Overview
Kit made only a few of these Modified Model 4 Crosslocks during the late 1990's - not only is this a very special style but as only a few were made, quite rare. The "A" or face side offers the drop point blade while the "B" or pocket clip side offers the sheepfoot blade with full serations. Each opens smoothly and effortlessly with a fine lockup and easy linerlock closures. The handle has bead blasted titanium scales and liners, stainless steel backspacers and tip down clip. A unique design and a rare knife, which provides two different blade styles. Both blades have a little vertical blade play, otherwise excellent condition. 2.5" blade 6.25" overall 3.75" closed.

ABOUT THE MAKER
Carson, Kit
Kit Carson who passed away in 2014, was instrumental in popularizing the flipper style of folding knife, Kit made a wide range of tactical and utility folders, the best known of which are the M16, M4 and M21. Reproduced by Columbia River Knife & Tool in a wide range of iterations, the M16 has been one of the company’s best-selling and most successful knives for many years. As revered as he was for his knives, Kit was more respected for his willingness to teach any and all how to make them. When knives and knifemaking exploded on the Internet circa the late 1990s and early 2000s, his mentoring benefited perhaps as many new and upcoming potential makers as anyone before or since. A voting member of the Knifemakers’ Guild, Kit spent 20 years in the Army, retiring as a master sergeant in 1993. He grew up in North Georgia, interested in all things mechanical from the start. He began making knives in 1972, the same year he was drafted into the Army.
