post #1186 of 1733

Yes! Finally someone who edc's a Hinderer shamelessly. I've been wanting to get my hands on one, but the only time I ever had the money to afford it...I ended up buying JH16's instead. They are getting reshelled right now, but I've been eyeing the budget ZT 0561. If you ever really get bored of it and just want to pass it on, I'm right here! Haha.

Hinderer XM-18 3.5 flipper.

 

 

I got bored a few weeks ago and tried my hand at making a scale from NON knife making tools. Made from 1/8'' copper plate:

My buddy has wanted a Benchmade griptillian so I just picked up this for him. Have not even gotten a chance to give it to him yet:

au, 

 

What are the XMs currently going for retail? I got mine straight from Rick. With the EMS discount, I think I paid like $300 for it. I beat the hell out of this thing though. It definatly looks "well used", As a Hinderer should look... ;)

I have a friend who handed me his XM-18 to sell/trade for a nice Strider too, he paid like the cost of a Sebenza for it since he's EMS.

Does the EMS price apply to retired military?

post #1190 of 1733

Well the EMS price is for EMS. You might have better luck getting the Military price since you are a retired mil wink.gif

 

Give them a shout via email. The address is on their web site. Rob will reply pretty fast. With any luck they will give you the Military discount regardless if you are active or not.

I love my Kershaw Scallion!

 

I have a Kershaw Leek, Benchmade Griptillian, and a few Spyderco's, but the Scallion is the true winner.

 

Scallion has a wicked blade shape, it's inexpensive, it's assisted open, small, very easy to maneuver/control, and legal almost anywhere (including on college campuses).

 

Got mine on eBay with a Koi design. Gotta love it. :]

I need a Strider-vention is what I need!

 

3 out of 4 of these guys have kinda wonky lockup and I need to sent it back. The only one that doesn't is the 2012 ghost striped version (stonewashed, with oxide stripes) since it has the new flat tang cut.

 

I buy old used Striders that people give up on, and then send them back to be rebuilt and then it comes back like new!  Lol at the American need for instant gratification sometimes.

Thanks! Went off to get me one but saw they go for $300+. Might consider the Boker Albatross (I already own the Boker Plus but it's a bit too tiny) as a more budget-friendly alternative. What do you guys think? Any other options with a form factor resembling the Nano but a more affordable price?

The Boker Albatross is a VERY stout little knife designed by an amazing knife maker. I have been meaning to pick one up. WELL worth the $99 asking price.
