Designed by the late legendary knifemaker Harold “Kit” Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, the M21™-12SFG offers a combination of Carson-series features requested by military procurement specialists years ago. As a retired Sgt. Major, Kit was happy to oblige. Crafted from high-carbon stainless steel with exclusive, patented, Veff Serrations™, the 3” blade is ideal for cutting rope and fibrous materials. Add to that a black corrosion-resistant blade finish and you’re good to go through anything.
A rarity in Special Forces knives, the M21™-12SFG also features a dual hilt blade guard to keep you safe during sustained, heavy use. The automated liner safety sets a red pin between the locking liner and the frame, acting as an additional layer of safety. The universally-recognized handle design is built of grippy, durable G10.
The next generation, the latest in the legacy.
How Automated Liner Safety Works
The automated liner safety sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety, so the locking liner is less likely to disengage during use.
To close the knife, pull the red buttoned safety lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position. Want one of the most secure safety systems on the market? The choice is automatic.
