Kit Carson, designer of the M16 Series, became famous for his custom titanium frame M16s. True to Kit s custom design in all details, the production M16T models have been taken a step further with the addition of the patented Lake And Walker Knife Safety (LAWKS), which converts them into virtual fixed blades when engaged. 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. Blades are AUS 8 stainless steel, chosen for edge retention and durability, in non-reflective fine bead blast finish. This steel can handle the most rugged cutting tasks and still be field sharpened. Of course, the T models feature the signature Carson Flipper extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard. The slim profile M16-13T has a spear point blade, a very popular slender shape that is ideal for a variety of carry positions. One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of Teflon bearings at the blade pivot. The ambidextrous thumb stud with checkered surface provides instant access in any circumstance. Features a removable Teflon plated stainless steel clothing/gear clip.
