    It may be new, but it’s my favorite Emerson already. I immediately ordered another one as a backup as soon as I got it out of the box. I was a little worried about the handle when I bought it but was pleasantly surprised with the fit and feel. Went with the tanto out of personal preference. Simply put, In my opinion, one of the best designed Emerson’s ever.

    On a scale one to ten I give the blade a 10 plus !
    One of the best tactical tanto blade ever
    The handle I give it a seven , I have 10 emerson knives all of them, the handle and blade come together as one they just feel right . I’m getting used to it
    It’s been my EDC since receiving it and I would highly recommend it

    I’ve always avoided Tanto’s because they usually have poor tip control for utility tasks , and I’ve had difficulty keeping the blade shape after a lot of sharpening.

    But I am super happy with this guy! This tanto shape is more like the shape of a traditional katana blade tip. Since the tip is more in line with the center of the blade instead of the back, there is much more utility control.

    This and the CQC-8 are my favorite Emerson models.

    Couldn’t say it any better than the Ones above. I have both the A nd B model. Love the V-grind more like a Japanese sword tip ETAK. Handle fits my hand perfectly. May be replacing my CQC-13 as most carried blade!!

  5. :

    Simply put, this knife gets a 10/10!
    Like all the comments before mine, I too was super pleased with the overall feel of this knife. Clean lock up with no blade play. The ergonomics of the grip are phenomenal and the tanto blade is sleek, sexy, and an incredibly kick-ass design.

    If you’re still contemplating on getting this knife by the time you’re done reading these comments, something’s clearly wrong with you. It’s an Emerson, that’s already enough justification. Add the ETAK to your collection!

    Great feeling in the hand, super sharp cool blade, terrible lock-bar. Sticky as hell…

      Darrin, Thanks for your comment. When the knives are sent out the lock should be on the sticky side and not loose or super easy to disengage. There is a wear in period of 1-2 weeks. Enjoy your knife!
