Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

For years Kit Carson's M16 designs have been our most popular series. And our Zytel version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function not fad. And they are exceptional values. The M16-03Z and M16-13Z are slim designs with spear point blades. They are ideal for a variety of carry positions. They use our very successful Inter Frame construction tough textured Zytel scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner Inter Frame. We overbuild it for rigidity using solid Zytel back spacers. And we assemble the handle with superior offset Torx fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly. We use our tough AUS 4 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility and offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges. All models feature the Carson Flipper which is not only an aid to opening the blade especially when wearing gloves but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open. We've also incorporated our patented Auto Lawks automatic knife safety into all models which converts the M16 Zytel series into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked. All styles have Teflon bearings and a removable Teflon -plated stainless steel clothing/gear clip. Think of the M16-Zytel as a Clydesdale ready to rush a knight into battle or pull a beer wagon.
