Kershaw Knives and Emerson Knives have joined forces on a series of knives that combine the precision engineering of Kershaw with Emerson's uncompromising functional design. The CQC-5K features a modified clip-point blade for versatile cutting capability. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. G-10 handles in olive drab provide secure grip and a locking liner means safe and solid blade lock up. The CQC-5K is a manual opener using either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson "wave shaped feature." The pocketclip is reversible for left- or right-handed carry. Steel: 8Cr13MoV, black-oxide finish. Blade length: 3 in. Weight: 3.7 oz.
