CRKT Carson M21 Aluminum Flipper Folder …
The swedged and recurved blade is ground to a spear point shape, using premium AUS 8 stainless steel in non-reflective finish to offer superior edge retention. The grind incorporates a false top edge and deep belly, yet retains a full width central spine for most of its length for maximum strength. Lubrous washers at the blade pivot assure velvety-smooth one-hand opening and closing. M21 models feature the “Carson Flipper” blade extension, which aids opening and acts as an additional blade guard.
The open build uses contoured handles of 6061 T6 aluminum are CNC machined with a perimeter radius for a comfortable grip with or without work gloves and skeletonized to reduce weight. There is a single stainless steel locking liner with friction grooves for positive locking. The automated liner safety sets a pin between the locking liner and the frame. This pin acts as an additional layer of safety for the LinerLock.
