Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A — January 17, 2017

One of the most beloved tactically inspired EDCs is back.

CRKT® is releasing the M21™-10KSF Black tactically inspired everyday carry folding knife. Originally designed by the famed Kit Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, this new version is a tribute to the late, great designer.

The M21™ comes from a long line of military grade tools. And with a tough black oxide finish, this 3.1” deep-bellied blade with Triple Point™ serrations is made to conquer civilian tasks with the grit and capability of a standard-issue. This beefy folder is raring to take down any obstacle—it’s so capable you won’t want it to leave your side.

The knives in this series feature a traditional frame lock for safety and are available in several blade style options, this one in a versatile, powerful deep belly blade. This series also features the dual Carson Flippers for quick and convenient blade deployment—and the flippers double as an effective blade guard in the open position, a true “dual hilt”—a rarity in folding knives.

The original M21™ is cornerstone to the CRKT identity, and Kit Carson was always a welcome and revered guest around the CRKT headquarters. This new version is a tribute both to the late designer and the sweeping popularity of this knife.

The M21™ everyday carry series is a straight up, "no frills" EDC folder with a tactically inspired design that is almost more than you need. Almost.

The M21™-10KSF Black manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $49.99
