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-4K features a drop-point blade for multi-purpose cutting capability. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. A textured G-10 front scale in coyote brown offers a secure grip. The handle back is stainless steel with black-oxide coating. For a safe and solid blade lock up, the CQC-4K has a frame lock.

The CQC-4K 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 By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use.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.
  • 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: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Kershaw Emerson CQC-4K is the best EDC frame lock I’ve carried in some time, hands down. The weight is perfect. The deployment is swift and stealthy bar none. For the price of this frame lock, the quality and practicality are impeccable. It will be some time before I replace this knife.

Favorite Knife/ New EDC
Been in my pocket, or my hnd since I got it. Can't afford a real Emerson so this is great, can't go wrong with Kershaw in my eyes. I'm not a crazy steel snob like some people out there, this seems decent enough razor sharp, holding its edge pretty well, and I've used it to cut through an extension cord, boxes, and a day of opening rock salt bags, all in all holding a nice edge and no corrosion from the salt (I did oil at end of snow day) I'm probably gonna get the XL soon wish it came with black blade.( coating helps fight corrosion, and looks better to me) Just wish they used flat screws like Emerson does instead of the button head ones. And wave opener is awesome lightning quick, and convenient knife comes outta pocket ready to go, and clip is functional and looks great in pocket

I love mine
This knife is compact but has a great blade shape. The "Wave" feature takes some practice but makes deployment a lightning quick operation. Buy this knife you will not regret it. Its cheap enough to get one for you and one for a loved one.
