“I am announcing the retirement of the Viper series of Emerson custom knives also called the MV Line. Those knives are the: MV1, MV2, MV3, MV4, and MV5 models. They were my first hard use, hand finish versions of Tactical’s I built over 25 years ago. I have so many more new designs that in order to make room for them I had to “Thin the herd.” They were all great knife designs and I built the foundations of my Tactical career upon them. I am sorry to see them go but I am not going to be building anymore of them”.
