Wield an M16

Designed by legendary knifemaker Kit Carson to deliver full function in compact folders, his M16 knives are known for their high tactical utility and minimal style. Boasting the largest user base of the line, the CRKT M16-12ZLEK Knife comes with glass-filled nylon handles while the M16-14T comes with a nearly 4” blade and strong yet lightweight titanium handle. Whatever edge you choose, both knives pack enough functional features to cut through any trouble that comes your way.

Note: On this drop you have your choice of the M16-12ZLEK and the M16-14T(+$15)


Bifunctional Blade

The tanto blade is made of AUS 8 steel and shaped to put more steel behind the point and hollow ground for extra sharpness. The M16-12ZLEK blade gets topped off with a black Ti-Nitride finish to give the blade it's end coloring. To make sure that you can chop through rope, vegetation, and cord with equal ease, the blade features a combination of razor-sharp and triple-point serrated edges. Once the blade is deployed by pressing on the flipper, it stays solidly in place with the liner lock and AutoLAWKS safety.


Auto Escape

For even more function, the knife features a seatbelt cutter on the flipper and a tungsten carbide glass breaker at the end of the handle. The glass-filled nylon handle also features a two-position clip for convenient carry, making the CRKT M16-12ZLEK Knife the ultimate EDC accessory or the perfect emergency tool to leave in the glove compartment.


Rise of the Titanium

The M16-14T handles are CNC machined from solid titanium and feature a ceramic bead-blasted finish and an improved strength-to-weight ratio, resulting in an almost indestructible frame with an enhanced grip. Finished off with a one-position clip, the CRKT M16-14T Knife gives you everything you need in an everyday carry knife.
