CRKT M16-Z Tanto Combo Edge Folding Knife


CRKT M16-Z Tanto Combo Edge Folding Knife

For years, Kit Carson's M16® designs have been CRKT's® most popular series, and the M16-Z version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad. And they are exceptional values.

This version of the M16® uses CRKT's very successful InterFrame construction and tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. CRKT overbuilds it for rigidity, using solid glass filled nylon back spacers and assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly. The tough AUS 4 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades gives greater everyday utility.

The Carson Flipper not only aids in opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.

CRKT also incorporated their patented AutoLAWKS™ automatic knife safety which converts the M16-Z series into virtual fixed blades when the blade is open and locked.

Think of the M16-Z as a Clydesdale - ready to rush a knight into battle or pull a beer wagon. Every day. Day after day.
