Columbia River M16 Law Enforcement Tanto Folding Knife M16-12ZLEK is built for function, not fad, and it is an exceptional value. This CRKT knife uses CRKT's 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. For professional use, the knife features a seat belt cutter on its Carson Flipper and a tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt. All components on the CRKT M-16 Police Tanto Combo Edge Folder Knife receive a tough tactical black coating. The Carson Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and it creates a blade guard when open. CRKT uses their premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades, which have a partially serrated combo edge to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation. The patented AutoLAWKS safety mechanism automatically makes the knife into a virtual fixed blade when the blade is opened and locked. For the most useful knife on patrol, choose the Columbia River Knife M16 Law Enforcement Tanto Nylon Handle Folding Knife.
