    Ya I noticed that too. Haha, I tightened it up and put it away. The copper doesn't hold up quite as well as I thought it would, ive had screws strip and loosen up nonstop. They look so good though.

    I put some new titanium battle bronze hardware and clip on my xm 24.
    Hard to tell which is the show-side on these Hinderers...:cool:
    Will take some shots by daylight too, curious how the color will come out with the sun.

    I know what you're sayin' about adding copper--it looks great, but ya gotta be care-ful with it. I added copper to my Half Track right after getting home from hip replacement surgery a couple years back--all dopey and fumbly--and damn near stripped all the screws. I got away with it, though, and really liked it all shiny and new then...

    ...as well as all tarnished like it is now.

    In today's news, I carried the first of my two Skinny's today and posted pics of my No-Choil Slicer over at the EDC Thread earlier. I've got a couple more from today so I'll post 'em here.

    This may not be worth a new thread but is it true that Hinderer XM-18s are usually not as sharp as brands like Spyderco and Cold Steel out of factory? I can run my fingers along the belly/tip portions of the edges of the three XM-18s that I recently purchased without worrying about being cut.

    The TI scales are awesome! I recently scored the smooth working finish Ti scale for my 3.5” spear point. I had the black dlc ti scale on there before. With all working finish hardware. It looked cool with the black dlc, but I think the all working looks best on this one. I wasn’t sure about the smooth finish until I tried it. With the jumping on the XM knives, they are plenty grippy with smooth or textured scales. Now if I could only find a battle green TI scale for my XM24!!

    My sheepsfoot was very sharp out of the box, my slicer not so much. I believe I would compare the blade grind to your other sharper knives, Hinderer uses a flat grind and you may be comparing to a hollow grind. Blade geometry & thickness probably has a part in that too, most hinderers are not skinny blades, even my skinnies are thicker than many blades I own.

    I've been eyeing ti scales for my Hinderer XM-18 3.5s. So they will perfectly fit, correct? With the liner removed I'd imagine the margin of errors must be kept to a minimal level, if any.

    Buy authentic hinderer parts. The TI scales replaces your g10 scale and liner. The fit will be perfect
