Very nice knives. Someone will be very fortunate to have them. I've said it before, but I really have to stop spending. Winter is coming, in more ways than one.

Isn't that the one he designed as part of the Les Bear 1911 Project? My God that is a beauty...and rare...

Member Jiminpotomac actually has an HMMV-K...he's the only one I know because he posted pics of it earlier in the Thread.

The design for this knife started out as the "ECA 1911". A design Ernest modeled after the grips of the 1911. Later he did a collaboration with Les Baer in which a matching serialized gun and knife combo were offered. These knives had double diamond checkered grips to match the guns grips. At this point the ECA-1911 was dubbed the CQC-45 which was the same as the gun. Ernest went on to make regular hand made custom versions of the CQC-45 for his shows and lotteries. These had bead-blasted titanium bolsters, hand ground blades, and green micarta scales (standard custom Emerson configuration). My checkered Walnut CQC-45 is a 1 of 3 that have checkered scales and bead blasted bolsters. I have seen one with checkered walnut scales and satin polished bolsters as well an all black bladed and bolstered walnut CQC-45 that I believe you shared a picture of.

The HMMV-k. Is a TANK of a knife. Only 100 exist since it was a collectors association knife. The glass breaker was a really cool feature for an Emerson. I had one and regrettably sold it.

I always check this thread, interesting pieces.
Here's a bad scan of a HMMV I once owned, I had all the early ECA knives directly from the shop.

I know it's supply and demand and the owner's right to sell his own property for what he wants, but if I were in the market for a bulldog and I knew what was paid and how long they had been held I wouldn't pay $400 or more to one of these guys flipping knives from last week.

I don't mind paying market rate for something that's been collected and saved, etc etc, but to reward the guys that vacuumed up multiple ones and are already selling them Roll Eyes

Thought about it, but I think I prefer the 15. Check the dimensions and you'll find them almost identical.
