M16-14D description
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.

M16®-14D Desert Big Dog has an aluminum frame M16 in desert camo. The contoured handles of 6061 T6 aluminum are hard anodized Desert Tan. The 3.875" (98 mm) AUS 8 stainless steel blade, chosen for edge retention and durability, receives a highly corrosion-resistant Desert Tan non-reflective titanium nitride coating. It has a Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge to cut through nets, webbing and vegetation quickly.

It also features our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically turns the folder into a fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.

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. Please note: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.*U.S. Patent Nos. 5,596,808 and 7,437,822

This is an amazing knife. I didn't leave the house with out it, besides when i had to go to school. The blade held a razors edge even after months of abuse, and more than one deer butchering. The only thing wrong with this knife is the fact that it was stolen from me from my campsite.

I have carried this blade for 8 years now. It has been with me through both tours in Iraq as an Infantry Marine. Other than occasionally sharpening and bi-monthly breakdown for cleaning and oiling, this knife has performed FLAWLESSLY. I have used this knife in every way imaginable and it has held up to whatever abuse I can throw at it. I have relied on CRKT knives and tools for over a decade and will continue to do so. Thank you for such quality tools.

I am stationed on a remote FOB in Eastern Afghanistan. I use this knife for everything. With its quick opening and sharp blade it is the only knife I ever have in my pocket. CRKT knives have been the only knives I use.

I have always been a fan of CRKT knives and they always hold up great. I got this knife about a year ago and i love it, very strong and well built, worth every penny. Holds an edge very well and sharpens up nicely. It has the great feel and size of large fixed blade but is still a great folding blade. Now I feel naked with out when i leave the house.

Favorite knife of all time. Got mine in Baghdad in 2004, and just in time, too... Holds an edge very well, and extremely versatile. There's something about the texture of the handles that is difficult to explain
