(M16-13ZLEK) M16-13ZLEK - Kit Carson Design
M16-13ZLEK description
We have produced Kit Carson's popular M16® line in many variations over the past decade. Our glass filled nylon version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.

Our new M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid glass filled nylon back spacers. We assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners.

For professional use, we've added a seat belt cutter to the Carson Flipper, and a tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt. Automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife.

All components receive a tough tactical black coating. The Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and creates a blade guard when open. We use our premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades, which have Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation.

All three models are fitted with our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically makes them into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.

M16®-13ZLEK. This mid-size M16 with spear point blade is a perennial favorite, with all the trademark Kit Carson features. A black stainless steel two position pocket/gear clip is included.

Full professional features. Non-reflective black finish. Exceptional affordability. Kit Carson rides again.

I keep this knife in my bag everyday for LE. I used the carbide tip to break the glass on vehicle last weekend where the driver crashed due to a medical emergency. Hit the glass in the bottom corner near the door frame where the glass doesn't flex so it will break first hit. Breaking the glass there also helps prevent your hand going through the glass when you strike with your adrenaline pumping.

This knife is amazing, and the quality is great. I'd recommend this knife to anyone who's looking for a good all around knife to carry.

I work as an EMT and purchased this knife to use as a duty knife. It is the perfect size and has all the features necessary (glass breaker, seatbelt cutter) for an ambulance crew who often arrives on scene before a rescue engine. The knife feels sturdy and well built, opens and closes smoothly and can be operated easily with one hand. Highly recommend as a duty knife for any firefighters/EMTs looking for a work knife.

This is a great knife I have purchased others in the Kit Carson Line and found them too small for my hand. This one is perfect, giving me complete control of the blade when extended. And if using the Glass Breaker, the handle projects out of the fist far enough that I'm not hitting the glass with my fist. There is also sufficient leverage provided by the longer handle when using the Belt Cutter. Carry it everywhere. lowell Dallas, Texas

Just a knife? No way Great to pocket carry and had a chance to use the seatbelt cutter. Worked like a charm. Hope that I never to have to use the glass breaker, but I feel secure that if I have to, It'll work. Dave, Cols, OH

The M16-13ZLEK is my forth CRKT. I also have a Fire Spark, M21 and m16-10Z. The M16-13ZLEK has become my every day carry knife. I am a photographer specializing in auto, moto and velo action photos. I have been the first responder on too many occasions when something goes wrong. With the M16-13ZLEK, I hope I will be better prepared to handle the next emergency, but I pray I will never have to put the carbide tip or seat belt cutter to the test. Other reasons I like the knife are that is the perfect size, right between my fist filling M21-14sfg and the too tiny m16-10z. Living in Cali, I am a bit nervous carrying the Fire Spark, as there is no definitive word on whether the Outburst mechanism is legal in this state.
