    Where to find a hinderer copy?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Let me start of by saying I own a REAL Hinderer XM-18.

    And I love it Rick if you're reading this.


    Now I was only wanting to know where people get these fakes from? Ive seen plenty on YouTube and such. I want one to carry around because I love the feel of the hinderer just don't want to carry it around, lose it or abuse it. Please email me if you know because I have feeling this thread is going to go waaaaaay off topic. I've googled but no luck.

    By buying a copy you are supporting the folks who take advantage of others hard work. Don't do that. We need to rid the industry of the unethical types, we don't need to give them our hardearned cash.

    There are literally 100's of folders in all sizes and shapes from good companies to choose from. You could also get a Zero Tolerance/Hinderer collaboration if you insist on a Hinderer designed knife.

    My advice to you: Use the knife you got. That's how you'll enjoy Ricks designs the most.
    Long live the weasels!

    Why not just get one of the Hinderer-designed Zero Tolerance knives? You'd not only be supporting Rick (instead of criminals who use his designs and name without permission) but would also get a knife that, unlike a fake, has superb build quality and materials and a quality company standing behind it.

    If you really want to carry something that looks exactly like a Hinderer XM-18, try the real Hinderer you already have: you'll appreciate it even more when you use and carry it.

    Fakes are comming directly from China [Removed]
    But why would you like to use fake? It renders the idea of owning a great knife negligible.
    It wont be 10% value of real knife - be it Rick work or ZT collaboration.

    I dont condemn it, just don't understand...
    I own a few china fakes, but just as a playthings, or to test idea of buying real one. Not to carry all the time.

    ^ I knew it would get off topic.

    I should've explained more. I collect high quality knives but I use the pocket knives i actually carry very heavily. I've never carried and beat on a knife that costs more than $80. I live on ranch and work on old Honda and Harley motorcyles/Datsuns alot so the knives I carry turn to junk very quickly. Cement/sand bags(the worst for pivots btw), feed bags, thick ropes, radiator hose, fuel line, scraping fouled spark plugs/points, boxes, freeing my goats from chewed tangled wire, etc. This is the stuff I cut on a daily basis. Im not going use a Hinderer for that nor a $200-270 Zero Tolerance because I'm not stupid or rich. I like his designs and I have shown support to him buying his knives already.

    All I want is an inexpensive beater knife that functions somewhat the same and has the same feel and from what I've seen on YouTube they do. Relax people.

    get a zero tolerance. don't support these people who knock off these well respected hard working knife makers.

    best solution would be to just use your hinderer. i carry and use my hinderer and sebenza. lifes just too short. enjoy it

    This is just a very poor show all round. DON'T buy fake stuff and don't try and justify buying it in any way shape or form, it is always wrong.

    We do not support fakes of any brand, nor do we specify where to get them.

    Nor is the General forum a place for posting a want ad or where to buy what.
