Emerson Knives have built a reputation for their extreme strength, edge retention, and quality. Emerson Knives are made with elite military and law enforcement groups in mind, as failure is not an option. The Emerson CQC-14 SNUBBY was designed for the states where the law prohibits the carrying of a pocket knife with a blade longer than 3 inches. The CQC-14's blade measures 2.7 inches, while maintaining a full size handle which allows the knife to still carry a heavyweight punch. The SNUBBY folding knife also features a razor sharp Conventional V ground blade, G-10 textured handles, titanium liner lock, and Emerson's patented Wave feature. The Wave feature is a unique one handed opening feature that allows the knife to be opened quickly as it is removed from the pocket.
