The Best Friend You've Always Wanted
Shazar K. on Sep 5, 2020

I've a novice knife-guy; I'm a geek and technician, who spends their free time doing research on tools that make my daily work more efficient. I purchase knives for specific reasons and task. I want equipment that is good quality, adapts to my lifestyle seamlessly, doesn't interfere with my work, and simply works as expected without fuss. Over the course of my knife addiction, I've owned several CRKT M16 versions, for the past 10+ years. They have all worked flawlessly since day one. Even now, they are part of my daily carry rotation, and I trust them with my life. This M16-13ZLEK was purchased as a gift for a close friend, who needed to upgrade his EDC, with something more utilitarian for daily chores, and more tactical for when things don't go well. I took great care when it came to choosing a knife, because it had to be functional, easy to use, and be something he could rely on. This knife excelled in all those categories. The flipper action is stellar, straight out the box. It's smooth, sleek, and fast. I couldn't believe the quickness of the movement, and suddenly I felt that I was the slowest part of the action! The fit in-hand is robust and thick. The grip is solid, and you can tell this is hard-use knife because of the thick liners on the inside of the handle. The glass-breaker is prominent; it's there for a reason, and you'll know it. This knife is purpose built. It disguises nothing about itself. The AutoLAWKS system is wonderful, and I specifically chose this knife because it has it. It's a small, additional step to close the knife; however, the peace of mind that comes with that secondary safety is worth the extra second. If you're interested in this style or design of knife, get it, you won't be disappointed. Every M16 I've owned has proven their value and worth many times. This is a knife that will last you a lifetime.

It's great for the price but very stiff out of the box, the little screw on the liner lock often gets in the way of closing the blade.
