Kershaw Emerson CQC-6K
Thumbstuds, thumb holes, and even assisted-open flippers can be too slow.
A great everyday carry knife doesn't just carry well in the pocket and feel good in your hand. It should be ready the second you need it, with a quick and safe deployment of its blade. And few things are quite as fast as the Emerson “wave” design.
It's the feature built front and center into the Kershaw and Emerson series of collaboration knives, combining Kershaw's manufacturing prowess with Emerson's unique and functional designs. The patented wave-shaped feature enables the CQC-6K to deploy as soon as you pull it from your pocket, with the tab on the knife catching on your pocket seam to open the blade in one motion.
Of course there's a still a great knife behind the system. The CQC-6K comes with a 3.25”, modified clip-point blade made from stonewashed 8Cr14MoV which makes it versatile for both cutting and piercing. It secures into place during use with a frame lock, and folds back into a combination G-10/410 handle. You can also carry the CQC-6K comfortably thanks to its reversible pocket clip.
