The XM-18 is the combination of 25 years of knife making craftsmanship combined with modern CAD design and CNC technology. The result is a hard use folder that performs like a fixed blade. Built in Rick Hinderer's shop in small numbers to ensure quality. Framelock side features the patented Hinderer Lockbar Stabilizer (LBS) which prevents over torquing of the lockbar which can happen under stress (especially when using gloves). The scales on the XM-18 can be changed by the user to give a different look.
In the mid 1980’s Rick Hinderer began his knifemaking journey creating art knives in a small 14′ x 18′ turkey coop with none of the modern amenities, like heat or running water. But as time went by, Rick began to draw on his real world experience as a firefighter/EMT and he made the switch from art knives to the tactical scene in which he is so deeply entrenched now. Rick’s design philosophy is deeply rooted in his experience using his knives as part of his first responder tools. Yet his background in designing art knives—combined with his real world experience as a first responder gives him an unusual perspective and enables him to design hard-use tactical folders that are both aesthetically pleasing and extremely comfortable in the hand. Rick’s designs are engineered to go the distance when it counts the most, whether when life is on the line, or you just need a good cutting tool.
