CRKT has produced Kit Carson’s popular M16 line in many variations over the past decade. Their Zytel version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values. Their new M16 ZLER line uses their very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured Zytel scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid Zytel back spacers. CRKT assembles the handle with superior offset Torx®fasteners. For professional use, they’ve added a seat belt cutter 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 black coating. The Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and creates a blade guard when open. They use premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades, which have Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation. All three models are fitted with their exclusive patented AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically makes them into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked. Full professional features. Non-reflective black finish. Exceptional affordability. Kit Carson rides again.
