CRM1614ZLEK: Carson M16-14ZLEK
Columbia River

We have produced Kit Carson's popular M16® line in many variations over the past decade. Our Zytel® version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.

Our M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured Zytel® scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid Zytel back spacers. We assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners.

For professional use, we've added a seat belt cutter to the Carson Flipper, and a tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt. Automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife.

All components receive a tough tactical black coating. The Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and creates a blade guard when open. We use our premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades, which have Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation.

All three models are fitted with our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically makes them into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.

M16®-14ZLEK. The "Big Dog" M16 is a hefty 6.2-ounce knife with a 3.75"- long Tanto blade that is able to tackle virtually any emergancy task. This larger model features a four-position clip, allowing carry on belts or webbing— tip up, tip down, left or right. Please note: These knives are not designed for tip-up inpocket carry.

Full professional features. Non-reflective black finish. Exceptional affordability. Kit Carson rides again.

This is a great quality, great looking knife. It is large and a little heavy, but that adds to the bossness. Get this knife to become a boss. QED

CRKT Carson M16-14LEK Rescue Folder
I use this daily and for EMS call outs. I really like the size and shape of the blade, and the weight and balance of this knife. The locking mechanism is totally solid. Super quick smooth opening! I like the way the belt cutter is designed. Feels great when held in the hand and fits great in the pocket as well. All round Great Knife for everyday use and excels in call outs. Very Happy with this knife :) Cheers

Good Knife
Thanks for making a good product. I was excited to take this knife to work and use it to break down boxes. I was not disappointed and it performed 100% better than the box cutters/ scissors that I was used to using. An added bonus is the glass breaker and seat belt cutter for emergency situations. This is a good blade to keep with you in your car. Also, the size and weight of the blade support its emergency functions(especially the glass breaker). The one draw back is that the studded tip makes it difficult to quickly draw out of your pocket. If you need it right away, it possible that the tip could tear your pocket or prick your hand if you are not careful. You may want to keep one in a special compartment in your car. In my opinion, this blade is not good for self-defense, unless you already have it drawn. Maybe it is possible to overcome this, but I haven't figured it out yet. The lock system is a great feature.
