Tougher than Tough
Designed by legendary custom knife maker, Rick Hinderer, the Hinderer XM-18 is as iconic as it gets and is often referred to as the quintessential heavy-duty tactical folder. If you're looking for tough – this is the OG no-nonsense tactical operator.
Spotting a 3.5" CPM20CV Bowie blade, the XM-18 Bowie blade profile features an aggressive clip point stance which excels at piercing and fine, precision work, while still retaining a generous belly for slicing duties. A rugged Battle Black finish enhances wear-resistance, while also imparting a more stealthy and discreet look.
Other unique Hinderer touches include lightweight G10 scales and the tri-way flipping system. It also includes a press-fitted thumb stub which eliminates any chances of it loosening over time and custom 17-4PH stainless steel pivots that are drilled and tapped for unmatched strength, smoothness, and accuracy.
Embodying Rick’s “high-speed, low-drag” philosophy of creating amazingly functional blades, the Hinderer XM-18 3.5" Bowie is the blade you can always rely on – because when the going gets tough, the tough reaches for his XM-18.
