AKC F-16 D/A Bayonet OTF Automatic Knife White (3.3" Two Tone)

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


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!

Customer Reviews

Great action a steal at this price
Tim L. on Jun 27, 2022

I was pleasantly surprised at this little OTF. The action is fantastic and the steel is not too bad but what makes this knife great is the price. Great price for an OTF that if it had a MicroTech or Benchmade label on it would go for double or triple. Still have to keep it clean and lube the action or it will start to stick.

Love this knife !!!
Richard F. on Aug 16, 2020

I liked this particular F-16 because of the way the black & white handle compliments the black & white blade. The knife itself is excellent for the money. Action is great. Blade steel is better than you will ever need on an OTF. Looks cool. Works great. Feels great. Can't go wrong with this one.

Not bad for the price, may grow on you
RB B. on Aug 13, 2020

I ordered this because I am a knife collector and the reviews all in all were good... and it was unusual. After having it a couple of days I have played with it a bit and must say that for the price it is not bad. Not to say it is up to par with a Microtech or Benchmade OTF but then they are many times more expensive. The blade came very sharp and I like the blade style. Since I wanted to use it for my non dominant left side, I do wish the clip was reversible and not so stiff, and the thumb slide was not so tight, but all in all I like it although still not sure if I will keep it. If you like this sort of thing it will probably grow on you as it harkens back to the 1950's and has an Italian feel about it.
