GREAT BUILD, NICE KNIFE !
While not my favorite of the seven Emerson's I own,(my Horseman is still my favorite) it is in the top three that I would EDC. Love the blade shape on this one and it came shaving sharp out of the box. No blade play in any direction, nice lockup with no lock drift or stick. Opens and closes smoothly. The only thing I would change on this one is maybe a little more handle length, but that's my personal opinion. Still sits well in the hand, but only gives me one position in the forward grip to hold it. Feels great in the reverse grip. Like I said before my Horseman would be my favorite, followed by my A100, then this one. Grip is great as with all the Emerson's because of the texturing on the G10 handles, although it will be a bit hard on the pockets, but you'll never lose your grip. My feelings about the handles are my opinions, yours may be different, but still out of seven Emerson's, it comes in third. Pretty good . Thanks to Emerson for the great build on this one and to Knife Center for their as usual great service. Get one and I think you'll be glad you did. It's still a great knife, just not my favorite Emerson.
