Kershaw Emerson CQC 7K

18+
£63.95

The CQC-7K features a modified tanto blade. The blade has two finishes: a satin finish on the grind and a stonewashed finish on the upper. The handle's front scale of textured G-10 offers a secure grip and the handle's stainless steel back has a solid frame lock.


The CQC-7K is a manual opener using either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson "wave shaped feature." This opening feature enables the knife to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use. A small wave-shaped tab on the top of the blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it comes out of the pocket. This instant-open feature is a favorite among military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users.


The pocketclip is reversible for left- or right-handed carry.


It is available with a black or satin blade colour.

    Very nice indeed

    Posted by Sharp Terry on 24th Mar 2018

    I've always fancied an Emerson CQC7B, but these are heading steadily towards the £200 mark now. If I did get one I probably wouldn't use it at that price point.

    I decided to take a punt on one of these and I'm glad I did!

    I don't normally chose tanto blades, as my primary use is not what a tanto is designed for. However they do look very cool and there are times when the point comes in very handy.


    What I particularly like is the tanto blade has a bevel and grind on both sides of the blade. It is not a chisel grind like the more expensive Emerson's. I personally do not like sharpening chisel grind blades.

    The modified tanto profile is very nice and makes it seem a more useful shape for utilitarian tasks than the more stark Japanese tanto shape. The combination of stone wash and satin finishes on the blade looks very nice. Even grinds. Perfectly centred. The opening action is smooth and the lock up solid. No blade play in any direction.

    The handle fits my hand like a glove and is very comfortable. The G10 is grippy without shredding your hand. It has a nice size lanyard hole so you could easily fit a paracord lanyard.

    The wave opener works well and the wave hook provides a handy thumb ramp which is very comfortable.

    So are there any negatives?

    The lock bar engages with a softer clunk rather than the aggressive click which I personally prefer from other lockers I have owned from Spyderco, Benchmade, etc.

    The wave opener is a mixed blessing, it sometimes catches and starts opening the knife when I would rather draw it normally.

    Overall I highly recommend this knife. I wish I had got one when they first appeared on the site and were a bit cheaper but for a sub £50 knife you are still getting a level of fit and finish you would normally expect on a much more expensive knife.

    Emerson are not known for their fit and finish so arguably letting Kershaw apply their quality control to an Emerson design is a winning combination.

    Sleek and solid tactical folder

    A good, solid knife. Lock up is great with no movement whatsoever, blade is nice and sharp out of the box. The knife isn't huge but it has some weight to it, making it feel good and substantial in the hand. This would make a great defensive option for EDC if your local laws allow.

    A word of warning however, the black version still has a silver pocket clip and frame/liner. Thus, I'd say avoid it and go for the silver option - it'll look far nicer.

    Damn cool knife

    Posted by nVr on 21st Jan 2015

    There is plenty of exposure for the 6K which has received nothing but great reviews you can look up, but almost nothing on this one. It's exactly the same as the 6K but with a Tanto blade so look that up for more in-depth details about this knife.

    As far as I can tell Heinnie is the ONLY place to get the black blade version including in the US or even on Kershaw's website.

    The wave feature works even better than flicking it open, people who can't do it are doing it wrong!

    There are only two problems I have;
    - The main problem is the smoothness of deployment, it's a VERY stiff opening out of the box. I am now happy with it having loosened it a little, but to guarantee a very smooth deployment each time I have to loosen it so far the blade become misaligned.

    - Also it is not as sharp as it should be out of the box, mine doesn't even cut paper, but nothing a sharpening won't fix.

    Most people do not have these two problems though some have reported having them also with the 6K, guess I got unlucky. All in all a sturdy great looking knife which performs well after some tweaking.
