XM® Series knives have a robust, heavy duty construction with a handle that is similar to a tactical fixed-blade knife. These knives are engineered to be an ultra-light, precision balanced alternative to spring-loaded blades and locks. No spring-loaded opening mechanism or spring assisted lock means the fast deploying XM® will have a longer lifetime and open just as smoothly every time with little to no cleaning required. Manufactured with N690Co Cobalt enhanced, cryo-quenched, stainless steel blades and machined aircraft aluminum handles.
