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, 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. Please note: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.*U.S. Patent No. 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.
