Great EDC Self-Defense Blade

I have always associated CRKT with quality (regardless of price point) and this blade does not disappoint. Be careful unwrapping and handling the knife right out of the box... mine was razor sharp out of the box. The size and design are perfect for front clip/pocket carry exhibiting a sleeker profile without obstructing your hand reaching in for keys or coins. And, I found the grip to be well suited for reverse grip self-defense -- in lieu of a kubaton. I've carried a tactical folding knife with tanto tip for some time and after handling the CRKT M16-01KZ, I've found a blade that I'm happy to adopt as my new EDC self-defense knife. The blade is everything it is advertised to be and well worth the price.

Tight fit

This is a great design and fits well in the pocket or clipped to belt. It opens with ease and can be adjusted with your thumb for friction. Very solid frame that has great contour for the hand. Excellent steel for the blade; with just a few touches of a good stone it can be exceptionally sharp. Over-all an excellent product at a fair price.

I've carried one for years and cannot even imagine a better knife for everyday carry. It's a top notch recommendation!

compact, light, fits well in the pocket; decent sized blade. Not as sharp as my ceramic blade but I don't have to worry about breaking it and easier to sharpen, I assume. Tricky to reclose, takes a little practice. I bought it as an all-around working knife but haven't had it long enough to evaluate it long term. (BTW I reserve top ratings only for exceptional products so 4 stars does not mean anything bad)
