The Hinderer XM-18 Slipjoint is a departure from the typical Hinderer framelock folder. The innovative slipjoint pocket knife has a track milled into the blade that allows the thumb disc to be moved forward or back, so you can customize how the knife opens. The adjustment allows for fine tuning personal preference so that the Hinderer XM Slippy can be opened easily with one hand. If you don't like thumb discs, remove it and use the track as a traditional long pull. Out of the box the Hinderer XM-18 is setup with a clip in the tip down carry position, but can be swapped for tip up carry. Don't like clips on your slipjoint pocket knife? Don't worry, remove the clip and insert a filler tab for a smooth back.
The XM-18 Slipjoint is a great mix between modern design with a highend 20CV stainless steel blade and traditional knives. If you like Hinderer knives or modern slipjoints; this knife is a winner.
