How are you? I have a CRKT M16-14ZSF. What is the bit size (T#) torx tool that I would need to remove the three torx screws to re-position the clip? Please let me know, so that I can buy the correct torx tool bit size. Thanks.

I no longer have that particular model but a T6 works on all of my M16s

All the same I suggest you get a quality set rather than just the one tool as a good Torx set(I opted for the 'security' version) comes in handy for all sorts of tasks
I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!

I would advise going to a hardware store (the bigger the name, the better) and buying individual torx drivers that fit a few knives you bring. Opt for a brand of drivers that carry a lifetime warranty (Craftsman is pretty much tops there) that covers wear and tear. The heads of your drivers will eventually twist. I find myself replacing my drivers (mine are T6, T8, and T9- those 3 cover pretty much all production folders) roughly every 3-4 months.

All 3 of those drivers cost me roughly 12 bucks.

OR...


Buy a quality driver kit with hardened bits and it will last you a lifetime.


Like when working with Guns (or anything else),

...quality tools designed for the task at hand are the only way to go.




A note on those Torx bits:


Several sizes might seem to fit any given head size,

...but only one will fit it securely.

I learned that multiples fit. Hence why I bought both t8 and t9. Had a few different knives where t8 fit but wound up damaging my driver. I would still advise something with a lifetime warranty, though. A little assurance is never a bad thing.
