The Perfect Mini Folding Knife!

The highly-sought after Emerson Mini A-100 is bursting back onto the scene for a very limited time while supplies last! Featuring the same iconic design as the standard A-100 tactical knife, the mini version is smaller and much more discreet. It's a slim, symmetrical and efficient everyday carry that you'll never want to leave your side.

The Emerson A-100 design became the archetype from which all of our other designs have evolved .  It is essentially the “Father” of all our tactical designs.  In fact, it might be the “Grandfather” of all tactical knife designs that now exist!  It’s simple, it works, and it never gives up.  See for yourself.

Symmetry. Grace. Power.

The Emerson A-100 is described perfectly with those three words. Featuring a simple and aesthetically pleasing straight blade, with an equally simple straight handle. The Emerson A-100 is essential to the Emerson legacy. It dates before our patented Wave Feature. Not wowed by the flashy and novelty knives of today? Well, it doesn't get any simpler than this. Tradition and elegance are all it takes. See for yourself.

Before bursting into the tactical scene, Ernest Emerson was already making the A-100 design. This knife became the archetype from which all of his other designs have evolved.  It truly is the “Father” of all of our tactical designs.

In fact, it might be the “Grandfather” of all tactical knife designs that now exist.  It’s simple, it works, and it never gives up.

Although we moved to a more tactical area of knife making, the Emerson A-100 remains one of our most beloved designs. It's small and simple making for a great, straight forward every day Carry. 

KNIFE ANATOMY

Anatomy of an Emerson Knife

BLADE STYLE: SPEARPOINT

Anatomy of an Emerson Knife

Spear point blades are commonly referred to as ‘drop point‘. The edge curves up to the tip of the blade. We refer to Emerson Knives with spear point blades as having ‘A-Blades'.

Standoff Spacers have been standard on all Emerson Knife models since 2014. Any knife ordered from our site from that year will receive one of these models.

Anatomy of an Emerson Knife Lanyard

Lanyard Holes serve one purpose: attaching a paracord lanyard if you choose to get one. We get asked that question quite a lot!

The Thumb Button is there so that you may open the knife single handedly . Specifically with your thumb. Some people are naturals at it and some have to learn. Either way, it's very useful.

    Yep, she’s probably going to be a pocket ripper and I really don’t care! For the last 2 years I’ve wanted to pick one of these up. It was worth the wait. Had been looking for a USA made heavy duty EDC to add to my collection. This thing is a tool that you can beat on, not loose your grip on, and then clean up to pass down to others. It came super sharp out of the box and well finished. Thanks for making quality American products!

    The mini a100 is an awesome edc knife. Perfectly sized for any occasion and plenty tough to handle the most rigorous task, it works well either in the office or on the construction site. Get one and you won’t be disappointed.

    I own well over 50 knives and have literally owned thousands in my life. When I think of a perfect EDC it is the A-100 mini. Excellent fit and finish, simplicity exemplified, and 100% Emerson quality. I would love to own a custom one day, but that said I am pleased with my production model and it continues to make the rotation of EDC gear each week.

    The best pocket knife I’ve had the pleasure to carry. I’ve beat this knife all to hell and it has absolutely no play between the blade and handle. The lock up is still strong and the blade holds a good working edge even after abuse. My only regret about this knife is the THERE ARENT ANY MORE TO BUY!!!! Mr Emerson I feel privileged to own what appears to be a hard knife to get ahold of, but I do not understand why this knife isn’t in regular production. Then again the business of making and selling hard use knives is not something I’m well versed in. Thank you for a wonderful product that has served me so well for several years now

    Has been my main edc for quite a few years. Not so scary looking that you couldn't open it at work, but is the most brutally strong 3″ knife I have kept in my pocket. Buy one when you can, because they are not always available. This knife is the best.

    I love all my knives. But working in an office environment, I usually choose something that is less conspicuous, yet still gives me confidence when walking back to my car after a long day's work. I've chosen the mini A100 as my companion for the past year and a half. It's done everything I've asked it to do (as a knife. I have other tools for other jobs), while not scaring the staff. Great knife. Carries well. A blade design that suits a lot of different cutting jobs.

  7. ADAM

    This knife also makes a great IWB knife..very concealable..

    I own the Mini A-100, it's a great little knife to conceal in your boot, it should've been called “The Sneaky Little Bastard”
