KS6094BLK: 6094BLK CQC-1K
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-1K features a modified clip-point blade for versatile cutting capability and striking looks. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. A textured G-10 front scale in black offers a secure grip. The handle back is stainless steel with black-oxide coating. For a safe and solid blade lock up, the CQC-1K has a frame lock.

The CQC-1K 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 By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use.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 based off the Emerson Gentleman Jim model and 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.

Unusually Bad
The blade grind on this knife was terrible. On one side, the grind was good. On the other side, the grind was much larger and uneven. I am surprised by this because I own dozens of Kershaw knives that are some of my favorites. I wanted to buy some other series in this style knife but, I don't think so.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Great little knife!
Be warned this is a little knife. But, it's fit and finish is the best I've seen on a knife at this price point. This knife is perfect for a second carry knife or to carry as an EDC. The wave feature is great but takes a little practice to master on a knife this small. The one problem was the out of box box box sharpness but that was fixed easy enough.

Cons: None
Awesome blade.
For thirty dollars, this knife has the greatest fit and finish of anything I've carried, including $60 and up knives. My only criticism is it's a little on the small side, that being said the blade shape and quickness make up for that. It is a slim, very sharp, very slick blade. Down to the small details of the skull on the clip, wave opening, the embossing on the blade, the sharpness, the finish....I love it. I highly recommend the Emerson-Kershaw collabs.
