Our aluminum InterFrame build SF folders share a unique design offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. The dual grind Tanto blades were specified because they offer maximum strength. The open build allows two Carson Flippers to be incorporated, resulting in a true hilt— very rare in folding knives. The M16®-14SF Big Dog Aluminum is our hefty utility version, with a 3.875″ (98 mm) dual grind Tanto blade and full-size handle with butt pommel. Blade, frame and hardware are non-reflective tactical black. The blade receives a black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. Kit’s trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth. It features our exclusive patented (1) AutoLAWKS™ automatic safety, which turns the folder into a virtual fixed blade automatically. Our aluminum frame SF features contoured scales of hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum, with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without gloves, stainless steel liners with friction grooves, and a premium AUS 8 stainless steel blade. The Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edge is standard. All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. Caution: These knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces use.
