CRM1614SF: M16-14SF - Tanto - Designed by Kit Carson
Our aluminum InterFrame build SF folders share a unique design offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. The dual grind Tanto blades were specified because they offer maximum strength. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— very rare in folding knives. 

The M16®-14SF Big Dog Aluminum is our hefty utility version, with a 3.875" (98 mm) dual grind Tanto blade and full-size handle with butt pommel. 

Blade, frame and hardware are non-reflective tactical black. The blade receives a black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit's trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth. 

It features our exclusive patented (1) AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety, which turns the folder into a virtual fixed blade automatically. 

Our aluminum frame SF features contoured scales of hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum, with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without gloves, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and a premium AUS 8 stainless steel blade. The Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge is standard. 

All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces use.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Type, Handle Feel
great blade, compromised handle
I love the protruding hand guards, it fits well a working knife and adds grip options. The blade is excellent for non precision-cutting, prying, etc. Precision cuts can not be made because of the blade's thickness and the non-symmetric edge, but it is a nice all-rounder for daily tasks. Big drawback that the flat handle does not provide a secure grip, and it is bruising up my palm when used for a task that demands more effort than just slicing an apple or cutting a single twig. The handle is just not designed to withstand the stress of use that the blade seems to boldly embrace. During digging in wet sand a small piece broke off of the flat steel spring inside the handle that is holding the blade in it's opened position, rendering tha knife useless since then. This might be a problem of all folding knives in general, but a bit more material added to the flat spring and a craftier design could have alleviated it to some extent.

Cons: None
Great knife
This is a great knife. It has been my EDC since 2004. And has made it through both Afghanistan and Iraq. It is well broken in and takes very little effort to open one handed. It has been used to open up some stuff that I would think twice before using any of my other blades (removing the top off of a pony keg to be used as a coin jar, etc) with minimal wear and tear on the blade. It feels at home in my hand as much as my Fox Karambit does and I would not leave home without it.

Not bad~Overall
Great knife, but should be aware of a few things....first off the this is a heavy pocket knife, secondly the's a single-beveled edge and that means it only sharpens on one edge. Secondly, the dual hilt is a great idea on paper, but in-service they are annoying at best. You can't carry tip up or they get caught up in/on your pocket. I tried to make this my edc knife, but was unable to continue after a few days and gave this knife to a guy at work. My SOG Flash II Aluminum handle is still my edc knife.
