Kit Carson, designer of the M16 Series, became famous for his titanium frame M16 customs. True to Kit's custom design in all details, the production M16T models have been taken a step further with the addition of our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically turns the folders into virtual fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.
The handles, which form the open-build frame, are CNC machined from 6AL4V titanium. The result is a better strength-to-weight ratio than steel or aluminum, and an almost indestructible frame. The titanium frame is minimally ceramic bead-blast finished to enhance grip. The single 420J2 stainless steel locking liner with friction grooves provides positive locking.
The blade is AUS 8 stainless steel, chosen for edge retention and durability, in non-reflective fine bead blast finish, with a Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge. This steel can handle the most rugged cutting tasks and still be field sharpened. Of course, this model features the signature "Carson Flipper" extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.
