In police work, your knife is an important second line of defense. These three M16® models in black and blue dress are designed for performance and professional appearance with Special Response Teams in mind. They offer all the features of Kit Carson's very popular aluminum-handled M16 series, plus a dark finish with low reflectance.
The M16-13LE model is identical in construction to the popular CRKT aluminum M16, offering the same sure-grip contoured handles of 6061 T6 aluminum, hard anodized in Law Enforcement Blue. The stainless steel locking liners with friction grooves are also black, and give positive locking with limited access, for superior safety.
The M16®-13LE features a spear point blade with a false top edge. It is a slim profile design that is ideal for a variety of carry positions.
The blade is imprinted with Gary Paul Johnston's 1* (one-ass-to-risk) reminder logo and features an AUS 8 stainless steel blade, chosen for edge retention and durability. Black titanium nitride coating gives exceptional corrosion resistance. Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges for rugged cutting tasks that break down standard cutting edges.
It also features the Carson Flipper extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.
One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of lubrous washers at the blade pivot. The ambidextrous thumb stud with checkered surface provides instant access in any circumstance.
This knife also features our automated liner safety innovation which 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 red button lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position.
It has a removable black stainless steel clothing/gear clip.
