This Rick Hinderer XM-18 3" Spearpoint Flipper Model has textured OD Green G-10 handle scales and is an ideal EDC Hinderer Knife. This is the newest generation with the tri-way pivot feature. The tri-way pivot allows you to operate the knife using a bearing pivot, phosphor bronze bushing or a Teflon bushing. It initially comes configured for bearing pivot for a very fast, smooth opening action.
The stainless steel CPM 20CV steel blade has a stonewashed finish and hollow grinds. 60-61 HRC hardness means this blade can take whatever you need to cut and tackle that cut. The blade is a spearpoint blade shape, with dual titanium thumb studs as well as a flipper for easy right or left-hand opening. The flipper also serves as an index finger guard in the open position. The thumb rest of the blade spine features jimping for a positive and secure grip while open.
The handle of the XM-18 3" spearpoint is constructed of solid stone washed titanium and textured OD Green G-10 handle scales. The knife features a frame lock design for a bank vault secure lock up when open. The frame has a hardened steel lock-bar insert that increases the lock-life. The frame lock has a Rick Hinderer designed lock bar stabilizer to prevent overextension of the frame lock. Lanyard hole located at the rear of the handle. Stonewashed titanium pocket clip can be mounted for tip up or down carry. KnifeArt.com is proud to offer the XM-18 3" recurve model as an authorized dealer.
