Columbia River M16-01Z Folder AUS-4 Spear Point Blade Zytel
Arguably one of the best knife designs to come along, and one of the best values in the work and sport knife world, here's a cutting tool design that just makes good sense. Adapted directly from the M16 platform, the M16-SS EDC (Every Day Carry) Series is a straight up, "no frills" every day carry folder design that kicks butt in pure performance and value. Handles are shaped and contoured in the same confident grip M16 style, but are crafted of a retro flavored stainless steel finished in a classic black oxide finish. The 3" blades are fashioned from high-carbon stainless steel (8Cr13MoV, 55-57 HRC) for optimum toughness and edge holding ability in a black EDP finish. They hollow ground and available as a razor-sharp plain edge spear point or combined razor-sharp/Triple-Point serrated tanto. The Carson Flipper also serves as a finger guard in the open position. Factor in the patented AutoLAWKS automatic knife safety and you have yourself a virtual fixed blade when blades are locked open. It also has dual thumb studs and a movable stainless steel clip.
