CRKT M21-14G CARSON DESIGN G10 HANDLE COMBO EDGE FOLDING KNIFE
There are many reasons custom knifemakers choose an InterFrame build with stainless steel liners and G10 scales in preference to aluminum or even titanium scales. First, the aggressive G10 texture gives unparalleled grip. Second, it is very strong. Third, it is lightweight. And finally, G10 is an insulator with a low specific heat. Therefore, it is cooler to grip in the beating desert sun, and warmer to grip at subfreezing temperatures.
These M21 models also feature the very popular "Carson Flipper" blade extension, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.
Unlike the typical custom knifemaker, we are able to engineer our patented (2) AutoLAWKS™ automatic knife safety into all M21 models, which converts them into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked.
As is standard practice on CRKT folders, Teflon® bearings at the blade pivot assure velvety-smooth one-hand opening and closing, using Kit Carson's trademark dual checkered thumb studs which also act as a blade stop.
