pivot.


The blade is made of the upgraded S45VN steel, the successor to S35VN. in stonewashed finish. The handle is bronze anodised on the lock side and features black G-10 scales on the front.
