Description

The Carson M4-02 has CRKT's OutBurst® assisted opening mechanism and bronze and Teflon® bearings at the adjustable blade pivot for smooth, fast action. The dual thumb studs for ambidextrous one-hand opening and the patented LAWKS safety for a virtual fixed blade when actuated after the blade is opened and locked.

The high-hollow-grind drop point 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade is satin finished, as is the heavy-duty InterFrame, which is built true to Kit's design, with dual stainless steel liners, one locking, and a stainless steel back spacer.

The M4 is a Kit Carson designed knife from CRKT, in a smaller every day carry (EDC) size. The M4™-02 has white bone handle scales and polished black G-10 bolsters that create a beautiful contrast.

Custom knifemaker and Knifemakers' Guild member Kit Carson is widely known for his M16® design, which is offered in many CRKT production models. Since 1990, Kit's most consistent selling custom model has been his classic M4™.

I managed to buy one of these from a target for $15 many years ago before I knew what’s what when I came to knives. I assumed that it was a cheap gas station quality knife and proceeded to baton it through firewood. It bent the lock bar and made it a little stickier to unlock but it held up great. I still have the knife in multiple pieces held together by a hair tie. It feels great and has a solid action.
Best knife for the price

I bought on a whim because I liked the black and white look. Didn't realize until i got it that it was bone, love it. Very well made. Amazing action. Perfect size for me for an edc. the blade is so so slicey. The more I handle it, the more i absolutely love it. Even more so than some of the 200 dollar knives I have bought recently. you will not go wrong buying this.
Classy look, sharp blade

This knife has a timeless look with modern fit and finish. Extremely sharp out of the box with a hollow grind, and maintains an edge well. CRKT has produced some of my favorite budget knives and ones that I typically beat up pretty bad. This one for some reason makes me want to treat it with a little more care because it just feels and looks a little more luxurious. Maybe it's the tuxedo styling - but I know it would take a beating if needed. Great value, great blade, great warranty. Zero regrets here.
Simple, solid performer

This knife is just a little short and fat to sit in my hand perfectly, but that's user-specific.

Overall, the design is just about flawless. Useful blade that easy to sharpen, ambidextrous opening, and a fantastic spring assist.

"Everything you need, nothing you don't."

And the with bone with the G10 accent makes for a classy look and feel, too.
What a Great Little Knife

Hollow ground blade is very sharp and stays that way. Opens super quick and reliably. One of my favorite EDC.
Very good knife
