CRKT M16-02Z Kit Carson Design Tanto
For years, Kit Carson's M16® designs have been CRKT’s 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.
They use the very successful InterFrame construction, tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. CRKT overbuild it for rigidity, using solid glass filled nylon back spacers. And they assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly.
CRKT uses tough AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility, and offer Razor-Sharp edges.
The M16®-02Z features a Tanto-style blade with a Razor-Sharp edge. It is ideal for fine cutting and carving tasks. Of course, it features the Carson Flipper, which speeds opening of the blade and acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.
The real breakthrough was the ability to engineer CRKT’s patented* AutoLAWKS™ knife safety into all models, which automatically actuates when the blades are open, making these folders into virtual fixed blades when locked.
Add to these features the standard removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip plus the CRKT limited lifetime warranty.
