This knife offers 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.
Blade, frame and hardware are nonreflective tactical black. Blades receive a coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit's trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard as is one-hand opening and closing which is quick and smooth.
All SF models feature our exclusive patented AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety. AutoLAWKS™, is 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.
The M16-14SFGL is equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces use.
As a left handed knife user, I found this knife exceptionally useful. I have several folders, but this is the only one that I could find that was comfortable for left handed use. With my other knives, I am forced to either switch to my weak hand to close them, or risk cutting myself with an awkward grip.
This knife performs just as well as its right-handed counterpart
