Built for Killing--A Weekend To-Do List.

Inspired by the M16 tactical knives, this is a straight up "no frills" folding EDC version of the legendary military knife. It claims victory over any day-to-day chores. An open build frame, stainless steel handles, and the signature Carson Flipper are ready for the field, home, or wherever the blade is deployed.

Designed by retired Master Sergeant Harold "Kit" Carson of Vine Grove, KY, the M16-10S features a lot of the same DNA as the M16 tactical folding knives but in the tough stainless steel (SS) handle variation. When duty called for a proven knife design platform made simple, tough and affordable, this was Kit's answer.

A knife you can use every day, it comes equipped in both plain edge and Triple-Point Serrations, similar to our "Big Dog" M16 tactical models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly. Not to mention the occasional letter from the mailbox.

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 a traditional frame lock mechanism. The flipper even doubles as an effective blade guard in the open position. Safety on? Check.

When it comes to the handle, the M16-10S is a like a twin to the other M16 knives. Yet this is the stainless steel brother who likes a more classic style. With a standard removable stainless steel pocket clip it's ready for transport—even if it's just to the remote reaches of the garage.

Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Handle Material, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
Seems to be a good small EDC knife. Lock is very to disengage and button openong is almost no way to use. Opening bar is excellent to open with a good flick.

A great EDC knife!
This is a great addition to my collection of EDC knives. I've always wanted a M16 design and now I've got one. It feels good in my hand. All the details are executed very precisely. After practicing my flip technique the blade locks back every time. Tucks away very nicely clipped to my pocket. I've got small hands so in use it feels good, both in weight and shape. I'd imagine in bigger hands it might get lost. The only minor pick but this seems a common one, is the clip. The bottom part seems to grab on to insides of jackets and things I might brush against when kneeling or sitting. All and all a very good no frills knife. Worth the price I think.
