The Kit Carson designed CRKT M16-01KZ is a perfect small-sized every day carry (EDC) work knife. The Zytel InterFrame handle has 420J2 stainless steel liners and CRKT's AutoLAWKS knife safety, which automatically actuates when the blade is open making it a virtual fixed blade. The handle is slim with black Zytel scales and a tip-down pocket clip.

The CRKT M16-01KZ features a hollow ground spear point style blade with a plain cutting edge and a black EDP finish. The blade is easily opened with the dual thumb studs or a push of the Carson Flipper. The Teflon bearings at the blade pivot and an adjustable pivot screw allow for perfect blade action.

First off its a great little knife, i have had it for about 6 years now and have had only problem with it the whole time. The problem was with the safety it somehow got stuck causing the blade to stay open. I took it apart and just took out the safety and it still works great.
Good Enough for me
Tyler K.
While talking to a friend who just came back from deployment I asked him what knife he and his buddies carried. He pulled out this and said that CRKT is what most of the guys he was with carried because they were cheap and lasted. Thatís good enough for me
Amazing Knife. No real problems
Andrew H.
This knife does everything it was designed for. The CRKT M16-01KZ is a tiny knife that basically disappears in your pocket, but when you pull it out and hit the flipper, you have a respectably large knife. When you compare this knife to other knives with 3.125 inch blades, the M16-01KZ manages to appear small because of the tiny handle. Only problem I find is the lack of G-10 handles (I would have liked that), milled out holes in the steel liners, and a better back spacer (or multiple back spacers).
Good Knife
Preston H.
This knife is well build, solid, and sharp. I also really like the flipper design, it makes deployment very fast. The only reason I gave four instead of five stars is the secondary lock. It works, and once you get used to it it's ok, I just don't feel like it's necessary for me personally.
Good edc

Got this knife along time ago and it was my edc for years. I need to send it in because the autolawk isn't working. But for what I paid and how much use I got out, it was well worth it. Ckrt has a no question asked warranty so I know they will fix or replace it.
