CRKT M16-12 E.R. - Tanto, Orange Zytel Handle, AutoLAWKS, Combo Edge

At the request of those in the emergency services field, we have modified some of our most successful designs for these rugged applications. Handles have scales of tough Zytel in high-visibility orange. We have chosen tough blade steels to withstand abuse, and given them a polished finish to resist corrosion. Finally, we have priced them to be as affordable as possible.

M16-12Z E.R. This is the smaller Tanto-blade version of Kit Carson's very popular M16 Zytel line. The very strong blade grind, Combination Triple-Point Serrated edge and Carson Flipper make this a compact and versatile rescue folder. A stainless steel pocket/gear clip and our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS automatic safety are standard.

It uses our very successful InterFrame construction, tough, textured Zytel scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. We overbuild it for rigidity, using solid Zytel back spacers. And we assemble the handle with superior offset Torx fasteners. The handle is exceptionally rigid and fills the hand perfectly.

We use our tough AUS 4 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility.

The Carson Flipper is not only an aid to opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.

We've also incorporated our patented* AutoLAWKS automatic knife safety into all models, which converts the M16 Zytel series into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked.

All styles have Teflon bearings and a removable Teflon-plated stainless steel clothing/gear clip.
