Columbia River M16-10KZ Folder AUS-4 Tanto Blade Black
Arguably one of the best knife designs to come along, and one of the best values in the work and sport knife world, here's a cutting tool design that just makes good sense. Adapted directly from the M16 platform, the M16-Z EDC (Every Day Carry) was expressly developed with the value conscious user in mind. With the functional design Kit Carson is known for, this knife is built upon a dual stainless steel liner InterFrame and glass-filled nylon back spacers. Textured glass filled nylon handle scales complete this formidable 4" handle assembly with Torx fasteners throughout. The overall profiling and body contouring make for a very strong comfortable grip. The 3" blades are fashioned from high-carbon stainless steel (8Cr15MoV, 55-57 HRC) for optimum toughness and edge holding ability in a bead blasted or black EDP finish. It is available as a razor-sharp plain edge spear point or combined razor-sharp/Triple-Point serrated tanto. The Carson Flipper also serves as a finger guard in the open position. Factor in the patented AutoLAWKS automatic knife safety and you have yourself a virtual fixed blade when blades are locked open. It also has dual thumb studs and a removable stainless steel clip.
