Description
CRM1614T: M16-14T Big Dog
Columbia River
 
Kit Carson, designer of the M16® Series, became famous for his titanium frame M16 customs. True to Kit's custom design in all details, the production M16T models have been taken a step further with the addition of our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically turns the folders into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.

The handles, which form the open-build frame, are CNC machined from 6AL4V titanium. The result is a better strength-to-weight ratio than steel or aluminum, and an almost indestructible frame. The titanium frame is minimally ceramic bead-blast finished to enhance grip. The single 420J2 stainless steel locking liner with friction grooves provides positive locking.

The blade is AUS 8 stainless steel, chosen for edge retention and durability, in non-reflective fine bead blast finish, with a Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge. This steel can handle the most rugged cutting tasks and still be field sharpened.

Of course, it also features the signature "Carson Flipper" extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.

The "Big Dog" M16®-14T is a hefty, full-size working knife with a dual grind modified Tanto-style blade.

One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of lubrous washers at the blade pivot. The ambidextrous thumb stud with checkered surface provides instant access in any circumstance. It features a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip.

Faithful replicas. Premium quality. Precise. Smooth. Amazing value for those who want the ultimate M16. Kit Carson still marvels at how well our production titaniums compare to his customs.

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

About the Knife Designer
Kit Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, is a retired professional soldier, rising to the level of Sergeant Major. He has made knives for 30 years and has been a full-time knifemaker since 1993. He is a voting member of the Knifemakers’ Guild. Kit has been an avid hunter and fisherman for over 40 years, growing up enjoying the woods and trout streams in the mountains of north Georgia. About his philosophy of knife design, he says: “I strive to follow form and function in the knives I design and build. My reputation has been built around solid working knives, both fixed blade and folders. All the time spent outdoors as a young man and the time spent around the world with the Army has strongly influenced the knives I create.” Nothing reflects this approach more than the Carson Design of our M16 series, which is built for function, not to follow fads. This highly successful knife series was named one of the Top 10 Factory Tactical Folders of the Decade by Blade magazine. The M16-14M recently won a comparison test conducted by Germany’s Messer magazine.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Excellent Knife
Im a contractor and use a knife frequently during the day. It is LARGER than most people want for EDC. However, it is solid, and feels like a fixed blade knife when open. When closed, it fits in your pocket like the smaller knives that most people carry. I would purchase the same knife again.

Big Plus for the Big Dog
I have grown to really respect Columbia River knives, but this particular series produces my favorite models. I own at least one of each, and carry this particular knife on a daily basis. To have a knife of this size that is relatively light is a real plus. I highly recommend this knife as a best choice for tactical personal carry.

Sweet Knife
My girlfriend just got this for me for our anniversary, and its a awesome knife. Very smooth satisfying mechanical mechanism with a very intimidating sound when deployed. Solid lockup with no play, and very fast easy deployment. Absolutely superb fit and finish, and fairly sharp edge. The only complaint I have is that the knurling on the thumb stud and retention screw is a little sloppy, but that's just me being overly picky.. Excellent knife though, just wish they offered it in plain edge too.
