Question for Kit Carson

Mar 12, 1999
When do you think we might see the "flipper" versions of the smaller CRKT M16 knives, e.g. M16-03 and 12?
I asked Paul Gillespie at CRKT about this oe time and he said that they will switch over to the flippered blades for the 03/13 and 02/12 models when the current supply of non-flippered blades depletes. Exactly "when" is kind of difficult to pin down. Unless Kit has received some updated news, this is the current word from CRKT.

Dexter hit it on the head.

The zytel versions of the 03/13 and 02/12 will have the flipper on them. Dex put a picture up a few weeks ago in the Review forum.

Guess I should have designed them with both to begin with, huh.
Thank you Kit. I love the aluminum versions I own (3 knives) I'm hoping that somehow you'll arrive at the decision to put the flipper on these as well.
Best of luck
