Columbia River M16-10KZ Knife
Carson M16-10KZ made by Columbia River Knife and Tool is a scaled down version of the M16. This black Zytel handled everyday knife has the AutoLAWKS system which automatically converts them into virtual fixed blades when opened. The 3-inch AUS 4 black stainless steel tanto blade has a razor sharp edge that allows easy resharpening and holds a great edge. The easy one handed opening and closing is as velvet smooth as the larger models the result of Teflon bearings at the blade pivot.
Harold "Kit" Carson is a Retired Sgt. Major and high profile member of the Knifemakers’ Guild. So he feels equally comfortable in the field or creating blades that can excel in it. Case in point: He designed the wildly successful M16 series named one of the Top 10 Tactical Folders of the Decade by Blade Magazine. True to his philosophy, they’re built for function, not fad. Since Kit is not one to talk about himself, we’ll tell you that he was also a 2012 Cutlery Hall of Fame inductee. Sadly, Kit passed away in 2014. A custom knifemaker, generous heart, and a designer mentor for over 40 years, he is greatly missed by all in the knife and tool community. Kit Carson's designs live on as a testament to his indomitable talent.
If It Still Looks This Good a Year From Now, We Want It Back.
This everyday carry pocket knife is designed just like the tactical version that inspired it—to be used. That's why it’s overbuilt with an open build frame, high carbon stainless steel blade, and the signature Carson Flipper. Admire it. Then put it to work.
The M16 Z everyday carry series was designed by Vine Grove, Kentucky's legendary custom knifemaker and retired Sgt. Major Harold "Kit" Carson. After years of crafting knives for military use, he answered the call when it came to creating one for the civilian population. Now people everywhere have a blade that’s ready for the line of duty in whatever capacity they see fit.
An affordable everyday carry knife, the M16-10KZ features a dual hollow grind tanto-style blade available in plain edge and Triple-Point serrated edges similar to our "Big Dog" tactical M16 models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly. It also comes loaded with a distinctive black frame and hardware with a non-reflective tactically inspired look. But at this price, you won’t feel guilty if you leave it at a job site somewhere as night sets in.
The blade opens easily when you need it most. Just put your finger on the Carson Flipper. Flick your wrist. Then it all locks into place with the AutoLAWKS safety that automatically actuates when the blades is open. It’s goodbye folder and hello fixed blade when locked. You’re safe and sound and ready to go.
Once you’re done with the task, pull the AutoLAWKS red pin back, slide the locking liner over, and fold it back up. The handle features easy-to-grip glass-reinforced nylon scales and a stainless steel lined InterFrame. Assembled with glass-reinforced nylon back spacers and Torx fasteners as well, the handle is rigid and offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents. A one position, stainless steel pocket clip rounds out the features. Hold on and be ready to put this knife through anything.
