    When your life depends on your knife, you better have this one in your pocket! I bought my CQC-7 in 1997 on the advice of a Team-2 Frog who I worked with at China Lake. At first I was skeptical at spending 5 times more than the price of the good quality work blade (a Gerber) I had at the time, but after a couple days of badgering I ordered one. After it arrived I chuckled at the plain white box I unwrapped and really laughed when I found the 3 band-aid’s packed along with the knife. Ed reassured me that the band-aids were for the amateurs and proceeded to prove the sharpness by slicing a sheet of paper cleanly in half. He then took my box cutter blade and with a new tip, only got through half the next sheet before it just tore. I was sold.
    I’ve carried the CQC-7 religiously ever sense, including 6 aircraft carrier deployments where it stayed in my FOD pouch every day- sun, rain and snow. Other than one chipped blade tip (totally my fault) that I needed to replace, this knife has performed flawlessly. A simple round diamond hone keeps the blade in top form, but I still send it in for a professional sharpening twice a year, when I can.
    the wave-shaped feature is a god send when I need to have the blade open and locked fast!
    This knife is up to any task you would expect for a fixed blade 50% larger. Over the years It has cut through 210,000 pound test nylon line and been soaked for days in salt spray. Whenever anyone asks what knife they should buy for daily use or life critical use I tell them the same thing “Get an Emerson CQC-7, You will never never regret spending the money! Just don’t let your buddy borrow it, you may not get it back!”

    this is the non-wave version of the cqc-7… with or without the wave, this tactical folding knife is the perfect work-horse / EDC knife… I have one with wave and one without… and I also have the cqc-7v with wave…. all bad a** knives…

    I purchased this knife purely on reputation after I handled one in a store. I carry the Spyderco Para-Military 2, which I consider to be a fine knife, but I have to say I am extremely impressed with the Emerson. I love the size of the blade, the handle provides for a solid grip, it has a very smooth action, I love the liner lock feature, and the quality is second to none. I’m looking very forward to using this tool for quite a while.
