Had the M-16 in desert tan. It was a good knife for the $. The autoLAWK system takes some getting use to but is very sturdy and felt like a fixed blade when locked. It was slightly larger than the Benchmade that it replaced. Downside was that the finish did not hold up as well as I would have liked in a Saltwater environment. It spotted up quick. Sorry- no experience with the Hissatu- yet. but I would not hesitate if I had the chance.

I carry an M-16 daily. Sharpens well and holds an edge good. Mine has been used, abused and still does what I ask it to. I have battoned it through pig a pig's neck, small saplings and hundreds of Squirrel bones without a single issue. My first one was used so much the liner lock was worn to the point thst it would slip all the way past the blade on the right side. I sent it back and received a new one in it's place. I'm still trying to wear it out.

Got a small KISS that I carry for work daily and a larger OIF (big lockblade like DirtyWorks) that were gifts from my son. The Iraqi Freedom one doesn't have as much of a serated blade as DirtyWorks'. Mine have held up well but I haven't had been around salt water.

The CRKTs are great the only problem I have seen with them is that the clip screws come out to easy even with lock tite I just got some in the mail from CRKT to put in my new clip and they sent the tool also all for free they paid for everything

I found one in a rental car that looked like it had been strapped to a claymore. The blade was broken. The break looked like it has shattered while being heated. The break was folded over to one side.
The handles were melted. very very weird.
It is on the side of the road.


Oh yeah, I have owned one.M16. Left it clipped on my cowboy boots in high school. Found it while packing up my closet after graduating college, 8 years later. Good times
The lever lock would not engage. CRKT replaced it.
Do not tell them I had been using it as a throwing knife

Last time I looked at them, they were all made in China. Just me personally, but I try to buy USA when ever I can.

I got a lot of the CRKT knives. I like'em, but I notice the metal spots very easy. I love'em though. Hard workin' knives. I like the newer ones the best, with that auto lock feature. And yes, those dang clips always seem to come off.

i have the N.E.C.K, I like it, its a nifty little fixed blade, the paracord wrap tickles a little bit though ha. probably not the highest quality, but i like it, especially for the money

I like the ones that I have. They are smooth opening and lock up tight.I think they are good tactical knives. They are not the cheapest and not the most expensive.If you get a genuine CRKT, it should have a small catalog in the box. I have read that there are some fake ones floating around.

I just sharpened the big fixed blade.......can't remember the name of it.....for my friend.

I have sharpened a lot of knives in my day and that had to have been the sharpest I have ever gotten a knife.

He took it out camping the next weekend and cleared some trails with it. He said it'll still treetop the hairs on his arm.

I have an older M1 lightfoot. Was a great knife, it just got to where it wouldn't hold an edge anymore. I'm sure if i took it to somebody to get it rebeveled it would be good to go for another few years, but I used it as an excuse to pick up a Benchmade 550 :)

I have a ryan plan b I have carried a pretty good bit. I like it real well. You can turn the clip on the sheath over and carry it upside down. I like that better than having the handle sticking me in the gut all the time. Maybe I should just lose some weight.

I found some M16s on ebay last year cheap enough that several people on my list got them for Christmas presents. They seemed to be pretty good rigs for the price. I hardly ever carry the one I kept for me. I have been carrying a byrd rescue for a good while. It weighs nothing and it was cheap enough I won't spend much time lamenting it when I loose it. And I will eventually.
