From the Manufacturer Our knife users told us, ‘We want an affordable work knife that we can give hard use without feeling guilty, and one that won’t break us up if we leave it on a job site or drop it in the river.’ So we made the M16-10Z, an EDC (Every Day Carry) knife with our Zytel InterFrame build, a fantastic value in the work and sport knife world. It starts with textured Zytel scales and a dual stainless steel InterFrame liner. Assembled with Zytel back spacers and Torx fasteners, the result is amazingly rigid. Zytel is a fiberglass-filled nylon that offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents, while lubrous washers at the blade pivot and an adjustable pivot screw allow for perfect blade action. The blade is AUS 8CR15MoV high-carbon stainless steel with a bead-blast finish, which gives an ideal combination of toughness and edge-holding ability in a work knife, and also allows easy field-sharpening. The M16-10Z features a dual hollow grind Tanto-style blade with combined razor-sharp and triple-point serrated edges, similar to our Big Dog M16 models. The result is maximum blade strength and ability to saw through cord, webbing, nets, or vegetation quickly. Of course, it also features the Carson Flipper, which speeds opening of the blade and acts as a blade guard when the blade is open. But the real breakthrough was our ability to engineer our patented AutoLAWKS knife safety into all models, which automatically actuates when the blades are open, making these folders into virtual fixed blades when locked. Add to these features the standard removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip plus the CRKT limited lifetime warranty, and you have a truly great knife value.
