There are many reasons custom knife makers choose an InterFrame build with stainless steel liners and G10 scales in preference to aluminum or even titanium scales. First, the aggressive G10 texture gives unparalleled grip. Second, it is very strong. Third, it is lightweight. And finally, G10 is an insulator with a low specific heat. Therefore, it is cooler to grip in the beating desert sun, and warmer to grip at subfreezing temperatures.
These M21 models also feature the very popular “Carson Flipper” blade extension, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.
AutoLAWKS automatic knife safety is in all M21 models, which converts them into virtual fixed blades when their blades are open and locked.
As is standard practice on CRKT folders, lubrous washers at the blade pivot assure velvety-smooth one-hand opening and closing, using Kit Carson’s trademark dual checkered thumb studs which also act as a blade stop.
