The owners of EKI and Steel Flame agreed to make this clip for me. I'm surprised it was never requested before. I really like it. It is as if the shield is being held in front of his chest.

Aw, dammit. I'm new to the club, recently got a Mini CQC7.

Posting that could potentially hurt my wallet. That is so sweet!

Mini7 is a great knife, congrats!

It is extremely cool. It is also a very specific tool. Because of the copper beryllium blade it is used in explosives ordinance demolition, hence "EOD". The edge will lose sharpness much faster than a steel knife. It is extremely important if you get one to not sharpen it yourself as you would another knife unless you have robust ventilation and dust management gear. This material is very damaging to lungs.

Regardless, it is s sweet, bad implement!

In all honesty, that would be an investment buy and it would be a toss up between that, or three less expensive Emersons. I'm eyeballing the commander variants at the moment. I work with steel, so that definitely caught my eye!

I'm a long-time user of Emerson knives and have quite a few. Last summer I added three tan Roadhouses for my flight bag and flight suit, and one for carry in my pocket. I have quite a few Emersons, and have carried them all over the world. They get used and abused.

I broke down recently and bought an Emerson-licensed waved Zero Tolerance (0620). While it feels robust enough and came sharp, it doesn't open like my Emersons. The arc of the blade and thumb disc, the force needed to open, angle of force from thumb to opening, and the feel of the knife isn't what I'd have expected from an Emerson. It didn't want to open properly from a pocket draw.

I understand the knife is new, but while I'm certainly not returning it and I'll probably use it quite a bit, I expected more. The geometry doesn't feel right to me. Fit and finish is okay, and the blade's centered, very little play, The finished edge is a little uneven, and I'd rather have a G10 or micarta scale on each side of the knife rather than just one. It's a little heavier.

I still prefer the commanders.

I hope the pocket clip holds up better than the Emerson ones...those fail in very short order. The end of the Zero-T clip is bend downward, and may be less inclined to snag and pull (and lose tension). Time shall tell.

There is a particular comfort in knowing which knives fit one's hand. Glad that you know yours.

I haven't had Emerson clip problems, other than an occasional screw backing out. I'd contact EKI and explain what has been happening. Otherwise, might consider a steel flame clip as another option.

This is my Sarah Palin knife. In 2008, I was a Secret Service Agent assigned to secure a hotel for Sarah Palin.

The hotel manager had left a wrapped gift in her suite, and I used this knife to open the package before she arrived. However, due to unforeseen circumstances (Bristol), I had to attend to another issue in the hotel, and forgot my knife in the suite.

The next morning, Governor Palin stepped into the hallway holding my knife, and returned it. No issues. No drama. She just returned my knife.

Thus, it is my Sarah Palin knife.

Awesome story, thanks for sharing.
