(M1604Z) M16 Z by Kit Carson
M1604Z description
For years, Kit Carson's M16® designs have been our most popular series. And our Z version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad. And they are exceptional values.

The hefty M16®-04Z and M16®-14Z Big Dogs offer larger dual grind Tanto-style blades. These are full-size working knives suited to large hands and heavy-duty tasks.

They use our very successful InterFrame construction, tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. We overbuild it for rigidity, using solid glass filled nylon back spacers. And we assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly.

We use our tough AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility, and offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges.

All models feature the Carson Flipper, which is not only an aid to opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.

This knife also features our automated liner safety innovation which 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 red button lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position. .

All styles have lubrous washers and a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip.

Think of the M16-Z as a Clydesdale—ready to rush a knight into battle or pull a beer wagon. Every day. Day after day.

*U.S. Patent No. 7,437,822

I have been carrying one of these m16 knives for about 9 years now. I absolutely love this knife. Although susceptible to rust it is still a phenomenal weapon/tool. I am going to be sending mine in for repairs because something is binding inside the handle where the blade pivots. But that is ok with me after all these years. I have never been very nice to my knife and it just keeps on going.

I've owned this knife for close to 3 years now. It has held up through everything I've put it through
