Nice Light to Medium Use EDC Knife
I purchased the CRKT M16-01KS for light to medium duty every day use for work and the times that surround that. The look is slim and sleek. Fits the 5th pocket on a pair of jeans perfectly. When opened and in use, the spear shaped blade keeps a low profile when using in public, but big enough to suit my needs. Sharp straight out of the box to go right into action. I've used it on nothing larger than paper board boxes and the hollow grind edge still slices a perfect smooth cut off a tomato for a lunchtime bagel sandwich and it halves that bagel cleanly. The flipper opens the quick and smooth. Only draw back I've encountered is the frame lock which holds the blade tight is a bit awkward to engage to close the blade. Otherwise, I find it perfect my needs.
