Description: Ernest Emerson is a pioneer in both custom and production knives. Due to the popular demand for his customs by civilians and members of the armed forces alike, the wait list for one of his handmade knives grew exponentially. In 1996 Emerson Knives, Inc. was founded. In every major theater of operation the US is deployed in -- "on or off the books" -- an Emerson knife has been used, and used hard. Ernest Emerson prides himself on making a 100% American-made product that will serve its owner for a lifetime.
The Emerson CQC-8 is an icon in the tactical knife industry. Designed to be used in both saber and reverse grip when open, the "banana" as it is affectionately known, can trace its roots to the Bob Taylor/ Al Mar Warrior and the Bill Moran ST-23. The 154CM stainless steel blade features a stone washed finish, plain edge, upper swedge, and a conventional V grind with an asymmetrical edge. A thumb disc makes right or left hand opening easy and convenient, while the patented Emerson Wave opener makes one-handed opening the fastest of any folding knife.
Textured G-10 scales provide positive traction in any grip style. The slim format lends itself well to using the knife in a closed position as an impact device and is at home in evening attire as casual wear despite being all business. The CQC-8 has been "famous in the worst places" due to its popularity with everyone from the SAS to the SEALs. Truly a modern classic design that is combat-proven.
