This knife has been a desire for a while. Like many l ve built a small collection. A coupe zt s. Benchmades. Almars. And even my ddr dominator. I love them all. But being a blue collar guy i need a heavy duty tough go to knife for my trade and some time edc. One that could stand up no matter what . This one has filled the need and more. Think of it as a tool. Not a safe queen. Not the most refined but rugged and strong. The one i want when i dont know what to expect. The build and materials used plus warranty make it a bargain for the price. Dan 2020

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Material, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
The first Emerson I bought was a Super CQC7. Decided to try it's "little" brother. Couldn't be more pleased. Build quality is excellent on this one, just like the last one. Blade is a little stiff at first, but even in the short amount of time I've had it, it is getting noticeably smoother. I've heard they are all like this. I would rather have it be a bit tight at first than be too loose. I know you can loosen the pivot, but i expect that just like on my Super, it will wear in a bit and be perfect. Blade is shaving sharp and easy to resharpen with the chisel grind. Like the two tone blade finish. Handles give a super grip. Wave feature makes it open fast out of the pocket. Jimping on the back of the blade gives decent thumb rest, but maybe they could relieve the handles a bit just behind the blade on the top to make the jimping there more effective. Unlocks smoothly, no sticking. I've read some reviews where people complained of poor build quality, but haven't seen that yet. Plan on buying more Emerson knives, so if I see any of that, I will let you know. Thanks to Knife Center for another great knife and their excellent service.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Overall Quality, None
Decent knife, given above average hype
I picked up one of these on a whim, and as I was curious about the wave feature, like supporting USA made products, and honestly, bought into the hype surrounding Emerson. It is a neat knife, and the wave concept is novel, but the knife itself is poorly constructed for the price. There seems to be no pride in craftsmanship, such as is found on less expensive USA made offereings from Spyderco, Benchmade, and Kershaw that I have obtained recently. The liners are jimped for traction, but the scale to liner fit was so bad, that these areas were rendered useless. The blade was horrible centered, and the ammt of blade play at an acceptable level of tension was disappointing. There are other issues with the knife's construction, but I digress. Neat knife concept, not thought out very well, and executed poorly.
