Hinderer Knives XM series of folders allow for user configuration changes. The Hinderer titanium scales replace both the G10 and the titanium liner on a standard XM-18 making your XM-18 handle a full titanium powerhouse! You still use the same hardware, just unscrew the frame screws and pivot, remove your G10 scale and titanium liner, and put it back together. This super cool variation features a Balltle black DLC finish as the base, with multi-step engraved and anodized Hinderer horse head logo and satin brushed finished flat for a killer two-tone satin look!

Notes on DLC Finishes: This is a heads up for those not up to speed with DLC coatings (or pretty much any any coating or finish). Let us break it down for ya: you probably have been fortunate enough at one point in time get to paint the interior of your house. Lucky for you, the decided hue is some really special and unique color not available in the pre-made buckets. You do some math to figure out how much each room needs, so you can get enough in one go. But why do all those maths? Why not just get a bit, and if you run out get more? Well, because with any paint that needs to be made up, each batch can vary slightly. Every batch might be close to one another, but not exact. Furthermore, say you have the same color, but get part made up in an eggshell sheen, and some in a satin sheen. The colors might be about the same, but they are gonna look WAY different. Suddenly, your interior walls ain't matching up perfectly. Well, this same exact logic applies to coatings! Batch to batch, the colors of the coating may or may not match exactly! Furthermore, depending on the finish and prep of the metal prior to the coating, there will be variation on sheen and shade for the same color finish. Now, for the walls in your house, it might be a big deal if they don't match perfectly. Fortunately, having each of your hard use tools and the parts on them matching up perfectly to one another isn't so big a deal! If it is... well maybe you should be matching up your Barbie collection's outfits instead.

Notes About Tumbled Finishes: This is a crash course for those that are either unaware of the nature of tumbled finishes, or can't stand it when their shoes and purse don't match. So get this: when a maker chooses to do a tumbled or stonewashed finish, the core of the process is comprised of throwing those precious parts in a big bowl of rocks and then shaking said bowl a bunch! Surprisingly, what results are parts that sort of look like, well, they were thrown in a bowl of rocks and shook up. Basically, they tumble all around, and get beat up by the rocks. Even more crazy is, that if you shake up one part with a set of rocks, and then, like a while later, throw a different part in with those same or similar rocks, the two parts won't look the same! Some might look more beat up, some might look less beat up. INSANITY! Unfortunately, science has not yet perfected a way to make randomly shaking parts up in a bowl of rocks result in parts that look all uniform, matching, or boring cookie cutter copies of each other. For now, you will have to settle for a unique, one of a kind finished product that might not perfectly match any other part or knife out there! If this scares you, then feel free to grab your purse and RUN (if you can in those heels).

About the Gen IV XM-18: The difference between the Gen III and Gen IV is one thing: the stop pin location. This is the pin that stops the blade when in the closed position. This change was done to facilitate some different blade profiles in the future. There is no structural difference and there are no other changes. All scales and hardware from the Gen III will work EXCEPT for SOME of the titanium scales. The recent titanium scales are offered in both Gen III and Gen IV compatible.
