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-8K features a single-bevel tanto blade—which means it is razor sharp. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. G-10 handles provide secure grip and a locking liner means safe and solid blade lock up.

The CQC-8K 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 By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use.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.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Kershaw Emerson 6044 TBKK CQC-8K
Sharp out of box. Extra area + Jimping on spine good for thumb rest for added support during slashing or index finger for fine cutting. Opens well and lock up up and down/side to side movement is tight. Weight a bit heavy though. Handle is weird looking. But for the price, in a word... AWESOME! Thanks Ernie.

excellent knife at a great price
this is a very well made knife. It came reasonably sharp, but I like a razor edge, a piece of leather and some jewelers rouge and I have a razors edge. I liked it so much, i bought a second 1. if they make the Roadhouse I'll buy two of those also.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness
nice handle
Just picked this up at my local ace hardware for $45. The handle material seems high quality. The blade is dull as well. I worry the printing on the blade is not and will scratch off over short time. All of the screws on the knife are scuffed from poor machining. Overall it's a nice knife but it's not a $60 classic kershaw as they retail it. Its a mass production china blade with a nice handle with smooth locking mechanism. This knife is going to be worked. I wear down and sharpen my knives frequently. My $20 knives I usually buy last at most six months. I'm curious if spending the extra money for a kershaw is worth it for a working knife. I should update to say how it's held up.
