Did anyone notice the change in the XM24? The blades are no longer labeled S35VN and the logo "HINDERER" are no longer embedded in the frame-lock side but it seems to be etched in there... Are there any other changes? Do we think this is going to be permanent?
I just got my XM-24 brand new last week and although the blade is not stamped, The Hinderer name is pretty well embedded in the frame lock side.
What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
I laid my knives out and every one of them had a different appearance in the "Hinderer" embeddment/etching.
The steels used are 20CV (not etched) CTS-XHP (etched) and S35VN.
These are hand made and will vary by knife/model/batch etc. The stop pin will probably change, I've seen changes in the thumb studs.....
Yes, I imagine things will change/vary/etc.
Hope that helps
Give me a few minutes to get a photo set up and I'll post for educational purposes.
I love them all.
For education edification and elucidation:
Well, I guess I was wrong and this whole thread was started because I never noticed the variations and thought it was a change...
