Hinderer XM-18 3" Spearpoint

Small but Effective

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. And the XM-18 3" is the little brother to the original XM-18, which has a 3.5" blade and a heftier build.

Aside from the compact 3" blade length, the XM-18 3" also brings the closed length down from 4.75” to 4.125” with an overall weight of only 102 grams – which makes the entire package much more pocketable and easy to carry.

While small in pocket, the XM-18 3" is no slouch in hand. The 20CNV spearpoint blade is complemented by a 6AL4V titanium frame lock with G-10 scale and titanium liner for enhanced durability.  And adhering to Rick's 'high-speed, low-drag' philosophy, the XM-18 3" features the equally robust Tri-Way pivot that leverages on ball bearings for a supremely smooth flipping action.

The result is a no-nonsense, high-performance cutter that is much easy and lighter to carry on a day-to-day basis. From the simplest cutting tasks to tougher and more demanding operations, the Hinderer XM-18 3" Spearpoint is more than well-equipped to take it all on with style and effortless ease.
