Columbia River Carson M16-12ZLEK Folding Knife 3" Combo Tanto Blade, Zytel Handles
CRM1612ZLEK: M16-12ZLEK - Kit Carson Design
We have produced Kit Carson's popular M16® line in many variations over the past decade. Our Zytel® version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.
Our new M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured Zytel® scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid Zytel back spacers. We assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners.
For professional use, we've added a seat belt cutter to the Carson Flipper, and a tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt. Automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife.
All components receive a tough tactical black coating. The Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and creates a blade guard when open. We use our premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades, which have Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation.
All three models are fitted with our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically makes them into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.
M16®-12ZLEK. This is our smaller Tanto-blade version. The very strong blade grind makes a compact and versatile rescue folder. A black stainless steel two-position pocket/gear clip is included.
Full professional features. Non-reflective black finish. Exceptional affordability.
Kit Carson rides again.
