Re: A genuine query

I actually looked at the axis lock and why it released from the handle with a flick and its actually a very simple reason when you pull the axis lock back it partially opens the blade only a 1/4 of an inch but that breaks the retention as such it does not open wholy by centrifugal force. Although it...

A genuine query

Does the axis lock on the Enlan knives make it technically a gravity knife? Although it is challenging to pull it right back when you do the knife opens easilly on centrifugal force requiring no slackening of the pivot screw infact with the phospher bronze on one side and teflon on the other washers...

For 2 all emersons are done in sprint runs with very high quality components so it will also have practical use not as a EDC because of of the lock but it will out perform most fixed bl...

Re: Happy New year all

A cat would be mashed if you used it to cut a oil drum in half the emerson can do that with only sharpening needed after. It is considered to be the best tactical folder ever made if you want to see over priced junk look at benchmade. By the way the £400 wasnt a emerson its a strider and is full tit...

Re: Happy New year all

The weird wave like protrusion from the back opens the knife as its pulled from the pocket and I know the history of the F/S but the emerson is a major centrepiece. The typical spec opps trooper would probably carry 4-5 knives one boot one something heavy bladed a folder and other types. Also its th...

Re: Happy New year all

They are legal for police military and collectors however most local stores wont stock them. Yes £170 for an emerson but it will be a peice with military heritage (although new) as the 7 was designed for use with the seals and sbs emmerson has been designing all folding knives for UK and US special ...

Re: Happy New year all

I think My first purchase will be a tenacious but I also plan to get either a custom hunter or skinner to send to the states for a friend who is known for reviews on lots of things but mainly knives. Mind you I could always rely on a budgeting loan and buy everything together lol

Re: My collection

Re: My collection

I actually got the gravity knife free from the man who it was issued to he worked on imingham docks and he was sat with me in the break room one day when my dad took me round where he worked and i listened to his stories of the war taking his perspective not putting him down. It was his reward to me...
