Description
CRM1604Z: M16-04Z - Designed by Kit Carson
CRKT
 
For years, Kit Carson's M16® designs have been our most popular series. And our Z version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad. And they are exceptional values. 

The hefty M16®-04Z and M16®-14Z Big Dogs offer larger dual grind Tanto-style blades. These are full-size working knives suited to large hands and heavy-duty tasks. 

They use our very successful InterFrame construction, tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. We overbuild it for rigidity, using solid glass filled nylon back spacers. And we assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly. 

We use our tough AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility, and offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges. 

All models feature the Carson Flipper, which is not only an aid to opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open. 

We've also incorporated our patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic knife safety into all models, which converts the M16 Z series into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked. 

All styles have lubrous washers and a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip. 

Think of the M16-Z as a Clydesdale—ready to rush a knight into battle or pull a beer wagon. Every day. Day after day. 

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

Cons: None
10 years of everyday use and going strong.
I have owned this knife for 10 years and not one complaint. I use it daily and its great. I have sharpened it a hand full of times in the past years. It has out lasted many of my other knives that I buy to compare it to. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Lock Type
Cons: Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Good strong working knife
My first flipper knife. I'm well impressed with the flipper action. Big and 'muscular' blade. Haven't used it to frequently to judge its edge retention. I find it a little heavy or maybe because its my first big folding knife. Downside is the pocket clip which feels a bit 'cheap'.

CRKT M16-04Z
I BOUGHT THIS KNIFE TODAY AT THE MALL FOR 60 DOLLARS. I THINK IT IS A VERY NICE KNIFE FOR THE MONEY .I HAVE 3 OTHERS IN THE M16 CATEGORY. I LIKE THE SIZE AND DESIGN . I DO HOWEVER QUESTION THE BLADE STEEL IF YOU CHECK OTHER KNIFE RETAILERS YOU WILL SEE IT HAS AUS4 AUS 6 AUS8 STEEL LISTED AS THE BLADE STEEL AND I DONT KNOW WHICH TO BELIEVE. FOR THE PRICE THOUGH IT SEEMS TO BE A QUALITY KNIFE . THE BLADE IS THICK THE LINER ADEQUATE THE HANDLE IS KIND OF NICE THE DESIGN IS ATTRACTIVE . I THINK IT IS A WINNER.
