Nice knives there, Trip Wire. I had an Emerson Commander, but another cop stole it from me.

Emerson's new SUPER CQC7 is a larger version of the previously-mentioned blade. I have one with the wave feature and LOVE it.

The picture I posted is of the Emerson 'Super" CQC7 w/Wave action!

I carry it every day and love it. I still have a normal sized Benchmark CQC7 with no assist of any kind on it.

yup, after having one for so long, and giving it to the kid (who now loves it) I had to replace with same. benchmade cqc. I couldnt find another I liked as much as that knife.

CQC Mark II

My insanely overpriced gift but a hell of a folder/utility knife.
Big beefy and 100% dependable. The sheath and it's attachment
loops did not last long, but the blade and body have been perfect.
Not a concealable by any means but as a field blade it cannot be beat
IMHO

These are my knifes:

On top: Emerson CQC-7 Super
2nd. Emerson CQC-8
3rd. Chris Reeve Sebenza

I have used the CQC-7 the most but i try to rotate them regularly.
I had a Emerson Commander but i gave that away as a birthday gift.
The wave feature is a neat thing to have and when i have the Sebenza in my EDC i miss it.

If i was used to BM 970 and wanted a similar knif i would go with the CQC-7 Super.

Ps. Sorry for the crappy pic.

What would be a nice folding knife for a rather inexpensive price, these are all expensive aren't they?

Hell, all I have is a kabar$39.99, a fake kabar $20 and a SOG dive knife which I believe was around $39-$49. As far as folding knifes all I have is a few cheap ones that I bought at the a surplus store for the wife to carry.

Also where do you all find these ones that you speak of? I see these in the blackhawk mags and that is way beond what I want to spend. I believe there called MOD which all seem to be 200 plus.

I've owned quite a few knives from Cold Steel, Spyderco, Gerber, Kershaw.....ect. but I always ended up carrying my Emerson. He has a bunch of good designs and the wave is much faster then any auto. If money is no object then check out the Strider SMF. I love the way it fit in my hand. Good positive feel. If thats not in the price range the buck strider is a great little knife too. Just sandpaper down the grip or it will tear up you pants and your hands.

Walt-
Define "expensive". How much is too much?

My Benchmade CQC7 cost ~$100, but I've been carrying it since 1995. If you spread the cost over time, it's like $8 a year. IMO, you get what you pay for. If I was spending less than $100, I'd get a CRKT. You can find a nice one for less than $50 and they are pretty well built.

I know I'm a little late on this one but I have a nice little collection of knives including 8 Benchmades (love them), 2 CRKT (ok), 2 Gerbers (again OK), and my new baby a CQC-15 Emerson Wave Folder. The Emerson is by far my favorite. If you haven't carried an Emerson or had to use it in a snap then you won't understand. The Wave is just amazing. Check it out here: http://www.emersonknives.com/miva/me...ory_Code=CQC15

For any of those interested in an Emerson don't get upset about the prices on there website. If you spend some time searching for one on EBAY you can get a great deal. I got mine for $150 brand new out of the box. The price on the Emerson page has it listed at $220.

Carry folders

Carried an Emerson CQC-7 with Wave into Iraq in 2003 - with follow-on duty as HRS contractor - only added a strip of skateboard tape to the grip but otherwise very reliable and handy CQB folder.

Today the pocket carry mix includes a Strider "Nightmare" and Emerson Bowie. Both are excellent pocket carry pieces with sure opening/lock-up and easy to maintain edges (correct blade geometry in the design phase).

Recently found a Benchmade CQC-7 "black blade" with serration. Brand new in box at local knife show. It is a favorite and kept tucked away as a "keeper".

we cant forget the yarborough

I dont know if it is to big for you but I love my yarborough. Granted it is a 7" blade but a wonderful knife! Abit expensive 300 bucks, if you dont get it given to you but well worth it. If you want to check it out go to bill harsey's sight or chris reeve.

Emerson Wave CQC-7 mini. Got it since 2005. Still as good as new. Probably one of the good 80$ I've invested in my life.

I was also a big fan of the Spyderco Tasman Salt Serrated. I tragically lost it in a diving accident.

I have carried the Emerson Commander for a few years now and am pretty happy with it. It's never been abused and the edge seems to hold up well.
There's a lot of garbage out there, and some real good quality stuff out there for a reasonable price, you just need to look carefully.
A cheap knife is normally just that, a cheap knife.

Thumbs up

As a sort of 'fighting' knife collector I have many knives to pick from. Al Marr was a team mate of my in the 17th & 12 SFA(A). So, when he was still alive I bought knives from him. He always added little things to my order, like engraving my wings, BOC and dive badge, etc. on them at no charge. So, I have (4) knives from him in my collection. They are mostly safe queens now. Two are folders.

I have two Randalls, one is the model 14 the other the model 1 w/stag handle and a compass in the butt cap. The #1 is my favorite as a fighting knife.

I have two Mark II Gerber knifes that I used in SWAT and one special Gerber presentation Mark !! with a wood handle that I was presented when I left the SWAT team. Also a Gerber San Francisco Shiv (by Blackie Collins) I used to wear it along with a Detonics Mark VI on my ankles when in LE Uniform.

Recently I purchased a Special 1st SFG(A) knife from 1st in Asia. I like it better than my Special signed Yarborough knife, which I was lucky enough to win over on the PS forum.

I have a few other Misc. knives as well.

My every day carry knife is an Emerson Super CQC7 with Wave action. I really like this one and it deploys faster IMO than an automatic knife without the legal hassles.
