A classic is reborn.

How do you take an already widely-celebrated knife and make it thrice as good? By taking the legendary M16® design imagined by one of the most notable knifemakers in history, then adding three groundbreaking innovations: Deadbolt®, Assisted Opening, and IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system. Returning with a compact tanto blade, the M16®-02DB doesn’t just come locked and loaded, its deployment is now faster than ever. Years ago, knife designer Kit Carson gave us a timeless classic. Now, it’s back with a whole new legacy to fulfill.
