CRM1601S: M16-01S - Spear Point - Designed by Kit Carson
The M16 –SS EDC Series - A proven knife design platform made simple, made tough, and made affordable. 

If you are a fan of the Kit Carson designed M16 tactical folding knives you are going to want to check out these stainless steel (SS) variations. 

Handles are shaped and contoured in the same confident grip M16 style, but are crafted of a retro flavored stainless steel. Handles are all finished in a classic black oxide finish. These folders are available in several blade style options including cutting edge configurations, each with their own user advantages to offer. Blades also feature the Carson Flipper for quick and convenient blade actuation—and the flipper doubles as an effective blade guard in the open position. Blade lock up is secured through the traditional framelock mechanism. 

The M16-SS EDC Series is a straight up, "no frills" every day carry folder design that kicks butt in pure performance and value.
  • Stainless steel pocket clip is movable and provides for convenient carry/access.

Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Cons: Blade Sharpness
Good knife
Good knife overall, except it had a hard time cutting A4 printing paper straight out of box (clean cut after a bit of sharping). The flip works after a few try without using my wrist, and the tip is very pointy.

Great LEO knife
This is a fantastic knife for any LEO.When you're carrying a loaded duty belt it get's heavy.The great thing about this M16 is while it fits nice in hand you're getting a 3 plus inch blade at only 2.6 ounces. :) The slim closed profile of the knife can easily clip into a pocket holding other gear such as a wallet and you forget it's there.Although the blade steel isn't a super steel,it's easy to resharpen to a razor edge.Deployment speed and ease is outstanding. Knife Center Rocks!
