This everyday carry pocket knife is designed just like the tactical version that inspired it—to be used. That's why it's overbuilt with an open build frame, high carbon stainless steel blade, and the signature Carson Flipper. Admire it. Then put it to work.
The M16® Z everyday carry series was designed by Vine Grove, Kentucky's legendary custom knifemaker and Master Sergent Harold "Kit" Carson. After years of crafting knives for military use, he answered the call when it came to creating one for the civilian population. Now people everywhere have a blade that's ready for the line of duty in whatever capacity they see fit.
An affordable everyday carry knife, the M16®-10KZ features a dual hollow grind tanto-style blade available in plain edge and Triple-Point™ serrated edges similar to our "Big Dog" tactical M16® models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly. It also comes loaded with a distinctive black frame and hardware with a non-reflective tactically inspired look. But at this price, you won't feel guilty if you leave it at a job site somewhere as night sets in.
The blade opens easily when you need it most. Just put your finger on the Carson Flipper. Flick your wrist. This knife also features our automated liner safety innovation which 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 red button lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position. The handle features easy-to-grip glass-reinforced nylon scales and a stainless steel lined InterFrame. Assembled with glass-reinforced nylon back spacers and Torx® fasteners as well, the handle is rigid and offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents. A one position, stainless steel pocket clip rounds out the features. Hold on and be ready to put this knife through anything.
