The XM-18 is known the world over as one of the toughest tactical folders regardless of your mission. Rick’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.
This variation has a thinner blade than the traditional 3.5″ XM-18. The blade is .140″ thick, the same as the 3″ XM-18, which gives the knife a better slicing edge.
This knife features the Tri-Way Pivot System. The knife is pre-installed with bearings, and also includes phosphor bronze and teflon washers.
NOTE: The 3.5″ Skinny Sheepsfoot has a new standoff and scale screw set to accomodate the sheepsfoot blade. It will fit a 3″ XM-18 pivot screw, standard 3.5″ XM-18 Liners, and 3.5″ XM-18 Skinny Scales.
