The Rick Hinderer XM-18 is known the world over as one of the toughest tactical folders regardless of your mission. Rick Hinderer's focus when designing the XM-18 was a no nonsense tactical tool ready for the simplest cutting tasks to high speed low drag operations. The same focus was applied to the Slippy version of this outstanding knife model.


The Sheepsfoot version uses a 20CV stainless steel blade which as the name suggest uses a slip joint mechanism at the pivot which classes the blade as non-locking and therefore legal to carry within the UK.


The G10 handle scales are textured to allow a secure grip even in the wet. The 3D texture is designed to flow liquids (such as sweat, oils, etc.) away from your skin and into the valleys of the texture. The pocket clip can be transferred for tip-up or tip-down carry.


The thumb disc can be loosened with the tool provided and moved along the back of the blade to optimise one handed opening. A simple but extremely clever idea on a very practical, tough folding knife.

    Not worth the price

    Posted by pm42 on 20th Jul 2020

    I had plenty of problems with this knife: the choil was not thick enough and was almost cutting my finger.
    I had to dremel it.
    Then there was a lot of play once open even with the screw tightened. So I changed the washers for ticker and larger ones as the original are far too small.
    Now, it is a good knife, usable like my Liong Mah Traveller Carbon, Fox Suru or Kizer Zipslip.

    But for this price, I would expect it to be right out of the box like the areforementioned slipjoints.

    BTW, I also changed the clip to a deep-carry benchmade but this is a matter of preferences.

    Exceptional

    Posted by Alan on 22nd Mar 2019

    This knife surprised me, it got things right that I didn't even know were wrong, the half stop for instance, is only noticeable upon closing the knife, opening is a single smooth motion. The back spring strength is spot on for me, not compensating for a lack of locking mechanism, simply embraces that it's a slip joint. The ergonomics lend themselves well to the finger choil which also acts as a finger protect should the blade close on you. The removable thumb stud is a nice feature which,through my own stupidity, I lost, however Hinderer knives agreed to sell me a replacement at an extraordinarily reasonable price which speaks to their great customer service. The design is non-aggressive and lends itself well to use around the otherwise fearful, that said, I'm so happy with this I look forward to trying the slicer which I'll be saving for now.

    A long time waiting

    Posted by Ironman on 10th Dec 2017

    Superbly made UK friendly, every part of it is exquisitely machined and finished off. great size and great grip (not a fan of no choil UKs) even opens easy with out the adjutable stud slick!
    waited a long time for a Hinderer and I am not disapointed. get one whilst you can.
