    CQD Mark 1 Type E



    The award-winning CQD Mark I is one of the most envied pieces of equipment in the tactical industry. To make this landmark design available to budget-oriented end users, we are proud to introduce the new Mark I Type E. Functionally identical to the original manual version of the Mark I, the Type E features the same high-strength button-lock mechanism and secondary safety, recessed seatbelt/cord cutter, and carbide glass breaker. However, its handle is constructed of precision injection-molded reinforced nylon mounted to a 420J stainless steel frame. Its spearpoint AUS8A stainless steel blade boasts improved edge geometry for increased cutting performance and a low-profile black PVD-coated finish. Now you can have all the performance of the original Mark I at a price that fits every budget.

    SPECIFICATIONS:
    Blade Length: 3.750/95mm
    Overall Length: 9.500/241mm
    Blade Material: AUS8A stainless steel
    Blade Finish: Black PVD coating
    Edge type: Plain or partially serrated
    Handle Material: Injection-molded reinforced nylon with 420J stainless steel liners
    Pocket Clip: Right or left-side, tip-down carry
    Optional Accessories: Ballistic nylon belt pouch (204-XL), Accessory Sheath (200)

    I agree with the others that S&W knives are not high end. The price point reflects the quality. I have about eight or so to use as extras in BOB's. Get a quality knife. Don't go the mall ninja scarry look. Just do a little research, spend the money and be happy. A good locking survival knife can do just about anything well, look good and last a loooooong time. You will never be sorry for buying quality.

    I'm curious - what concern do you have about CRKT? I'm the first to acknowledge that they're not the best, but the ones I've used have been solid and functional. Why rule them out categorically?

    The last S+W folder I had was a piece. I wouldn't recommend them personally. Go with Spyderco.

    i would look at the beanchmade brand. they make one of the best. i have pickeup several of the s&w knife.
    get them cheap at the smokey mountian knife factory. have picked up some large folders types for $5.00 in the sale bucket. the larger ones does not hold up well for me. got my first auto beanchmade in 1997, daily carry, and it is still as good as day one.

    For a less expensive, yet solid knife I would look to Spyderco,Gerber or Cold Steel. The S&W knives are just too poorly made.

    The lower end Benchmades are excellent. I have a Pika folder and carry it everyday... the higher ends ones are too but maybe a little outside your price point.

    Yes, I'm a gun and knife snob, but I've been carry a Delica for almost two years now- its a great knife and it was like 30 bucks. I beat the crap out of it, it keeps going.

    Well...to quote a very close friend of mine "Buy the best...you'll only have to buy it once." That rings very true. In reality what I have found is an extra 15-20 bucks or so will not make or break you...if you are going to let your life depend on a tool or make a living with it, it needs to be quality.

    I'm a Ka-Bar freak...Love em and always will. I also dig Kershaw knives. I have seen knives in the past that were cheap. When I say cheap, I mean price point. Just because a knife is inexpensive, doesn't mean it's a bad knife! There are companies like Ka-Bar that offer a lot of knife for the money and put out quality products.
