Hinderer folders are easy to disassemble and change the configuration or make upgrades. Even the most careful of us can lose a screw or bugger up a washer. This Hinderer Knives parts kit contains 12 screws that fit the pocket clip or filler tab on most Hinderer folder models. There is also a total of 8 bronze phosphor washers (smaller for lock side, larger for liner side).
You spend a lot of money on your knives, don't just store them in some el cheapo case. Bill's Custom Cases are hand made in the USA by  a man who understands quality and what your knives deserve for storage. The Econo Case is perfect for storing your folders or watches or other valuables. These are the cases we use to ship knives to and from shows to keep them from damaged.
The 2 x 4.5 represents the approximate interior dimensions of the pouch and is perfect for small sized folders or a watch.

One of the coolest things about the Hinderer XM series of folders is that they are modular and the user can configure them to suit their likes. You can swap out your clip with this Holey version with hand done Antique finished stainless steel. Clip screws are NOT included. But, you can just re-use the screws you already have.

Compatibility:
  • XM-18 3 Inch
  • XM-18 3.5 inch
  • XM-24
  • Eklipse
  • XM Slippy

  • Half Track

The LM was designed at the request of the military community to be a last ditch tool that was light and small as to be easy to carry. The static kydex sheath is deliberately sized to fit in one column of MOLLE webbing. These are simple, no nonsense tools, Put it behind a mag pouch and just grab when needed. Affordable to all military personnel and also means there is less heartache if for some reason the tool needs to be used and left. This variation is ground from super thick ATS-34 and come with hollow paracord wrapped handles for increased grip and for backup cord. Comes with a simple kydex sheath.

Note: Each and every LM is ground by hand, so each one is unique. We group them in close sizes and shapes, but they do vary a little bit. Don't get worked up if yours is a little different, it will still stab real good!

That old saying about apples and trees fits pretty well in this situation. As you probably guessed it, Forrest Strider is the son of Mick Strider, and you can definitely see the influence in the design and execution of Forrest's UPNYA model! That Double Edged Pikal blade profile is just simply wicked! The blade is hand double hollow ground by Forrest with tip bevel and upper edge grind, and will serve great as a general used blade (this thing is gonna destroy boxes and will chop like a champ!) as well as a more defensive role. Plus, thanks to the .250 inch thick super tough tool steel, you will be ready for extreme heavy duty uses. Hand signed 'F. Strider' on the choil. The blade has black oxide finish and the knife has a paracord wrapped handle. The molded kydex sheath comes equipped with velcro loop but will accept most mounting hardware/clips, allowing flexible options on how to mount the knife. Removing the lower screw from the loop lets you wear the knife inside the waistband.

Note: These knives are not compatible with Monkey Edge FRAG Pattern handle scales.

Notes on Bronze: This is a disclaimer for all you folks who slept through high school chemistry class or somehow not aware of the nature of bronze. All metals will change colors and looks over time depending on use, environment etc. This is especially true with bronze. This means it may get a darker, may change colors with patina, or it may get shiny and polished where it is rubbed by another material (like say your pocket). Go to look at old bronze statues and notice how they are all different. Well there ya go: thatís bronze! If you want to keep your bronze all shiny and new you will have to keep cleaning it with any of the homegrown solutions you can find with an internet search. OR, you can accept that what makes bronze a cool material is that your piece will change over time and tell its own stories and truly become one of a kind.

The XM-18 Skinny 3.5 inch is just what it sounds like: a thinner version of the normal XM-18 3.5 inch. The Skinny blade is 0.140 inch thick, 0.025 inch thinner than a standard XM-18 3.5 inch blade (0.165 inch). Hinderer makes it all work by using a combination of standard XM-18 3.5 inch and 3 inch hardware, and some parts just for the Skinny. The whole package gives you the same hard use knife in a bit slimmer overall package. If you are looking to get some new parts to swap out to customize the Skinny, the part break down is:

  • Skinny Pivot Screw = B-2 Pivot Screw
  • Skinny Scale Screws = A-10 Scale Screws
  • Fatty Standoffs = Skinny Unique, coming soon
  • Fatty Handle Nuts = Skinny Unique, coming soon
  • Scale - Skinny Unique, coming soon

The Blade: The Hinderer Slicer blade profile is especially good at -you guessed it- slicing! The Slicer is similar to a spearpoint profile, but with a primary grind that sort of angles up towards the tip, resulting in a little bit thinner and "more slicey-like" tip. his one is finished with a stonewashed black DLC finish.

The Frame: Titanium frame and scale liner with stonewashed black DLC finish. G10 scale with XM texture..

Tri-Way Pivot System: Hinderer's new Tri-Way pivot system lets you configure your XM-18 further than ever before! The system lets the end-user configure their knife's pivot system to their own personal preference, with choice of bearing, teflon washers or bronze phosphor washers. Simply disassemble the knife*, and instal whichever option suits your needs!

Note: Disassembly of pivot is required to change pivot system. Hinderer Armorer Tool is recommended for the job. Remember, use the right tools, or feel like a fool! Last three pictures are for reference on the Tri-Way system and may not picture actual knife.

About the XM-18:The XM-18 is the combination of over 25 years of old world knife making craftsmanship combined with modern 3D design and CNC technology. The result is a folder that performs like a fixed blade that has become one of the benchmarks in the hard use folder category.

  • Framelock side features the patented Hinderer Lockbar Stabilizer (LBS) which prevents over torquing of the lockbar which can happen under stress (especially when using gloves).
  • The XM-18 series of folders are completely modular. Just about every part (including scale, screws, standoffs, pivot, clip, etc.) can be changed by the user to suit their tastes.
  • Pocket clip can be set for tip-up or tip-down carry.
  • Can be deployed using flipper tab or blade stud

Chris Reeve Knives: Sebenza 21 Small Inlay - Macassar Ebony Medford Knives Folder: Praetorian G Drop Point Tanto - Black PVD/Black Medford Knives: Praetorian G Drop Point Tanto - Stonewashed/OD Green Medford Knives Folder: Proxima - Blue Engraved/Tumbled
About this model: The inlaid Sebenzas offer a different look as well as a different feel in the hand. The inlay pieces provide more of a radius than the traditional flat sides of the Sebenza. They are fit into precision machined pockets on each sale and secured. This Sebenza 21 has Macassar ebony wood inlays. It has a nut brown main color with dark brown and black grains. Macassar ebony is an increasingly rare wood, favored for use for guitar fingerboards. It is only found in one region in Indonesia, and while not endangered it is difficult to find suitable trees to harvest, making it a very rare and sought after material. In addition, the flats of the frame have a satin polish while the rounds are bead blasted for a striking contrast look. The blade features tumbled flats and a satin finish on the grinds. The spacer and thumb stud are both gold anodized.
About the Sebenza: Since 1990 The Chris Reeve Sebenza (Zulu word for work) has set the standard for what is possible in a precision manufactured folding knife. Chris Reeve developed the Sebenza Integral Lock (commonly referred to as a frame lock) which is concept of a handle slab to be used as the lock bar for the blade resulting in exceptional strength for hard use. Never one to become complacent, Chris Reeve has consistently looked to improve the Sebenza in both materials and design. The current Sebenza 21 model represents the accumulation of more than 20 years of experience and user feedback. It is based on the Classic Sebenza with subtle improvements such as: The front of the handle now as a chamfer (beveled) angle making it easier to insert into a pocket or pouch. The lanyard hole in the frame has been replaced with an annodized lanyard pin in the frame.

The Praetorian has pretty much become the signature model for Medford Knives. The 'large and in charge' Praetorian can fill the role of a fixed blade. Its wide fuller (blade groove) allows easy ambidextrous one handed opening. The handle shape allows for a secure grip even when wearing gloves. The backspacer is actually extended a bit to allow it to serve as a glass breaker. If you gotta cut some S**T or break some S**T, the Praetorian will do it and beg for more.

The Frame: Black G10 scale side. Titanium lock side in tumbled finish. Machined skeletonized titanium pocket clip in a tumbled/brushed finish. Extended glass breaker backspacer of tempered D2.

The Blade: Double hollow hand ground drop point tanto profile with black PVD finish.

Note: Serial number may vary from picture (if applicable).
The Proxima is one of the newest models from Medford and it hits a great blend of big enough for hard use and easy enough to EDC. The medium/large (for a Medford) folder is built like a tank, and is ready for anything you can throw at it. Featuring a long, hand double hollow ground spearpoint profile with harpoon upper swedge blade, the Proxima will perform as an excellent general purpose blade. Large flipper makes easy flip deployment and serves as a guard to keep your hand riding up on the knife, and the blade fuller grooves allow for more traditional opening methods left or right handed. Jimping on the blade spine gives extra traction and better grip for finer work. The all Ti frame melts into your hand and has step-milled detailing to contour the frame some and add some extra grip. Everything is kept in place with a machined pocket clip.

The Frame: Full titanium frame with blue anodized, tumbled finish and engraved presentation side. The presentation has a flowing engraving on the frame that looks great and has a subtle texture to it. Machined titanium pocket clip with tumbled finish.
The Blade: Double hollow hand ground spearpoint with harpoon profile with upper swedge and bright tumbled finish.
Duane Dwyer BBN-M (SNG) Recurve Bowie - SM-100 (NiTiNOL)/Carbon Fiber Starlingear Leather Cavalry Bag Satchel - Black Textured Mick Strider Custom XL Wharncliffe Two Tone Magma Texture

Duane Dwyer BBN-M (SNG) Recurve Bowie - SM-100 (NiTiNOL)/Carbon Fiber Starlingear Leather Cavalry Bag Satchel - Black Textured Mick Strider Custom XL Wharncliffe Two Tone Magma Texture

About the BBN-M: Basically, Duane's BBN series is like a SNG with a "bobtail" end. So, it is familiar as the SNG we all know and love, and yet has an entirely new feel. As you can see from the picture below of the BBN-M on top of a SNG, not a ton of material has been actually removed. However, that tiny dimensional change makes the knife feel smaller in the hand. Reverse grip is also enhanced. While in your pocket, it is easier to get your hand in that pocket to get at your other stuff.

The Blade: Stunning hand double hollow ground recurve bowie grind from SM-100! No jimping grooves on spine for clean look.

The Frame: Twill carbon fiber non-lock side with US Flag engraving! Titanium lock side with satin black PVD finish and subtle radial engraved texture. This knife feels incredible in hand. All upgraded titanium hardware (pivot, screws, etc.) thermally colored. Both side have been ball milled giving both increased grip and looks that kill. Pocket clip can be configured for either left or right side carry.

Note: Last 3 pictures are for comparison and picture a different knife.

History of SM-100 Material: Here is the quick (caveman version) rundown: Naval Ordinance Labs discovered the advantages of nickel titanium alloy in the 60's. However, it was extremely difficult and expensive to produce. It kind of languished for the better part of 30 years with various attempts at production, but none could overcome the extreme technical and financial challenges to produce a viable commercial product. Around 2008, Crucible Research with the assistance of Duane Dwyer came up with NiTiNOL 60 - Nickel Titanium Naval Ordinance Laboratory with the 60 indicating that it is 60% nickel 40% titanium by weight. Crucible underwent some re-structuring and Eric Bono then Crucible's director of engineering, went on to form Summit Materials. With their state of the art production capabilities and Duane Dwyer as a SME (subject matter expert), they have 'cracked the code' of getting nickel titanium production suitable for the cutlery industry. This is no small feat as the titanium is extremely reactive and the ratio of the two metals has to be exact.

Benefits of SM-100 Material: OK, history is great, but what makes this stuff so awesome?

Corrosion proof - SM-100 is completely non-ferrous (meaning zero iron). It cannot rust. It does not know how. This does not mean rust resistant, it means corrosion proof as defined by NASA.
Non magnetic - While this does not mean much to most folks, those in the ordinance world sure appreciate it.
Edge Retention - SM-100 can be hardened to >60 Rockwell. In addition, this hardness goes all the way through the material (you can mill off 10 thou and test each layer). In the past, you could get titanium sharp, but it would lose its edge quickly. Now, with SM-100 you essentially get a hardinable titanium.
Lightweight: SM-100 is almost 20% lighter than most steels per given size.
Toughness: Due to its high Modell number (measure of wear resistance) and its elasticity, SM-100 is extremely resistant to shock damage. So, while being rust proof, longer lasting, and lighter, SM-100 also is ready for true hard use.

Another handcrafted in the USA masterpiece from Starlingear. This is one of Ryk Maverick's 'passion projects'. He came across a vintage US Cavalry bag and would not rest until he could have one built Starlingear style! Of course, being a S-Gear product, you know there are ZERO shortcuts. Ryk sought out and hand selected the leather hides for the project looking for leather that had the most character. Each piece is meticulously hand built in Starlingear's Portland OR shop. All the details: the stitching, the hand aged hardware, everything makes this bag look and feel like it has "been there done that". To add just a subtle bit of S-Gear attitude, there is a silver S-Gear logo badge on the front of the bag and S-Gear imprinted in the leather. Cool black textured leather version. Nope, it ain't cheap. But, then again, this hand built piece of craftsmanship will last longer than you will! Load it up with your gear, sling it over your shoulder with the strap, and take on the world!

This XL has full of MSC hand made mojo and ready so serve you for life and be handed down to your kids (well if they are worthy). This one has some extra bite thanks to the serrated section of that killer blade!

The Blade: We don't think we've EVER seen Mick ground out a Wharncliffe XL before Mick did up a couple for USN GX! Wicked wharnie grind with upper swedge makes for one nasty blade. This one's even partially serrated, somethin' we've never seen before! Combine that with the contrast of Mick's new texture on the flats with those satin grinds, and you have some hand crafted MSC magic. About that texture: Mick has been using some crazy, secret, 'Manhattan Project' machine that not only can texture the metal, but also can actually impregnate other metals onto the surface. It's super hard to capture in pictures as it it changes with the light. However, the blade flats are textured with copper deposits. This texture is even on the top of the spine and jimping.

The Frame: Science or magic? Hell if we know! However, Mick's Manhattan Project strikes again on the frame where almost the entire frame has been hand textured. The flats of the frame have been given a 'magma' treatment where copper has been 'melted' on them. Not only does it have a super cool steampunk type vibe to it, but the texture feels GREAT in the hand while not being aggressive. Mick gave this one his Magic anodized finish for some multi-color goodness, that mixed with the Manhattan Project really changes and pops in the light. The edges of the frame and bevels are finished with a brighter satin orange peel finish that pops nicely. Notice the clip is Mick's custom machined 'beefy clip' that is typically only found on his higher end XL's. It has also been given the full 'magma' treatment and can be reversed for either side carry.
