Production Description

As some of you know, I live on a ranch with horses.  You may also know that I grew up on a farm.  Anyway, we all know how important a knife is when you’re working around a farm and livestock.  In regard to horses, a strong sharp knife is not an option, it is essential.  Every cowboy knows that his knife is his lifejacket.  When something goes wrong with livestock, it goes wrong fast.  A knife is generally the only thing that will get you out of a wreck with your life.

So, we did our research and found that the knife design most suited to the purpose was a scaled down version of the CQC-8, with serrations. This Mini-CQC-8 still has all of the aggressiveness of the Full Size 8 but is more pocket friendly for someone on Horseback.  I think you’ll like it.

    a scaled down version of the cqc-8, the horseman is a great sized EDC… hightly recommended for those that found the cqc-8 a little too big for practical use…

    Got mine today, one of the sharpest and cleanest edges on a knife I’ve had. Benchmade, ZT, spyderco, etc. This is great, perfectly centered and overall amazing. I’m buying more Emerson as long as it holds up. I also work with horses so I’ll put this knife through some tests :)

    I got this one on a whim from a private seller. I bought it with the thought that “If I don’t dig it, I’ll just unload it”. Well, that was some time last summer, and guess what ? It’s still been in my pocket most days. Even the days I might carry something else for variety’s sake, this one tags along anyhow. It’s that good. During the winter months, it was pretty much my go to knife. I gave it some testing out with a few pairs of gloves (thick ones, thin ones, and ones in between), and I did not have one issue with deploying, unlocking, closing, and pocketing. It’s very deceiving because of it’s size, but it works so well with gloves. Cutting wise, it came through with flying colors, and tackled every chore I’ve asked of it. For a purchase on a whim, it’s one that I’ve never regretted. For some of the folks that poo poo the knives, and the man whose name is on them, I’ll just say that I think the man knows what he’s doing when it comes to knife designing. All the attributes were well thought out for a knife of this size. If you’re on fence on getting one, I’d say just give it a try.
