Inspired by the M16® tactical knives, this is a straight up “no frills” folding EDC version of the legendary military knife. It claims victory over any day-to-day chores. An open build frame, stainless steel handle, and the signature Carson Flipper is ready for the field, home, or wherever the blade is deployed.
Stainless Steel Handles
Carson Flipper Opening
A proven knife design platform made simple, made tough, and made affordable. If you are a fan of the Kit Carson designed M16 tactical folding knives you are going to want to check out these stainless steel (SS) variations.
Designed by retired Sgt. Major Harold “Kit” Carson of Vine Grove, KY, the M16®-01S and M16®-10S feature a lot of the same DNA as the M-16® tactical folding knives but in the tough stainless steel (SS) handle variation. When duty called for a proven knife design platform made simple, tough and affordable, these were Kit’s answer.
A knife you can use every day, it comes equipped in both plain edge and Triple-Point™ Serrations, similar to our "Big Dog" M16® tactical models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly. Not to mention the occasional letter from the mailbox.
The blade opens easily when you need it most. Just put your finger on the Carson Flipper. Flick your wrist. Then it all locks into place with a traditional frame lock mechanism. The flipper even doubles as an effective blade guard in the open position. Safety on? Check.
When it comes to the handle, the M16®-01S and M16®-10S are like twins to the other M16® knives. Yet these are the stainless steel brothers who like a more classic style. With a standard removable stainless steel pocket clip they're ready for transport — even if it’s just to the remote reaches of the garage.
