I saw that Midway still has those for $115, an awesome deal. And Ernie describes it as the "Father of all Tactical Folders"...I can see where it would be a good 'office' knife...kinda discreet...

I could not pass one up for the price

It's very nice. Have not had time to detail clean it yet

I just got my first 14 last week, and I'll have to say it is much more impressive in person than in pictures...What will you use it for? I didn't think it would be a good EDC, but I was wrong...

It will get carried.

The receiving department at work is a one man show. We get between 20 and 200 boxes per day. Part of my daily routine is going around to the different departments in the shop and checking on how things are going. From time to time I'll spend 15 minutes and help break down the pile of boxes. Right now that's closer to daily, as we're quite busy. Yes, I could go find a box cutter, but I'd rather get some use out of my knives.

I was carrying my Benchmade mini-grip, added in an ESEE Candiru on a neck sheath, now the CQC-7 (which cuts great, even when dull), and probably the 14.

4 knives might get me through 2 weeks at work without having to sit down and spend 20 minutes getting the edge sharp enough to cut paper instead of tear it.

Got my third Emerson Saturday. The CQC-14. So I now have a 14, 15 and SOCFK.

I think the 15 is my favorite! The SOCFK is next. I'm really trying to get the 14 to feel right. It really needs to be sharper.

Grayman disc? Huge. Wow.

It looks a little ungainly, but as promised it really helps with lefty deployment.

Are Framelocks that much better than Liner Locks? Why do they cost so much more?

They get the nod because of strength/durability, but of course that's balanced against higher production costs.

That's what I think

Bar stock. Milled, planed then heat treated

Opposed to a 2mm piece

I read a Thread over on Blade Forums about this topic. The basic take was that theoretically the Frame Lock should be stronger and more reliable. Stronger because there is more contact surface with the blade, and your hand acts to hold the lock in place. More reliable because it's easier to remove and dirt or sand that could build up.

A Liner lock used a thinner 'lock' section and is inside the scales, therefore easier for foreign objects to get wedged in.

Some stated that, in their opinion, in a quality knife these days there is little difference if a knife is used properly.

Here's the Thread. About 3/4 of the way down is an interesting read by user Marthinus...and an unbelievable picture of an HD-7 with a buckled Frame.

http://www.bladeforums.com/for...r-lock-vs-frame-lock

I cannot imagine how much abuse this took...They must have been using a sledge.

As much as I love Commanders, I ordered the Super Commander SF Plain from Midway for $181. That's $70 to $120 under retail. Couldn't turn down that price, there are still 7 left. That gives me one of each Commander except the micro.

That's it for me...had that one in the basket for a week. When it dropped from $198 I jumped.

This thread should be titled "You will buy an Emerson". Looked at it one too many times. Ordered a CQC-8 blk/serrated from the clearance sale. Gonna replace my Endura 4, another very good knife.
