Back and ready for action. Reimagined from the late Kit Carson's fan-favorite M16, this modern tactical folding knife packs three revolutionary innovations into a single design. Locked and loaded, the M16-04DB combines Deadbolt, Assisted Opening, and IKBS ball bearing pivot system, creating the ultimate everyday carry you'll definitely want to have on your side. It might be a classic, but this knife is built to perform in the modern world.
When the late Kit Carson released the original M16 years ago, he perhaps didn't realize this would be the start of a whole new legacy. Jumping to today, the refreshed design emerges with a bang--now built with three times the power. Working in tandem, Ken Onion's lightning-fast Assisted Opening matches seamlessly with Flavio Ikoma's IKBS ball bearing pivot system, achieving a super smooth and quick deployment action. Then, thanks to Flavio's Deadbolt, the 3.89" tanto D2 steel blade stays sturdily in place as you brandish it across the most stubborn of surfaces.
Built with a lightweight aluminium handle for added strength and easy gripping, the M16-04DB steps forward as the largest out of the reimagined M16 series (compared to the M16-02DB and M16-03DB). So if you're searching for a time-tested design that punches above its weight in performance, it doesn't get much better than the M16-04DB.
