EMEDCP: EDC-1 Multi-Tool
Emerson Knives
We would like to introduce you to the first "Emerson Multi-Tool", actually it's more like a swiss army knife on steroids. Our customers were after us for years to do this and we finally did it. We worked with Multitasker Tools, one of the finest Multitool manufactures in the business to bring the first Emerson Tool called the E.D.C (Every Day Carry) to the market. They are designed by Ernest Emerson and built by Multitasker in one of their offshore plants to the highest standards of quality, fit and finish and performance. They come in both serrated and non-serrated versions and the Micro Commander blade features the Emerson "wave feature" for ultra-quick opening.

Both screwdrivers for the EDC-1 multitool utilize a compact, patent-pending "toggle lock"; it has stops at 90 and 180 degrees, and the lockout toggle can be easily accessed even when wearing gloves. Not strong enough to secure a blade, but fine for a screwdriver. Simple and effective.

Good Product!
Everything is great about this multitool except for the fact that I put it in my cargo pocket hanging by the pocket clip and sometimes when I pull it out, the knife comes out very easily, so its halfway out without me even trying, which hasn't led to any incidents yet luckily. And the locking mechanism for the knife sometimes doesn't catch all the way so I have to give it a little push to lock fully.

Emerson Multitasker EDC-1
The Emerson has the blade length I was looking for. Black coloring gives it a professional appearance. The blade remains sharp after daily use for various scenarios. The tools (Screwdriver) have already come in very handy on two occasions when I was away from my toolbox. Locking mechanism is reliable and for me a big plus.

Tough little tool
I've carried a Emerson Commander for quite a while now and when I saw an EDC tool from them I had to have one. I have been using and abusing it for over 2 months now. When my EDC-1 arrived I was surprised by the weight. It isn't exactly light. However it does ride well in just about all my pants and shorts. Suit pants being the exception. It's still lighter than my Leatherman Surge and clipping in a pocket, it's less noticeable than a pouch on my belt. The blade came plenty sharp and after a little attention on a razor strop it was hair popping. No complaints on that front. The 90 degree locking feature on the drivers takes bit of getting used to. You can't just open it all the way, you have to stop at the 90 degree point and then depress the lock to move it 180 degrees. It does however lock up tight. At no time has it felt like it was going to close, no matter how much pressure was put against the lock. The finish is extremely tough. I have yet to scratch it anywhere except the Phillips point. I live in Southern New Mexico. We have super fine sand and dirt everywhere. If you work outside (which I do) it gets everywhere. After awhile you notice a grinding sound in knives and tools. The EDC-1 was no different. What was different and not the least bit easy was cleaning it. Now alot of people will just roll their eyes and say you should never take it apart. But to me that's like saying I should never field strip my rifle. Just plain dumb. The pivot screws that hold it together are difficult to move to say the least. I had to use gunsmithing screwdrivers to fit into the small screw heads under the wrench tool. I also had to put the tool in a vise in order to turn them. I still ended up damaging one of them. Assembly was just as difficult. That is my only real criticism. All in all this is a great little tool and I hope to see more items like this from Emerson in the future.
