This year we're offering the M4 design in Kit's smaller every day carry (E.D.C.) size.
The M4™-02W Burled Wood is a deluxe model with burled wood scales and brushed stainless steel bolsters. It's a very classy look.
While we were engineering it, we decided to add some more value by offering our patented Outburst® assisted opening, and our locking liner safety innovation adds an ingenious layer of safety to your folding knife. The 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 engage the safety, push the manual safety lever forward. To close the knife, pull the manual lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position. Many CRKT® folders feature this innovative safety system.
The Outburst mechanism instantly brings the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees. M4 models have dual thumb studs for ambidextrous one-hand opening and bronze bearings and lubrous washers at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth, fast action.
The 3.25" blade is a high-hollow-grind drop point of premium 8Cr13MoV stainless steel in a bead-blast finish with a Razor-Sharp edge.
Our heavy-duty InterFrame build is true to Kit's design, with dual stainless steel liners, one locking, and a stainless steel back spacer.
All M4 models have high-mounted pocket/gear clips.
So here you have a friendly E.D.C. knife that fits the hand naturally for all kinds of cutting and carving tasks. Like Kit, it's a bit unassuming, but it's a knife you'll come back to year after year.
