Emerson Knives has teamed up with Protech to offer a high quality production automatic version of the Emerson CQC-7, an American made automatic with quality design and high-tech production in an affordable platform. The frame is made from black hard anodized 7075 aluminum for lightweight durability while the blade is 154CM stainless steel for great all-around performance. This is a high quality collaboration that brings the best elements of Emerson design and Protech manufacturing to a single knife. This version features a black DLC Tanto blade, custom lined gray crosscut G-Carta top and Mother-of-Pearl button inlay.

Brand new, direct from Protech Knives, USA.

Blade: Paired with a razor sharp chisel grind, the Tanto point delivers high level durability while still providing solid cutting performance. Made from American 154CM stainless steel for balanced performance, the blade has a durable and corrosion resistant black DLC coating for discreet carry and use. The chisel, mid-height saber grind offers a good mix of strength and slicing performance that is a perfect fit with this tactical design. The blade deploys smooth and fast via a button operated coil spring mechanism.

Handle: The classic Emerson handle design is executed in super tough 7075 aluminum with a black, Class III, military grade hard anodization. The top is thick custom G-Carta (Micarta) in a smooth finish for a great look and feel in the hand. Jimping from the thumb ramp extends down the spine of the handle for added traction and control. This handle is secure and comfortable in a variety of grip positions and helps to keep the knife under 4 ounces for a great everyday carry weight. Smooth, reliable and intuitive, the button lock mechanism delivers secure operation during use. Construction is finished with black hardware and a generous lanyard hole.

Carries via a right hand, tip-up DLC coated stainless steel pocket clip.

Crucible 154CM: Originally developed as a stainless bearing steel, 154CM is an improved version of 440C with added molybdenum that offers improved resistance to pitting from corrosion, higher hardness for better edge retention and toughness similar to 440C. Similar to Hitachi ATS-34.
