I have a #7Emerson I bought a few years ago from Emerson at a knife show in Allanta Ga. It has been my EDC ever since. But then I carry two knives everyday.You forget you have it til you need it.

Ah, SLACKS. CRKT flat out tells you never to carry the M16 flipper knives tip-up with slacks(or any pants with non levi/jean pockets) or you will cut yourself in half and kill everyone in a 6 foot radius and then try to sue them. Actually they recommend against ever using the flippers to open the knife. Even though it works brilliantly. As long as you are wearing jeans...with nothing else in the pockets...

Handles are from 96ish, this blade was replaced in 03'/04'. Not the wave, but without the thumb stud it works the same. Love it, it's like a lucky charm for me.

I just watched that episode yesterday. I really enjoyed it. I'm in the market for a new knife and that actually helped put Emersons on my radar. I'm actually looking at the CQC7. It's tempting, but I also get a KILLER deal on Benchmades. The Adamas folder for $100 seems hard to pass on.

My Mini-Commander came today...I love it. It just feels solid and substantial. I gotta be honest...I've had a chance to compare some good Benchmades, Spyderco's, and Emersons and I cannot get over the Emersons - I'm hooked. I have a CQC7, a Mini-CQC7, and a Mini-Commander and they are awesome.

I'm not a huge fan of Nutnfancy, and I've even met the guy at one of the local gun stores in the area, but I have to say THAT was an awesome interview. I'm now a fan of Emerson Knives and they just got moved up pretty high on the need-to-buy list. Thanks for posting that.

Which size is that? I can't tell the super from the mini...Just the micro Commander has that hole...

One day I might get a CQC-8...Maybe for the birthday...

It's the 3.75" blade so not the Super and not the Micro. Just right..

Someone sells a CQC6 on ebay for $4K and the knives come out of the wood work. Now 2 more are listed for sale. One appears to have been just received from Emerson and listed on Ebay asap. Bet that makes Emerson happy Roll Eyes

This has to be the last one...On the way...CQC-8 BTS..The 3.9" blade...The texture and grip of the G10 handles on these Emersons is just amazing...

I did get my Commander. I have to say, I had read some reviews that complained about the fit and finish of the knife and I was a little hesitant on the purchase.

Well, mine's built like a tank. Looks to be spot on construction to me. Scary sharp out of the box. I'm pretty sure I could slather my hand in Crisco and still keep a functional grip with the G10 - just a wonderful texture (would be great on my Glock 26).

Not the best pics, but I snapped a few off hand (only have an iPhone for a camera so it's as good as it gets).

Sweet! The 3.75" Commander is a fistful. My impression is the same as yours concerning the build and G10 grips. After these Emersons I have no interest in any other pocket knife.

I got my 3.9" CQC-8 BTS, and love it - What a machine, you can just feel the functionality. I wish I had a better camera...But I'll get a few pictures and post 'em soon.
