Description
CRM1613ZM: Carson M16-13ZM Folder
CRKT
 
The service men and women of the coalition forces in the Middle East and Afghanistan require cutting tools that can stand up to the harsh demands of the desert. Our Carson Desert Tactical Folders have been developed specifically to blend into the desert environment. 

Our M16®-13ZM Military model features our super rigid InterFrame build with 420J2 stainless steel liners, threaded stainless steel back spacers, and Desert Camo pattern glass filled nylon scales. The blade is non-reflective bead-blast finished AUS 4 stainless steel. It blends and almost disappears in the desert. 

This model features a 3.50" (89 mm) spear point blade and weighs only 3.5 oz. (99 g). It is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum. It comes with a removable clothing/gear clip. 

It also features our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically turns the folder into a fixed blade when the blade is opened and locked. 

One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of precision tolerances and lubrous washers at the blade pivot. The dual ambidextrous thumb studs with checkered surfaces provide instant access in any circumstance. 

The blade has Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges. 

*U.S. Patent Nos. 5,596,808 and 7,437,822

Cons: Blade Material, None
Checks Most All the Boxes
I have been collecting knives for many years, but I only recently turned my attention to crkt carson m16 knives. I have to say this knife was quite surprising in its solid build quality. For me, this knife checks most of my boxes in that it has just the right size, weight, feel in the hand, ease of use, and looks. It has quickly become my primary edc when wearing jeans. This knife deserves a higher grade blade steel and perhaps titanium locking liners. I think most knife folks would gladly pay more for those improvements to an already very good knife.
