    Picked up a nice little blade......

    Went to WalMart and was browsing the knife case and decided to spring $20 on a CRKT M16-10KZ. I had heard of some folks having trouble with the AutoLAWKS when trying to close onehanded....I find it easy. Go figure. Anyway, nice little knife for the money, the blade seems pretty tight with little or no rocking back and forth, and it opens nice and quick with the Carson flipper. Very sharp out of the box, I'm already giving cardboard boxes and rope the evil eye.

    I may upgrade to a Benchmade later on but for now this CRKT will do the trick!

    My wife and son gave me CRKT MT. WHITNEY for Fathers day 8 yrs. ago. It is still in great shape. I don't carry it anymore because it was my first Fathers day gift, but it is still worthy of being carried. I would say you got a good knife at a great price.

    I have a CKRT M16-14 (bigger tanto blade) that is my field duty folder, it has stood up to all the jobs ive used it for so far, althought it is a model without the Auto-lawks automatically coming on which i prefer.

    Good knives, very popular with the military, it should serve you well.

    For the $ I've found CRKT to be a pretty good value. One suggestion, some of their older tanto-style bladed folders were chisel ground (grind angle comes from only one side of the blade). In my experience these edges are proned to chipping/flaking. No problem, however, with CRKT warranty making it good. I just requested a replacement model that was conventionally ground from both sides.

    I picked up one of these a few months ago, for the money I couldn't beat it. The auto lock is an additional lock right behind the blade that engages when its open all the way. It also has a traditional liner lock. It is fairly easy to unlock one-handed once you get the hang of it.

    CRKT makes a decent knife. In fact, their knives with the AutoLawks feature are the only liner-lock knives that I would ever consider purchasing.

    I got one of the M16's. I got it as a bundle by. The M16 and the Mini My Tighe. I LOVE the Tighe, and the M16 sits on my nightstand. I just can't get the hang of that AutoLawks thingy.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    The AutoLawks is really easy once you get the concept. First, press the little red lever on the back all the way down with the index finger. While holding it down use your thumb to move the blade lock out of the way (to the left). Once the blade lock is moved you can let go of the red lever with your index finger and use it to close the blade.

    Sounds complicated but I think folks are under the impression you have to do all three at once. It literally took me 5 seconds after reading the little booklet. I like it.
