Columbia River Knives M16-12 ZYTEL Combo Edge

Columbia River Knives M16-12 ZYTEL Combo Edge for years, Kit Carson's M16® designs have been our most popular series. And our Z version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad. And they are exceptional values. 

The M16®-02Z and M16®-12Z are tough little bulldogs, with 3.00" dual grind Tanto-style blades. 

They use our very successful InterFrame construction, tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. We overbuild it for rigidity, using solid glass filled nylon 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, and offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges. 

All models feature the Carson Flipper, which is not only an aid to opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open. 

We've also incorporated our patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic knife safety into all models. AutoLAWKS™ is the Lake and Walker Knife Safety innovation taken to the next level. AutoLAWKS™automatically 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 AutoLAWKS™red button lever back, slide the locking liner over, and fold the blade into the closed position.d. 

All styles have lubrous washers and a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip. 

Think of the M16-Z as a Clydesdale—ready to rush a knight into battle or pull a beer wagon. Every day. Day after day.
