The larger size M21-04G and M21-14G models are heavy-duty work knives. They're available in your choice of Razor-Sharp or our exclusive Combined Razor-Sharp and patented 1 Veff™ Serrated edge grinds.
The swedged and recurved spear point blades are made of premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a non-reflective black titanium nitride finish which gives maximum corrosion resistance.
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, lubrous washers 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.
Every model features a removable stainless steel clothing/gear clip.
