The CRKT M16-14ZLEK Large Tanto Zytel w/Triple Point Serrations is a robust and tactical everyday carry (EDC) knife designed for versatility and emergency situations. Crafted with precision and functionality in mind, this knife reflects the expertise of its designer, Kit Carson of Kentucky, and pays homage to his legacy through the M16 series.

One of the key features of the M16-14ZLEK is its InterFrame construction, incorporating a 420J2 stainless steel liner for durability and strength. The automated liner safety, a notable innovation, takes safety to the next level. This safety mechanism enhances user confidence and ensures that the knife is ready for action when needed.

The design incorporates a distinctive tanto blade with triple-point serrations, providing excellent cutting performance and versatility. The blade is crafted from AUS-8 steel, known for its durability and resistance to corrosion. The grey titanium nitride finish adds a touch of sophistication to the overall aesthetic.

In emergency situations, the M16-14ZLEK proves its practicality with integrated features. The Carson flipper includes a seat belt cutter, offering a reliable tool for quick and efficient belt or cord cutting. Additionally, the tungsten carbide window breaker at the butt end provides a valuable resource for breaking glass in critical situations.

The knife’s practicality extends to its carry options. Equipped with a pocket clip, the M16-14ZLEK supports two-position carry on belts or webbing, with full reversibility for left or right-handed tip-down carry. This adaptability ensures that users can carry and access the knife according to their preference and convenience.

With an overall weight of 175.7 grams and an overall length of 23.5 cm, the CRKT M16-14ZLEK Large Tanto Zytel w/Triple Point Serrations strikes a balance between portability and functionality. It is an excellent choice for individuals seeking a reliable and versatile EDC knife that excels in both everyday tasks and emergency scenarios.
