The CRKT M16-04KS Manual Flipper Knife was designed by Kit Carson and is a great everyday carry knife. The M16 features a 12C27 Sandvik Steel blade and a 2Cr13 stainless steel handle with a black oxide finish. The tanto style blade on the knife measures 3.87 in. and it has a black finish and plain cutting edge. The sturdy stainless steel handle measures 5.34 in. and offers a solid grip. Overall the length of the knife is 9.21 in. and it weighs approximately 5.92 oz. Made in China. Homage: Paid. The M16 is the most popular series that CRKT has ever seen. We’re humbled to do right by the revered Kit Carson with this new frame-lock iteration of a legendary tactically inspired everyday carry folding knife. This one is more than just a fresh take on a classic. It’s a true tribute to one of the greats.
