I concur with both of the previous reviews. My only problem with the tool is that it can snag when it gets pulled out of your pocket and the blade releases. Otherwise a very solid unit.

Fantastic tool. This lives up to Mr. Emersons ethos of quality, durability and function. Fit and finish is clean and tight as to be expected. For me, these are the tools that I need most often and I trust that they will always work when needed. Well done.

This is a very well-executed tool. It’s like a combat “Swiss Army” knife without all the cheesy European bells & whistles. I shouldn’t be surprised at the quality, but I am. Fit & finish is pretty incredible for a foreign made tool. Mr. E wouldn’t collaborate with MT Tools unless he trusted their quality. The 440c blade came with a perfect edge grind, like a razor. The overall manufacture & fit of each tool component is great. Everything is perfectly aligned & opens, locks & closes like it should. This truly is a tactical folder “plus” a few really good extras. I’ve been on an Emerson kick, getting back to basics. I’m tired of industry gimmicks like assisted opening. I grew up with the Emerson cqc7 being the perfect EDC blade, long before me or anybody knew what “every day carry” meant. Emerson blades have always functioned flawlessly & I had to get this EDC2 tool more out of curiosity than anything else. I’m pleased enough that I’ll be ordering a 2nd tool as a backup or a gift.
I’m happy with my knife & the shirts I ordered as well. Tall & big guys take note, Emerson apparel is well made AND fits perfectly for we who are 6’4″+ & in the 300lb range. It’s worth thew few extra bucks to find T’s that are true 3x or 4x sizes that are plenty long for tall people. Emerson customer service & shipping was super fast & clean.
I’m glad I went back to the Emerson brand after spending lots of money on expensive knives by other American brands that have fallen from grace in the past decade.
Emerson knives are reliable, period. I don’t care that my baby cqc7 has a rough-looking thumb ramp. I don’t care that Emerson still uses “old school” liner lock technology & not the latest spring loaded ambidextrous lock pin. I do care that I can invest $200 on an Emerson, (or Emerson-designed collaboration) & inherently trust its function & overall construction.
The EDC tool really fits into the Emerson line nicely. It fits into my pocket nicely as well.
