CRm1614zer: M16-14ZER - Kit Carson Design
Columbia River
At the request of those in the emergency services field, we have modified one of our most successful designs for these rugged applications. 

Handles have scales of tough Zytel® in high-visibility orange. We have chosen tough blade steels to withstand abuse, and gave the M16-14ZER a polished finish to resist corrosion. Finally, we have priced it to be as affordable as possible. 

M16®-14Z E.R. New this year is the "Big Dog" M16. At the request of rescue professionals, we've taken Kit Carson's popular M16-14 and added a seat belt cutter to the flipper and a tungsten carbide window breaker to the butt. 

Automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife. This hefty 6.2-ounce knife has a large 3.75"-long Triple-Point Combination Serrated Tanto blade that is able to tackle virtually any emergency task. 

If you're a rescue professional, we think the M16-14ZER is the best value available for daily duty carry.

New work knife
I purchased the M16-14ZER to use on the job doing maintenance at a multiple family dwelling. I like the seat belt cutter for wire ties, the blade is real sharp and the serrations cut rope and twine easily. I mainly use the knife for opening boxes and packaging. The bright orange handle is the main reason I wanted the knife as it is highly visible and will not be easy to miss while cleaning up the work area before moving on to my next call. The deployment on this knife is very smooth and the lock up is very solid, there is no play or wiggle. The detent holds the blade closed until you deploy it.The blade is perfectly centered in the handle. I am on the fence about the glass breaker as I have not had the chance to use it and hope I never will. I also like that that the blade finish is polished rather than bead blasted, this makes it harder for rust to get a foothold on the finish, a light coat of CLP does not hurt either. All in all this knife rates 5 stars.

A great Tool
I keep this knife in the center console of my car. I only replace my old emergency knife after thoroughly testing this M-16. I love the easy opening and the 4 position pocket clip. The glass breaker and seatbelt cutter work great. My favorite feature is the blade itself for the shape is oerfect for defense.
