The CRKT® Carson Desert Special Forces Folders:

Our value-priced premium-quality G10 folders are an exceptional line

of military knives for desert environments.

In the process of developing our line of Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®)

Carson special forces G10 M16® and M21™ models, it became apparent that there was a

demand for these models from coalition forces serving in desert environments. So here are

three models with Desert Tan blade and scales.

Just like their black tactical counterparts, these knives share a unique design offering a

combination of Carson SF series features requested by military procurement specialists. All

have combined Razor-Sharp and patented1 Veff™ Serrated edges. The open build allows two

Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— up to now rare in folding knives.

Blade and scales are non-reflective Desert Tan. Premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel blades

receive 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.

The open InterFrame build uses Desert Tan scales of G10, and stainless steel liners with

friction grooves. G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight, and

the insulating properties which make it cooler in heat and warmer in cold than metal.

All models feature our exclusive patented2 AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically turns

the folders into fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.

M16®-13DSFG Slim Profile G10. This model features a 3.50” (89 mm) dual grind Tanto

blade and is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum. It weighs only 4.0

ounces.

M16®-14DSFG Big Dog G10. This is our hefty utility version, with a 3.875” (98 mm) dual

grind Tanto blade and full-size handle with butt pommel. It weighs 5.9 oz. (167 g).

M21™-14DSFG G10. This is the choice for those who prefer the M21 deep-bellied blade

shape. The blade is also 3.875” (98 mm) long, and the handle is the same size and shape as on

the larger M16-14DSFG.

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts

or webbing— tip up, tip down, left or right. (Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up

in-pocket carry.)

They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces desert use. Pricing

is equally special, with an amazing MSRP of $59.99 for the smaller model, and just

$79.99 for the larger models.
