Emerson Knives
This is the legal, carry knife, you've been waiting for. Thanks to the request from my friend Harry, we now make a knife you can legally carry (in most areas) yet still pack a heavyweight punch. The blade is under 3 inches long - way under 3 inches. Yes, it has a full size handle, so you know you've got a real knife in your hand. This is the ultimate pocket protector.

The CQC-14 features our Patented "wave shaped opening feature" or Remote Pocket Opener. In an emergency or injury situation the knife can be opened with one hand as it is drawn from the pocket.

Things you may want to know.
The Snubby is a fantastic model. I often travel in areas where blade restrictions are in the 2.5" range, but the snubby is close enough for most not to care. The edge is great, with enough belly for work, and the Wave (of course) makes this a great protection asset. That being said, If you have never owned an Emerson before, it may be beneficial to know that these are Titanium linerlocks. Titanium is very strong, but wears easily in this capacity against the harder blade steel. This translates to a knife that will perform day in and day out, as long as you don't use it day in and day out. Emersons will last a long time if - #1 you dont play with it. (if you plan on getting this for self defence, have a trainer made for practice.) don't constantly open and close it for no reason. #2 you do not use this as a utility knife. (I know I use my utility knives a lot, every day. Opening, cutting, and closing many times each day. This will cause your emerson's lock to wear significantly in a short amount of time - about 6 months.) #3 you don't drop it on the blade or over-sharpen it. The heat treatments on Emerson knives leave the steel a little softer than your average 58/59/60 RC blade. This is because the Emerson philosophy (rightfully so) would rather have the blade dull/deform/bend rather than chip/break, as these are designed as back-up weapons - not utility knives. and lastly #4 The edge grind is a single bevel at about a 35 deg angle. When you do sharpen it, KEEP IT THERE. The plus to buying Emerson knives? You get a well built, long lasting edged weapon for defense purposes that can sometimes take on utility tasks if not called on for them regularly. You get a solid, dependable, tough-as-nails silent partner for those walks down dark alleys. You get "Emerson Ergonomics" which melt into your hand like a sheet of Old Owsley's Special brew. You also get 5 star customer support and top notch free warranty service and personable "employees" translate- either Ernest or Mary Emerson - to communicate your problems, issues, or just sing praises to.

Great Knife
This is a good sturdy knife. The blade is sharp right out of the box. The handle is very comfortable. The wave pocket opener works very smoothly but takes some practice. Overall this is a very good knife and i plan on buying more EMERSON knives.
