    Never mind, found some up-close pics, definitely different screws and not interchangeable.

    Was curious, I have an xm18 3.5 gen 6 sheepsfoot and noticed it has the T6 star bit type scale screws.

    Wanted to know if the regular xm18 3.5 Allen style scale screws will work also. Just looking at option for either anodized or black scales screws.

    No, regular won’t work on sheepsfoot blades. They use Eklipse standoffs and screws.

    Alright, I could have sworn Rick said in some Vid that he couldn’t use the standard XM18 standoffs because of the sheepsfoot blade shape.
    So he utilized the Eklipse standoffs and screws to accommodate the sheepsfoot Blade.

    So has anyone ever tried what this guy did on his XM18 3.5 sheepsfoot. He used regular XM hardware :confused:o_Oo_O

    Great looking Swear Point :thumbsup:


    Beg pardon, fellas..Have any heard, either from Blade or FB (I'm not on FB group) of accessories or a Vintage Series for the Firetac being released in the future?

    Any insight would be most appreciated. Thanks

    The typical answer about hardware for any of the knives from the RHK crew is "soon" I've asked them over the phone about fulltrack and XM skinny hardware, they told me it would be by the end of the year. They recently got a new machine, they say it's so they can increase hardware production.

    Would also like to see a few firetacs be released in the stonewashed DLC soon. I think that would look awesome on that blade, or even standard DLC.

    Same here! Ordered a Firetac the other day. Looking forward to it! Sold my XM spear point a while back because it was a little too thick behind the edge, and I haven’t found a 3.5” slicer that wasn’t in the Working finish, so Firetac it is. I’ve missed having a Hinderer though.
