Columbia River M16 Carson Tanto Folding Tactical Knife M16-13SF utilizes a unique design, offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. The CRKT knife features a 3.50" dual grind Tanto blade made from AUS 8 stainless steel and hollow ground into a versatile combo edge. The blade, frame and hardware of this knife are non-reflective tactical black, and the blade receives a black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit Carson's trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard on the CRKT M-16 Kit Carson Tanto Combo Edge Military Knife, making for quick and smooth one-hand opening. The knife also features Columbia River's exclusive patented AutoLAWKS automatic safety, which turns the folder into a virtual fixed blade automatically. Contoured scales of textured, hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and a double Carson Flipper make for a comfortable, easy to control handle. Though it doesn't come with a knife sheath, the M16 is equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. For a high-performance, low weight folding tactical knife, choose the Columbia River Knife & Tool M16 InterFrame Tanto Folder Knife.
