The Left-Handed Commander stays true to our classic Emerson Commander model with the added variation for those who are Left-Handed. All design aspects remain the same with the added exceptions of the clip slide and the lock-bar side- both redesigned with the Lefty in mind.
We also produce a Left-Handed CQC-7BW – one of our most sought-after models. You can check them out here.
The Commander knife-battle tested and proven-incorporates some of the most advanced ergonomics ever featured on a folding knife. The knife, already in use with elite armed forces, European Military strike teams and NATO Counter-Terrorist units throughout the world was chosen by the U.S. Navy SEAL teams for issue to special units within the Naval Special Forces Units. Because of its ruggedness, it has become a favorite of hunters, outdoorsmen, and adventurers the world over. It features our patented Emerson “Wave” Feature for lightning-fast pocket opening.
After lots of demand to make knives for those who are left-handed, we decided to offer a couple of our top models in Lefty variations. The Lefty Commander is has every bit of the characteristics that make our classic Emerson Commander a fan favorite. We just flipped it so that it can be carried Left-Hand and unlocked Left-Handed. The Left-Handed Commander is released in a large amount about once a year or so. Currently, they are only available with black blades.
HOW TO USE THE WAVE FEATURE
An important part of knowing the anatomy of an Emerson Knife is knowing how to utilize it. Using the patented Emerson Wave Feature correctly, you can deploy the knife out of pocket rapidly. It takes some practice to master. See how it's done in the video above.
BLADE STYLE: RECURVE
The recurve blade is most commonly associated with the Emerson Commander. Starting from the rear of the cutting edge, it arcs upwards, then downwards. Lastly, it swoops elegantly upwards to the tip.
Fun Fact: The Emerson Commander was the recipient of the Knife of the Year award at the annual Blade Show in Atlanta!
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.
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.
