Great Knife - Blade HQ Exceptional

I have talked with people at Blade HQ and they are an exceptional group of people. I highly recommend this company. Youtube videos are very good - informative and entertaining.

The knife was very well made, but met with an unfortunate set of circumstances. Seeing the quality of the knife, I have placed an order for another one.

This would be my top recommendation for someone on a budget under $40. can't find much better out there and you can't not like the Emerson wave! comes with a great edge didn't even feel it cut me. A great budget frame lock thats impossible to regret purchasing.
Good, not great

Really great ergos, with a solid wave and even more solid build. The action does leave something to be desired and the centering went out the window when I opened her up and cleaned her.
Good for the money

It's a solid collaboration that has me wishing for an American version with some slightly better steel. That being said, $25 at the time of purchase is pretty inexpensive. The mechanism takes some practice but can work. I find myself having to exaggerate my movement when pulling out of the pocket to properly deploy. Lock up seems solid and the knife was frighteningly sharp on arrival.
I wish I liked it more

There's no arguing this is a good knife, but I will leave my gripes here and maybe it'll be useful to some. It's too heavy for my liking. It's not a particularly heavy knife and just like most knives, you'll grow accustomed to it being in your pocket and forget its there, but if I'm wearing athletic shorts I can't tie in the front I'm battling to keep my pants up with this knife in my pocket. In other shorts or pants, the wave feature is cool and with practice, you can draw the knife pretty efficiently but its been too much of a struggle to adjust my grip after drawing it for it to be a realistic last-ditch effort self-defense tool. The wave has also torn up the corner of my pockets but that's expected to happen with a number of pocket knives. And maybe it's just my pants but getting the knife to open with the wave feature consistently was a struggle and depending on the angle of my pockets, there were times when I couldn't get the blade to open into the locked position but would only open partially which created a hazard for cutting my fingers when adjusting my grip. Additionally, I always keep my knives in the pocket as far to the outside of the pocket as possible but if you want to pull the knife out of the pocket without using the wave feature you cannot do this with the knife in that position. I know all I did was complain here but like I said, it really is a good and reliable knife. It just doesn't fit my needs or wants at this point.
Excellent edc

This knife continues to please, everyday I carry this knife and it has never let me down.I do liggt maintenance on it and it has never failed.The ease of operation has not changed since the day I bought it.Also with a lite stropping or touch up with a ceramic rod it is still just as hair popping sharp as the day I bought it.So needless to say my absolute favorite pocket knife I own.
Great knife

This knife was the first one that I didn't buy at a Wallymart. It really turned me on to how cool knives could be before this I thought $20 was a lit to spend on a "tool" but I realized I carry a knife everywhere everyday since this I've purchased a ZT which is the evolution of this knife.
Awesome Collaboration

This knife is great collab between a more budget friendly knife brand (kershaw) and i high-end tactical knife brand. The emerson wave has been featured on a lot of knives such as on the delica and other kershaw models and it works great. This knife is really awesome for edc, self-defense or even hard use jobs. However i took mine apart and accidentally messed with the lock bar and the detent and lock up is really soft. But that does not affect its performance that much. Really great budget and self-defence knife. highly recommended if you want to try out emerson as a brand.
Good for the Price

This is an okay budget knife. The emerson opener works good. The disc isn't my favorite opening mechanism. Opening with the disc isn't very smooth. A bit big in the pocket.

This knife is well made and can take a beating. The wave opening works very well in most any pocket, and the ergos are good for my hands. If you're wanting to try an Emerson without breaking the bank, this is a great choice.

I love this knife. An Emerson design on a budget. I love everything on this knife except the teflon washers. Bronze washers would've made this knife way smoother and a better value.

I went into the store to buy another knife, one that has multiple 5 star ratings. I looked at this knife as a gift for a co-worker. As soon as I felt it in my hand and the smoothness of the action I decided I really needed one for myself as well!!! At this on sale price I couldn't pass it up. I had them put away the more expensive knife, and bought this one. Have already used it a few times and can't believe the edge that it has as well! If you're looking for a smooth action, tight lock, great fit in the hand and pocket for EDC, this is your knife!
Fantastic value

This is by far my favorite of the kershaw/Emerson collabs. Smooth action right out of the box, great ergonomics, and excellent fit and finish.

The swedge on this knife is what puts it ahead of the others for me. Many of the others in this line have thin, needle like tips, and I was always afraid that I'd snap one off. Not the case with the CQC-6K. It's solid.

I also own this knife's big brother, the ZT0560. While the ZT is clearly the superior knife, this one holds its own just fine, and is one hell of a value. Bravo, Kershaw.
A must buy!

Highly recommended! So good I bought two!!! Could be a little hit or miss if you get a defective one. I had a couple bad ones sent, but the guys at Blade HQ helped me out real quick! It's more kershaws issue. Emerson works great!
