Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
On the CQC-8 Earnest Emerson really achieved a balance between size and function of a folding knife. The handle gives enough room for the hand, yet is "short" enough to enable a quick change in grips (from hammer to sabre or vice versa). The knfe is perfectly balanced when opened and easy to hold on to with the finger guard at the front end of the handle. The handle itself feels comfortable and natural in hand. Great G10. The blade has great piercing and cutting potential and is razor sharp. The knife is manageable as EDC without being too small. All in all: Just right. Thanks, Emerson.
