Description
CRM1601KS: M16-01KS - Spear Point - Black - Designed by Kit Carson
CRKT
 
The M16 –SS EDC Series - A proven knife design platform made simple, made tough, and made affordable. 

If you are a fan of the Kit Carson designed M16 tactical folding knives you are going to want to check out these stainless steel (SS) variations. 

Handles are shaped and contoured in the same confident grip M16 style, but are crafted of a retro flavored stainless steel. Handles are all finished in a classic black oxide finish. These folders are available in several blade style options including cutting edge configurations, each with their own user advantages to offer. Blades also feature the Carson Flipper for quick and convenient blade actuation—and the flipper doubles as an effective blade guard in the open position. Blade lock up is secured through the traditional framelock mechanism. 

The M16-SS EDC Series is a straight up, "no frills" every day carry folder design that kicks butt in pure performance and value.
Features

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Steel Handles
Steel Handles
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability while using chromium oxide to create a rust-resistant barrier.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

M16-01KS
I have always carried a knife on me. For any task that requires one. This is one knife I truly can say I enjoy having, It has a good strong feel to it. It locks in firm to the handle and eliminates any concerns of slippage. It sharpened easily and holds the edge. Small yet solid and that provides a good sense of security. For the price I believe it can't be beat. Without question I will order another.
