Emerson Knives have built a reputation for their extreme strength, edge retention, and quality. They are also 100% Made in America. Emerson Knives are made with elite military and law enforcement groups in mind, as failure is not an option. The Emerson CQC-15 combines the piercing point of the CQC-7 with the cutting efficiency of the Commander to create a sturdy, aggressive, and ready for duty tactical knife. CQC-15 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.
