Great, small, tactical folder
I was looking for a good, reliable, small folder that could be used for larger jobs, if needed. And I have owned a wide variety of folders over the years (Spyderco, Benchmade, Al Mar, and the full size version of the CQC7 by Emerson), but the majority of these were too large for carry in a pants pocket, or for more "sensitive" working environments. I have to say that I am very pleased with the mini CQC7. The fit and finish are great. When closed it fits in the palm of my hand and is easily carried either inside, or clipped to, my pocket. All in all, it is a very robust knife; exactly how the full-size version is built, only proportionally smaller. It is well-balanced and "feels right" when being held. If you need a small folder that has the strength and capabilities of full-size, this is the knife for you.
