Hinderer Knives XM-18 Knife 3" Wharncliffe CPM-20CV Blade Battle Bronze Handle

Hinderer Knives XM-18 Knife 3" Wharncliffe CPM-20CV Blade Battle Bronze Handle

SKU: K2322Y

Upgraded Battle Bronze Factory Hardware And CPM-20CV Blade


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 a Wharncliffe CPM20-CV 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 CPM-20CV in working finish. The handle is battle bronze finish on the lock side with matching battle bronze hardware and features OD Green G-10 scales on the front.




  • New condition
  • Small pitting on the blade on the lockside, barely noicable
  • Comes with original box, spare pivot hardware and paperwork
