“I wanted to write to you and compliment you on the quality of your knives and your company. I am a former Law Enforcement officer and an outdoorsman, and have owned and carried at least five other combat/utility folders over the last en years. I purchased my first Emerson knife about six months ago, a CQC-7, and have been totally impressed with it form the moment I took it out of the box. It has served me well in the short time I have carried it and I now carry it almost everywhere I go.
At the time I was shopping for a new combat/utility folder last November. I am fortunate to have fairly regular comms with a number of friends in L.E. and other Operators and asked them what they though about various blades. One of those folds, who knows Denny Chalker personally, suggested that I take a look at your knives and gave me your web address. The rest, as they say, is history but I wanted to let you know that the folks in the Special Operations community have tremendous amount of respect for you and your blades. Since I have learned, over the years, about the high quality of these warriors and their wisdom, it was easy for me to follow their recommendations.
I also want to compliment you on investing so much of yourself in starting up your new production manufacturing facility. After I left Law Enforcement, I studied Manufacturing Engineering and subsequently have been in manufacturing for the last seventeen years. Consequently, I fully understand the monumental undertaking that you stepped up to in starting a production shop. The fact that only 2.5 years later you have been able to get back to you custom knife making is nothing short of amazing. Thanks for all of your dedication to producing some of the finest edged weapons, tools and accessories for the Warriors who serve and protect our lives, loved ones and freedoms. In a society that frequently rewards people for greed, selfishness and scandalous behavior, I’m glad to see that there are people like you who are willing to stand up with Honor, Integrity, and Commitment.”
