    Default Let's see your Hinderer knives

    A Big Brown truck arrived today with a XM-24 for me

    I was surprised just how big it is (on top) compared to the XM-18's





    Here some pictures of my other Hinderer knives,

    The custom slicer grind on the 3" looks great. Both of the one that I have had were the production spanto grind, which I never really feel in love with. The Hinderers are the best looking knives out there right now in my opinion. Great pics. Thanks

    How does the ZT compare?

    Thanks for your comments! The custom 3'' is actually a "Deep Swedge Spearpoint" grind. The ZT is great, but it needs to be broken in! I bought it new and opened it up a few times, then put it back in the box. The custom scale (LSCF) was made last month, I took a few pictures and then back in the box. The only knife I EDC is one of the 3.5" XM's, I haven't put anything else in rotation. After playing with the XM-24 a little last night I'm finding it hard to get use to the flipper. Maybe with a little more practice I'll get the hang of it, if not.........

    Here is a older pic of my 3". I carried it daily for about six month. I have since sold the knife, but miss it. Will probably get another sooner of later. I will probably save up for a custom version.

    Nice pic of a great EDC combo! It looks like you prefer the non-flippers as well?

    My first XM-18 was a flipper and I hated it, but the non-flipper 3" and 3.5" both won me over. Didn't like the flipper action as well as just swinging the knife to throw the blade out and the flipper seemed to ruin the user friendliness by just being in the way and not helping out in any manner.

    Great side by side pics bro thanks for sharing You can really tell the difference good, even the 3.5 seems to be a bit bigger then the 3

    ETA: My dream Hinderer is a 3.5 wharncliff flipper......someday someday

    It IS. Personally, I would think the xm-24 would feel like a small SWORD!!!

    I had a 3" version and although I liked it, it just felt to petite for my hands, and they are NOT large!

    3.5" version is, IMO, the PERFECT size and heft.

    I prefer the XM-18 3.5" as well, it's been my EDC for the last 6 months. I don't think the XM-24 is like a "SWORD" though, it's just a little beefier. When I need something a little bigger, I go to the Wendigo

    Here is the only one I've ever had, lottery winner at the first USN Gathering. Pictured with USN coins, and a Starlingear Bulldog Bead.

    Yes, but unfortunately the premium on them right now is super-high given it is an unusual configuration on the least-produced size (the legendary 3-inch) in which demand is huge and supply sucks...it's crazy given the standard models 3 inch XM's are easily exceeding $1,000 in many private sales (and the MSRP of the base XM-18 is something like $400 IIRC.) I saw one sell for almost $1,700 a few months ago!!! Many authorized dealers who manage get them are putting them on eBay given the premiums they bring, making finding them at a decent price even harder.

    I've been trying to find a reasonably-priced 3 inch for about 2 years now...no luck (and I think the 3 inch is best not as a flipper and love the spanto...so I'm looking for that rare one as well!)

    It seems we've all been hoping that Rick Hinderer Knives would be able to ramp-up their production capacity so they could start making more knives to meet the demand...arguably, it's the most popular knife in its respective class, and it has one of the lowest supply. Since I became a fan of the XM's, I personally don't think this is yet to happen. Like a few years ago, sourcing this awesome knife is still an absolute nightmare
