The service men and women of the coalition forces in the Middle East and Afghanistan require cutting tools that can stand up to the harsh demands of the desert. Our Carson Desert Tactical Folders have been developed specifically to blend into the desert environment.
M16-14D Desert Big Dog has an aluminum frame M16 in desert camo. The contoured handles of 6061 T6 aluminum are hard anodized Desert Tan. The 3.875" (98 mm) AUS 8 stainless steel blade, chosen for edge retention and durability, receives a highly corrosion-resistant Desert Tan non-reflective titanium nitride coating. It has a Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge to cut through nets, webbing and vegetation quickly.
It also features our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS safety, which automatically turns the folder into a fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked.
One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth, the result of precision tolerances and lubrous washers at the blade pivot. The dual ambidextrous thumb studs with checkered surfaces provide instant access in any circumstance. Please note: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.
