CRM1613DSFG: Carson Special Forces - Tan G10 Handle - Combo Edge
Columbia River Knife & Tool

Introducing another line of military knives for desert environments: our premium-quality G10 folders at a value price.

After the success of process of developing our new line of Carson special forces G10 M16® and M21™ models, it became apparent that there was a demand for these models from coalition forces serving in desert environments.

Just like their black tactical counterparts, these knives share a unique design offering a combination of Carson SF series features requested by military procurement specialists. All have combined Razor-Sharp and Veff™ Serrated edges. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— up to now rare in folding knives.

Blade and scales are non-reflective Desert Tan. Premium 8Cr14 stainless steel blades receive titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit’s trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. On all models, one-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth.

The open InterFrame build uses Desert Tan scales of G10, and stainless steel liners with friction grooves. G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight, and the insulating properties which make it cooler in heat and warmer in cold than metal.

All models feature our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically turns the folders into fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.

M16®-13DSFG Slim Profile G10. This model features a 3.50” (8.9 cm) dual grind Tanto blade and is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum. It weighs only 4.0 ounces.

They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces desert use.

About the Knife Designer
Kit Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, is a retired professional soldier, rising to the level of Sergeant Major. He has made knives for 30 years and has been a full-time knifemaker since 1993. He is a voting member of the Knifemakers’ Guild. Kit has been an avid hunter and fisherman for over 40 years, growing up enjoying the woods and trout streams in the mountains of north Georgia. About his philosophy of knife design, he says: “I strive to follow form and function in the knives I design and build. My reputation has been built around solid working knives, both fixed blade and folders. All the time spent outdoors as a young man and the time spent around the world with the Army has strongly influenced the knives I create.” Nothing reflects this approach more than the Carson Design of our M16 series, which is built for function, not to follow fads. This highly successful knife series was named one of the Top 10 Factory Tactical Folders of the Decade by Blade magazine. The M16-14M recently won a comparison test conducted by Germany’s Messer magazine.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Beat daily carry I've ever had.
I've been carrying this knife as my daily carry for. Many years now and honestly I would never change. Unless Microtech OTF knifed were deemed ok for civilian carry use. Build quality, knife edge that put razors to shame, and a serration that scares the daylights out of anything you use it on. I would highly recommend this knife for anyone that's a fan of CRKT (Cricket) knives. You will not be disappointed.

Cons: None
Cool Knife
This is a great knife for easy tasks such as cutting rope, cord, tape, paper, etc. It is also a great every day carry knife and is very easy to use. The only thing is if you use the knife for other than cutting and it breaks in some way, it voids CRKT's warranty. This is a great knife for its designed purpose!
