BEST FEEL OF MY FOUR EMERSONS
Out of the four Emersons I own, this has the best feel in the hand of any of them. That may change soon though, if what Mr. Emerson says about the ETAK is true, since I have recently ordered one. That said, this knife feels great in the hand. The shape of the handles combined with the texture of the G10 makes for a grip that you know you can't lose. Fit and finish are excellent. Extremely sharp and no blade play at all. No lock stick. Out of the four Emerson's I own, this is probably the most practical one. I love the shape of the blade and the size and ergonomics are about perfect for EDC. This is the second Emerson I ordered with the black blade finish, and I love it. Will probably get the black on any that I order from now on. Just seems to fit the knife better, in my opinion. I've read some reviews where people complained of quality issues, but that must have been with some of the older knives, because with my four, I've had nothing but excellent build quality. Lockup is at about twenty percent. This is my favorite Emerson, so far. Like I read in another review though, buying these just makes you want more. They are built to be used, and used hard, try one and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Thanks to Emerson for another great knife, and thanks to Knife Center for being the best place to buy great knives out there. There is no place I have found that does a better job than Knife Center.
