The first CRKT knife I ever bought was an M16® from a Military Supply store by Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. That was Many Many Years Ago! I absolutely loved that knife. The popular M16® design by the late Kit Carson is making a comeback with the stainless steel series. Keeping all the fan-favorite features from Kit’s line of tactical folders, then reimagined as an everyday carry, the M16®-04SS adds even more strength and performance to the mix. Built with a tanto, high-quality Sandvik 12C27TM blade for excellent edge retention, it’s topped with a bead blast finish to reduce any unwanted glare or reflection. Hailing from a true classic, the stainless steel M16®-04SS is a whole other caliber of a comeback.

  • Stainless steel handle withstands hard use
