At the request of those in the emergency services field, we have modified one 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 gave the M16-14ZER a polished finish to resist corrosion. Finally, we have priced it to be as affordable as possible. M16®-14Z E.R. New this year is the “Big Dog” M16. At the request of rescue professionals, we’ve taken Kit Carson’s popular M16-14 and added a seat belt cutter to the flipper and a tungsten carbide window breaker to the butt. Automobile side windows shatter with one quick whack from the butt of the knife. This hefty 6.2-ounce knife has a large 3.75″-long Triple-Point Combination Serrated Tanto blade that is able to tackle virtually any emergency task. If you’re a rescue professional, we think the M16-14ZER is the best value available for daily duty carry.
