Best-Selling Emerson Custom Knives
We offer more than a dozen models of affordable Emerson knives for sale at KnifeArt that represent the very best in law enforcement, military and tactical tools. Popular models such as the Commander, CQC-7 and CQC-15 are prized by first responders. The Mini and Super Commander feature the recurve blade while the CQC-7 tactical folder has a tanto-style blade. And the Emerson CQC-15 combines these two styles, giving elite military and law enforcement groups the best of both worlds.
Many other Emerson folding knives have proven themselves in real-world situations, from the Emerson Karambit knife for self-defense to the CQC-8 Horseman for ranchers and farmers. Each one uses Emerson's patented wave open feature for removing the knife from your pocket and opening the blade all in one motion.
