M16-14SFG description
The Special Forces G10 models share a unique design offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. The dual grind Tanto blades were specified because they offer maximum strength. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— very rare in folding knives.

The M16®-14SFG Big Dog G10 is our hefty utility version, with a 3.875" (98 mm) dual grind Tanto blade and full-size handle with butt pommel.

Blade, frame and hardware are non-reflective tactical black. The blade receives a black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit's trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth.

It also features our exclusive patented (1) 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..

Our G10 model features scales of black G10, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and a premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel blade with our Combination patented (2) Veff Serrations. G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight and superior insulating properties.

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces use.

Excellent knife to cut almost anything I run across in my line of work. Came out of the box with a sharp edge ready to go, I can definitely see this knife being something I keep on my person for a long time to come. Gabriel

I am very happy with this knife. I keep coming back to CRKT knives and this one doesn't disappoint. Handle has good grip and the "hand guards" keep your hand from accidentally sliding towards the blade...rare on folding knives this size. Kyle

My favorite knife. I've had it at least 5 years. Consider myself a "journeyman" knife owner having samplings from CRKT. Spyderco, Ka Bar, Cold Steel and other. This is usually the knife that ends up in my back pocket due to its quick opening, followed closely by my Spyderco Endura. Blade sharpens easily, and retains edge well. I touch it up with a stone once a month or so. Great for hiking as a complement to my Ka Bar BK2 and BK 9 (necker). Very nice knife.

I bought this knife to replace a Kershaw I had purchased a while ago that was pretty beat up after being sharpened a few times, needless to say, this knife is far superior This knife is very sharp right out of the box and durable as well. The blade is very thick, and the autolawk is a great addition as my liner lock on my old knife had worn out Would definitely recommend this knife

I bought my m16-14sf from a kid on the street in Baghdad in 2004 for 5 dollars. Best five bucks I ever spent. I have carried it every day since. Blade needs a little work but I'm never without it.(30 years USMC)

Amazing knife, It is my EDC for deployment, the blade is solid and maintains its edge excellently. I own multiple CRKT knives now and this is my favorite.

This is the finest knife I have ever owned. In my house we observe Rule #9 - and I have owned dogs and princes. This is King Great heft, perfect action - even when in dirty conditions - rock solid lock. I can't say enough about the reliability of the LAWKS system. And the best feature - the blade

ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING This knife is too good. I purchased mine at half price on amazon. I cant believe that this knife is as good as it is. When I purchased I thought it was just a cheapo. I was so wrong. Its kept its edge for over a year. My only gripe is the LAWKS. Its a good idea , but I decided to remove it. I RECOMMEND THIS KNIFE 100%

I'm a tactical medic and I bought this knife to use at work. It fits my needs perfectly and is an excellent knife for anyone. Only complaint is the autolawks is hard to disengage when wearing gloves and only having one hand to open or close the knife. Other than that its great and I recommend it to anyone, especially anyone in a tactical environment.
