Hinderer XM-18 3.5" Sheepsfoot

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" 20CV sheepsfoot blade, the Hinderer XM-18 3.5" is incredibly tough and takes on all cutting tasks with ease. The straight cutting-edge with its large belly allows it to excel at slicing and carving, and the false point makes it hard to 'stab' yourself', which is especially useful in rescue or emergency situations.

Other unique Hinderer touches include lightweight G10 scales and 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" is the blade you can always rely on – because when the going gets tough, the tough reaches for his XM-18.
