Reimagined from the late Kit Carson's popular M16® design, this modern tactical folding knife packs three revolutionary inventions into a single structure.
The CRKT M16®-04DB incorporates the Deadbolt®, Assisted Opening, and IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system, making the ultimate EDC you'll want to have on your side.
When the late Kit Carson released the initial M16® years ago, he didn't recognise that this would start a new legacy. Working with designer Ken Onion's lightning-fast Assisted Opening and Flavio Ikoma's IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system to achieve a smooth and quick deployment.
Built with a lightweight aluminium handle for added stability and easy gripping, the M16®-04DB stands out as the largest out of the redesigned M16® series (compared to the M16®-02DB and M16®-03DB).
How Assisted Opening Works
Held securely shut in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation, the blade opens at an impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
How Deadbolt® Works
Steel bolts interlock with the blade when deployed to deliver incredible strength. A prominent button sits at the pivot point for simple, intuitive disengagement without fingers crossing the blade's path.
