M16-13SFG description
The Special Forces G10 models share a unique design offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. The dual grind Tanto blades were specified because they offer maximum strength. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— very rare in folding knives.

The M16®-13SFG Slim Profile G10 features a 3.50" (89 mm) dual grind Tanto blade and is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum.

Blade, frame and hardware are non-reflective tactical black. The blade receives a black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit's trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth.

It also features our exclusive patented (1) AutoLAWKS automatic safety, which turns the folder into a virtual fixed blade automatically.

Our G10 model features scales of black G10, stainless steel liners with friction grooves and a premium 8Cr14 stainless steel blade with our Combination patented (2) Veff Serrations. G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight, and superior insulating properties.

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces use.

The M16 13SFG was my first CRKT and when i bought it through Gander Mt. i wasnt so sure about quality considering how light it was, but i've had it for somewhere around a year and it has not failed me once. The grip is comfortable to hold, and the blade is satisfying to open. Plus, after about 3 minutes of tinkering and removel of the clip, the M16 makes for a great throwing knife

Though its name is M16 it resembles a AK47 its throgh hell and back durability and reliability is comforting. My only complaint would be the pocket clip being a little stiff but it will probably work in. It does take a little bit to get used to the AutoLAWKS™ but it is very stout when locked. Very happy with the knife overall.

I love this knife in every way but I have once question. The video for this knife seems to show that while holding it in one hand a vigorous push of the Carson flipper with one's finger will fully open and lock the knife without having to flick one's wrist or use the other hand. When I try to open it the same way the knife only opens about 80 degrees, I either have to flip my wrist or use my other hand to open the knife the rest of the way until it locks in place. Or do I have to flick my wrist at the same moment that I push down on the flipper?

Very well made. This is my second M16. I purchased my first years ago and I can't recall an instant where my first M16 failed me. I was happy to get this 13SFG for X-mas.

Very good, sturdy knife. Opens quickly. Love the tactical black blade. I will say its hard to close if you have small hands.

My third CRKT purchase, the M16-13SFG is a bad to the bone knife that looks great and functions better. VERY smooth action and super solid when opened, it truly feels like a fixed blade. The autoLAWKS feature is great. My only issue with the knife is one of the serration tips broke off, but the way I use it any other knife would be junk by now...
