M16 – 13ZLEK SPEAR POINT WITH TRIPLE POINT™ SERRATIONS
Designed by Kit Carson in Vine Grove, Kentucky
Columbia River Knife And Tool’s has produced Kit Carson’s popular M16® line in many variations over the past decade. Their glass filled nylon version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.
CRKT new M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid glass filled nylon back spacers. Columbia River Knife And Tool’s assembles the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners.
For professional use, was added a seat belt cutter to the Carson Flipper, and a tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt. In fact, automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife.
Furthermore, 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. Moreover, the premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades is used in this knife, which have Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation.
It also features our automated liner safety. Automated liner safety is the locking liner safety innovation taken to the next level and it 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 buttoned safety lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position.
This mid-size M16 with spear point blade is a perennial favorite, with all the trademark Kit Carson features. In addition, a black stainless steel two position pocket/gear clip is included.
