Kershaw Knives

Kershaw Knives and Emerson Knives have joined forces on a series of knives that combine the precision engineering of Kershaw with Emerson's uncompromising functional design.

The CQC-8K features a single-bevel tanto blade—which means it is razor sharp. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. G-10 handles provide secure grip and a locking liner means safe and solid blade lock up.

The CQC-8K is a manual opener using either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson "wave shaped feature." This opening feature enables the knife to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use. A small wave-shaped tab on the top of the blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it comes out of the pocket. This instant-open feature is a favorite among military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Very solid, well designed, larger Kershaw
Pros: Fills my hand well, good traction and ergo Nice gimping - not too aggressive but just enough G-10 handle scales feel comfortable Very solidly built knife Chisel grind is easy to get razor sharp Tanto blade works well for most cutting tasks Economical hard working knife Cons: This knife will be too big and heavy for many people's taste Heavy and bulky in pocket Black coating on blade might be a turn off In my opinion, this is the ugly duckling of the Kershaw CQC series, so for many the 8k will be too bulky and lacks the "Cool Factor" Basically, if you want the Abram's tank of pocket knives under $50.00 this is the knife for you. This would be a great knife to throw in your camping gear or in your truck as a medium to heavy duty blade. I alternate carrying this knife with my Kershaw CQC-6k which I think is more stylish but not as beefy. I have large hands and the CQC-8k feels more secure in my hand than the 6k.

Black Kershaw Emerson Tanto
Excellent knife, as expected with the names Emerson and Kershaw on it. Very sharp right out of the box and holds an edge well. Easy open and positive blade lock. Would definitely recommend this knife to anyone looking for a good knife.

Kershaw Emerson 6044 TBKK CQC-8K
Sharp out of box. Extra area + Jimping on spine good for thumb rest for added support during slashing or index finger for fine cutting. Opens well and lock up up and down/side to side movement is tight. Weight a bit heavy though. Handle is weird looking. But for the price, in a word... AWESOME! Thanks Ernie.
