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-4K features a drop-point blade for multi-purpose cutting capability. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. A textured G-10 front scale in coyote brown offers a secure grip. The handle back is stainless steel with black-oxide coating. For a safe and solid blade lock up, the CQC-4K has a frame lock.

The CQC-4K 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 By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use.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.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Pros: Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Pocket Clip
Nice knife, but not if you are left handed.
Decent knife, reasonable edge holding ability. My problem is that I am left handed and the knife is not really reversible. Kershaw does not provide screws that are long enough for the side with a scale. Kershaw is aware or this problem and has not addressed it. Not recommended for leftys. Also the handle end is sharp enough to be uncomfortable in the hand. Two minutes with a belt sander fixed it, but such modifications should not be necessary.

love it!
I have been a Kershaw fan for many years and this is another great knife from them. Very sharp right out of the box, has a nice profile and design both open and closed. This knife feels good in your hands and will serve you well for many years.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Of the three Emerson designed Kershaws that I bought pre-release, the CQC-4K has the best balance between size, weight, and profile. The stainless back side and G10 presentation side scales provide good balance and grip. 8Cr14MoV is a good steel, similar to AUS-8: from stone to strop to work in hand, I feel the two steels are equal. I'm not sure the wave-shaped feature is really my thing, but that's Emerson's trademark. It provides a nice thumb rest, even though the pocket-snag opening concept is a little shady from a safety standpoint. The disc is no substitute for a thumb stud, but that's also a matter of opinion. A drop of oil and a fine-tune with a Torx bit makes the pivot solid and smooth. All in all, this is a great carry knife, well-made, and way easy on the wallet.
