Emerson CQC7B Folding Knife 3.3" Black Plain Tanto Blade with Wave
This is the first Emerson knife that I have had the pleasure of owning, but it certainly lives up to the praise I have read on-line and my resulting expectations! Although at first the blade seemed tight and it was difficult to open, I immediately knew that I was feeling the precision movement of parts well crafted, and spent a couple of days just opening and closing the knife to "break it in." As I expected, the blade movement now feels like silk, and the blade springs out smoothly, and unbelievably fast. The sharpness of the blade, the materials, and the craftsmanship are all first-rate, and I would recommend this knife to anyone in search of a great, reasonably priced all-purpose/survival/combat knife.The one disappointing point is the clip. It is fastened so that the knife can be easily carried in (and drawn from) the right pocket of one's pants. There are no holes, however, on the reverse side which results in very limited options for carrying. I'm sure it would not be difficult during the production process to provide three holes in the opposite side so that the user can decide on his own which is more suitable to his or her needs. In my case, carrying the knife in my right pants pocket is not convenient, and I carry it in my right rear pocket. This means that I cannot make use of the wave function, which is indeed annoying. Furthermore, deciding which side you want the clip is something which can only really be decided after handling the knife and trying different ways of carrying it. The clip should be interchangeable - I'm sure that very few users have the tools to drill their own holes. I consider this point to be a serious issue with this knife, as different situations require different methods of carry, and if you can't carry your knife with you it won't be of any help.With the exception of the clip, however, I consider this knife to be basically perfect for what it's designed for. On the other hand, the clip issue would cause me to hesitate before purchasing another.

This is the 2nd version of this knife (the first was a benchmade w/out the wave feature). And this is my 4th Emerson knife. So there was only one surprise when I received it, the blade screw was rescessed into the handle! This was the only problem that I had with Emerson knives because once you started to carry them, the finish to the screw head would wear off. Next to the older knives, it seems the grip handles don't match up as well, but the newer knife is smoother to the touch. Other than the wave feature compress to the other Emersons, this is a 9.7 out of 10 with the older knives. Still one of the best carrying tactical folders out there. Sharp, locks up well, quaility material. What more can you ask for?
