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®-03Z and M16®-13Z are slim designs with spear point blades. They are ideal for a variety of carry positions.
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.
