Re-issue of Classic Knives Honor Their Fallen Designer.

Share Article

CRKT® is releasing a line of M16® everyday carry knives based off of the original Kit Carson design. They’re a fitting tribute to Carson who passed away in the fall of 2014.

M16-04S

These tactically inspired knives are ready to conquer civilian tasks. Featuring AUS 8 stainless steel blades available in tanto and spear point styles, they hold an edge well and are easier to sharpen in the field than tool steel. When it's time to call them into duty, a Carson Flipper quickly deploys the blade. Meanwhile a LAWKS® manual safety feature sets a pin against the locking liner to hold the liner in place. These M16® Classic knives are good to go through anything.

Kit was a winner of countless awards and was a staple of CRKT since the very beginning. These classic designs live on in tribute to his legacy and contribution to the knife community and the industry as a whole.

“Kit was the real deal, while he worked very hard on form and function his primary goal was to build designs that served the user” CRKT President, Rod Bremer, states, “Kit’s military background served him extremely well and over the years his M16 design has served hundreds of thousands of the troops he cared so deeply for.”

Looking for a knife that is as timeless as the man who designed it? Secure a M16® Classic.

The M16®-04S knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $99.99.
The M16®-03S knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $89.99.
The M16®-02S knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $89.99.
