About the Hinderer XM-18 3.5″ Skinny Sheepsfoot Tri-Way Stonewash FDE G10
The Gen 6 “Skinny” Version of the XM-18 is slimmed down from the standard for lighter weight, slimmer profile and enhanced cutting performance. It was designed to fit most hands comfortably and has a reasonable blade size to handle most any task. This 3.5″ model has a blade thickness of 0.136″and a handle thickness of 0.450″, making it a perfect, hard-use design for EDC. The oversized choil permits choking up on the blade for more precise work. Hinderer’s Gen 6 enhances the standard formula with the addition of the Tri-Way Pivot System. The system allows the use of bearings, phosphor bronze washers, or teflon washers in the pivot depending on preference.
