New old stock. I found a few Emerson's I had in stock from 2013, knife is NIB with a 2013 blade date.
The Emerson CQC-8 has long been considered one of the best combat designs that we have ever produced. The ergonomics and blade design have merged in the knife to form a perfect union. It is perfectly balanced in both forward and reverse grip. The CQC-8 is the battle-hardened veteran that you’re going to want at your side.
Paired with the patented Emerson “Wave Feature” for an added lightning quick opening out of pocket.
The Emerson CQC-8 has been a favorite among certain circles in Britain’s famed SAS Regiment for years and has been in action since the Bosnian Conflict. It is a true battle-hardened veteran that has seen action in every theater since the 1980’s. – 30 years and still going strong!
