Designed by Kit Carson, the CRKT M16-12ZLEK Tanto Folding Knife features a built-in glass breaker and seatbelt cutter. The 3" partially serrated blade is crafted from AUS-8 stainless steel and coated with a black Ti-Nitride finish that reduces reflections for added stealth. The tanto-style blade has a hollow grind with Triple-Point serrations on part of the blade edge, ideal for sawing through objects like rope, webbing, or other fibrous materials.

A Carson Flipper makes opening the knife one-handed a quick and simple task, and acts as a blade guard when the knife is open. When closed, the seat belt cutter on the flipper lets you slice belts or cord without exposing the blade. The AutoLAWKS safety system acts as a backup to the liner lock, preventing any accidental closure. The knife's handle is made from glass-filled nylon with a 420J2 stainless steel liner and a glass breaker designed to shatter tempered safety glass. The two-position pocket clip allows for right- or left-handed tip-down carrying.
