The service men and women of the coalition forces in the Middle East and Afghanistan require cutting tools that can stand up to the harsh demands of the desert. Our Carson Desert Tactical Folders have been developed specifically to blend into the desert environment.
Our M16®-13ZM Military model features our super rigid InterFrame build with 420J2 stainless steel liners, threaded stainless steel back spacers, and Desert Camo pattern glass filled nylon scales. The blade is non-reflective bead-blast finished AUS 4 stainless steel. It blends and almost disappears in the desert.
This model features a 3.50" (89 mm) spear point blade and weighs only 3.5 oz. (99 g). It is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum. It comes with a removable clothing/gear clip.
It also features our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™, the Lake and Walker Knife Safety innovation taken to the next level. AutoLAWKS™ automatically sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety, so the locking liner is less likely to disengage during use. To close the knife, pull the AutoLAWKS™ red button lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position.
One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of precision tolerances and lubrous washers at the blade pivot. The dual ambidextrous thumb studs with checkered surfaces provide instant access in any circumstance.
The blade has Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges.
This a very good knife for the use of cutting my meat, I only use that for meat cutting. I have many knifes that only are use for different choice , so they use according to what the need of the job. This the best knife I have for my use. A rating of ten on my list and for the price it's a great deal, Thanks for a great knife, you,Mr. Cantu

This knife is amazing. After 5 years of hard use in the Marine Corps it still cuts through anything I throw at it. It's lightweight and in your pocket your barely remember it's there. Lockup is tight and action is lightning fast. Some guys in my unit have automatics but there is really no need when deployment on this flipper is that fast and easy. Blade design is great for slicing or piercing and width is just right. CRKT definitely has the best bang for buck of any knife company out there today.

This is by far the best folding knife I've ever owned. This was my first crkt knife and I love it. The blade is extremely well honed and the handle/mechanisms are well made. The flipper which opens the knife has perfect tension so that it will not open accidentally, but when just enough pressure is placed on it, it flies right open, no matter what angle it is being held. It is also impossible to close the knife accidentally. I carry this knife daily and have yet to find a task it can't do. My next knife will definitely be from crkt. Also, it shipped very quickly.
