Description
CRM1613ZLEK: M16-13ZLEK - Kit Carson Design
Columbia River
 
We have produced Kit Carson's popular M16® line in many variations over the past decade. Our Zytel® version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values. 

Our new M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured Zytel® scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid Zytel back spacers. We assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners. 

For professional use, we'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. We use our 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 our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically makes them into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked. 

M16®-13ZLEK. This mid-size M16 with spear point blade is a perennial favorite, with all the trademark Kit Carson features. A black stainless steel twoposition pocket/gear clip is included. 

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

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Lock Type
Cons: None
I purchased For a rescue knife but got my fav edc
Great design overallI’ve had this knife for a little over 2 yrs and within a week it replaced my edc, because of the security you feel with it in your hand. The enlarged finger guard/flippertab/belt cutter is badass. It fits my hand perfect (which is an average size hand). It’s stood up against everything I’ve thrown it it so far. Only complaint I could argue is I’d like to see more jimping all the way down the spine of the blade before the false edge. I purchased it to have a capable rescue knife and it’s proven to be that and more!
