CRKT has produced Kit Carson's popular M16 line in many variations over the past decade. The Zytel version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.
The CRKT M16 - 14ZLEK Folding Knife uses the very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured Zytel scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner and solid Zytel back spaces. The handle is assembled with superior offset Torx fasteners.
For professional use, a seat belt cutter has been added to the Carson Flipper, and a tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt. Automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife.
All components receive a tough tactical coating. The Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and creates a blade guard when open. Premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel is used for the blade, which has Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas and vegetation.
The M16-14ZLEK is fitted with the patented AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically makes it into a virtual fixed blade when the blade is opened and locked.
The M16 - 14ZLEK is a hefty 6.2 oz. knife with a 3.75" long Tanto blade that is able to tackle virtually any emergency task. This larger model features a four-position clip, allowing carry on belts or webbing - tip up, tip down, left or right. Please note: This knife is not designed for tip-up in pocket carry.
Full professional features. Non-reflective black finish. Exceptional affordability. Kit Carson rides again.
