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 protected grip. The Care for back is stainless steel with black-oxide coating. For a protected and solid blade lock up, the CQC-4K has a frame lock. The CQC-4K is a manual opener the use of either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson “wave shaped feature.” This opening feature enables the knife to be opened as it’s got rid of from the pocket. By the point the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and in a position to be used. A small wave-shaped tab at the top of the blade is built to catch at 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. The pocketclip is reversible for left- or right-handed carry.
