This model features a modified clip-point blade giving you versatile cutting ability. The blade comes in two finishes: satin on the upper and a stonewashed finished on the grind. 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-6K is a manual opening knife with either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson "wave shaped feature". This kind of 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 By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from your pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use. How cool is that?
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. The instant-open feature makes it a favorite among law enforcement, military and rescue knife users.
This Emerson blade is a slim and sharp little stinger. Joining forces, Emerson and Kershaw engineered a great knife with uncompromising functional design.

This knife also features the wave shaped feature, enabling the knife to be opened as it's removed from the pocket.
