Columbia River M16-12ZER - Combo Edge Pocket Knife
At the request of those in the emergency services field, we have modified some of our most successful designs for these rugged applications. Handles have scales of tough Zytel; in high-visibility orange. We have chosen tough blade steels to withstand abuse, and given them a polished finish to resist corrosion. On the Bear Claw E.R. and A.B.C. E.R., the Zytel scales can be removed with a Torx tool so the full-tang blades can be thoroughly cleaned after use in muddy or salt water. Finally, we have priced them to be as affordable as possible. M16-12Z E.R. This is the smaller Tanto-blade version of Kit Carson’s very popular M16 Zytel line. The very strong blade grind, Combination Triple-Point™ Serrated edge and Carson Flipper make this a compact and versatile rescue folder. A stainless steel pocket/gear clip and our exclusive patented* AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety are standard. A.B.C. E.R. Designed by Jim Hammond for dive and whitewater rescue use, the A.B.C. E.R. has a blunt tip that allows prying, and also won’t puncture air compartments if accidentally dropped. Dual cutting edges, one Razor-Sharp, and one Triple-Point™ Serrated, give versatility in cutting lines, nets, and vegetation. The A.B.C.’s Zytel sheath with dual attachment panels and black stainless spring steel clip allows eight carry modes and countless variations. Black finish brass Chicago screws allow adjustment of the knife compression fit into the sheath. Equally important, they are used for a multitude of attachment orientations: on diving buoyancy compensators and pocket flaps, webbing, with dive leg straps, on PFDs, or with a neck cord.
