CRKT M16-14ZLEK 3.8" Pocket Knife (Combo Edge, Black Zytel Handle)
We have produced Kit Carson's popular M16 line in many variations over the past decade. Our glass filled nylon version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.
Our new M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid glass filled nylon back spacers. We assemble the handle with superior offset Torx fasteners.
For professional use, we'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. We use our 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 our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically makes them into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.
M16-14ZLEK. The "Big Dog" M16 is a hefty 6.2-ounce 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: These knives are not designed for tip-up in pocket carry.
Full professional features. Non-reflective black finish. Exceptional affordability. Kit Carson rides again.
