Designed by Kit Carson in Vine Grove, Kentucky
The service men and women of the coalition forces in the Middle East and Afghanistan require cutting tools that can stand up to the harsh demands of the desert. Our Carson Desert Tactical Folders have been developed specifically to blend into the desert environment.
- Automated Liner Safety
- Triple Point™ Serrations
- Glass Reinforced Nylon Handles w/Carson Flipper
Our M16®-13ZM Military model features our super rigid InterFrame build with 420J2 stainless steel liners, threaded stainless steel back spacers, and Desert Camo pattern glass filled nylon scales. The blade is non-reflective bead-blast finished AUS 4 stainless steel. It blends and almost disappears in the desert.
This model features a 3.50" (89 mm) spear point blade and weighs only 3.5 oz. (99 g). It is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum. It comes with a removable clothing/gear clip.
It also features our automated liner safety. Automated liner safety is the locking liner safety innovation taken to the next level. The automated liner safety sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety, so the locking liner is less likely to disengage during use.
To close the knife, pull the red buttoned safety lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position. Want one of the most secure safety systems on the market? The choice is automatic.
The blade has Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges.
