All models of the M16 series are perfectly balanced, and every detail has a working purpose. One handed opening is velvet smooth, the result of Teflon bearings at the pivot. Use the ambidextrous thumb studs or the Carson flipper to deploy the blade with lightning speed. Weight is cut down by drilling precision holes in the handle material. With a variety of blade shapes and sizes there is a M16 knife for you. This mid-size model features a partially serrated spear point blade with a Bead-Blast finish.
