CRKT M16-03Z 3.5" Pocket Knife (Plain Edge, Black Zytel Handle)
For years, Kit Carson's M16 designs have been our most popular series. And our Z version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad. And they are exceptional values.
The M16-03Z and M16-13Z are slim designs with spear point blades. They are ideal for a variety of carry positions.
They use our very successful InterFrame construction, tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. We overbuild it for rigidity, using solid glass filled nylon back spacers. And we assemble the handle with superior offset Torx fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly.
We use our tough AUS 4 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility, and offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges.
All models feature the Carson Flipper, which is not only an aid to opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.
We've also incorporated our patented* AutoLAWKS automatic knife safety into all models, which converts the M16 Z series into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked.
All styles have lubrous washers and a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip.
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.

Excellent EDC. Perfect size, functionality, and weight. Very easy to open & close unless your a moron! Use the flipper to open. The so-called thumb studs are actually the blade stop. Their not suppose to be used to open the knife! Easy to sharpen. Well built knife. Worth every penny.
This is a totally SWEET knife!! It was bigger than I expected. It has nice lines, good grip and the blade is smooth as grease. It was very sharp when I got it. I ran the factory edge off with a smooth stone and it now a razor!! I have had several of my coworkers purchase the same knife. I had a 3" blade M-16 and I really love it as a back up knife and this knife is the best! I am getting more of these for gifts for the family, friends and folks I know enjoy a good quality knife. Thanks for a good deal on this blade.
The knife is slim, which doesn't take up much room in my pocket. It is sharp and well made. The only problem I have is it is somewhat difficult to learn to open, with having to unlock and open at the same time. I still like it enough to make it the main knife I carry.
