Today I picked up a new CRKT M-16-12Z. Very nice for aomeone on a limited budget for a carry folder. No wiggle in the blade when open. The Carson "Flipper" is pretty fast in getting the knife open. Over all for $35 it is more knife than what you pay for.
I have the CRKT M1 Lightfoot. It is a really decent knife for the $59 smackers. I originally wanted the M-16, but when the place I ordered from notified me it was on back order I changed my mind. Nonetheless I've been very pleased. Enjoy your blade.
Coincidentally, I bought a new CRKT M16-14Z partially-serrated ($38.99) and a new CRKT M1 Lightfoot plain edge ($41.99) 2 weeks ago. Both, good knives for a modest price.
The only problem I'm having is that I usually like to carry my knife clipped inside of my left front pants pocket. Since my M16's pocket clip is not reversible, the Carson Flipper is tearing up my left hand whenever I slip it in to and out of my pocket. I suppose I'm going to have to find a different way of carrying it (IWB, possibly).
M16-02 EDC is mine. If you're having problems with the thumbstuds or flipper being sharp, you could fill them with some epoxy or PC7 or the like. If you hated it, you could pick it out with a dental pick later.
