CRM1613SFG: Carson M16 Special Forces - Tanto Combo Edge - G10 Handle
Columbia River Knife & Tool

Special knives designed with military special forces in mind, the M16-SF's are "folding fixed blades." G10 InterFrame build.

These knives share a unique design offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. The dual grind Tanto blades were specified because they offer maximum strength. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— very rare in folding knives.

Blade, frame and hardware are non-reflective tactical black. Blades receive black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit’s trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. On all models, one-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth.

All SF models feature our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety, which turns the folders into virtual fixed blades automatically.

Our aluminum frame SFs feature contoured scales of textured, hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum, with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without gloves, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and premium AUS 8 stainless steel blades. Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges are standard

These G10 models feature scales of black G10, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and premium 8Cr14 stainless steel blades with our exclusive Combination Veff™ Serrations. G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight, and superior insulating properties.

M16®-13SFG Slim Profile G10. This model is similar in features and dimensions to the M16-13SF.

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces use.

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.

Cons: None
Serious value for the money
I receive my CRKT folder and was extremely impressed with the solid craftsmanship and quality. It was very sharp and ready to go right out of the box. After a short break-in period, I was very impressed with the Autolawks functionality (didn't initially like the two-step unlock, but now like it very much). If you're looking for a legal folder (max blade length here in Colorado is 3.5") to carry when your CCW is prohibited, this is one great knife for the price.
