CRKT have produced Kit Carson's popular M16® line in many variations over the past decade. Their glass filled nylon version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.

CRKT's new M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid glass filled nylon back spacers. They assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners.

For professional use, they've added a seat belt cutter to the Carson Flipper, and a tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt. Automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife.

All components receive a tough tactical black coating. The Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and creates a blade guard when open. CRKT uses their premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades, which have Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation.

All three models are fitted with CRKT's exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS, the Lake and Walker Knife Safety innovation taken to the next level. AutoLAWKS automatically 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 AutoLAWKS red button lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position.

M16®-12ZLEK. This is CRKT's smaller Tanto-blade version. The very strong blade grind makes a compact and versatile rescue folder. A black stainless steel two-position pocket/gear clip is included.

Full professional features. Non-reflective black finish. Exceptional affordability.
Kit Carson rides again.
