CRKT M21-12 Little Bulldog
The swedged and recurved blade of the M21-12 is ground to a spear point shape, using premium AUS 8 stainless steel in non-reflective frost finish to offer superior edge retention. The grind incorporates a false top edge and deep belly, yet retains a full width central spine for most of its length for maximum strength. We offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge grinds.
Lubrous washers at the blade pivot assure velvety-smooth one-hand opening and closing, using Kit Carson's trademark dual checkered thumb studs which also act as a blade stop.
The M21-12 features the very popular "Carson Flipper" blade extension, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.
Kit Carson's open build uses contoured handles of 6061 T6 aluminum, hard anodized charcoal gray. They are CNC machined with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without work gloves, skeletonized to reduce weight. There is a single stainless steel locking liner with friction grooves for positive locking.
CRKT has also incorporated their patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic knife safety into the M21-12, which converts it into a virtual fixed blade when the blade is open and locked.
Every M21-12 features a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip. All fasteners, including the clip screws, are Torx.
