Emerson Knives is proud to announce another evolution in the life of the Emerson CQC-7, the Emerson CQC-7BW Flipper aka the Flipper 7. This may just be the ultimate evolution of the tactical folding knife. This knife is the epitome of the 21st century tactical folder. It now features 154CM steel, GTC stainless 440C bearings and they are now equipped with the flipper opening technology. This is still an Emerson CQC-7 but it’s like comparing a 1960’s era F4 Phantom jet to a F22 Raptor Stealth Fighter. There’s just no going back. With the flipper opening system, the Emerson “wave” and the thumb disc this knife could be called the first “triple play” tactical folding knife. And in a high stress tactical or emergency situation this knife gives you three options to bring it into action. It is by far the slickest, fastest, and hardest knife you will ever own.
