Overview

Columbia River M16-14FD CRKT M16-14FD Fire Department 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 FD models are newly designed to meet the special requirements of fire fighting. Handles are CNC machined Fire Engine Red G10, which is light, strong and insulates against heat conductivity. In addition, the G10 handles have a very aggressive checked pattern for better grip in wet conditions.

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.

One-hand opening and closing is velvet smooth, the result of Teflon® bearings. The ambidextrous thumb stud with checkered surfact provides instant access in any circumstance. Every model features a removable black Teflon® plated stainless steel clothing/gear club.
