The M21™ G10 series offers up unsurpassed cutting power featuring deep-bellied spear point blades in the front, and lightweight, insulating, tough G10 handles in the back. In the middle is you, happy, and ready to take on tasks.
Retired Sgt. Major and legendary custom knifemaker Kit Carson of Vine Grove, KY designed the M21™ series. His knives have been a long-time staple of military forces worldwide and Kit wanted to create a premium knife that was everything you could ask for in a high quality work blade, but at a great price. He succeeded with a heavy-duty knife series that's tough enough for whatever life throws your way.
Made of high carbon stainless steel blades this deep-bellied spear point-style is swedged and recurved. It's like having a bulldozer with laser-like cutting precision. A non-reflective black titanium nitride finish offers maximum corrosion resistance. So they can still look good even after the messiest of jobs. We're sure you've done a few of those.
The M21™ G10's feature the innovative and super strong AutoLAWKS™ knife safety. This sets a pin against the locking liner which converts it into a virtual fixed blade when the knife is open and locked. To disengage the blade, simply pull the red pin back, slide the locking liner over and close the knife. To deploy quickly, press your finger on the Carson Flipper, the blade flies open, and this innovative safety system automatically has your back.
The handle of the M21™-04G is built as tough as the blade but that doesn't mean we sacrificed comfort with it. An InterFrame build with stainless steel liners makes this baby virtually indestructible. Meanwhile the G10 scales give you lightweight, unparalleled, all weather grip. The handles also keep your hands cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It's the best of all worlds in whatever corner of the planet you use it.
So grab hold of the M21™ G10. When it comes to your list of favorite features, it checks them off, with authority.

I have owned several CRKT Knives over the years and have had excellent experiences with all of them. The M21-14G takes the cake however. It has been my EVERYDAY carry knife for several years now and has stood up to the test of time (on and off duty). Yes, there is a knick in the blade but that was my fault and I'm surprised the blade wasn't more damaged in that particular incident. It keeps a razor edge and still opens with ease. Hands down the best fight-worthy folder I've ever owned. I just wish I had it back when I was in the Army.

I used this knife to filed dress three deer (including the pelvic bone) and the edge only needed a quick run over a leather strop to be back to saving sharp.

awesome knife. I use this particular knife as my current EDC knife. I must say, as an avid knife collector, that this one well built knife. I love G10 handles, and the blade style is a lovely one. The Veff serrations are sharp enough to cut through paper with just the weight of the knife straight out of the box

This thing is a beast. It's a huge heavy well built fighting knife that can stand up to some serious abuse. The tip is very strong, the G10 is somewhat slick, and I love the Autolawks feature. It is heavy but not noticable in carry. Honestly it beats most big tactical blades at an extremely competitive price

I'll make ths short and sweet. Bought this knife USED over 5 yrs ago. Whoever owned it prior to me couldn't sharpen a knife to save his/her life(light showed thru if you set it vertical on a flat surface). I work installing fences and frankly I beat the hell out of all my tools, so I sharpened this bad boy almost every day. I'd estimate I've lost maybe 1/16 in. of blade...in FIVE YEARS. Combine that with the double lock and this is easily the best knife I've ever owned. Maybe one of the best $50 investments(again, the USED price) I've ever made. If you're reading this, just buy the thing. If you regret it, I'll let you punch me in the gut.

I purchased my first CRKT M21-14G from a hole-in-the-wall knife shop in Williamsburg. I was drawn in by the aggressive looks, mostly from the serrations, which I have heard some people (PMC Spec Ops mostly) will use chainsaw files to sharpen. It had a "shave-ready" edge right out of the box, and has excellent edge retention. I have only had to rub the blade on the back of my belt maybe twice. Very good investment.

This is a great knife. My first CRKT knife was a K.I.S.S. folder I bought ten years ago. I have a vast number of knives, both folders and fixed blades from Spyderco, Benchmade, SOG, Cold Steel, Gerber and Kershaw, but the M21-14 is by far my favorite. The Veff serrations are incredible. The first time I used this knife to cut through a rope, I thought there was something wrong with the rope, as it went through without any effort.
I am such a big fan of this knife, I have actually bought 8 M21-14 and given a 6 of them away to friends.
I carry and use this knife every day. This is the best knife for the money Thank you CRKT
