A classic comeback.

The popular M16® design by the late Kit Carson makes a comeback with the stainless steel series. Packing even more power and functionality than before, the three versions offer a range of blade size and construction—so you can choose which one serves you best. Keeping all the fan-favorite features from Kit’s line of tactical folders, then reimagined as an everyday carry, the M16®-04SS adds even more strength and performance to the mix. Built with a tanto, high-quality 12C27 blade for excellent edge retention, it’s topped with a bead blast finish to reduce any unwanted glare or reflection. Hailing from a true classic, the stainless steel M16®-04SS is a whole other caliber of comeback.
