The M16-14D has a titanium nitride coated blade with a partially serrated edge. The aluminum frame is desert tan camo finished, while the steel hardware and lock are matte bead blast finished. The Carson Flipper and Teflon bearings at the blade pivot allow quick and smooth one-hand opening. The pocket clip is 4-way reversible for every possible carry type, but not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.
The CRKT M16-14D Big Dog is a hefty utility version of the popular Kit Carson design. It features a large open build aluminum InterFrame handle with CRKT's AutoLAWKS safety, which turns the folder into a virtual fixed blade automatically.
This M16 Carson Desert Folder is designed especially for the service men and women in the Middle East and Afghanistan who require cutting tools that can stand up to the harsh demands of the desert.
