Kershaw Knives

Kershaw Knives and Emerson Knives have joined forces on a series of knives that combine the precision engineering of Kershaw with Emerson's uncompromising functional design. 

The CQC-3K features a modified tanto blade for slicing and punching capability. This is a smaller tanto with an under-three-inch blade. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. A textured G-10 front scale in basic black offers a secure grip. The handle back is stainless steel with black-oxide coating. The handle is strongly contoured to fit securely in the palm of the hand. For a safe and solid blade lock up, the CQC-3K has a frame lock.

The CQC-3K is a manual opener using either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson "wave shaped feature." This opening feature enables the knife to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use. A small wave-shaped tab on the top of the blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it comes out of the pocket. This instant-open feature is a favorite among military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users.

This knife is a hybrid design based off the blade shape of the Emerson Bulldog with an ergonomic handle shape that's extremely comfortable in a strong saber grip. The pocketclip is reversible for left- or right-handed carry.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
My Favorite EDC Blade
Opens instantly, solid lockup, unbelievable cutting power for the price. The tanto point makes it perfect for punching through tough material and is just as good for slicing tasks. At this price you'd might as well get one and see if you like it.

Pros: None
Cons: Ease of Opening
nearly perfect....
Very nice knife, small but good grip! Only small problem ... quite unsightly white washer who is a little position open and closed ... Otherwise, beautiful object, good grip, good weight, sharpening the hair, great opening system ... once you master it! Received in less than a week, impeccable delivery, as usual with knifecenter! (Très joli couteau, petite taille mais bonne tenue en main ! Seul petit hic...une rondelle blanche assez disgracieuse qui se voit un peu en osition ouverte et fermée... Sinon, bel objet, bon grip, bon poids, affutage au poil, super système d'ouverture... une fois qu'on le maîtrise ! Reçu en moins d'une semaine, livraison impeccable, comme d'habitude chez knifecenter!)

The wait is over, but this one is too small for me...
Like many of you, I have been waiting for these Kershaw-Emerson's since the SHOT show. I have small hands and this is too small even for me. I do own actual Emerson knives but it is great to have an option of this price range for a knife Ernest would put his name on. I will just have to get my hands on one of the bigger models.
