Great heavy use tactical XM-18 3" Harpoon folding knife from Rick Hinderer.
The Hinderer XM-18 3andquot; Harpoon flipper is an excellent edc knife for me. KnifeArt listened as I worked through my issues for my first flipper knife, making informative comments along the way. The result was I felt good about my decision and wonderful now that I have the knife. Really, the knife expert I spoke to could be a professional listener.
Bought this one as a gift for a friend. Great knife. The Spanto blade is what helped me make the decision for him. It's a tough, rugged blade that will definitely get use in the construction field.
What an awesome and beautiful knife! The fit and finish are excellent and I really like the overall design. I know many people like a tip-up carry, but it's nice to have the option for tip-down (there are pros and cons to each, IMHO). I also appreciate that the 3andquot; size is somewhat less intimidating than, say, my Strider SnG, or Chris Reeve Large Sebenza. Both are excellent knives in their own right and fun to carry, but sometimes I get worried glances from co-workers or family members when use one of those larger knives in their presence, so I appreciate the somewhat more less intimidating appearance of this Hinderer while still being a usable size for most tasks. That being said, I definitely hope to add a 3.5andquot; spanto to my collection as soon as I have the chance. My main caveat would be that the action is a little tight to easily andquot;flipandquot; and the detent is very strong, but I expect these to settle in with use. I also am compelled to mention, as always, that the service in general from everyone at Knife Art is exemplary. Thanks!
