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 CRKT 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.

Hails from a legend, and is ready for action.
