Kershaw Knives and Emerson Knives have joined forces on a series of knives that combine the precision engineering of Kershaw with Emerson's uncompromising functional design. From the Kershaw manufacturer's catalog: Emerson's hard-use knives have earned many hard-core fans. Combined with Kershaw's own innovative technology, award-winning design, and top-quality production capabilities, we're proud to say that these high-performance knives will now be available to a much larger audience. Each Kershaw-Emerson knife includes the Emerson "wave shaped feature," also called the remote pocket opener, which enables the user to open the knife as it is withdrawn from the pocket. Imported from China.
