Emerson considers the A100 knife model as the "father" of all Emerson folding knives, maybe even the "grandfather" of all tactical knives. Its simple, straight-forward style hides the strength and power found in this model, and yet it inspires the designs of all other Emerson knives.
The Emerson A-100 model is 8.4 inches long in total, with a 3.6-inch long spear point blade made from 154CM stainless steel and a Rockwell Hardness of 57-59. With a thickness of .125 inches, the blade can come in either a stone wash finish or black Teflon coating to reduce glare, and with the option to add serrations to the edge for more power when cutting and tearing. It's made to cut and pierce through various materials easily, with its strong chisel grind. The blade deploys one-handed with ambidextrous thumb disk mounted on its blade spine.
The Emerson A100 folding knife is made with a black G-10 textured handle, the straight, un-contoured 4.8-inch long handle is easy to grip without the threat of slipping out-of-hand in wet conditions. The liner lock up system is made with aerospace grade titanium, making it imperious to rust while keeping the blade locked up securely. The handle also includes the option to carry the knife tip-up with its carry clip, or carry and secure with the lanyard hole.
In sum, this is a heavy-duty knife in a simple, symmetrical disguise. As a tool for tactical practices, camping, hunting, or even just cutting up your apple for lunch, the knife can withstand heavy use and or your every day carry.
