M16-10Z description
Here is Kit Carson's M16® Every Day Carry (EDC) with our glass filled nylon InterFrame build. Our knife users told us, "We want an affordable work knife that we can give hard use without feeling guilty, and one that won't break us up if we leave it on a job site or drop it in the river."

We heard you. So we set about to make the Z EDC the best value in the work and sport knife world.

That starts with textured glass filled nylon scales and a dual stainless steel liner InterFrame. Assembled with glass filled nylon back spacers and Torx® fasteners, the result is amazingly rigid. Glass filled nylon offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents. Lubrous washers at the blade pivot and an adjustable pivot screw allow for perfect blade action.

The blade is AUS 8CR15MoV high-carbon stainless steel with a bead-blast finish, which gives an ideal combination of toughness and edge-holding ability in a work knife, and also allows easy field-sharpening.

The M16®-10Z features a dual hollow grind Tanto-style blade with Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges similar to our "Big Dog" M16 models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly.

Of course, if features the Carson Flipper, which speeds opening of the blade and acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.

The real breakthrough was our ability to engineer our patented* AutoLAWKS knife safety into all models, which automatically actuates when the blades are open, making these folders into virtual fixed blades when locked.

Add to these features the standard removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip plus the CRKT limited lifetime warranty, and you have one of the truly great knife values of our time.

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

This is my first CRKT and I purchased it based on a friends recommendation. He has an earlier model which has a wider blade and is a little longer. So far it has proven to be a really good knife. I really liked the safety on the blade lock mechanism, that is what sold it for me, and I have been having trouble with it but he said that after using it for awhile that would get easier to use.

I have to say, this is a very enjoyable knife. It's a great EDC knife. Can't think of a downside.

This is a great knife. I have had an earlier model for many years and used it very hard. It is still easy to keep sharp and is the envy of all my friends. I bought this one as a gift and I hope he gets as much use out of it as I do mine.

This is my second CRKT knife and my first Carson model. I haven't had much time to use this knife extensively but so far I love it. The build quality is exceptional. The opening action is smooth, the knife is very solid, and it was sharp out of the box. I'm certain this knife could take quite a beating. My only concern is that my knife arrived with some small flecks of what appears to be rust on the CRKT side of the blade.Apart from that, great knife

This is the third M-16 that I have purchased. I enjoy the operation and the design of the locking mechanism. The fact that it holds an edge even with the hard use that I put it through daily is even more important. I have given them as gifts to my sons. I give it a 5 rating.

I am very happy with the M-16. Light, rugged, and is very easy to open with the flipper and a flick of the wrist. I would buy another CRKT product for sure.

Great knife, I've had my model M-16 for several years. Bought a newer model and sent it to my son in the Navy. He's very pleased with its functionality and durability, hes and avid rock climber and outdoorsman as well. Keep up the great products. John Dubbelde

The only reply is awesome. Purchased for my son for Christmas and he loves it. Well made...

This knife truly is awesome. It holds an edge like no other, and as other people have said, it is actually sharp enough to shave with, out of the box. My only qualm with this knife is mine seemed to have some small rust spots on it when I received it. These spots have become a bit of a nuisance as far as asthetics go, but the functionality is beyond good.
