Product Description

Columbia River Knife & Tool® has been making the Kit Carson designed popular M16 Series of high-performance folding knives for over a decade. But just because the basic design has been around for a while doesn’t mean that it hasn’t kept evolving with the times. It seems like every year CRKT has tweaked, improved or built on the basic M16 design, and this time they’ve used the platform to come out with a first for the company, a fully automatic opening design. This robust design has become widely recognized as a rock solid "go to" cutting tool throughout professional and military services the world over...

The CRKT M16-04A is the first fully auto M16 knife that is being offered as a limited production run and are restricted items that are 'Only Available Through Authorized Distributors and Armed Forces Suppliers' like [ Key West Knife Works ] This all business cutting tool gets its superior lineage straight from the M16 design. Its 4.0" modified tanto blade readily opens in a flash with the push of the auto release button. In addition, the auto mechanism features a patented safety on the handle spine, which effectively locks the release button in both the open and closed positions. The signature M16 handle design is profile contoured and purposefully skeletonized for mobility and secure grip.

The CRKT M16-04A is 100% made in USA!  The CRKT M16-04A Blade is CPM154 (58-60 HRC) steel with DLC coating for superior performance protection. Handle is 6061 Type III anodized aluminum in a non-reflective matte black color. It comes with removable stainless steel three position carry clip. Overall, the M16-04A is definitely one "high-speed, low-drag" knife design that will serve you well, no matter what your mission.
