CRM4015: M40-15 Spear Point with Veff Serrations, Designed by Kit Carson

CRKT

Discovered in a private collection and brought to life. The late Kit Carson’s memory is felt strongly throughout the industry—it shows in the absolute reverence the knife world has for his M16 and M21 designs. The M40 everyday carry folding knife is based on a legacy design. This version is reimagined with a Deadbolt lock, marrying classic design with contemporary innovation. Kit's legacy just keeps growing.

Kit Carson turned out a host of game-changing knives from his bench in Vine Grove, Kentucky. The M40 is based on one of his relatively unknown custom designs. In classic Kit style, the four-inch stainless steel spear point blade is all business. It's been given Veff Serrations for powerful cord and rope cutting capability and is met with a glass-reinforced nylon and aluminum bolster handle that's both strong and surprisingly lightweight. The magic happens when you fire it up. The deployment action is quick and smooth with a flipper and IKBS ball bearing pivot system. It locks into place with Deadbolt and will stay there—enduring incredible stress and weight—until it's simply closed with the prominent button.

The M40 is well-deserving of a spot in this legendary lineage.

How the Deadbolt Lock Works

Steel bolts interlock with the blade when it's deployed to yield incredible strength. A prominent button sits at the pivot point for simple, intuitive disengagement without fingers crossing the path of the blade.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Cons: None
Fun knife
A really fun knife to handle. The deadbolt locking mechanism allows you to open OR CLOSE the knife with a simple flick of the wrist. You can even do both in one motion. After many weeks of enduring this childish abuse, the knife did start to show signs of blade play but that was easily fixed by tightening a couple screws. It's a handsome knife, large, yet its slim profile makes it feel less burdensome than one would expect when carrying it. I cannot speak for the blade's overall quality as I have used it for only small tasks but I would recommend it based on my experience.
