The Emerson Sheepdog knife features black G-10 handles, and two types of blades: Spear Point and Bowie. It features a ball-bearing pivot system to allow for a smooth and rapid deployment. This ball-bearing feature is only seen on our Flipper Knives. The Sheepdog has quickly become one of the most highly rated and searched for Emerson Knives.

“The Sheepdog Knife is a medium size folder with some important features that are entirely new to Emerson Knives. Knowing that this knife is specifically designed for both police and military use, these two blade styles make the most sense for a utility/defensive knife. We are extremely pleased with the results and I know you will be too. “

The Birth of the Sheepdog

This Sheepdog is the first Emerson flipper which also features the new bearing system. Lt. Colonel David Grossman is an icon in the Military and Tactical world. A former Airborne Ranger and West Point Instructor, he is the world’s leading authority on the effects of stress and combat and how they affect an individual when faced with life and death decisions in that environment. He is the author of two groundbreaking books, “On Killing” and “On Combat” which are now regarded as required reading for anyone who must go into harm’s way.

Needless to say, I was both humbled and honored when Colonel Grossman approached me in regard to making an official knife for him and his company, “Sheepdog Knife and Gun.”

“It’s important that the user must be able to open the knife under high stress so I’d need it to have a flipper. With your wave, thumb button, and flipper it’ll be the most deployable knife ever built, even in a gross motor skills environment. The rest of the design I’ll leave up to you,” he told me.

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: 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'.

BLADE STYLE: BOWIE

Bowie blades are very popular among Emerson Knives fans. These awesome knives have an upswept blade edge that meets a downward curved tip. This gives it a similar appearance to a rhino's horn. Perfect for hunters and fisherman because their fine points are perfect for getting into small crevices.

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.
