The M16 is the most popular series that CRKT
has ever seen. They're humbled to do right by the revered Kit Carson
with this iteration of a legendary tactically-inspired everyday carry
folding knife. This one is more than just a fresh take on a classic.
It's a true tribute to one of the greats.
The late Kit Carson
designed this and many of his other groundbreaking knives in his shop in
Vine Grove, Kentucky. Kit's lasting legacy comes from his influence on
the knife industry's known for popularizing the flipper which is now a
household component. In addition, he's also remembered for his esteemed
ranking as a Master Sergeant and his high-profile membership in the
Cutlery Hall of Fame. The M16-02KS keeps all we love of Kit's original
tactically-inspired everyday carry folding knife and adds a tanto blade
complete with a durable black oxide finish. With its hardy frame lock,
it's securely held in place in the midst of whatever job you put in
front of it while the stainless steel handle bored with five holes keeps
clean and light.
With the M16 reissue, CRKT is honoring a legend the best way they know how.
