I was just able to score a Hinderer XM-18, 3 1/2 inch flipper. My first impression was WOW what a knife. GREAT design and the baby fits like it was custom made for my hand!!!

The puppy is built like a tank throughout. I love the thick liners, overtravel stop, and the flipper acts as a great guard for my hand. The knife is very balanced in my hand and I can't wait to do some cutting with this knife. Great blasted finish on the blade. I can't say enough good things about this knife and it's great design.

The clip is a very nice design as well. I've clipped it in dress pants, a suit jacket, cargo shorts, and jeans. I never felt like it was loose in any of these carry situations.

The knife opens like butter with either the flipper or the thumb studs. I ran the blade over my UF rods on my sharpmaker. She cuts like a laser now.

Love the Spanto Blade as well. I wasn't sure how I was going to like it from the pictures that I've seen, but boy do I like it. This bad boy is just screaming USE ME!

I EDC a CRK regular sebenza daily, but I can see the Hinderer getting alot of EDC as well. Heck, I might be carrying both (I'm a big guy, LOL).

Awesome design, flawless function, and product perfection!

Here's a couple of pictures of my XM-18 (sorry for poor quality as this was taken with my EVO phone) with my favorite scales, POND SCUM. I also have bought a OD green and a smooth surface black scales to mix it up abit, but love the pond scum scales.

POND SCUM ROCKS!!!!
