Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) is an American owned and Operated Company based out of Tualatin, Oregon. CRKT is an excellent representation of what happens when you combine creative/innovative designs and the finest available components. CRKT is sought after by Law Enforcement, Military, Outdoorsmen, and just about anyone who knows anything about durable knives and tools.
We have produced Kit Carson's popular M16 line in many variations over the past decade. Our glass filled nylon version has built the largest user base of all. These knives are built for function, not fad, and they are exceptional values.
Our new M16 ZLEK line uses our very successful InterFrame construction, with tough, textured glass filled nylon scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame and solid glass filled nylon back spacers. We assemble the handle with superior offset Torx fasteners.
All components receive a tough tactical black coating. The Flipper can be pressed for fast one-hand opening, and creates a blade guard when open. We use our premium AUS 8 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades, which have Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges to easily cut rope, cord, canvas, and vegetation.
