Rick Hinderer XM-18 Gen 4, Slicer Grind

Rick Hinderer Slicer Grind Generation 4 XM-18

Blade Steel:  Duratech 20CV
Blade Size = 3.5 Inch
Overall Length = 8.25"
Weight = 5.6 oz
Lock Type = Frame Lack
Materials:  Titanium scale and g-10 scale
Flipper or No Flipper:  No Flipper
Color:  OD Green Scale

--Overall comments:

-  Very nice high end knife
- Ergonomics very good.
-The figer choil on the blade (like a Strider) is very good for detailed cutting, but may limit the amount of force you can apply to the blade due to the non-traditional finger placement.
- Very sharp, durable, heavy use capable
- Extremely high quality, blade centering is perfect.  
- Due to the high quality and rugged use I consider it a mix between a Chris Reeve Knife and a Strider.
