TMHM18CM01CM03K01: M18, Black Micarta with Natural Micarta Inlay
T.M. Hunt Custom Knives
Don't be scared! The M18 may look intimidating, but this is a serious tool that means business. Hailed by campers and survivalists alike, this beast from the mind of Todd Hunt has the strength and versatility to carry you through any adventure.
Just take a look at that blade! The O1 steel is a quarter inch thick, sporting Hunt's famous heat treat, with 10 inches of reach to power through any task. The front section is convexed for chopping strength, while the recurve edge is hollow ground, working great as a draw knife or when hooking into brush. The flat point allows the M18 to be used in ways that ordinary bush knives can not, including as a chisel or splitting open the carcasses of wild game.
The spine of the M18 receives as much attention as the sharp side, featuring chamfers for comfort, and the concave section near the tip is completely rounded over, eliminating hot-spots while using the knife as a draw knife and adding durability when splitting wood with a baton. Additionally, jimping near the tip allows you to choke up on the knife (while using the lanyard around your arm to support its weight) and use the small belly to perform fine work like notching wood or even skinning game.
The handles on the M18 are very accommodating, comfortable for large hands and small, with contours designed to prevent your hand from slipping. The Micarta used aids this with a matte texture for just the right amount of grip, and it will get even grippier when wet, allowing you to harness the maximum power of this blade.
The Kydex sheath is a spine draw design, with a leather retaining strap with a Pull-The-Dot one-way snap to prevent accidental release.
Each M18 is serialized. Serial number may not match the photo above.
