- Technical Description
Designed by Kit Carson in Vine Grove, Kentucky
The M16 series comes from a long line of military grade tools. Now you can conquer civilian tasks with this proven knife design platform made simple, tough, and affordable.
The late Kit Carson designed this and many of his other groundbreaking knives in his shop in Vine Grove, Kentucky. Kit’s lasting legacy comes from his influence on the knife industry—he’s known for popularizing the flipper which is now a household component. In addition, he’s also remembered for his esteemed ranking as a Master Sergeant and his high-profile membership in the Cutlery Hall of Fame. The M16®-02KS keeps all we love of Kit’s original tactically-inspired everyday carry folding knife and adds a Tanto blade complete with a durable black oxide finish. With its hardy frame lock, it’s securely held in place in the midst of whatever job you put in front of it while the stainless steel handle bored with four holes keeps clean and light.
With the M16® reissue, we’re honoring a legend the best way we know how.
- Fast Opening: The flipper deploys the blade fast
- Brute Strength: Frame lock utilizes a thick lock bar to secure the blade
