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-8 is a battle-harden veteran that is perfectly balanced in both the forward and reverse grip. The CQC-8 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.
