Well, I took the Commander to the overseas region along with a diamond rod and must report it replaced my other tried and true folders. It did so well, I am thinking of dropping one sheath knife as well. No problems at all. The gang from SEAL Team VI were not around so it was all USAF Special Operations team members. My old first issue ***** **** sold to me by Col. **** at ******, is retired in favor of the Commander. I want to add the neck knife and sheath to my kit. With heavy use in the desert the Commander even kept the black finish. It cut up goats, web gear, thick rubber mats, scraped leather, and sliced like hell. As usual-not one hanging rope was encountered to test it on.
Thank you very much for your attention regarding the recent knife that you sent me. Your efforts in this regard demonstrate the highest levels of professionalism and perfection. You should be very proud of your organization’s efforts in this regard.
The Commander and Raven Knives arrived yesterday in perfect shape! To just quickly say “Thank you, I like these knives” would be a grass understatement. In every respect these tools are outstanding! You are a “sharp” Giant in my knife world, Mr. Emerson. I know you are busy in diversity. How many other American Knife Creators could pull together both custom and production work and end up with quality on both fronts can at present be counted on 1 hand, 1 finger.
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that I appreciate the fine products you offer. I am a Police Officer for ************ Police Dept. in Pennsylvania. Our jurisdiction covers low income housing to multi-million dollar homes, four (4) state highways, vast rural areas and large business districts.
This is spread out over approx. 49 square miles. I carry two (2) Emerson CQC-7′s on duty. They have been used for everything from “popping” doors (for legal/safety purposes only!), cutting seat belts, cutting screens, digging, and anything else I need for them for. I also have purchased some of your shirts and a gear bag and have most definitely got my moneys worth. I will be purchasing some more items in the near future as well. Just wanted to thank you and your staff for doing a fantastic job.
I received my new CQC-7 folder. It is my first Emerson. I am very impressed with the quality and workmanship built into the tool. I am very proud to own one of these knives and I believe in its integrity. Please share this compliment with your employees.
I would just like to say thank you for building such a quality product. Last year I bought a CQC-7 and it has served me well. Not long ago I was with my roommate at her horses, and her stud horse flipped himself over in the wash rack. If not for good sharp steel that cut through the nylon halter like it was nothing, we would be out a $20,000 horse. Will definitely recommend only Emerson knives to my friends, they outshine any other knife I have ever owned. I have trained in the martial arts and find this to be perfect for that also. Again I thank you.
Salutations from Virginia!!! I want to send a friendly note to say that I am a new owner of the Emerson CQC-7 Knife!!! I wanted to purchase this for awhile now and I’m hooked, so I said good-bye to my 3 ******** ******* and rescue knives. I’ve been studying your company from some time now and your actions exceeds your reputation!!! You will continue to have me as a loyal customer . . .
W.F.C. First, thank you for replacing me 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 CQC-7 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 wires 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 the vacant building as a warehouse. In the future I will definitely recommend your knives to fellow law enforcement officers.
Yes sir . . . I am the guy who rather stupidly became entangled in about 40-50 feet of cable during a surveilliance operation in South America. . .never thought it could happen to me.
Out of air before could get loose, I grabbed a handful of cable and found the line going to the bottom anchor, doubled it over, stuck my cqc7 (could not reach my dive knife!) in the loop and sawed like hell. When that thing cut through so fast I couldn’t believe it. You guys make some damn good knives.
Sir, Major ****** USMC recently sent me one of your folding knives. Mark said these were a present from you to marines that he knows. Sir, thank you very much for your patriotism and your excellent knife. I have already put it to good use here in Kuwait. I find it very well constructed with good balance and feel.
You are to be commended on your design and craftsmanship. Sir, as America faces its current challenge, please know that your marine Corps stands ready to defend what we Americans cherish.
About 2 years ago I wrote to you about an encounter I had with one of your great products during combat ops in Kosovo. In response you showed incredible generosity and sent a Commander to me free.
I have been putting your knife to hard use ever since. As a platoon sergeant in the infantry I have used your knife for everything from opening letters from home to prying open ammunition crates. I am currently deployed in the fight on terror in the mountains of NE Afghanistan and have a rare chance to check email, just wanted to say thanks and send you this pic of me and your great knife out on patrol in the Konar province of A’Stan
