High Quality Tactical For Stringent Law!
I have to say that Emerson produces extremely high quality. Absolutely nothing about this knife says cheap. Really, my only complaint about this knife is that the blade really is too short. This knife was designed to circumvent our ridiculous knife laws, but really falls short. With a handle like this in your pocket, you might as well have the full blade too. Granted, I don't feel a need to carry a knife solely as a defensive tool (be careful, those who do might as well carry a gun where I live!). I only use my knives in a utility capacity and this knife completely fails in that purpose. I'm sure it is an excellent weapon, but it's EDC capabilities, for me, are non existent. If you feel a need for a self defense knife and are restricted by your local laws on blade length, then this baby might just be for you. Otherwise, order the longer blade!
