Here is Kit Carson's M16 Every Day Carry
(EDC) with our glass filled nylon InterFrame build. Our knife users told
us, "We want an affordable work knife that we can give hard use without
feeling guilty, and one that won't break us up if we leave it on a job
site or drop it in the river."
We heard you. So we set about to make the Z EDC the best value in the work and sport knife world.
starts with textured glass filled nylon scales and a dual 2CR13
stainless steel liner InterFrame. Assembled with glass filled nylon back
spacers and Torx fasteners, the result is amazingly rigid. Glass filled
nylon offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents. Lubrous
washers at the blade pivot and an adjustable pivot screw allow for
perfect blade action.
The blade is 8CR15MoV high-carbon stainless
steel which gives an ideal combination of toughness and edge-holding
ability in a work knife, and also allows easy field-sharpening.
M16-10KZ features a dual hollow grind Tanto-style blade with Combined
Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges similar to our "Big Dog" M16
models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through
cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly. It has a black EDP blade,
black frame and hardware for a non-flective tactical look.
Of course, it features the Carson Flipper, which speeds opening of the blade and acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.
real breakthrough was our ability to engineer our patented* AutoLAWKS
knife safety into all models, which automatically actuates when the
blades are open, making these folders into virtual fixed blades when
Add to these features the standard removable stainless
steel clothing/gear clip plus the CRKT limited lifetime warranty, and
you have one of the truly great knife values of our time.
