I have owned a CQC 15 for several years and I love it. Emerson's are solid well built knives and I have found that they stay sharp better than most knives. This is a big knife and its exactly what I wanted when I ordered it. I have 15 other brands of knives and the Emerson along with a Benchmade Contego are my daily carries. I choose one of them daily. I also have two Benchmade Griptilian is a very good little knife. Keep working with the wave. You will get it going soon.

I only have two serious use knives, both Emerson SOCFK-Bs. The first one was a straight blade, then the second was serrated, which I find much more useful day to day. Bought them both 4-5 years ago when Midway was blowing them out for $150-ish.
Every couple years I send them to Emerson for sharpening and also had the straight blade serrated. This is the workhorse and due for a trip to the mothership soon.
Just got it out of the mailbox. The pivot on this one is much better than my CQC8. This one has a stronger detent but flies into the open position easily. I love it. CQC13 Brand New by Andrew King, on Flickr
