CRM1614SFG: Carson M16 Special Forces - Tanto Combo Edge - Black G10 Handle
Columbia River Knife & Tool

Special knives designed with military special forces in mind, the M16-SF's are "folding fixed blades." G10 InterFrame build.

These knives share a unique design offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. The dual grind Tanto blades were specified because they offer maximum strength. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— very rare in folding knives.

Blade, frame and hardware are non-reflective tactical black. Blades receive black 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.

All SF models feature our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety, which turns the folders into virtual fixed blades automatically.

Our aluminum frame SFs feature contoured scales of textured, hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum, with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without gloves, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and premium AUS 8 stainless steel blades. Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges are standard

These G10 models feature scales of black G10, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and premium 8Cr14 stainless steel blades with our exclusive Combination Veff™ Serrations. G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight, and superior insulating properties.

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces 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: Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening
Cons: Blade Material, None
Zero Flaw Design
This knife is an easy recommendation for a person looking for one knife to deploy overseas with (get two even at this price). Good all around utility and opens into a safe tool you can use confidently for all normal-use military field-knife tasks. The design is about perfect in every respect and would still be excellent with more exotic materials. The materials used though are well-chosen at price point and the machining is flawless. The blade finish is well-chosen too - basically rugged knife finish with little to complain about.. Auto-Lawks works very conveniently with one hand and the knife mechanism is smooth as well as basically rugged. The design though stands out as thoroughly excellent. Knife stays in the hand well with all grips and changes grip thoughtlessly, and the G-10 doesn't bind in its grip, simply not drawing negative attention to itself; just deploy, use and fold the knife with one hand and put it away without a second thought.

Well made knife
This knife is great. From build quality to the small nuances like the smooth deployment, you get way more than you pay for. A lot heftier than I predicted but it works well. The blade is super sharp and the Veff serrations are a nice touch. This thing is built like a tank and it functions like a machine.
