Custom knife maker Kit Carson is widely known for his M16® creation, which is offered in many CRKT® production models. But since 1990, Kit's most popular selling custom model has been his classic M4™.
The CRKT M4™-02W Burled Wood is a premier model with a classic look, incorporating wood scales and brushed stainless steel bolsters.
Whilst CRKT were engineering it, they decided to add more value by offering the Outburst® assisted opening. The Outburst mechanism immediately lets the blade open after you have opened the blade at roughly 30 degrees.
The M4 models have dual thumb studs for ambidextrous one-hand opening, bronze bearings, and lubricous washers at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth, swift action.
The 3.25" blade is a high-hollow-grind drop point of premium 8Cr13MoV stainless steel in a bead-blast finish with a Razor-Sharp edge. The heavy-duty InterFrame body is true to Kit's innovation, with dual stainless steel liners, one locking, and a stainless steel back spacer.
All of the M4 models have high-mounted pocket/gear clips.
