This year we're offering the M4 design in Kit's smaller every day carry (E.D.C.) size. The new M4™-02 lightweight model features white bone scales and contrasting black G10 bolsters, hand contoured like a Carson custom.
While we were engineering it, we decided to add some more value by offering our Outburst® assisted opening. 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.
