CRM1612ZE: M16-12ZE E.R. - Tanto - Orange Handle - Combo Edge - Designed by Kit Carson
Emergency Services Personnel take their jobs seriously so it only makes sense that they expect the same out of their tools. By taking feedback from service professionals, we took several favored designs and enhanced their performance qualities even more through materials and features geared for heavy use and tough service.
The renowned Kit Carson designed M16® knife series provides several optimum professional tool platforms from which we further developed products for your specialized needs. Whether it's the M16®-12ZE, the M16®-13ZE, or the M16®-14ZER—know that you can count on their full potential when you need it most. From the orange brightly colored reinforced glass filled nylon scales to the AutoLAWKS™ blade safety, they are ready for tough duty. All of the knives also have a tungsten carbide window breaker, seat belt cutter, and serrated edges for superior rope and fiber cutting, setting the tone as an industry standard for emergency service tools.
We think the E.R. Knives series is the best value available for daily duty carry.
- The folders feature a seat belt cutter on the Carson Flipper, plus a removable stainless steel clip and AutoLAWKS safety.
- We added a tungsten carbide window breaker to the folders to make it easy to shatter car side windows in one fast impact.

A very widely used EDC steel, AUS-8 can take a very nice edge while also maintaining moderate edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.
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.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
