In the process of developing our line of Carson special forces G10 M16® and M21™ models, it became apparent that there was a demand for these models from coalition forces serving in desert environments. So here are three models with Desert Tan blade and scales. Just like their black tactical counterparts, these knives share a unique design offering a combination of Carson SF series features requested by military procurement specialists. All have combined Razor-Sharp and patented (1) Veff™ Serrated edges. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— up to now rare in folding knives. Blade and scales are non-reflective Desert Tan. Premium 8Cr14 stainless steel blades receive titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit’s trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. On all models, one-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth. The open InterFrame build uses Desert Tan scales of G10, and stainless steel liners with friction grooves. G10 is often preferred for its aggressive gripping texture, light weight, and the insulating properties which make it cooler in heat and warmer in cold than metal. All models feature our exclusive patented (2) AutoLAWKS™ safety, which automatically turns the folders into fixed blades when the blade is opened and locked. M16®-13DSFG Slim Profile G10. This model features a 3.50” (89 mm) dual grind Tanto blade and is ideal when weight and bulk must be kept to a minimum. It weighs only 4.0 ounces. All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing— tip up, tip down, left or right. (Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry.) They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces desert use. Dual Grind Tanto Blade, Combined Razor-Sharp & Veff Serrated Cutting Edge Blade: Length: 3.50” (89 mm) Thickness: 0.12” (3.0 mm) Steel: 8Cr14, 58-59 HRC Closed: Handle length: 4.75” (121 mm) Open: Overall length: 8.25” (210 mm)
