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 automatic safety, which turns the folder into a virtual fixed blades automatically.

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.

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.

I bought this knife a while back an because it was winter, I haven't really had a chance to use it. It's a great knife and very, very sharp. The autolawks feature is great and it does just what it

Very high quality, excellent knife. I've been though a few knives in the last year or so and none compare to this. I don't plan on needing another knife for a long time.

I recently purchased this knife and I'm very pleased with it. It came out of the box razor sharp. If you want a large folding knife you can't go wrong with this one. I use a knife daily to cut rope, wire and plastic banding on lumber. My old serrated knife would hang up when I used it but this one with the Veff serrations cuts through everything with ease. It's on the heavy side but for me that's not an issue.

I purchased this knife for my son as a Christmas present to take with him on his deployment. He loves this knife, and has already said, he will definitely purchase other products. He was very impressed with the quality and how light it is. A very nice gift for any man in your life.

A rock climbing guide for many years, more than ten years ago I approached the President of CRKT about creating a knife specifically for climbers. The project remains to be executed, but at the time he really liked my idea of creating a knife that, for safety, cuts on the pull, like a katana is supposed to. I described angled serrations, and I am flattered to see the idea long since materialized. This latest rendition is the best tactical folder in my collection, but could be improved. It's a bit heavy for EDC. Climbing mountain walls and carrying concealed for years you learn that by watching the grams the kilos take care of themselves. Keep the hefty blade, bit thin the scale walls. Titanium maybe? Creating an optional setting to use the small red safety lock or not would also be good.
