Kershaw Knives and Emerson Knives have joined forces on a series of
knives that combine the precision engineering of Kershaw with Emerson's
uncompromising functional design.
The CQC-8K features a single-bevel tanto blade—which means it is razor
sharp. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it
non-reflective, too. G-10 handles provide secure grip and a locking
liner means safe and solid blade lock up.
The CQC-8K is a manual opener using either the thumb disk or the
patented Emerson "wave shaped feature." This opening feature enables the
knife to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. By the
time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is
deployed and ready for use. A small wave-shaped tab on the top of the
blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it
comes out of the pocket. This instant-open feature is a favorite among
military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users.
The pocket clip is reversible for left- or right-handed carry.
