An easy-to-access concealed knife can be an officer’s or operator’s saving grace when faced with a life and death encounter in the field — which is why Ontario Knife Company has introduced the ultimate combat knife — the Ontario Knife Company XM-1 Folder (NSN: 1095-01-535-5724). Constructed with N690Co Stainless Steel with a satin finish, this blade boasts incredible toughness yet is engineered to be a lightweight, precision balanced alternative to spring-loaded blades and locks. With no spring-loaded opening mechanism, Ontario Knife Company is able to deliver a sleek, compact and extremely effective blade that will open smoothly every time.
Available with either a plain or partially serrated blade edge, and yielding an overall length of 8 inches, the Ontario Knife Company XM-1 Folder also features cryo-quenched dual titanium liner locks for maximum safety. Its machined aircraft aluminum handle is extremely low profile, housing a 3.375 inches long / 0.19-inch thick blade, and comes equipped with a handy pocket clip so it is conveniently concealed in a pocket, boot or belt. The handle features an ergonomic thumb ramp and finger grooves to improve grip and the blade’s fuller keeps the knife’s overall weight at a mere 6.5 ounces — resulting in an extremely lightweight, low profile and useful knife.
