Kit Carson, Knifemakers' Guild Member, and designer of the M16 Series, designs for function, not fad. Heft any M16 and you'll know what that means. For example, wide blade design for multiple and difficult tasks. Sure-grip contoured handles of 6061 T6 hard anodized charcoal gray aluminum with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without work gloves. A stainless steel locking liner with friction grooves for positive locking with limited access and superior safety. AUS 8 stainless steel blades, chosen for edge retention and durability, in non-reflective frost finish. Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges for rugged cutting tasks that break down standard cutting edges.
All models feature the "Carson Flipper" extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard. It makes the M16 line especially easy to open when wearing gloves.
The M16-13 has a slim profile design that is ideal for a variety of carry positions. It features a spear point blade with a false grind on the top edge.
One-hand opening and closing is velvet smooth, the result of Teflon bearings at the blade pivot. The ambidextrous thumb studs with checkered surface provide instant access in any circumstance. Every model features a removable Teflon plated stainless steel clothing/gear clip.
Also incorporated is the patented Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS) into all M16 models, which converts them into virtual fixed blades when engaged.
All models of the M16 Series are perfectly balanced, and every detail has a working purpose.
