When Columbia River Knife considered offering Kit Carson's popular aluminum M16 design in a more affordable build, they turned to their very successful InterFrame construction.

Instead of aluminum handles, they use tough, textured Zytel scales over a 420J2 stainless steel liner InterFrame. They overbuild it for rigidity, using solid Zytel back spacers. And we assemble the handle with superior offset Torx fasteners.

The handle is slightly heftier and wider than their aluminum build M16, but it is exceptionally rigid. To some of us, it actually fills the hand better.

They use their tough AUS 4 high-carbon stainless steel for the blades to give greater everyday utility, and offer both Razor-Sharp and Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edges. All models feature the Carson Flipper, which is not only an aid to opening the blade, especially when wearing gloves, but acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.

The M16-03Z and 13Z are slimmer designs with spear point blades. They are ideal for a variety of carry positions.
