Here is Kit Carson's M16® Every Day Carry (EDC) with our glass filled
nylon InterFrame build. Our knife users told us, "We want an affordable
work knife that we can give hard use without feeling guilty, and one
that won't break us up if we leave it on a job site or drop it in the
We heard you. So we set about to make the Z EDC the best value in the
work and sport knife world.
That starts with textured glass filled nylon scales and a dual stainless
steel liner InterFrame. Assembled with glass filled nylon back spacers
and Torx® fasteners, the result is amazingly rigid. Glass filled nylon
offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents. Lubrous washers
at the blade pivot and an adjustable pivot screw allow for perfect blade
The blade is AUS 8CR15MoV high-carbon stainless steel with a bead-blast
finish, which gives an ideal combination of toughness and edge-holding
ability in a work knife, and also allows easy field-sharpening.
The M16®-10Z features a dual hollow grind Tanto-style blade with
Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges similar to our "Big
Dog" M16 models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw
through cord, webbing, nets or vegetation quickly.
Of course, if features the Carson Flipper, which speeds opening of the
blade and acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.
The real breakthrough was our ability to engineer our patented*
AutoLAWKS™ knife safety into all models, which automatically actuates
when the blades are open, making these folders into virtual fixed blades
Add to these features the standard removable stainless steel clothing/gear
clip plus the CRKT limited lifetime warranty, and you have one of the
truly great knife values of our time.
