CRKT M16-14 Big Dog Desert Tan Tanto Folding Knife M16-14D has been developed specifically to blend into the desert environment. This CRKT folding knife has a 6061-T6 aluminum-frame handle, hard anodized in a Desert Tan finish. The 3.875" AUS 8 stainless steel blade, chosen for edge retention and durability, features a highly corrosion-resistant Desert Tan non-reflective titanium nitride coating and is equipped with a triple-point serrated combo edge to cut through nets, webbing and vegetation quickly. This knife also features the exclusive CRKT patented AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically turns the folder into a fixed blade when the Columbia River M1614 Big Dog Desert Combo Edge Tanto Folder Knife is opened and locked. One-handed opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of precision tolerances and lubrous washers at the blade pivot, and the dual ambidextrous thumb studs of the knife provide instant access in any circumstance. For a powerful tactical folding knife that's optimized for desert environments, use the Columbia River Knife & Tool M16-14 Big Dog AutoLAWKS Folder Knife.
