Columbia River CRKT M16-13M Military Combo Edge Knife
Gary Paul Johnston knows what it's like to put your life on the line daily, he did it as a commander with the Shaker Heights Police Department. He tells the story of the creation of his 1* logo like this: "Back in 1986, my SWAT unit was fortunate during actual raids, but we seemed to average at least one minor injury per practice session. I decided to create something to remind everyone to be more careful.
Gary went on to design the logo in a shield shape similar to the U.S. Army's Big Red 1. It not only looks sharp and reminds one to be careful, but it provides the important stress relieving element of humor to police, fire, medical emergency and military teams who find themselves operating in a high risk environment and living on the edge.
The M16 M models are identical in construction to CRKT's popular construction to our popular aluminum M16, offering the same sure-grip contoured handles of 6061 T6 aluminum, hard anodized in Olive Drab. The stainless steel locking liners with friction grooves are also black Teflon® plated, and give positive locking with limited access, for superior safety.
All 1* designs feature AUS-8 stainless steel blades, chosen for edge retention and durability, black titanium nitride coated. Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ serrated edges for rugged cutting tasks that break down standard cutting edges. All models feature the "Carson Flipper" extension to the blade, which aids opening and acts as an individual blade guard.
