Description: Lt. Colonel David Grossman is an icon in the military and tactical world and he approached Ernest Emerson with a request for an official company knife. A former Airborne Ranger and West Point instructor, he is the world’s leading authority on the effects of stress and combat and how they affect an individual when faced with life and death decisions in that environment. “It’s important that the user must be able to open the knife under high stress so I’d need it to have a flipper. With your wave, thumb button, and flipper it’ll be the most deployable knife ever built, even in a gross motor skills environment. The rest of the design I’ll leave up to you,” he said. Ernest started designing a folder that will change the way you think about Emerson Knives.
The Rangemaster Sheepdog is a medium size folder with some important features that have never before been featured on Emerson Knives. It is the first Emerson design to feature a bearing system in the pivot rather than washers and the first Emerson knife to feature a flipper. It’s like no other Emerson design.
The 3-1/2 inch bowie (clip point) blade is made from 154CM and features a stonewash finish. Emerson's patented Wave opening feature allows the knife to be opened with one hand while it is drawn from the pocket. You can also use the ambidextrous flipper or the thumb disc as alternative ways to deploy the knife.
Ergonomic, coarse, black G10 scales offer a secure and comfortable grip. Jimping along the handle and wave mechanism offers a solid thumb purchase. A lanyard hole is included in the handle. The pocket clip can be mounted for left or right-handed tip-up carry.
