Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A.— January 19, 2010

We did it again. The CRKT® Carson M21™ G10 work knife series

features premium materials, build, finishes– all at a value price.

Here at Columbia River Knife & Tool® (CRKT®) it began like a Christmas wish list.

What if we could build Kit Carson’s M21™ series just the way a custom knifemaker would:

with a G10 and stainless steel InterFrame build and a titanium nitride-coated premium

stainless steel blade? What if we could bring it in at a very competitive value price? Just like a

kid on Christmas morning, we got everything we wanted. And so can you.

Choose from two sizes, just like our original M21 aluminum series, in your choice of Razor-

Sharp or our exclusive Combined Razor-Sharp and patented1 Veff™ Serrated edge grinds.

The swedged and recurved spear point blades are made of premium 8Cr14MoV stainless

steel with a nonreflective black titanium nitride finish which gives maximum corrosion

resistance.

There are many reasons custom knifemakers choose an InterFrame build with stainless steel

liners and G10 scales in preference to aluminum or even titanium scales. First, the aggressive

G10 texture gives unparalleled grip. Second, it is very strong. Third, it is lightweight. And

finally, G10 is an insulator with a low specific heat. Therefore, it is cooler to grip in the

beating desert sun, and warmer to grip at subfreezing temperatures.

These M21 models also feature the very popular “Carson Flipper” blade extension, which

aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.

Unlike the typical custom knifemaker, we are able to engineer our patented2 AutoLAWKS™

automatic knife safety into all M21 models, which converts them into virtual fixed blades

when their blades are open and locked.

As is standard practice on CRKT folders, lubrous washers at the blade pivot assure velvety-

smooth one-hand opening and closing, using Kit Carson’s trademark dual checkered thumb

studs which also act as a blade stop.

Every model features a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip. All

fasteners, including the clip screws, are Torx®. Liners, hardware and clip are black oxide

coated.

So there you have the M21 G10 series. We call it a “premium value line.”

Everything you could ask for in a custom-quality work knife at a great price. Does that

make us feel jolly? Ho, ho, ho! And the MSRP of only $49.99 for the smaller models,

and $64.99 for the larger models will bring a lot of joy to your household, too.
