Here's a look at the Emerson Mini CQC-8 Horseman. I won this knife in a give-away provided by nycdave212.

Just a word of advice to anyone who buys an Emerson(or any other brand):
Invest in a small tube of Loctite Thread Locker BLUE 242. After one day of "playing", the pivot came loose as well as the clip screws. This is a known "issue" with Emersons(as well as others) and should not be considered a defect. Many knives have similar quirks.

*Note: The pocket clip on this knife is somewhat thin and bends easily. If you have issues with the clip bending or losing grip on your pocket, try this easy fix. **Any standard Benchmade clip has the exact same mounting hole positions and fits perfectly.** The Benchmade clips are thicker and retain their tension.

UPDATE: I have sent this knife to Emerson for warranty repair or replacement. (the knife was only 2 weeks old) The liner lock has been slipping, and when I wiggle the blade to test vertical play - it would sometimes fail completely. Not good. I will post another update when I get the knife back from Emerson. Stay tuned...

**UPDATE 2: Emerson is sending me a brand new Horseman as a replacement...

They (Dianne) called me to let me know what was going on. I don't know if they always do this, or if it was because I asked them to.

The people at Emerson Knives were VERY considerate, they have high standards in the way they conduct their business. They stand behind their knives 100 percent.
