- verified customerThis is my 4th Hinderer XM-18, the first 3 I didn't keep because the detents were too weak and the lockup was too early (the was a personal preference of mine, they functioned fine). This new one has a much stronger detent which really improves the flipping action, and the lock up is about 40% which I prefer over a super early lock up. As usual the fit and finish is excellent and I love the Bowie style blade, it has a very sharp point. The blade is very thick and solid (as Hinderer's are know for their hard use construction), but is ground thin enough toward the edge that it cuts well. The ergonomics are outstanding and fits my hand perfectly, the jumping is in all the right places. Over all this is an excellent, rugged, overbuilt folder. I highly recommend this knife.
