CRKT Turns Kit Carson’s Iconic Tactical Design Into A Refined EDC Knife

Feb 12, 2020

Category: Gear

Though he sadly passed back in 2014, Kit Carson’s presence is still felt strongly in the knife world. In fact, his M16 and M21 designs — bot still produced to this day — are considered some of the best and most iconic ever made. Now, his iconic tactical silhouettes have been pared down into a more refined everyday carry knife called the CRKT M40-03

This reimagined flipper folding knife still boasts Carson’s signature silhouette, but with some notable upgrades and alterations. For starters, it now has a solid handle crafted from glass-reinforced nylon and 6063 aluminum — with a smart-looking geometric pattern — and its mated to a 1.4116 steel drop point blade. The biggest alteration, however, might be the inclusion of two Flavio Ikoma (another exceptional knife designer) innovations: the Deadbolt locking mechanism and an IKBS ball-bearing pivot. This exceptional, updated, modern take on Kit Carson’s beloved designs will be available soon for $140.
