Kit Carson

Kit Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, was a retired professional soldier, rising to the level of Master Sergeant. He made knives for 30 years and was a full-time knifemaker, starting in 1993. He was a voting member of the Knifemakers' Guild. Kit was an avid hunter and fisherman for over 40 years, growing up enjoying the woods and trout streams in the mountains of north Georgia. About his philosophy of knife design, he said: "I strive to follow form and function in the knives I design and build. My reputation has been built around solid working knives, both fixed blade and folders. All the time spent outdoors as a young man and the time spent around the world with the Army has strongly influenced the knives I create." Nothing reflects this approach more than the Carson Design of our M16 series, which is built for function, not to follow fads. This highly successful knife series was named one of the Top 10 Factory Tactical Folders of the Decade by Blade magazine. The M16-14M won a comparison test conducted by Germany's Messer magazine. Sadly, Kit passed in September of 2014. His talent and influence is already greatly missed. The Carson family has requested that donations be made to the National Parkinson Foundation at
