The late Kit Carson designed this and many of his other groundbreaking knives in his shop in Vine Grove, Kentucky. Kit’s lasting legacy is anchored to his ranking as a master sergeant and his high-profile membership in the Cutlery Hall of Fame. The M16®-03BS keeps all we love about Kit’s line of tactical folders and reimagines it as an everyday carry. The versatile spear point blade is built of high-quality Sandvik 12C27™ blade steel for excellent edge retention and has a bead blast finish for supreme durability. It features the same trusty and recognizable handle design but finished with a bronze titanium nitride to elevate the look.
With this new M16® reissue, we’re honoring a legend the best way we know how.
