    I Just Scored an Emerson Commander!!

    A friend of mine runs a knife store (www.thebrightedge.com) and I was making payments on a Microtech Halo III but opted to get the Emerson Commander BTS since, well, EMERSONS ROCK!

    Nice knife, I'd like to have one but I won't buy a knife with a liner-lock.

    Kenpo, The liner locks on my other Emerson's haven't failed yet. And from what I hear at the Usual Suspect Network forum, they rarely ,rarely do.

    Very cool - enjoy your knife! I have the mini-Commander. How do you like your Wave feature? (It's fun, but it can tear up your pants if you use it often.)

    I am a member of KOA (knife owners anonymous) - I have too many knives, or at least more than I need.

    I do tho still want a Kershaw BOA - just ''because''!

    Yeah, I know. But I've had too much bad luck with liner locks that I just don't trust them. If I were to buy another one, I'd be constantly waiting for it to fail and that's not the kind of attitude you want to have toward a tool that you may need really, really bad someday.

    That's just me, I'm glad they've worked well for you.

    I've kinda wanted and Emerson Commander from the first time I saw it. I'm not too crazy about liner locks though.

    I own a Commander and a PSARK; both liner locks fail the "spine whack" (against the heel of my hand!) consistently. I admire the design, but the fitting of the liner locks prohibits my carrying either of them!

    I've used a Commander on-duty for years and never had the liner-lock fail. Simply an awesome knife!

    Me likes my Commander!

    I've had my Commander for almost a year now and I love it. I've also heard so many negative comments concerning liner locks, that I put mine to the test. So far, I've had zero probs, and it stays locked.
    May the Schwartz be with you
