M16-01T description
Kit Carson, designer of the M16® Series, became famous for his titanium frame M16 customs. True to Kit's custom design in all details, the production M16T models have been taken a step further with the addition of our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically turns the folders into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.

The handles, which form the open-build frame, are CNC machined from titanium. The result is a better strength-to-weight ratio than steel or aluminum, and an almost indestructible frame. The titanium frame is minimally ceramic bead-blast finished to enhance grip. The single 420J2 stainless steel locking liner with friction grooves provides positive locking.

The blade is AUS 8 stainless steel, chosen for edge retention and durability, in non-reflective fine bead blast finish. This steel can handle the most rugged cutting tasks and still be field sharpened.

Of course, the T models feature the signature "Carson Flipper" extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.

The M16®-01T is similar to our Every Day Carry M16 spear point models, but in a titanium build. It is just that much smaller, lighter and slimmer, making it easier to carry.

Faithful replicas. Premium quality. Precise. Smooth. Amazing value for those who want the ultimate M16. Kit Carson still marvels at how well our production titaniums compare to his customs.

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

I lost my previous CRKT knife and was lost without it. I love these knives. Their design is superb and the action so smooth. People think it's spring loaded.

I own several of these M16 knives and this is definetly the one I love the most. The slim profile, compact size, and blade quality are superb. Hopefully this one will be here for many years to come.

I have many knives, some hand built others that are not. This CRKT Kit Carson design is one of my absolute favorites. It is nice and light, has a substantial blade and holds an edge very well. If you want a solid knife that you can carry use everyday I would highly recommend you consider this model. Gary Branson West, MO

I'm as big a fan of this knife as all the other posters here. It's light weight and smooth action make it the equal of many custom knives I've handled. The titanium is both amazingly light and surprisingly strong. The only thing I'd change is the same think another reviewer mentioned: the AUTO-LAWKS feature is annoying. It is very effective but tiresome to fumble with for quick cuts, especially in wet conditions with tired hands. The automatic aspect is ingenious but in my opinion should be an option
