The M16 is the most popular series that CRKT has ever seen. They’re humbled to do right by the revered Kit Carson with this iteration of a legendary tactically-inspired everyday carry folding knife. This one is more than just a fresh take on a classic. It’s a true tribute to one of the greats.
The late Kit Carson designed this and many of his other groundbreaking knives in his shop in Vine Grove, Kentucky. Kit’s lasting legacy comes from his influence on the knife industry—he’s known for popularizing the flipper which is now a household component. In addition, he’s also remembered for his esteemed ranking as a Master Sergeant and his high-profile membership in the Cutlery Hall of Fame. The M16-03KS keeps all we love of Kit’s original tactically-inspired everyday carry folding knife and adds a spear point blade complete with a durable bead blast finish. With its hardy frame lock, it’s securely held in place in the midst of whatever job you put in front of it while the stainless steel handle bored with five holes keeps clean and light.
With the M16 reissue, CRKT is honoring a legend the best way they know how.
