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.
Perfect pocket knife Great quality, easy to deploy razor sharp..

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.

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.
this is the best knife i have great design looks good feels good and well made
