Let me start by commending the knife center for their excellent customer service. I made a mistake when ordering and they were able to quickly help rectify it without impacting delivery time. I received it 5 days after ordering, and I am on deployment in Iraq. This is by far the fastest delivery I have ever had. I bought the CQC 8 to use as part of my kit, as well as an every day carry. So far this knife has conquered every task I have thrown at it. I did my homework on Emerson knives before i ordered It. For soldiers, a knife is a necessary piece of equipment. It may be used for anything from opening mail or MRE's, to prying open ammo cans, dislodging objects, cutting clothing or seat belts, performing minor field surgical operations, or serving as a last ditch weapon. As you can imagine we rely alot on our knives. After extensive research I chose the CQC8 and am completely satisfied with my decision. I can without hesitation recommend this knife to fellow soldiers, or anyone in need of a hard use knife. It will serve you well.
