The CRKT® M16® Carson Special Forces Folders:

Special knives for professional use. These “folding fixed blades” with

true hilts are available in aluminum or G10 InterFrame build.

These knives from Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) 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. Two sizes are available, in your choice of aluminum InterFrame build

or G10 InterFrame build.

Blade, frame and hardware are nonreflective tactical black. Blades receive black titanium

nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit’s trademark dual checkered thumb

studs are standard. On all models, one-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth.

All SF models feature our exclusive patented1 AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety, which turns

the folders into virtual fixed blades automatically.

Our aluminum frame SFs feature contoured scales of hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum,

with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without gloves, stainless steel liners

with friction grooves, and premium AUS 8 stainless steel blades. Combined Razor-Sharp and

Triple-Point™ Serrated edges are standard.

M16®-13SF Slim Profile Aluminum. This model features a 3.50” (89 mm) dual grind

Tanto blade and is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum.

M16®-14SF Big Dog Aluminum. This is our hefty utility version, with a 3.875” (98 mm)

dual grind Tanto blade and full-size handle with butt pommel.

Our G10 models feature scales of black G10, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and

premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel blades with our Combination patented2 Veff™ Serrations.

G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight, and superior insulating

properties.

M16®-13SFG Slim Profile G10. This model is similar in features and dimensions to the

M16-13SF.

M16®-14SFG Big Dog G10. Again, this model is similar to the M16-14SF with slightly

more heft.

All knives in this series are 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.

MSRP is $129.99. The M16-13SFG is only $59.99 MSRP, while the M16-14SFG is an
