Emergency Services Personnel take their jobs seriously so it only makes sense that they expect the same out of their tools. By taking feedback from service professionals, we took several favored designs and enhanced their performance qualities even more through materials and features geared for heavy use and tough service.
The renowned Kit Carson designed M16® knife series provides several optimum professional tool platforms from which we further developed products for your specialized needs. Whether it's the M16®-12ZE, the M16®-13ZE, or the M16®-14ZERknow that you can count on their full potential when you need it most. From the orange brightly colored reinforced glass filled nylon scales to the AutoLAWKS™ blade safety, they are ready for tough duty. All of the knives also have a tungsten carbide window breaker, seat belt cutter, and serrated edges for superior rope and fiber cutting, setting the tone as an industry standard for emergency service tools.
We think the E.R. Knives series is the best value available for daily duty carry.
Carry the knife every day and although i do not use it in a works setting I find it's ease of use, sharpness, locking safe=ty features, wieght and length to be perfect for a daily carrying knife

This knife became my daily carry knife. I like the size and the ease of opening. The orange handle is a nice option. I am becoming a fan of tanto style blades this one of the few folders I own with that style of blade it is handy.
