Before designing the M16 EDC Tanto Folding Knife, Columbia River Knife & Tool asked consumers what they wanted in a folding knife. The result? A durable, powerful EDC essential that won’t break the bank. This knife is built with a three-inch stainless steel tanto-style blade with three-point partial serration. This blade is tough enough to slice through webbing, cord and vegetation rapidly. The glass-filled nylon handle feels comfortable in your palm and offers a powerful grip for sure performance at all times. In terms of functionality, the M16 features a liner lock that automatically sets a pin between the frame and the locking liner, making the locking liner less likely to disengage during use. When you are ready to disengage, simply pull down the pin, slide over the liner lock and fold the blade home. A Carson flipper makes opening the blade just as simple.
