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-5K features a modified clip-point blade for versatile cutting capability. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. G-10 handles in olive drab provide secure grip and a locking liner means safe and solid blade lock up.

The CQC-5K 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 By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use.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 design based off the Emerson Commander model without the recurve to the blade 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.
  • 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.

Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, None
Falling Apart
I use(d) this knife for farm use on a daily basis for maybe two months. I'm not the easiest person on my gear but the experience I had with this knife is unacceptable. I have had nothing out of the ordinary happen to it. I use it maybe, at most, once a day. It now is falling apart. The screws on the back of the grip have come loose and fallen out somewhere and is no longer usable. Now, everyday I toss my knife into my key basket, but surely that is not enough to knock the screws loose. I've looked for the screws and can't find them. Either way, I wouldn't recommend this knife.

Good knife for the price
Bought this because of the design (Emerson) and am pleased with it. A good deal for the sale price. I would buy this again.
