This Hinderer XM-18 3.5" Vintage Series model features a black coated O1 steel blade and a Smooth walnut wood handle with a green/bronze titanium frame. The Rick Hinderer XM-18 3.5" Vintage is a remarkable version of the famous Hinderer XM18. For this special version Hinderer became inspired by his love for firearms. The wood that is used for the handle of weapons, combined with the classic tool steel for the blade. A Vintage edition of an incredibly modern pocket knife. A top-quality work knife. The finish is simply perfect; grip wherever you might need it and curved wherever possible. As such it feels amazing in hand. When opened the flipper will keep your hands away from the edge. As such you never have to worry about slipping during the more demanding cutting tasks. The skinner blade is made from O1 tool steel. Not stainless, but tough and easy to sharpen. With the right heat treatment it is a great type of steel to work with. In between the flipper and the edge you can find a finger choil. With it you have more control over the blade during the more detailed tasks. The stunning finish on the blade is striking. After all, the stonewashed finish has been enhanced with irregular and shiny highlights. These ensure that traces of use are hardly noticeable. In addition, it looks amazing! You easily open the XM18 with the (double) thumb studs, or with the flipper. With a small wrist movement you can easily open the blade. The knife has been enhanced with ball bearings which make sure the knife moves smoothly. However, it also comes with teflon and phosphor bronze washers. This is the Hinderer Tri-Way pivot system. When opened a solid framelock neatly keeps the blade in place. A characterizing detail here is the lockbar stabilizer. This is a round disc on the side of the titanium handle. It ensures that you cannot overstretch the lock. In addition, these Gen6 edition has been enhanced with a steel lockbar insert. You can always carry the XM-18 with you with the titanium pocket clip. This tip-down pocket clip is mounted to the right side, but with the Philips screwdriver you can easily turn it into a tip-up pocket clip. This Vintage edition is enhanced with a unique serial number, starting with a V. This one is V1422. Comes with original box and extra hardware. Excellent condition.

About the Maker

Hinderer, Rick
Hinderer, Rick

In the mid 1980’s Rick Hinderer began his knife making journey making art knives in a small 14′ x 18′ turkey coop with none of the modern amenities, like heat or running water! Art knives are a far cry from the tactical scene which Rick is so deeply entrenched in now. Over the years his meticulous attention to knife design and knife making, coupled with his real world experience as a Fire Fighter / EMT sets him apart from the rest. Rick’s design philosophy is deeply rooted in his experience with using his knives as part of his first responder tools. That catalyst of change from art knives to hard use tactical was after Rick joined the rescue dive team. He really began to look at knives and designs more as hard use tactical tools than works of art. Rick began changing over from old world knife making techniques to modern CNC precision manufacturing. With the combination of designing art knives, and his real world experience as a first responder, this unusual perspective allows him to design hard use tactical folders that are not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but extremely comfortable in the hand. All of Rick’s products are engineered to go the distance when it counts the most whether it be when life is on the line, or you just need a good cutting tool.
