Description

Features:
  • Satin bayonet blade made from 440A stainless steel.
  • Thumb slide opener that has a classic stiletto style.
  • Black-coated aluminum handle with a grippy inlay.
  • Tip-down pocket clip for secure carry.

Description:

The AKC F-16 is an EDC-friendly, modern take on the classic stiletto. It is an automatic knife with double action, meaning that, by moving the thumb slide up and down, the blade automatically deploys and retracts. This makes it both easy to use with one hand and super fun to fidget with. It takes stylistic queues from the classic switchblade, but has more simplified shapes for a contemporary aesthetic. In short, this snappy OTF knife makes the impressive jet it was named after proud, and you’ll know just what we mean when you get your hands on one.

Like what you see? The AKC F-16 OTF knife is available in a wide array of handle colors, insert types, and blade styles. Brows our selection and pick out your favorite!

I bought this knife a few months ago, and since then, I have used it every single day - easily 20 openings and closings per day. At first, I was worried that the mechanism would wear out or the blade would become loose, but no such problems arose. The only issue I had was the powder and grip tape wearing off. I ended up refinishing the knife case into a brushed aluminum look that I actually like better than the original powder coat. The mechanism will also become rough if it is not properly lubricated and cleaned every couple of months.

Pros:
- Super durable mechanism
- Blade stays fairly sharp and is easy to sharpen
- Holds up well to abuse

Cons:
- Powder coating wears off easily
- Mechanism needs to be lubricated every few months
For the price? Awesome

This is my first OTF and I absolutely love it.

- I thought this knife would be like a cheap low quality knife but I'm pleasantly surprised to see that's not the case.

- Handle feels good in the hands, and has a grippy sandy black bit in the middle.

- Knife is sharp out of the box and a snappy opening with little play.

- The opening of the knife actually takes more strength than you'd think and it being my first OTF, it'll take some getting used to but good to know it'll take effort to open up in your pocket if you're worried about that.

Don't remember who but there is a video that recommends this knife as a good entry into the OTF life. It was out of stock in my wish list and got to the OK to order the other knife in there and it was available so I got them both. Yes the handle is a little bulky yes there is some slop in the blade once locked up but OMG what action. It does take a little pressure to get it to fire but it is not terrible. My only complaint is after just a couple carry days other stuff in my pocket has started to knock some of the finish off but that is more about the other junk in my pocket than the knife.
Incredible Knife!!!

This is a high quality and well built OTF knife. For the money, you wont get a better product. I have carried mine for over a year. It gets a lot of use and has never failed me.

The F16 is well designed. Has very little blade play. Well, only a margin more then my Microtech utratec costing much more. All otf's have some sort of play that's in their nature.. For the price it's an excellent value. I would like to see Akc ad more grip tape to the sides. And gimping to the firing lever. Possibly a window breaker. Akc hope your listening.
Perfect deal

This OTF is the best knife of it's type in the $40 price range.
Unlike the Chinese OTF's that are in the same price range this AKC knife will fire and release every time.
With the handle made of aluminum it keeps the weight down. It is marked as an Italian knife.
I think this will make a good light duty EDC knife.
Thanks Blade HQ for great prices and speedy shipping on your products.
