Description
crm2102gl: M21-02GL Left Hander - Kit Carson Design
Columbia River
 
It began like a Christmas wish list. What if we could build Kit Carson's M21™ series just the way a custom knifemaker would: with a G10 and stainless steel InterFrame build and a titanium nitride-coated premium stainless steel blade? What if we could bring it in at a very competitive value price? 

Just like a kid on Christmas morning, we got everything we wanted. 

New Left-Hand Model. This year, we are responding to demand with a lefthand model, the M21-02GL, the smaller size with Razor-Sharp edge. The M21-02GL has the swedged and recurved spear point blade which is made of premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a nonreflective black titanium nitride finish which gives maximum corrosion resistance. 

There are many reasons custom knifemakers choose an InterFrame build with stainless steel liners and G10 scales in preference to aluminum or even titanium scales. First, the aggressive G10 texture gives unparalleled grip. Second, it is very strong. Third, it is lightweight. And finally, G10 is an insulator with a low specific heat. Therefore, it is cooler to grip in the beating desert sun, and warmer to grip at subfreezing temperatures. 

The M21-02GL model also features the very popular "Carson Flipper" blade extension, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard. 

Unlike the typical custom knifemaker, we are able to engineer our patented AutoLAWKS™ automatic knife safety into all M21 models, which converts them into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked. 

As is standard practice on CRKT folders, Teflon® bearings at the blade pivot assure velvety-smooth one-hand opening and closing, using Kit Carson's trademark dual checkered thumb studs which also act as a blade stop. Every model features a removable Teflon®-plated stainless steel clothing/gear clip. All fasteners, including the clip screws, are Torx®. Liners, hardware and clip are black oxide coated. 

So there you have the M21-02GL. Everything you could ask for in a custom-quality work knife at a great price. Does that make us feel jolly? Ho, ho, ho!

Cons: Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use
Love the blade design.
Great blade design, great size and weight great for EDC and hunting of small game. Edge retention is it's weak point. Come on guys start making this great knife with a better blade steel.

Birthday Gift
My son-in-law had this knife on his birthday wish list. When he received it and now that he's had a chance to use it, he is very pleased with the knife. According to him, it is everything it was advertised to be and more. This is the second time I've purchased from KnifeCenter.com for him, and I would not hesitate to do so again.

Every day use in rural/outdoor setting. It is very nice to get a liner locking knife made for left handers. I am thinking about ordering another.
