The late, great knifemaker Kit Carson is widely known for his M16® design, but his most consistent selling custom model has been his classic M4™. This latest version, the M4™-02M, features a striking satin-finish blade and a handle made of white, resin-infused fiber with black G10 bolsters. It’s not just a great-looking M4™, it’s one of the classiest folding knives you can get.

The rest of the knife is every bit the same M4™-02 that fans know and love. The 3.25-inch drop-point blade is made of a high carbon steel that’s easily maintained and the handle is hand contoured like a Carson custom. Outburst® assisted opening returns for blazing-fast action, and all M4™ models feature dual thumb studs for ambidextrous one-hand operation and pocket clips for low-profile carry.
The simplicity of the M4™, which demonstrates Kit’s form-follows-function approach to design, has made it incredibly popular among knife enthusiasts who need a trustworthy everyday carry. The M4™-02M is proof that you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to deliver a standout new knife.
