The swedged and recurved spear point blades are made of premium 8Cr14 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* 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. Every model features a removable Teflon-plated stainless steel clothing/gear clip. All fasteners, including the clip screws, are Torx. Liners, hardware and clip are black oxide coated.

Buy in confidence from a local seller with local returns and warranty! You must be 18 years old to buy this knife. This knife is not a weapon and is purely a tool. I want to be 100% clear that this item is not intended to be used and in way do I suggest that it is to be used to inflict violence, whether actual or threatened against any person or fictional creature such as, but not limited to a Zombie, Unicorn, Cracken, Medusa, Bigfoot, Alligator Man and especially native Drop Bear and Yowies.
Any images or words on the knife are for brand recognition only. Any advertisements from the manufacturer in America, are made purely to market to the American market, they are not supported by me. This knife is a proper and useful tool to be used by hunters, campers, outdoorsmen and for collection. Anything in the description that suggest that it is to be used to inflict violence will be removed shortly, if not already removed.
Words such as Combat, Tactical and Fighting refer to the strength of the knife only and are mentioned to confirm that this knife could be used as a tool in a military operation as a TOOL to cut ropes, dig holes, eat food with, open items and even as a last-ditch rescue tool to cut your way out of a wrecked vehicle. It is not a weapon. These words are not there to promote violence and I wanted to make it clear in what context these words are used by the manufacturers as well as my adds.
Any pictures of skulls, dragons or other animals etc on the knives are there as a way to promote peaceful use of the knife / tool and for artistic purposes only. Skulls serve as a warning to not use the knife inappropriately, similar to a skull on a poison bottle.
