Based on Kit Carson's custom designs, the M21-14SF Special Forces Big Dog folding knife from Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) features contoured handles of black, hard anodized 6061 T6 aluminum with a perimeter radius. The stainless steel locking liners with friction grooves give positive locking, and the blade steel is constructed from AUS 8 stainless with a combined razor-sharp and triple-point serrated edge. The blade also receives a black titanium nitride coating for maximum corrosion resistance. This aluminum InterFrame build SF folder shares a unique design offering a combination of Carson M16 Series features requested by military procurement specialists. Kit's trademark dual checkered thumb studs are standard. One-hand opening and closing is quick and smooth. It also features CRKT's exclusive patented AutoLAWKS automatic safety, which turns the folder into a virtual fixed blade automatically. All knives in this series are equipped with clip options that allow four-position carry on belts or webbing. Note, however, that these knives are not designed for tip-up in-pocket carry. They are special knives, designed by the military for special forces use. AutoLAWKS safety system (view larger). AutoLAWKS Knife Safety An automatic safety mechanism for folding knives, AutoLAWKS was invented by Columbia River Knife & Tool as an enhancement to Ron Lake and Michael Walker's design to prevent the locking liner from accidentally releasing when the knife is open and locked. As the folder blade is locked in place by the locking liner, the spring-loaded AutoLAWKS lever rotates forward, and the metal tang comes between the locking liner and frame to ensure that the folder is a virtual fixed blade. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to accidentally release the liner lock when the AutoLAWKS lever is activated and if the blade pivot is properly adjusted. Designer Info Kit Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, is a retired professional soldier, rising to the level of Sergeant Major.
