“First, thank you for replacing my damaged knife. It is comforting to see a company stand behind its product. Second, here is my response to your request for details about how I damaged the knife. My partner and I responded to a radio assignment of criminal trespass in progress. Upon our arrival to the scene, we observed the front door secured by what appeared to be rope and wire. After attempting to disentangle the material from the door, we heard movement inside. At which point I utilized my Emerson CQC7 to cut through and gain entry.
The knife made short work of the rope. However, when I cut the wire there was a huge spark that split the wire and melted the blade. We were able to gain entry and make the arrest for criminal trespass. Subsequent to our search we were able to recover a considerable amount of stolen property and drugs as a local street gang was using this vacant building as a warehouse. In the future I will definitely recommend you knives to fellow law enforcement officers.”
