Designed by our military consultants, these two extreme-duty Special Operations Tactical Fixed Blades (SOTFB) are built to withstand the hardest possible duty in combat. The knives themselves are built like rocks, by far the heftiest full-tang fixed blades Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) has ever offered.
All M60s have AUS 8 stainless steel blades with titanium nitride coatings for superior corrosion resistance. Their injection-molded black Zytel® scales have an aggressive operator’s pattern. A double guard hilt, with thumb friction grooves and pronounced butt pommel, gives maximum security and grip.
M60-14PK Drop Point. This 4.375” (11.1 cm) blade version of the M60 offers versatility for a variety of cutting tasks, with a curved bottom grind and dull top grind, also with Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges.
M60-14NK Tanto. This model is purely tactical, with a recurved dual grind 4.375” (11.1 cm) Tanto blade with Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point™ Serrated edges.

M60-16NK Tanto. Our military consultants asked for the M60 with a 6.125” (15.6 cm) blade. Our new models weigh a hefty 10.6 ounces (301 g).
M60-16NK Desert. We also offer that larger M60 in desert dress, with Desert Tan Zytel scales and Desert Tan titanium nitride blade coating.
Tactical Sheath. We designed the most versatile tactical sheath possible based on the needs of special forces teams. The black Cordura®/Zytel® sheath has an injection-molded Zytel liner which prevents blade penetration and helps secure the knife. It has an integral belt loop for conventional high carry. There is also a removable adjustable drop leg extender and two adjustable removable leg straps, which allow low carry. There are two security handle straps with snaps, one removable, to give just the right combination of access and security, depending on the mission’s terrain and underbrush. All hardware and grommets are black. High and low grommets allow attachment of the sheath with paracords if preferred. Finally, a utility pocket with Velcro closure, adjustable for length, will carry a variety of folding knives, multipurpose tools or sharpeners.
We don’t know of any tactical knife/sheath system better designed to meet the needs of today’s modern military.
