M16-13SF description
Our aluminum InterFrame build SF folders 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®-13SF Slim Profile Aluminum 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 aluminum frame SF features contoured scales of textured, hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum, with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without gloves, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and premium AUS 8 stainless steel blades. Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges are standard.

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.

This is my most favorite EDC that I have. I love the design, how sharp it is, its weight, and how smoothly the blade opens up. My only gripe was that I had to buy a tool set to modify the position of the clip (blade up). Wish the screws on the clip used regular Philips head screws instead of the star/hex type.

I had bought this knife and was amazed when i took it out of the box. CRKT sure does have a quality and well made knifes. The action on the blade is as smooth as butter.The blade was also very sharp.(factory edge) I could shave with it if i really wanted to. CRKT keep up the good work

I bought this knife last year and loved it. Gave it to a friend and now I just bought the M16-10 on accident because I thought it was this one. I'm going to return it and re order this knife. I love this one so much, very well made and durable. It works well for my on the job needs and my every day carry/self deffence needs as well. Thank you CRKT for making such great knives. Bryce
