CRM1613ZM: Carson M16-13ZM Folder
The service men and women of the coalition forces in the Middle East and Afghanistan require cutting tools that can stand up to the harsh demands of the desert. Our Carson Desert Tactical Folders have been developed specifically to blend into the desert environment. 

Our M16®-13ZM Military model features our super rigid InterFrame build with 420J2 stainless steel liners, threaded stainless steel back spacers, and Desert Camo pattern glass filled nylon scales. The blade is non-reflective bead-blast finished AUS 4 stainless steel. It blends and almost disappears in the desert. 

This model features a 3.50" (89 mm) spear point blade and weighs only 3.5 oz. (99 g). It is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum. It comes with a removable clothing/gear clip. 

It also features our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically turns the folder into a fixed blade when the blade is opened and locked. 

One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of precision tolerances and lubrous washers at the blade pivot. The dual ambidextrous thumb studs with checkered surfaces provide instant access in any circumstance. 

The blade has Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges. 

*U.S. Patent Nos. 5,596,808 and 7,437,822

Great knife
This is the second one I have owned. After 5 years I broke the tip of my first knife when prying a bucket loose. This is a replacement

Pros: Handle Feel, Handle Material, Weight, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
now this is what crkt's all about
and i do mean in a seriously good way! when crkt first started it was about modern affordable quality cutlery. no misses here! why this particular model? because it's a no brainer. to top it off, tan colored zytel doesn't absorb heat like those models in black or with metal handles. so it's cool! both in n out of the pocket. it's easy on the pocket, easy to use, n easily the edc of choice what's there to hate? except if u're a steel snob? but hey, as long as it cuts who's complaining? after all every single knife requires some looking at come some point or other. i wouldn't hesitate to replace it with the same model from now come dooms day.
