For years, Kit Carson's M16® designs have been our most popular series. And our Zytel® version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad. And they are exceptional values.

The M16®-02Z and M16®-12Z are tough little bulldogs, with 3.00" dual grind Tanto-style blades.

They use our very successful InterFrame construction, tough, textured Zytel® scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. We overbuild it for rigidity, using solid Zytel back spacers. And we assemble the handle with superior offset Torx® fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly.

We use our tough AUS 4 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility, and offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges.

All models feature the Carson Flipper, which is not only an aid to opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.

We've also incorporated our patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic knife safety into all models, which converts the M16 Zytel series into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked.

All styles have Teflon® bearings and a removable Teflon®-plated stainless steel clothing/gear clip.

Think of the M16-Zytel as a Clydesdale—ready to rush a knight into battle or pull a beer wagon. Every day. Day after day.
