Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Overall Quality, None
Decent knife, given above average hype
I picked up one of these on a whim, and as I was curious about the wave feature, like supporting USA made products, and honestly, bought into the hype surrounding Emerson. It is a neat knife, and the wave concept is novel, but the knife itself is poorly constructed for the price. There seems to be no pride in craftsmanship, such as is found on less expensive USA made offereings from Spyderco, Benchmade, and Kershaw that I have obtained recently. The liners are jimped for traction, but the scale to liner fit was so bad, that these areas were rendered useless. The blade was horrible centered, and the ammt of blade play at an acceptable level of tension was disappointing. There are other issues with the knife's construction, but I digress. Neat knife concept, not thought out very well, and executed poorly.
