The name came from Rick's wife Lori stating that the knife looks like a claw, a really big claw like a talon, and Rick might've interpreted that as the first scene from Jurassic Park, thus the knife became the Jurassic. This full titanium folder is just as ergonomic as the XM-18 but the two finger grooves make for a more solid saber grip. The raised spine makes this knife what Rick calls a "drop edge" where the cutting surface is positioned lower in your hand for more cutting power. The knife features dragon scale texturing for grip and to stick with the namesake and it utilizes all the standard XM hardware and accessories including the HMBS. It is ever so slightly smaller than the XM-18 3.5 yet it remains an excellent choice for both combat and utility tasks.
This is one of only two Prototypes available with the marking clearly on the S35VN blade and this knife was handmade in Ohio with pride. What really makes this knife stand out, is that it features Rick's amazing creation; the HMBS- Hinderer Modular Backspacer System!
The HMBS is an innovative patent pending design that features a removable backspacer. The great thing about using a knife with the installed HMBS, no disassembly is required to switch out back spacers with one of the many variations Hinderer offers.
