Textured glass filled nylon scales and a dual stainless steel liner InterFrame. Assembled with glass filled nylon back spacers and Torx fasteners, the result is amazingly rigid. Glass filled nylon offers excellent toughness and resistance to solvents. Lubrous washers at the blade pivot and an adjustable pivot screw allow for perfect blade action. The blade is AUS 8CR15MoV high-carbon stainless steel with a bead-blast finish, which gives an ideal combination of toughness and edge-holding ability in a work knife, and also allows easy field-sharpening. The M16-10Z features a dual hollow grind Tanto-style blade with Combined Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge. Of course, if features the Carson Flipper, which speeds opening of the blade and acts as a blade guard when the blade is open. This knife features AutoLAWKS.
