Description
CRM1610KZ: M16-10KZ Tanto - Designed by Kit Carson
CRKT
 
Here is Kit Carson's M16 Every Day Carry (EDC) with our glass filled nylon InterFrame build. Our knife users told us, "We want an affordable work knife that we can give hard use without feeling guilty, and one that won't break us up if we leave it on a job site or drop it in the river." 

We heard you. So we set about to make the Z EDC the best value in the work and sport knife world. 

That starts with textured glass filled nylon scales and a dual 2CR13 stainless steel liner InterFrame. Assembled with glass filled nylon back spacers and Torx fasteners, the result is amazingly rigid. Glass filled nylon offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents. Lubrous washers at the blade pivot and an adjustable pivot screw allow for perfect blade action. 

The blade is 8CR15MoV high-carbon stainless steel which gives an ideal combination of toughness and edge-holding ability in a work knife, and also allows easy field-sharpening. 

The M16-10KZ features a dual hollow grind Tanto-style blade with Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges similar to our "Big Dog" M16 models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly. It has a black EDP blade, black frame and hardware for a non-flective tactical look. 

Of course, it features the Carson Flipper, which speeds opening of the blade and acts as a blade guard when the blade is open. 

The real breakthrough was our ability to engineer our patented* AutoLAWKS knife safety into all models, which automatically actuates when the blades are open, making these folders into virtual fixed blades when locked. 

Add to these features the standard removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip plus the CRKT limited lifetime warranty, and you have one of the truly great knife values of our time.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Lock Type
Cons: None
Pretty good little knife.
For the price, this was a pretty good knife. I like the extra safety feature on the liner lock, and the blade sharpened up very nice. I got it as a back up for my regular EDC and it's worked great. My only gripe is that the blade is a little wobbly. But, overall, this was a good knife, as are most of the ones I own from CRKT.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Nice knife
The knife doesn't open as easy as I would like it to. I have to give it an extra flick of my wrist. Don't care for the second locking mechanism. But besides that I like the feel of the handle and the blade holds a good edge.
